Since 1894, Paltinis - Hohe Rinne was the first mountain resort in Romania and it has been the favorite holiday destination for mountain lovers. The highly ionized clean air, the marked trails, the scenery with traditional sheepfold for Marginimea Sibiului or the modern ski slopes with exquisite panorama over Fagaras Mountains offer you the opportunity to enjoy an active and relaxing holiday any time of year. Just two steps away from Arena Platos slopes and sheltered from the main road by fir and pine trees we invite you to be our guest in the cozy atmosphere of a mountain inn. We offer cozy rooms, restaurant with traditional and international cuisine, children playground, barbecue area and free games for the whole family. Also we can rent you bikes, offer off road adventures and other paid activities.

I've been to Sibiu with work and found this place for relaxation, hiking and mountainbiking. Cozy and good food, it is elegant and quiet, away from the road. It's a 40 minutes ride from Sibiu, a 30 km road.

We've spent three relaxing days at Rafael. It's quiet and cozy and the food is excelent. Parking and playground also available. We enjoyed free activities like ping pong. Hiking in the mountains of Cindrel is also very refreshing.

The room was very small, the dining area small also. No menu, few options to choose from. No ventilation in the kitchen and it always smelled like food in the dining area and ground floor rooms. I Would never go back.

Dear Guest, We appreciate taking the time to write a review and we're sorry your stay wasn't as pleasant as it could be. We recommend all our guests to take a look on our website to see how large the rooms and dinning area is. We are a small, cozy mountain inn but we understand some people need for larger spaces. Hope you enjoy your futures stays in Paltinis, where ever you choose. Greetings.
