BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Strada Mihail Kogălniceanu, Sinaia, Romania

The Space

This is a three bedroom apartament located in a beautiful mountainous region, at the foothills of the Bucegi Mountains , about 120km from Bucharest and 44km from Brasov, in the Prahova Valley, Sinaia is one of the oldest and most famous mountain resorts, often referred to as "The Pearl of the Carpathians". Located at an altitude of 767 m and 860 m, Sinaia boasts ski slopes at an altitude of 2,000 m, on the plateau of the Bucegi mountains.
History
Sinaia takes its name from the 17th-century monastery built here by a Romanian nobleman after undertaking a pilgrimage to Mount Sinai, Egypt.

Sinaia was first mentioned in documents, as a mountain resort, in 1869, when the locals saw the construction of the town’s first hotel. The beautiful region drew the attention of the Hohenzollern Royal House (Carol I - King of Romania) who built Peles Castle, starting 1873. It became the summer royal residence. Prior to World War II and the abdication of the royal family, Sinaia was a summer retreat for Romania's aristocracy. A walk up the mountainside reveals many grand summer homes from this period.
Climate
Sinaia has a sub-Alpine climate. The summers are bracing, and, in the first part of the season, very rainy. Winters are relatively mild, with heavy snow. Average annual rainfall is 900 mm. The maximum registered rainfall was in June (173 mm). The minimum rainfall and nebulosity was recorded in September (55 mm) and February (40mm). The snow layer installs itself homogeneously starting usually from November and it melts in a period of time from March-April, sometimes at the beginning of May. The thickness of the snow layer varies between 20 centimeters and 3 meters in higher elevations. The average temperature in summer is 15 degrees C, in winter -4 degrees C, while the annual average temperature is 7 degrees.
Natural cure factors
Sinaia has a tonic and stimulating bio-climate that is beneficial for the human body, with very clean air that is rich in oxygen, ultraviolet radiations and negative ionization. There are also some mineral springs in Cainelui Valley that have sulphur-ferric mineral water and contain other soluble minerals.

  • Very convenient location for my latest trip to New York. Laura was very responsive and attentative to my questions and inquiries. It was walkable to Lombardis and other great restaurants. The subway is only a block or two away as well. The apartment accomodated my party well and I would totally book with Laura again.

  • L accueil et l attention que Laura apporte a ses hotes est impeccable : on la joint tres rapidement et facilement par mail . L appartement est vetuste, mais pas cher car situe dans Manhattan. Tres fonctionnel, il permet d acceder en moins d un quart d heure au coeur de Manhattan. Si nous avons regretté le manque de vaisselle pour 5 ( il n y a que 5 assiettes, 5 verres, 3 bols), en revanche nous avons apprécié la qualité du linge fourni : la douceur des draps, l épaisseur des serviettes. Nous avons vraiment apprécié la courtoisie et la réactivitébde Laura : informée d un problème que nous avons eu avec le radiateur de la chambre, n ayant pu intervenir pour réparer la panne, Laura a propose de nous rembourser 100 dollars. Mais nous n avons pas eu froid grâce au chauffage d appoint que Laura avait laissé. Très serviable, Laura a proposé de nous réserver un taxi pour rejoindre l aéroport.
    L appartement est vétuste mais c est un pied à terre plus que correct pour découvrir New York et nous avons apprécié la serviabilite de Laura.

  • l'appartameto di laura è piuttosto piccolo, e purtroppo è reso ancora piu' piccolo da tutte le sue cose che occupano quel poco di spazio utile per mettere la roba. L'ubicazione è ok, vicino al centro e alla fermata della metro a circa 500 metri. Il consiglio che sento di dare è quello di liberare e lasciare un po' di spazio in piu a gli ospiti. altro consiglio è quello di cambiare la serratura difettosa della porta di ingresso per evitare di stare a perdere tempo con la chiave che non apre! Cucinare è piuttosto difficoltoso vista la cucina molto piccola. Per il resto la casa è calda accogliente e con internet. Grazie Laura

  • Elegimos este apartamento por la ubicación, que era perfecta para nosotros en Little Italy, cerca del Brooklyn bridge, Soho y Financial District. La estación de metro de Canal St está a 1 minuto. Las fotografías reflejan cómo es el apartamento, amplio y las camas muy cómodas. Todo correcto y acorde al precio (buena relación calidad-precio para 4 personas), con dos habitaciones separadas. Aunque hay que atravesar una de ellas desde la otra habitación para acceder al aseo. El wifi era rápido y funcionaba muy bien. También el agua caliente, la ducha funcionaba sin problemas. El edificio es muy viejo y la entrada y escalera están algo sucias descuidadas pero eso no nos importó. El único problema que tuvimos fue que el último día se estropeó la calefacción. La dueña nos dijo que alguna vez pasaba por lo viejo que es el edificio. Laura fue una anfitriona muy amable y correcta. Nos atendió en todo momento. El día de la salida pudimos dejar las maletas hasta la hora de ir al aeropuerto e incluso nos ayudó a reservar telefónicamente un taxi grande para ir al aeropuerto, ya que éramos 4 personas con mucho equipaje.

  • Great place close to all the trains and very walkable too. You can sit in the window and watch all the madness on Mulberry St. The kitchen is great and very big for New York. Water pressure in the bathroom was terrific and the bedroom was very dark and quiet great for sleeping in if you choose. We were two but four people could totally stay here.
