Buildt by one of the most famous architects of its time, Karel Liman, the house has kept its spirit. The rooms are different - reserve upfront to get a nice one, and do not be amazed to have a TV crew sitting besides you to make a documentary. If you catch the receptionist off hours, you might get a tour....

I booked a room online and no one called to confirm the reservation. And every time I tried to call the phone was either turned off or after the first ring they declined the call and never called me back.

Excellent building! An old villa charged with tones of atmosphere, stained glass and a garden with nice views. Karmen, the director, is the soul of this place and made us feel like home from the very first moment. We look forward to come again one day. We'd like to thank her and the stuf for making us feel so good!...

Very nice and rustic place in Sinaia, in a quiet and wonderful area. The owners treats you like a real king, explaining the history of the building and offering you the insights of the area! The breafast is delicious, it´s a must to try the "hawaian toast" ;) Definitely a place to come back for relaxing!

The house had amazing stained glass, antiques and architecture that made the stay very nice. Some of the rooms looked a little worn but I guess that is part of the charm. The breakfast was good but took awhile to prepare.

I've been with a group in May in Sinaia and we reserved a few rooms in Vila Retezat. The Villa looks splendid either from outside or inside. The villa was built by Karel Liman the architect which contributed to the building of Peles Castle. That's why is an artwork with a lot of wood sculpture, stained glass, painted ceilings etc....

All praise given to this house (architecture, charm, etc.) is justified. The place is very impressive and staying there is a very different, and special, experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful, so staying there is highly recommended

The host was very kind and helpful. She explained to us a lot about Sinaia and the quickest routes to the castle and the city center. The rooms were warm and clean. We were allowed to take pictures of the painted ceiling while she was introducing us with the history of vila Retezat.

Our visit began from checking at Vila Retezat.Administrator was very kind and helpful with advice how to get to mountains and what to see around the city. We had just one day to see everything and we were lucky to be in time for the last telecabina (5 minutes by walk...
