Pros: The sights No phone signal
Cons: The access road
Pros: Great location in the middle of the wood with easy access to nice hiking trails. Very good diner and breakfast with the possibility to bring your own.
Pros: Great location on a top of a hill. Very good breakfast and dinner. Close to some great mountain trails and a couple of very cool caves. Very enjoyable car ride near the Scărișoara Cave.
Cons: It has nothing to do with the accomodation, but once you get off the paved road for the last 2,5 km before the destination, the road is rough with many holes, especially after a rain. Drive carefully! Furthermore, the phone reception is bad.
Pros: If you are asked if you want to have dinner in the guesthouse: My advice is a clear YES. The dinner was really the highlight of our stay. It is not like a restaurant with a menu to chose from. You eat what she serves - Home-cooked Romanian food, prepared freshly in the afternoon. Delicious, something of the best I ate in Romania. All guests sit on a long table and enjoy a three course dinner. Price is more than fair.
Pros: We recommend eating at the property, the host is an excellent cook.
Pros: The hosts are very friendly and provide valuable information regarding things to do/places to see. The room was spatious for 3 persons and everything was clean. There is a big garden where we could park our car without any issues. The river Aries flows through the garden. The hosts can upon request - one day in advance cook for you. We tasted some doughnuts offered as gifts to us which were delicious.
Cons: There is nothing major not to like. For people on Holliday I would clearly recommend this guesthouse. Still, for some who has to do some work with internet connection/ wifi- please be advised that it has room for improvement - or this was my particular case.
Pros: the host was super friendly. here you can eat the perfect sunny side up egg for breakfast. don't miss it!
Pros: Everything: the room, the owners, the traditional food (made by Ms Aurica), the yard, the playground, the campfire.
Pros: The environment was amazing and a lot of sights are close to the apartman. The room was really clean and it came with good equipments. It is a very nice place to have some rest.
Pros: The hosts are wonderful, sweet and warm. We had the breakfast and the dinner there, we eat so good and lot of. The room is big and the bed is comfortable. I recommend

Pros: Everything was just perfect! A true jewel!
Cons: Nothing I can think of...
Pros: We loved our stay a lot, the house is spacious, the living room is very well decorated, full equipped kitchen for those who want to cook. Large room and bathroom, comfy beds, the carpets from the bedroom could be changed, they don't match very well and they are a bit wasted.
Pros: Excelent, recomand cu drag pensiunea Arnica Montana. D-na Alina te face sa te simt acasa si am primit informatii despre obiectivele turistice dinner zona. Excellent weekend spent at Arnica Montana. Perfect view form the balcony; great facilities, easy and short walk to the tourist attractions. Great price and quality ballance.

Cons: The way of serving the meals. The person serving the meals should follow the advices of the guests.
Pros: There was kitchen and living room available for us.
Cons: We were alone in the building so we understand they did not turn the central heating on, but we were really cold. The parking was behind the gate really close to the road but the gate was not locked overnight. There were stray dogs on the garden (as there were holes in the fence) and bothered us when we tried to pack and leave and nobody cared.
Pros: Very kind hostess. She cooks, what you wish. Dinner was very good. Guesthouse is near two interesting churches.
Pros: Good location and very kind hosts, helped us whenever we needed. They've helped us with the barbecue, they gave us information about nearby attractions. Rooms were small, but clean and comfy, although the bathroom had a small shower, not quite good for tall people, it was clean. Overall, the quality-price ratio is very good, it's definitely a place where we'll stay if we end up going in another vacation in Gârda de Sus.
Pros: Location of the accommodation is very good as it is close to all the caves around. Also, although the house is very close to the road, there was very little noise which was good! The freshness of the air was really nice and clean! Another positive note was the breakfast: although small in variety, what the female host gave us, it was good and fresh. The lady even said that the butter and cheese were made by them, and the taste attested to it. In case you want dinner, you need to call in advance. Unfortunately, we didn't know this, but the landlady directed us to another pension which also had restaurant, so we were able to dine there.
Cons: We had 3 rooms and were actually the only guests, and unfortunately, the heater and warm water weren't really working in 2 rooms, which considering the fact that it was middle October, it was a little bit too cold. Another minus is the fact that although there is a kitchen, you cannot cook in it. We stayed only 1 night but in case for more nights and in case you bring children, it might be an inconvenient.
Pros: Close to the road taking one to Scarisiora and Vartop Caves. Clean house with meals on request.
Cons: It would have been nice if our hosts could offer some advice on exploring the park.
Pros: Good location with parking and a comfortable room!
Cons: The shared bathroom was at the other end of the corridor from the room.
