“comfortable”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Location: I arrived through the bumpy road from Lake Sf. Ana - once you get out of the forrest, it is the first hotel you see - easy to spot. I suppose there is an easier way to get to the hotel from Balvanyos itself.
Room: I had a nice, quite large room, just above the entry into the hotel, with a lovely sunny balcony. Comfortable bed and relatively new furniture depict the full picture, I think. TV ok, could use a few more channels. Bathroom ok, clean, good towels, could use a bit more attention to details (shampoo bottle was not full).
Breakfast and other meals: The selection is not large, but sufficient.
Staff: ok, helpfull, although I did not feel a warm wellcome.

It's a great hotel, great rooms, very good location, I would say the 4 star would be realistic only if they would have a pool. So for me is only 3 star. Breakfast OK, comfortable beds, good service, excellent location. Too expensive for RO

The hotel is situated in the middle of the forest, is an oasis of peace and tranquillity far away from the noise of the cities. The area is very clean, with no pollution at all. The staff was very helpful, careful and polite. I reccomend this hotel both for summer and winter, I will definitely would like to return in this beautiful place.

A good-sized bedroom (lovely view of forest, with balcony) and well-appointed bathroom.

A huge minus was, as others have remarked, the absence of air-conditioning. It should be a must for this type of room. The room was (very) hot and not cooled by opening the balcony door, during the day. I was offered another room, but am sure it would have made no difference. I had to have the balcony door and window open through the night, to allow sleep; then, at 0430h, was woken by the frenzied and sustained barking of a pack of dogs. (I was later told they were harassing a bear that came to rummage in the waste bins.)

Fortunately, I was able to get back to sleep.

This hotel, however, is a conundrum. I do not know how it can be 4****: no pool, no air-conditioning, no spa of any worth. Quality of sleep is one of the major factors in assessing a hotel’s level of comfort and this is decidedly lacking in the respect. I would love to have rated this establishment higher and feel it could be improved with relatively minor adjustments, as remarked by both myself and others.

Room Tip: It is difficult to know whether not to suggest a different hotel !

Nice 4-star hotel, recently renovated, clean rooms, good service, beautiful nature surroundings, enough parking places.

Minus points:
- no air conditioning (A/C) in any room (only in hotel lobby and restaurant)
- very, very hot room during the summer even if it was a north-facing room - even if we left the window opened all day and night (the window opens only partially)
- very hot hallways (no A/C and no possibility to open any window)
- noisy during the night, due to some water pumps and dogs barking
- no swimming pool, only a sauna
- no printed guide inside the rooms about hotel facilities (room service etc..)
- defective TV set

Room Tip: Choose a north-facing room, at 2nd or 3rd floor, not 4'th floor (very hot during the summer).

I stayed in one of the appartment, at the last floor, right above the entrance and I can say it was almost perfect. The view is amazing and the room spot on.

The service is really good, even is some of the staff has problems with their romanian (the hotel is located in an area with a majority if of hungarian speakers).

In the same area is Saint Ana Lake and it''s really easy to get there by car, or a bit harder with one of the bikes that you can rent from the hotel, for like 4 euros/day.

The backdowns of it is that besides a sauna there are no spa facilities. Even booking a massage session becomes a bit complicated and you end up giving it up.

The positive thing about it is that when I was there they were finishing the works on a flying fox line and in about a week they said it's gonna be opened to the public. That would be fun to try.
