We found it a very welcoming hotel with lovely staff in the reception bar and restaurant. The room was comfortable and clean and with good facilities. Breakfast which was included in the price was very disappointing as it seemed most things were put out the night before and were a bit stale. The biggest problem was smoking in the public... More

I was travelling by car from Bucharest back home to Prague. This trip is quite long and I needed to stay overnight in Arad. Best Western is ideally located near to city center, and it has quite good, accessible parking. Checking was pleasant, and rooms are comfortable. I enjoyed dinner in hotel restaurant and breakfast was very good too. WiFi... More

Whilst very well located in the center of Arad, only a few meter from the main Piazza and shopping area, the hotel itself was very disappointing. It appears to be a converted old communist hotel, surrounded by large and high apartment blocks. Views from any of the hotels windows is restricted to grey and dingy walls of the apartment blocks....

Located on the heart of Arad City, near Hungarian border, Best Western Central Hotel, is the most beautiful and warm location in Arad. Totally refurbished, great cuisine and nice terrace are only few motives to stay there. The staff and management are very friendly.

No theme for the hotels worldwide....as best western hotels are the most different then any other hotel chain....here you get small rooms with old tv's and a heater that makes a lot of noise....small bath but clean and very well equipped....minibar very poor but you get guarded parking...breakfast was decent and the coffee was super....the price seemed a little over...

Minus: - the first night was very cold, as the heating system did not work throughout the hotel. We complained about this in the morning, and by noon we've been called back by the hotel, and after tons of apologies, as it seemed they would not be able to fix the problem but after a few days, we were informed...

Very polite and helpful staff, we had a really good experience with the cleaning ladies, the security guard, the receptionists and the restaurant workers. Breakfast was tasty. Parking is safe with guard. Location of the elavator is strange a little as you always have to use some stairs between the elevator and the corridors, that can be uncomfortable with heavy... More

A lot of people did not know that this Hotel was in fact the hotel reserved for Ceausescu family for vacation in Arad . The hotel is refurbished to a point of excellence but with the flavor of his glorious past. I was looking for a good quality ,a safe parking and a garden up to my expectations. Price is... More

We stayed at this hotel while transiting towards bucharest. Outstanding cleanliness of both the room and the hotel public spaces recommends this hotel. The reservation staff adapts very well to unusual customer requirements. The hotel staff politeness towards customer impressive. One proposed improvement is to have a separate nosmoking section on the restaurant terrace despite the fact 90% of romanian... More

I decided to book a room at the Best Western Central as well-known hotel chain should be ensured that four-star really means 4*, Exterior cube tower is kind ofothe reminiscent of the socialist times, but shady garden with a restaurant is a promising pleasant refuge. I was pleasantly surprised by nice interior. The corridors and rooms have been decorated in... More
