We couldn't have asked for a nicer hotel. Beautiful location, great rooms with balcony and plenty of tasty, healthy food. Stunning views, day & night. Skies are so clear you see the milky way. From the hotel you can set off on gorgous walks, either through a gorge or in the mountains. You can even visit a hide in the... More

The bear hide was one of the highlights of our trip to Romania, very cool and quite a unique experience with so few people around. The place itself is situated beautifully, and immaculate (really... immaculate). By Romanian standards, it's quite expensive. But for us it was roughly a bit more than we would usually like to pay for a hotel.

Our final stop before Bucharest on a fantastic trip to Romania with friends. On our arrival, in early afternoon, we were greeted by Katharina. She was very knowledgeable about the local area and was able to suggest possible walking routes and places of interest. After a late afternoon bowl of soup we set off for a pre-arranged trip to a...

This adventure was the finale to a wonderful two weeks guiding our friends on their first visit to Romania. We arrived early afternoon and after an early evening bowl of soup were taken down the mountain to see some bears at a nearby conservation project. We saw seven or eight including a mother with two small cubs, before returning to... More

Lovely relaxed visit after the slightly tortuous climb up the hill in the car. Welcomed by our hosts and made to feel very welcome. Would highly recommend the visit to see the bears. The location is stunning and the guides helpful and knowledgable. We were welcomed back after 10pm with some delicious food. Breakfast is plentiful and you are encouraged... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here as part of an Exodus walking holiday, it was fantastic! Very clean and comfortable hotel with lovely food, I am vegetarian and the dinners were always delicious and nutritious.

This is a guest house located in a very nice rural area. We had to take a dirt and gravel road to get there, but once we arrived we were not disappointed! Katrina is a fantastic host and she spent a lot of time talking to us about this area, Romania and things to do around there. In my opinion,... More
