I booked and paid for two persons, half board, 2 nights. A situation occurred on the morning of the first day so I went alone. I asked to receive the lunches instead of the breakfasts and the dinners for which I paid and they got my money. They refused and invoked a stupid bureaucracy about the agency. Actually, I paid for something, they did not deliver and even refused to replace the delivery. So much about their flexibility and customer-orientation. They are keen to round up their income amid these covid times and make use of any situation to gain more and deliver less. They even asked me to pay for one drink, although they had my money for two breakfasts and two dinners! Moreover, it is the second time when I receive a one-bed room instead of two-bed rooms. Well, they said all rooms had joint beds and that they could separate them - by 10 cm ! So do not go there with your boss / colleagues because you will sleep in the same bed. Only lovers accepted.

We always come back with pleasure to this place for the area and the special view. For the location and staff I could give 5 stars but there are also things that have deteriorated since our visit last year (I stayed in the same room) for which I gave only 3 stars. Although the current situation is not a happy one due to the restrictions caused by the pandemic, the staff tried to respect the rules and impose them on tourists. The temperature was reached on arrival for those accommodated and those who only came to eat at the restaurant were also checked and the other security measures were applied for breakfast or dinner. The hotel is well maintained and the rooms are clean. The staff is very friendly and strives to satisfy all requests, although this year we found among the waiters a few "imported" from other countries. You can pay with holiday vouchers. But I must mention with regret some things that have deteriorated compared to last year: the sofa bed in the room could not be used by our daughter because it was visibly damaged and the first night was a torment for all of us. The maintenance man came and even photographed the frame of the sofa to show that it is damaged and needs to be repaired. Despite the goodwill of the staff who changed the sofa (with another from another room) it was not comfortable, probably too much use, being unbalanced and the mattress made a hole in the middle. I think it would be necessary to re-evaluate the furniture in the rooms and replace it with new ones. I did not comment on the price per night but for the requested price the conditions must be good and you can rest because I did not get the room at a discount. Also, although the bathroom should have had a heated floor, in the room I stayed in it did not work and the curtain was probably broken by a very hurried tourist. The room lacks a trash can, the only one being a small one with a flap in the bathroom. There is a coffee machine in the room. The food served in the evening for dinner is average, without excelling. I could say that it is a little below last year's level. Lots of garlic, fried foods, sour cream, oil (the pilaf from the first night lay in a puddle of oil so I gave it up). The menu should be designed in such a way as to allow those who are on a diet or are vegetarians to eat. I only tested the à la carte menu so I can't give details. And to end with good news, from August 15, the Pestera - Babele cable car operates again, which makes it easier to access from Busteni, through the Busteni-Babele cable car.

I booked for 4 nights at the end of September. It was a great stay even it rained a lot. The hotel was very clean, the staff very nice and discrete. Buffet breakfast and dinner was tasty and various. The extra services a little pricy, but is normal for a hotel located in mountains. Overall it was a great stay and I recommend the location.

A cozy hotel in the mountains with warm people and clean and modern rooms. A lot of outdoor activties around, like Ialomicioara Cave or a lot of others, like climbing the mountains around or hiking. Concerning the food: is good but there it is place to improve the diversity for the breakfast and dinner menu. The a'la''carte menu for lunch is in the range of a 4**** hotel. Overall, in Moroeni area I consider it the best hotel in terms of value for money.

I was expecting a 4 stars experience with regard to breakfast and dinner also. Perhaps the best way to improve the experience they offer, would be to hire more personnel and provide them with a written checklist of the things they have to provide. And be less greedy, have more quality products... The food was most of the cases served (almost) cold, the coffee machine had troubles delivering its products due to various causes (milk finishing, water finishing, self-cleaning etc.), the food offer was not diverse, but not very tasty either. Staff is not very good with English skills (expect for the friendly foreign employees, from whitch the locals might learn from). The emails that were sent to me by the hotel contained pdf with non-functional links (I think the cancellation policies and the menu are quite important and one should be allowed to read them). The prices were not visible in a transparent manner (although the CoVid cautions, you could still make them visually available). There was always the sensation that if you do not arrive in time, you will not find a place at the tables. The cue forming every time where the food was being served reminded me of the Ceausescu regime. In the room, it sounds like the small rack/hanger communicates to the one in the other room - so it is loud when you want to rest, but your neighbor has other plans. The 4* of this hotel are not comparable to the other 4* I have visited in RO and abroad. The only reason I would stay again at this hotel is its positioning that is perfect for hiking routes and the view from the room towards Babele.
