“Pretty cozy hotel with appealing style but also with couple of dissapointments!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Rizzo is a two years old hotel with pretty remarkable interior design. The rooms have a charming atmosphere by being quite elegant, large and bright. They have comfy beds and lcd tv. The entire hotel is an example of what an inteligent design can do.
Still their efforts of making a difference within the other accomodation choices from Poiana Brasov were spoiled by couple of issues which turned over what should be an excellent hotel. This means that the bathrooms are unbelievable small and tight. The shower hose had some leakings due to its outer metal layer loosed at one end so much you could see the plastic tube underneath. Finally wireless was usable, had a decent signal especially in the restaurant, but not enough bandwidth or constant strength to do anything but web surfing.
Bottom line - it's a very good hotel, but with some glitches that put it on the edge.

We are here now and want to write a few words because we love the Rizzo Boutique. The service is friendly, the food is very good (get the included breakfast choice), the views of the pine tree woods and surrounding mountains are amazing, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Vasile (the restaurant manager) is a great host. He gave us nice recommendations regarding the authentic Romanian cuisine as well as recommendations for day trips to the mountains. This is definitely the place to stay for a retreat!

Room Tip: Book a suite: large, beautiful and totally worth it!! Try their original recipe for papanashi dess...

I appreciated the effort made by the whole team/stuff to make us feel welcome.
I also enjoyed the spaciousness of the appartment.
The view is indeed extraordinary - pine-trees only!


On the downside: the spa that is being advertised is far from the truth, both as facilities and atmosphere. The Jacuzzi was partially working, the sauna was out of order (advertised as usch, the rumour was that it was ok, but consumed too much energy) for the entire period of time that we stayed there (5 days).

Room Tip: The appartments are indeed ideal for families.

The services were very poor, no bar after 10 pm, the restaurant food wasn't great and the management didn't care at all about the complains we had. Also the rooms and bathrooms were very small not suited for a 4 star hotel.

although they did put some time and effort into building it i think they haven't decided between practicality and design. it is a mix of both, but doesn't score great points in neither category.
we were a group and had a special package, but we were not impressed by the lunch we were served. the breakfast on the other hand was appropriate for its 4*.
The rooms are nice and with a forest view.

Room Tip: ask for forest view
