I had never been to Craiova before and just picked the hotel off the internet because 'it looked alright'. I really didn't know what to expect - but expectations were exceeded! We arrived late after a long and tiring train journey and were made to feel extremely welcome. The receptionist was friendly, informative, and as a bonus, spoke excellent English.... More

The hotel Royal Craiova is easy to reach by car and you can park just in front of it. The rooms are comfortable but the overall decoration of the hotel and of the rooms is quiet kitch which is a pity. The restaurant is rather good. All in all, good hotel for a stop in Craiova.

Friendly reception, nice modern furnished rooms, with all facillities in it for a short stay.

There are also some very nice restaurants in the same neighbourhood. The first night of... More

I spent 11 days in the Royal hotel. Why "Royal"? Because long ago it was King Carol I's residence in Craiova. The building still retains many of its original features, including the stucco decorations of the facade and its marble stairs and floors. It still can boast its clean, spacious room. Today's travellers will certainly be satisfied with the breakfast... More

I admit that the only other Craiova hotel I have ever stayed in was the late and unlamented Hotel Jiul, but I suspect that even so the Royal is the best hotel in Dolj County. The rooms are spacious and well-maintained, and the whole hotel retains the gracious mid-nineteenth-century proportions with which it was built. The breakfast is excellent (wonderful... More

This is easily the best hotel in Craiova. Ok, not saying a lot you think, but still, the rooms are great, the cost is in line with the quality and the location is ideal. Parking is not a problem either.
