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. If you try to use the public transport, you´ll see that the hotel is very good located and you can reach trainstation or the Parc Nicolae Romanescu easylie by bus. 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.

Centrally located in walking distance to the city center. Front fascade of an old building; back building is modern, rooms are to today's standards or above, i.e. the futuristic shower cabin ;) Private parking not available.

After many unpleasant experiences in Craiova I found myself a decent place to stay. Downtown, nice building, nice decorations, clean and pretty quiet. The room I stayed in (202) was not so big, but it was clean and comfortable. Although it was a hot summer day when I got there (and the room is on the penthouse), it was pretty... More
