Reviewed March 20, 2014

Very nice old building but the rooms are not 4 star it is a 3 star level hotel. cold in the room. It is very close to the Peles castle.The continental breakfast was very tasty.The staff was ok not very friendly. Wi-fi is not useable in the room but if you are lucky at the public spaces.

This hotel is long past it's glory days but still retains some of it's elegance and grace. I love old hotels and I found this hotel attractive specially with it's location in the Carpathian mountains. The rooms are small and cramped but the beds are comfortable. The room I stayed in still had it's vintage furnitures. The public areas have lovely chandeliers but also those hideous looking leatherette sofas. The hallways leading to the rooms are dark. Breakfast is buffet style and has pretty adequate choices. I felt odd that they kept on playing American songs from the 50's in the dining area. It was almost like you were transported to another time and era.

Old classic hotel located in the park. Short walk from the train station and to main street. Short walk up the hill to Peles Castle. The exterior is grand. Interior looks grand but the lighting is very dark. I had a nice stay here, but it is a 3 star level hotel, so be prepared. Do not expect a lavish experience. The rooms are small and hallways are very dark. The bed was comfortable though. Don't have such high expectations, and you will like the place. See the pictures.

Exterior look (classic palace, recently repainted) and location in the park are marvelous. Same impression gives you the entrance hall. Rooms, especially those with street view, are small, crowded, uncomfortable and dark even with artificial lighting. Bathroom has unpleasant smell and bath and sink are draining poor. Bath cosmetics and breakfast are rather poor. On the other side, personnel is fair and a great night sleep is possible due to silence environment.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the park are bigger and the view is beautiful

Wholeheartedly recommended.
This old historical building overlooks the quiet Sinaia central park.
It used to be the meeting place of the old Romanian bourgeoisie and it is incredible to experience what fine living used to mean.
The hotel is newly refurbished and quite low lit, without being unpleasant; rooms are small and intimate, personnel is friendly.

I recommend having a nice cigar in the deep leather armchairs in the lobby. This hotel is a must.

Room Tip: Ask for a park view room.

Built about the same time as Titanic, the 100m corridors and huge reception spaces remind me of the great liner. The beds were the best quality experienced in Romania whilst he shaving mirror, weighing scales, slippers and bath robes were wonderful touches that made our stay just great.
The staff couldn't be more helpful and the breakfast was absolutely fine. They even cooked just for me fresh scrambled eggs with peppers and cucumbers just as I like it. And there is Fresh expresso coffee as much as you want.
Please stay at this hotel whenever possible to keep these great old places going.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the park for best light and atmosphere

Decent rooms, faded but stil glorious. Great views and and value for money. Breakfast is a bit odd. The cooked food was not good but we enjoyed ourselves nevertheless. Recommended.

The public gardens are good, but a warning....We arrived at lunchtime and had prepared our own picnic in a cool box. We sat out on the grass in the gardens but after 20 mins were joined by the most officious policeman ever; apparently no one is allowed on the grass! There were no signs nearby saying this but we apologised and made to move back to the pavement. This wasn't enough for our new friend, however; he demanded passports, driving licences and then asked me to leave my family and accompany him somewhere else, presumably the station. My Romanian is only 3 months old so I didn't understand everything he was saying. I refused to leave my family and then he brought out the cuffs! A crowd had gathered by now and when I asked for his name he suddenly backed off and drove away on his police scooter.

Room Tip: Ask for the view.
