Spent 1 night at the Escala. Comfortable, family-run, old world B&B, classic warmth. Easy 15 minute walk to the city centre and its cathedrals and main boulevard. On-street parking in a quiet neighbourhood. Wifi, tasty breakfast. Very helpful knowledgeable owners.

My visit to the Villa Escala contained absolutely no complaints or even minor grumbles about the accommodations. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The hosts were as helpful as could be with site seeing directions, regional advice, and even went so far as to help my friend with flight reservation problems. The location is (as other reviewers have noted)... More

We stayed for one night only but were nevertheless made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts who gave us lots of good advice about Cluj. The breakfast was fantastic and the room spotless.

Having traveled for 3 days by train from London to Munich to Budapest to Cluj we were ready for a couple of relaxing days before travelling through Romania for 4 weeks. We were not disappointed.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Villa Escala and we were very impressed with the overall experience. Villa is relatively close to the centre of the city (10 -15 mins walk), in a very calm and quite area. The surroundings will make you forget you're in a crowdy city. The hosts are wonderfull, they were very friendly, making... More

Adrian and his family provided everything a guest could want during my brief stay. Always with a smile! Lovely small hotel within a short walk of city centre. Highly recommended as the best place to stay in Clij-Napoca. (Don't expect a swimming pool to do laps in though).

We arrived in this charming little town during a very wet week. The owner, Adrian, and his family were very welcoming and accommodating. I had asked for a non smoking quiet room and we were provided just that. It was very private and we slept so very well, it was wonderful. They are great with suggestions for what to do... More

Hotel Villa Escala is a cosy little hotel. The atmosphere is almost like being at home. Rooms are spacious and quiet. Fresh fruits in the room as a courtesy of the house.
