It was not quite as pretty as Agapaia, however it was very nice and quite tranquil. There did not seem to be access to the church. There did not seem to be any charge for the visit. There is a lovely garden shaded by cedar...More

Varatec Monastery is a must in a tour of monasteries. First of all, the road toward the monastery is very special. The monastery itself is not better, not worst than others but gives you a very good feeling. Is clean and organised and very friendly....More
We were a group of four and we were fortunate enough to have arranged for an overnight stay within the monastery ground by Axa Travel. Varatec is the largest monastery in Europe and there are four hundred nuns who live in houses around the monastery...More
If you are traveling from Piatra Neamt this is normally the first place to visit on the monastery trail. Note that the main church appears to be undergoing some major refurbishment inside. It is full of sturdy wooden scaffolding, meaning you can't really see much...More

2 book in Monastery its not possible. If u r lucky ull find rooms, but u can find accommodation near Varatec Monastery and i think its better in this way. U can visit all 5 monasteries (Agapia, Agapia Veche, Varatec, Sihla and Sihastria in first day and in the second 1 u can visit Cetatea Neamt (Castle) and Vidraru dam. If u cant visit all of this u must stay another night, its worth it.
So ... can accommodate in Targu Neamt ... sorry dont know any nice location, but near Neamt Castle its a hotel and look OK ... from outside.
Enjoy ur trip and welcome to Romania!
