We stayed here as part of an outstanding tour conducted by Transylvania Live. I had read about this hotel years ago. During the Communist times in the 1980s it was built on the Borgo Pass where they estimated that Dracula's Castle would have been built if Bram Stoker's novel was true. However, historians and geographers reckon it is more likely... More

Visited during a 7 day trip with foreign tourists. The landscape is outstanding, but I consider the hotel is a kitsch. Despite the accommodation is comfortable, I don't find this hotel a good idea for the idyllic place.

Seems a family hotel with friendly people. For healthy people because of a lot of stairs and no elevator for the luggage. Dark entrence like one expect from a dracula castle. Near the hotel are some real local old graves on a little cemetary. Good food and drinks and "bloody" desert. For a little additional price one can experience an... More

I visited this hotel with my son as part of a Vlad Tepes tour. This was one of the few places (believe it or not) on the tour where some effort had been made to recreate the surroundings of Bram Stokers Dracula. Set in beautiful forestry with a large cross (lit at night) and monastery on the opposite hill, it... More

The rooms are OK, the location on the Tahuta pass is great, but to climb 2- steps of the stairs (at least) with the luggage to join the reception plus (for me (18) to join my room, only one solution, let your luggage at the entrance, and after the check-in, ask for someone to bring the luggage in your room....

Great place to visit trying to pass the Carpathians mountains to Moldavia! The panorama is absolutly stunning! Something to be remembered!! Hotel - there are minuses but there are a lot of things that compensate. Restaurant - great waiters; recomand the Dracula desert!

It was a great weekend getaway from the city. It is truly worth visiting, lovely view, amazing terraces from where you can enjoy what Romania has to offer. The restaurant staff was extremely polite and the food was excellent! Dracula desert!
