Very rud staff, waiting 30 minute for a soup. Simple food, nothing special. Hotel staff is arrogant. Seems 30 years back in time. Stay 2 hours in the lobby to check in. Thisbis the worst place I've been. Do not go there.

Place is good. It's location is the strongest part with preety view on both sides of the building. Rooms are little bit old school and one can feel that the hotel it self was updated in "old system" but it's nice and clean. Food service was very good.

A very big hotel with large rooms, but built without thinking about comfort. Cheap materials and an unfriendly design. Breakfast was average. Nice setting but about 4 km from the city centre of Sinaia.

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...

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 Seems very outdated.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.
