20ish year old hotel, everything looks outdated but maintained ("Romanian style"). We had the suite and that is huge (two rooms, two toilets, huge terrace). Breakfeast is average but sufficient. Pool is nice (but closed on Monday, unbelievable they do that on the day almost everything cultural and fun is closed). Don't expect too much and you will enjoy the... More

Great place for families with children because of the pool. If you are young, you really have not a lot to do. It is far from center, about 40 - 50 min walk. Th restaurant closes at 11:30 pm and the bar earlier. Rooms are pretty ok, food nothing spectacular, services average. In the restaurant, at dinner time, they play... More

I visited Mara Hotel, last year in December. The hotel provides all the neccessary facilities for a three star hotel. It’s a big hotel, with eight floors, has a big restaurant, conference room and a disco. I had a room at the 7th floor with an amazing view towards the mountain, the room was clean and spacious. The pool area... More

As in the title, there is nothing special about this hotel to make you come back (haven't visited the pool, I must say that). Although the staff was nice, the food was at minimum level and the room had some oldish furniture, they need a rebranding in this area soon. No locker in the room and the bathroom equipment needs...

we spent an weekend there, it was nice. The food wasn't so good but we only ate Breakfast here so it was ok. Our room was very big and bright but it was a little water dripped from the ceiling. services ok-ish, not very nice but acceptable.

An average hotel, not sure if 3 stars are quite real. In the room the temperature was 28 degrees with heater on and 19 with heater off. You cannot choose a normal temperature so the sleep quality was very poor. The restaurant is normal, the service sometimes it is not what you expect from a 3 stars hotel, but you... More

It's true, I had not come with huge expectations; nonetheless I chose it to spend the new year 2016 as a result of a reasonable offer. I'd known the place since the early 2000s, but had not stayed in the recent years. Rooms are minimally decorated and overall the impresson is that it needs substantial investment in bringing it up...

Outside Sinaia, old furniture but quite clean and hot inside. Nice view from the room and from the restaurant. Small indoor and cold swimmingpool. Good food at the restaurant with medium prices. Problems with the lightening inside the room. The coffee maker inside the room was empty.
