With winter already in full swing and the holidays knocking on the doors, tourists are booking up rooms in Romania’s Prahova Valley for this Christmas, with almost 70 percent of the accommodation already reserved. Sinaia, Busteni and Azuga will probably see increasing reservations as the holidays approach. Compared to previous years, hotel operators are offering tourists more packages that include two to seven nights’ accommodation and various facilities with different prices.
For example, a two star hotel in Sinaia offers packages of four nights at prices between RON 450 and RON 1,100 per room. The price includes four nights’ accommodation, vouchers for the restaurant, meeting Santa (for children), parking and free internet, according to Agerpres newswire.
In the same resort, a three-star hotel is offering packages at prices between RON 550 and RON 1,800 including two or three nights accommodation, breakfast, Christmas dinner, access to sauna, swimming pool and jacuzzi.
Also a three-daisy villa (a local rating for villas and boarding houses) is offering packages that range from two to seven nights’ accommodation at rates between RON 280 and RON 900, while a three-star guesthouse is charging RON 225 per night in a double honeymoon room for at least two nights plus an extra charge of RON 50 per person for Christmas dinner.
Another alternative is Cornu, a little further south, near Campina, where a four-star villa has prices of EUR 69 (a little over RON 300 ) per person per night, valid for minimum stay of two nights. The price includes breakfast, dinner access to indoor pool, sauna, gym, a spa package and campfire.
