Gasthaus Maria
Ranked #1 of 2 Borlova B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I stayed at Gasthaus Maria on my way to Danube's Gorge at the end of August 2013. I enjoyed it so much that I stayed there for another two nights on my way home, although this had not been previously planned. From my point of view, this guesthouse has much to recommend it.

First, it is situated at about 21km from Muntele Mic resort, in a quiet and picturesque area.

Second, the place is very clean. It has large, bright and tastefully decorated rooms. However, some of them don't have direct access to a balcony. I also had a small issue with an unpleasant smell in one of the bathrooms. There are plenty of things to do around the house, like barbecuing or sunbathing. There is also a playing area for children.

Third, the home cooked meals were really tasty, and plentiful. In addition, the hosts, "buni Vali" and her husband, were very welcoming, warm, and attentive to my needs. As a bonus, pets are also allowed in the guesthouse, as the owners are animal lovers themselves.

In conclusion, I highly recommend this guesthouse for anyone looking for accommodation in the area. It is great for both families with children, and groups of friends.

There's a lot to say about this guesthouse for which I have mixed and contradictory feelings.

First, this is not a guesthouse/hotel/B&B or anything like that. It's a hut where the owners live and rent most of the rooms.
There is no restaurant in the area or at the pension, but, the owners can cook for you the dish of the day (when we were there they had fish soup and meat with potatoes);
If you're picky with your food (as I am) better bring your own food for your stay there (they have a fridge for the guests, so you can keep it there). We could also use their cutlery and dishes.

ROOMS:
Are really nicely decorated, spacious, clean. Some have balcony/terrace, some don't.
Hot water, TV in the room. Our bathroom stunk, but in the other rooms they didn't have this problem.
They have some bikes you can use, games you can borrow (card games); bikes for children etc..
A big garden where children can play.
They also have a PC with internet which anyone can use.

LOCATION
It's located around 2 km away from the village Borlova, in a lovely valley surronded by Muntele Mic (Small Mountain). When we were there there was a bigger pension being built just across the street.
They have a yard, 3 lovely dogs, it's lovely being there.
However, if you're looking for real mountain, this is not the right place for you. This is beautiful countryside with hills and greenery.

OWNERS
Radu, the owner, was nice and helpful, trying to make our stay there pleasant; he also helped with ideas for paths to follow on the mountain etc..
His father and mother also live there and help around the pension.
Radu and his father are nice and polite.
But, lady was offensive to us several times, acted impolitely, so we were always trying to avoid her, but she was everywhere, and it made me feel really unconfortable !

All in all, if it wasn't for the lady I would have given this guesthouse 5 stars, but I won't do that, since she always made me feel stressed out and unconfortable !

The location and the pension is really beautiful. All in all, It really depends on what you are looking for.
