Grand Hotel Balvanyos (Balvanyos Resort)
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Balvanyos
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Stayed at the Grand Hotel Balvanyos for 4 days. it was a pleasant stay, we got a suite as we had a 2 year old with us. the suite is very good size, clean, relatively recently refurbished, but nothing impressive about it. The staff is friendly in spite of the difficulties speaking either Romanian or English. The surroundings are great.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view - the mountains are majestic.

It is a very nice hotel in the middle of nature, with breathtaking view. The hotel looks very good, the rooms are very big, clean and very nice staff. The air is very clean and a lot of stuff to do. Near is the Saint Ana Lake were you can swim and enjoy the sun, or you can take a mountain trip. The breakfast could be more divers.
An excelent choice to relax.

Great hotel, very relaxing and the staff was very welcoming. The room was excellent, cozy big bed, with a very big balcony and the view was breath-taking. Although the road was very bumpy, it was worth the effort. The silence and birds singing in the morning were the icing on the cake.
As a minus, the tv was too small for that big room(double).

The building is nice, the surroundings are fantastic but...no AC in the rooms, no swimming pool as expected for a 4 star hotel, our guide was Romanian but he has huge difficulties to communicate with the locals because lots of personnel do not speak Romanian (and that's in Romania!) and the most important and scary thing is that the hotel was previously a Tuberculosis Hospital. I wonder if all the TB germs were killed or they still wandering around...

Room Tip: Even if the view is not so great, in the summer ask for rooms less exposed to the sun and avoid the...

It can be a little difficult to reach the hotel due to bumpy road but once there it totally worth it.
The hotel has a high location with astonishing view of the surroundings. Because if a bit far from the other accommodation places of the area you can have a well-deserved moment of intimacy and enjoy the nature. Rooms are clean and quite large but the prices are on a higher end for Romania. Breakfast is typical international. A pool and a fitness center would be really great.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with view over the valley.

Location: I arrived through the bumpy road from Lake Sf. Ana - once you get out of the forrest, it is the first hotel you see - easy to spot. I suppose there is an easier way to get to the hotel from Balvanyos itself.
Room: I had a nice, quite large room, just above the entry into the hotel, with a lovely sunny balcony. Comfortable bed and relatively new furniture depict the full picture, I think. TV ok, could use a few more channels. Bathroom ok, clean, good towels, could use a bit more attention to details (shampoo bottle was not full).
Breakfast and other meals: The selection is not large, but sufficient.
Staff: ok, helpfull, although I did not feel a warm wellcome.

It's a great hotel, great rooms, very good location, I would say the 4 star would be realistic only if they would have a pool. So for me is only 3 star. Breakfast OK, comfortable beds, good service, excellent location. Too expensive for RO
