My husband and I ,both in our late sixties, went to the ice hotel as part of the Untravelled Paths package to Romania. It was a family holiday for us with my sons family. We had a marvellous time. The tour guide Christina was outstanding in the way she looked after us. The Location of the ice hotel is amazing as is the hotel itself, staying there was quite definitely a unique experience.
The other two hotels in Romania were very good too and well located. The transport was comfortable and the driver pleasant and helpful .
I have a few suggestions: I would have liked the guide to have told us a bit about Romania and its people.
Also we stayed an extra day to see Bucharest but everything was closed on New Year's Eve ! It would have been nice to have known that.
