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

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!
