Stayed recently as part of a conference. We arrived very late-about 2 in the morning after long journey but were met with a most friendly welcome. Was a bit of a pain not having an elevator but the receptionist positively ran up the stairs with our bags. He was clearly proud of the hotel and gave us alittle bit of... More

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.

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
