Villa Ermitage
Ranked #2 of 73 Busteni B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 June 2014

I am from Bucharest and I went through Busteni resort on Prahova Valley countless time, but never thought to spend a weekend.
Some time ago, I and my husband visited Castle of Cantacuzino and then, by accident we discovered "Villa Ermitage", where we had an excellent lunch.
I can say that this cozy place stuck in our minds along with it's lovely ambiance and carefully staff, who have delighted us a lot.
Thus, last Saturday we woke up after a hot and stirred week in Bucharest, and on the spur of a moment, we thought to escape to the mountains, away from the heat of the metropolis.
Naturally, we have chosen "Villa Ermitage" and we weren't wrong at all.
Due to it's amazing view to the Caraiman Mountain, the hotel is very nice, intimate and perfectly situated, suitable for everyone's age.
The room arrangement and furniture gives you a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Mrs. Aris was extremely helpful and courteous.
Very good food and professional staff services.
The ambiance was fantastic there.
It is a place where you can always return with pleasure among friends.
I highly recommend "Villa Ermitage" fot it's management quality, services and way of relaxation.

Room Tip: Do the booking in advance :)

I have been in Busteni several times. Once i decided to try Villa Ermitaj..
And i remained completly satisfied.. It has a great look on one of the greats view of Romanian Mountains.
The rooms are spacious and with wonderfl view to the mountains. also its located near a monastery,that we have visited also.
When we get there, we where afraid that it would be far from the teleferic, but there is a short cut road, and in 10 minute you are there..
The administrator of the Villa is really nice and was very helful in everything.
The breakfast is pretty good, but the dinner is just wow.. the best restaurant is out there..
We enjoyed our time... And promiced that we will definetly come back..

Unfortunately, we had only 1 night to stay here. The view from our room of the mountains and the monastery were breathtaking. The owner and her son are both charming. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the included breakfast was wonderful. We also decided to have our dinner her and it was excellent.

Room Tip: If you get a choice, ask for room 12.

We came to Villa Ermitage two years ago on the spur of a moment dinner trip following the walk to the Cros at the top of the Babale cable car. We vowed to come back and stay.

This spring we made good on that promise with a surprise two night visit on the train from Bucharesti less than two hours away.

Robert and family made us and our little one feel right at home in a perfect room, with everything we needed.

The atmosphere, the service, the food, the dramatic location at the Caraiman Monastery all contributed to a peaceful and wonderful stay.

Would we go back? Sorry already booked for six of us return in August this time straight from Bucharesti airport.

Nuff said!

I had booked in advance a lunch for a group of 30 people. All my emails were answered promptly and professionally, they were nice and flexible when we called to let them know we were going to be 30 minutes late.

When we entered we were greeted warmly by the owners and waiters. The owner told us the history of the place and the unique antiques decorating beautifully the restaurant. He was there the entire time making sure we were comfortable and everything was great.

The food was amazing, really fresh, prepared then and there: meatball soup, chicken leg stuffed with chicken liver and greens, imperial papanash dessert.

The place is located in a beautiful mountain scenery looking out at Caraiman cross and Monastery. All 30 people voted that we should give this restaurant 5 stars.

We spent 4 nights with a group of 7 friends there and had an amazing time. The place is perfectly situated direct at the monastery with an amazing view to the mountains. The walk to the cable car takes you less than 10 minutes. The best thing is the hotel is away from the busy main street running through Busteni.
The rooms are really cute and come with around 20 € to 25 € to an astonishing price. The restaurant of the house is really nicely decorated, kitchen and service quality have been outstanding. The owners try to help you organizing trips and have been always around in case of any help needed.
We will for sure come back there and can only recommend it!!
