Traveling to Romania is as easy as traveling to any other European destination. Romania offers a rich tapestry of tourist attractions, which are unique in Europe.
In the last few years, the number of places offering accommodation, as well as the number of the rooms has increased and diversified a lot. Today, they satisfy the most different demands, ranging from five-star hotels to rural guesthouses, from mountain chalets to camping spots and inns, including special facilities (such as Savarsin and Arcus castles, Mogosoaia palace, or even the peasant fortress in Rasnov). In these terms, all demands can be handled. Romanian accommodation has been divided into six categories to satisfy visitors’ needs: hotels (a list of all the hotels in Romania, pictures, services and contact info is attached to this document); inns and camping spots; rural guesthouses; chalets and hostels; other type of accommodation (non-hotel); and floating hotels.
In case Romania is not your main travel destination in Europe, even a two or three-day ad-on is worthwhile. Although some remote areas in Romania only basic tourist facilities, those visiting the country will always encounter friendly people, wonderful sights and affordable prices.
