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

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!

The qouted address: 4 Piatra Fantanele, Bistrita, Rumänien - is more than 40 km away from the correct address: 427363 Piatra Fantanele, DN 17, Bistrita-Nasaud The hotel is a "dream hotel", in manner of the story of Dracula. It has 3 stars and it is middle class, but it's fun to stay there and definitely above 3 star average. I... More

This is a rather kitschy Dracula themed hotel located in Borgo Pass. We were doing a Dracula tour so we did not mind staying in this hotel for one night. We arrived at night and the hotel looked great from the outside specially on a full moon. I think our group were the only people staying in the hotel on... More
