This hotel is in a beautiful old building and in the process of being renovated. Although the room was small, there was plenty of storage space and it overlooked one of the main sights in the city. The staff went out of their way to accommodate any request, were a great source of local information and their command of the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights a couple of weeks ago. The hotel appeared to spend all of its money on the lobby. The rooms were shabby, dusty, and sorely in need of an update. Air conditioning did not work and the room was sweltering. Could not open the movies because of bugs. Breakfast ran out early and they were very... More

Stayed here for the first 2 nights of a tour of Romania. Basic, as expected, shower and toilet did not work very well and were very old, heating in room was good though. Beds were not the most comfortable. Breakfast was sufficient. Wouldn't choose to stay again myself however.

Truth is, staff is really friendly and nice too. But really, if it's more than just the perfect location that you're looking for – it's nothing to write home about. Stayed at the Capitol for 2 nights with my brother. Room was ready for us when we got there, check-in was fast, reception clerk was friendly and informative. So was... More

Forget about the good location - find yourself a good, clean, non-moldy hotel. Other than location it was disapointing in all aspects. The room smelled like mold, had broken furniture, cheap matresses and the wallpaper was torn from the wall. Breakfast was terrible.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during a group travel tour in Romania. It seems that the hotel has not been given any renovation for decades. Our room had a bath-tub where some part of the tub-walls had broken off, I could look into the hotel construction. There was old-fashioned TL lighting in the bath-room, and the blankets... More
