“Almost excellent, but reception staff is a let down”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2010

I live and work abroad and I only come to Romania for holidays. This november I travelled a lot around Romania and also stopped for a weekend at Cota 1400 - Sinaia. Picked up this hotel for two reasons. First - the location - away from the hussle and bussle of the town and second for the value of money - not expensive at all.
Everything has been second to none, except the reception personnel who almost ruined a beautiful stay. By all means, the rest of the personnel were excellent: waiters, housekeeping, but not the reception - very disappointing. I myself work as a Front of House Manager and found in particular the staff at the front desk a let down. There has been no welcome, no smily faces, no willingness in assisting or helping, just a sharp and desinteressed attitude. I have paid in numerar upon arrival my room and my sister's room for two nights - of course in advance. When I had to check out the receptionist on duty has asked me to pay again for one night. It has taken her half an hour to discover that was their mistake!!! What I would strongly recommend is to ask for a statement or a bill or something to prove the payment...

Been here many times, last time in January last year! The prices are very good even in high winter season. Indeed there are 2 types of rooms, new ones on upper flloors and old ones. To be honest, I preffer the old ones with the white furniture, they are bigger and better. Very nice, immaculate and huge bathrooms. Incredible views of Sinaia and mountains, good service, free parking, free wireless internet, very good breakfast and food generally. We used as well the jacuzzi and sauna, worked perfectly but you need to book it in advance, like this you get it only for yourselves.
During winter season, might be difficult to get there by car. You need an SUV or 4x4 transmission.
I really reccomend it for families, for winter activities , sightseeing and rest during summer.

Hotel Cota 1400 is situated near the ski slope. It offers a wonderful panorama of Sinaia city.

There are two types of rooms: ones have modern furniture (like my own) others have Louis XV style furniture (of course, not original!), I did not liked the last ones.

The hotel is very old (it was built in 1939) and though it was renovated several times from then you can feel a vague smell (probably some mold).

Liked: panorama from the conference room, large balcony, free parking

Not liked: expensive for conditions offered, far from the city
