We stayed at Ioana Hotels for 2 nights in March 2012. The hotel is very well situated, not far from Sinaia town centre, but in a quiet, plenty of trees area. If you have a GPS map, or a plain mobile map application it shouldn't be too dificult to locate it. Otherwise, it may get a bit difficult, as there are too many hotel signs around Sinaia. I believe it to be difficult as well when reaching it from the railway station, wich is quite far. In this case, probably the best option would be a taxi.
The room we stayed in was really large, with a large balcony and bath. The rooms are really nice decorated, with natural stone bricks and relaxing lightning. I particularly liked the sink support, made in natural, patined wood, and the large bathroom window.
The bed proved to be a bit too high for our 3 years old boy, but was really large and comfortable instead.
The hotel has a restaurant as well and breakfast or lunch or dinner in there may be quite an experience, as it's placed out in the open and covered and heated during cold seasons. Tables are placed among tree trunks, on wood floors constructed over plain earth.
They offer a buffet breakfast, quite varied and tasty. The restaurant menu is also varied, but I haven't tried anything but salads.
While in there, you can benefit from free sauna and extra charge massage. They also offer free baby sitting (upon previous booking) and a children play ground that could use an up-to-date. "Taverna sarbului" restaurant is walking distance away, but I'd prefer having meals inside their own restaurants. If you're a wine drinker, you'll be surprised with the really high scores of most common wines, that may be found in any supermarket.
