We stayed in Sinaia, at Smart Hotel with our dear Grivei (bernese mountain dog, 6 years old, about 60 kilograms) for three nights, full weekend in November 2017. We found the hotel on Tripadvisor, we liked tourists' impressions and called for reservation.
Upon arrival, we were pleasantly impressed from all points of view: hotel location, reception service, exterior and interior design, landscaping, cleaning, restaurant, spacious room, outdoor garden and trout river, parking. But I will tell them one by one.
The room is generous, very clean, with modern pieces of furniture and well maintained, large and comfortable bed and beautiful decorations. Big and very clean bathroom, showers with massage.
The balcony in the room is a very pleasant surprise, being like a spacious terrace with chairs and a table, with a superb view, clean air, quiet and bird song. Amazing view from our room.
Even if it is not huge, the hotel has an elevator which helps a lot if you have luggage’s. The reception area is not very spacious .... but the common spaces of the hotel (interior staircase, hallways) are wide.
Outside you can find the big surprise, especially if you are a nature lover.
The green space is landscaped, like a botanical garden. With an impressive variety of trees and plants, specific to mountain climatic conditions. A wealth of colors in all shades of green and brick. The entire courtyard is set up on high-rise steps, with sidewalks sloping among the garden plants. Each plant is very well maintained and has a story to tell ....
In some areas of the garden, exists small islands for relaxing and serving dinner (little private tree corner).
At the boundary of the property, the river is arranged likes a waterfall, and represents its own fish farm (trout).
Pets are allowed and the tax is free! Grivei was happy and treated with all the friendship and admiration at this hotel.
Staff in this hotel is nice and friendly. All employees are nice, helpful, and attentive.
From an architectural point of view, the restaurant is very original. The walls exhibit an impressive and unique collection of corkscrews (entered in the Guinness Book). The atmosphere is pleasant and quiet. Culinary preparations are tasty. The breakfast is not very varied, but was fine for us for all mornings.
Final conclusion: Just beautiful. We will return anytime with pleasure. Smart hotel, indeed. Smart Hotel, Sinaia, Romania.
