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.

Bucharest, Romania1 contribution
Over the phone, we were told they have a room inside for the equipment, but when we got there, they told us we need to leave it outside in the snow. The food was great, but very little options and quite expensive. The administrators were great, but they seemed to be overworked and stresses a lot. The owner did not seem to care.

The place is gorgeous but unfortunately the menu is not very large, as the meals are not big and you cannot choose what you desire to eat. Good to stay but to eat somewhere else where the menu is varied.

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.
