We were 4 people in our group and we absolutely loved it there. we had amazing views from our bedrooms, but we spent most of our time out on the terrace, enjoying great food, drink and warm and friendly service. We even had a bonfire one night. Definitely recommend! Can't wait to go back there again! Multumim :)

Cetatea Carului is an excellent location, where you can relax and enjoy a piece of heaven on earth (represented by the incredible terrace/room view), you can eat great food and spend some quality time (why not, with the hospitable staff).

From the first moment we've been there we were amazed by the view, the whole valley looks superb. The host and the whole staff were very nice to us. The food is great so I recommend you stay there and eat. Breakfast was included and was more than enough for 2 people with different diary products, jam and some really... More

Great place with a great view over the Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains. Friendly staff, clean rooms with balcony, good wi-fi connection, games room, traditional food. Overall, the perfect place for a runaway, week-end with friends or team-building.

Both times were just great; you could just sit there on the terrace for hours and enjoy the sensational view. On both occassions we loved the service, the friendliness of... More

Been here in July with my wife. The hotel is nice, with large rooms. We had a room on the back of hotel, a little bit noisy because of the restaurant terrace. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was booked with breakfast and dinner included. The food at breakfast was great including eggs, local cheese, 2-3 meat choices,... More

Why not stay in a quiet place with a great view while visiting the city of Bran, Romania and its castle (Dracula's Castle)? Cetatea Carului guest house/hotel and the view from my room, were relaxing.

I love everything about this place. The view is incredible, you are surrounded by two impressive mountains, Piatra Craiului and Bucegi mountains. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the food is just great. Every time I pass through that beautiful area I stop for a good meal.
