High up in the Carpathians and yet easily accessible from the city of Brasov, Poiana Brasov is home to 22km of downhill ski slopes and numerous hiking routes. If you’re craving more adrenaline, you can also go ice skating and tobogganing. From Dracula-inspired lodgings to contemporary hotels reflecting the feel of the surrounding fir trees, we know that choosing where to relax after a long day outside can be a difficult task. Here are Culture Trip’s top picks.

Teleferic Grand Hotel

The twinkling lights and snow-dusted trees are a warm welcome at this 127-room hotel, located on the edge of the Poiana Brasov resort. Accommodation ranges from single rooms to deluxe apartments with high ceilings, exposed beams, glass walls and wood-clad bathrooms. Fuel up in one of the six on-site restaurants, and make the difficult choice between fine-dining, an après-ski bar or a standalone traditional Romanian hut.

    With its red towers, dramatic stone staircase and dark timber beams, the House of Dracula has a Gothic feel to match its spooky-sounding name. But don’t be fooled, it’s a warm welcome that awaits – staff are cheery, the food is good and rooms are comfortable. Some have baths and log burners, others have printed armchairs and sofas. Our tip? Recharge with a spa treatment – they range from aromatic facials to sea salt scrubs and full-body massages.
