Break out for the festive season

Stuck for ideas over the Xmas break? There are great packages with hotels over the seasonal period – where a room at some high class locales can be found for 100 Euro – feign a sickness, escape the family and treat the wife or husband, mistress or toy-boy to a luxurious experience at these top places:

At the Radisson Blu there are abundant brunches on Sundays – including traditional Xmas turkey, salmon steaks, roast beef in salt crust, lobsters, oysters and cozonac, plus Xmas dinners from the 24 to 26 December including pan-fried red snapper and roast beef with Yorkshire pudding - plus Christmas pudding. New Year’s Eve fun has packages which include a lavish dinner or a disco-themed party with MC Vasile Calofir, Perpetuum Band and ex-Eurovision contender Luminita Anghel.

Residence Hotels have a wide range of delightful menus for meat-eaters and vegetarians throughout the festive season and on New Year’s Eve a French-style menu with snail vol-au-vents, salmon mousse and steak with foie gras, washed down with Moet & Chandon and Cramele Rottenberg Merlot – plus a choir, DJ and fireworks.
