This is a typical hostel going worst and worst. It has been a great place to be, you can feel it. The standard room is still confortable but many minor faillures with the different attendances provide frustration. The food is well done and good. However, during SUMMER TIME, the swimming pool, quit small, is closed on Mondays and sometimes during... More

I thought this would be a nice hotel so we booked one night so we can visit the peles castle. Don't do it. Carpet is dirty and has holes. The whole building smells like smoke. Furniture and sheets are very bad. Everything in the bathroom and the room is like a trashy hotel. This place is not nice at all.

We've been there with the kids for the swimming pool. Except that the price is too expensive for what they offer, a very small swimming pool with almost no room for swimming, the service is very bad. We've ordered something from the day bar and the waiter was very rude, at the end, not happy with the tip we've left... More

The pool was in good condition,and the jacuzzi also a big advantage. The only negative aspect are the prices,which in my opinion are a... More

Sinaia is a beautiful resort town in the Carpathian mountains, a place with breathtaking views and stylish architecture. A residence city for the king of Romania and for the royal family. Here you find one of the most beautiful castles in Europe, the Peles Palace. It is just amazing. This beautiful place does not have a luxury hotel or resort,... More

This hotel used to be something, now it is not. Even worse, it is owned by the state, the protocol agency of the government. This means that if you come as regular tourist you will pay more and get less than the state officials. Actually you will pay part of their bill. When it comes to the location, it is... More

This is really good hotel if you are staying in Sinaia. Rooms are spacious with big balconies overlooking the mountains. It's really amazing to drink your morning coffee while enjoying the amazing view on the forest that's all around. Breakfast was great. Staff is very kind. I hadn't chance to use the pool area, but my boyfriend said it was... More
