Really enjoyed our ice hotel trip with untravelled paths. The hotel is up in the mountains at 2,000m next to a frozen lake. There is a chalet nearby with toilets, showers, restaurant. I have been to the ice hotel in Sweden and I wasn't disappointed with the Romanian version. The rooms were decorated with ice chairs, double beds and snow... More

Having stayed at a couple of Romanian hotels which were very hot I was hoping this would be nice and cool. The bedding, sleeping bag and blankets made this nearly as hot as the others. Had to quickly take off beanie hat then thermals to be able to sleep. However the experience is not to be missed as it was... More

Just returned from a very good "Untravelled Paths" trip which featured one night at the Ice Hotel. We had a good time on this well balanced trip and really enjoyed the experience of staying in the Ice Hotel. As other reviewers have pointed out the meal is a little expensive but we wouldn't have wanted to miss it, after all... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Ice Hotel. The staff of the hotel and the chalet were marvellous. We enjoyed the snow sports on offer. We had a wonderful driver/guide/translator/travel companion called Dragos. He was a true gentleman providing assistance above and beyond what was expected. The quality of the staff and facilities have ensured a repeat visit from... More

The holidays you remember, the ones that come to mind when you think about ‘stuff you’ve done in your life,' tend to be the strange ones. The ones that felt like an adventure. I’ve been back from my trip with Secret Transylvania for what…three weeks, and already I find myself filing the entire experience under: Things I’m So Glad I... More

We spent a night at the ice hotel last week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The cable car ride is great and the views are stunning. Take a torch for the tunnel walk. The activities are well priced. We did not eat in the ice hotel but in the cabana which was fine and cheaper than ice hotel. A great... More

You've read it all here. One of a lifetime experience and definitely worth the price (in Sweden you'll pay 150% more). We found the sleeping bags warm enough to sleep through the night without any problems. Skip the ice hotel dinner though (definitely not worth 50euro per person) food actually is served on plates that have a layer of ice... More

Just got back from a great stay in Transylvania. We booked with Secret Transylvania and wasn't disappointed. Staying in a property about 10 minutes walk from the main house, we were pleasantly surprised. Accommodation was clean and modern, with everything you need. The owners, Di and Jez were great hosts who went out of their way to make sure we... More
