Had an overnight stay here with my wife whilst we were on our way into the mountains. The first problem we faced with it was finding it as it is 5+ kms away from the main strip of Sinaia and so we had to take a taxi from the station. As taxis are, quite, cheap in Romania it was more... More

Hotel location: the hotel is located on the edge of town about 5-6 km from the center, so if you want to go in the center to walk around/do some shopping/visit stuff, you should have a car. The hotel and area around it are quiet, surrounded by forest. So if you want to relax, this might be a good hotel... More

A bit communist. The food wasn't very good. It was fresh but not very tasty. The rooms were clean and big. It needs a bit of upgrading. Seems very outdated. Nice pool area. Nice views. It has a small club. We had some problems check in.

20ish year old hotel, everything looks outdated but maintained ("Romanian style").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...

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
