The restaurant is quite good with reasonable prices. The way you share the room for luggage with others is quite questionable. During the night it was...

We booked this hotel experience with Untravlled Paths. Dragos our tour guide was so friendly and took great care of us! In the evening he even sung a few songs for us as we all joined in with him after a few palenka's to drink! The tunnel trek was fun and worthwhile. We had fun participating in the snow activities...

Myself, my husband and our two friends stayed at the ice hotel on a recent holiday to Romania. We booked with Untraveled Paths who looked after us wonderfully and would totally recommend. We were taken to the cable car from our hotel in Brasov along with 11 others who were on our tour. The trip in the cable car was...

We just got back from Romania on an ice hotel experience with untraveled paths. We had the tunnel trek which was fun. We had dinner at the ice hotel which was a lovely meal. We had the Star Wars room. I didn't sleep very well at all but my husband slept just fine through the night. It was quite warm....
