Apartment Luxor Busteni: Cheap accommodation Prahova Valley Romania

This year I was in Romania, Prahova Valley. We stayed in a holiday apartment in Busteni.
This apartment is in Busteni city, Prahova county.

The apartment is situated at the foot of the Caraiman Mountains, which provides plenty of opportunity for those who like to make excursions, as it's only 10 minutes walk to the heart of nature.

The apartment is located on the ground floor in a blockhouse. As you step into the hall, on the right side you find the kitchen, equipped with cupboard, fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, china, dishes, and glasses. Also on the right side you will find a bedroom with queen-size bed, wardrobe, night-table and TV. On the left side there is another hall from which you step into the bathroom containing wash basin, bathtub and toilet. The bathroom is equipped with toiletries. Also on the left side is the second bedroom with queen-size bed. In the center of the apartment is the living room which contains a studio coach, armchair, TV, and DVD player. The apartment has its own heating system. Free Wi-Fi is provided. There is parking in front of the house.
Price : 60 euro / night for 6 people.

Busteni it's one of the most popular tourist centers in Romania. The resort has a reputation for some extreme skiing as well as the usual cruising slopes. In summertime the tourists come here for the climbing tracks.

We visited Sinaia, Busteni, Predeal, Bran, Brasov, Sibiu, Sighisoara.
We liked Busteni because it is the foot of Caraiman Massif in the Bucegi Mountains. It's one of the most spectaculars resorts as it is surrounded by amazing peaks.

The resorts along the mountain chain which cross Romania from north to south, offer their guests excellent facilities for recreation in summer and winter. During the winter months, Busteni station offers the possibility to practice skiing and sledding. Here there are ski paths with different difficulty levels.
Busteni makes a great starting point for trips into the mountains around which are numerous natural phenomenas: "Babele" - a wind-chiseled slope in the Bucegi Massif; the "Shpynx" - the result of the combined action of wind, rain and snow; gorges, caves, etc.
The area is not only rich in natural and geographical phenomenas, but also in churches, monuments, museums and castles.

The owners were very friendly and helped us with more information.

No matter where you'd like to stay, on Prahova Valley, which is the name of the entire region (including Sinaia, Predeal, Azuga, Brasov) you'll always find a place to stay. Arriving by train to either of the destinations, the locals will literally jump on you with offers in pensions or at the local's home. Don't worry, they're not dangerous, they just earn some extra money by hosting travellers. But you can find easily hotels, because most of Romanians stay in Guesthouses, not in hotels! The one that we stayed in was absolutely fantastic. The lady was friendly and never interfered with us and it was very centrally located. We paid 100 lei per double room.
