“Nice hotel actually.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Visited Chisinau for one night and stayed at Jolly Alon. Got a suite bigger than an apartment. Bedroom, living room, library and two bathrooms and a sauna ! A bit kitsch from the old Soviet time I guess and the furniture and colors contributed to that feeling. But clean and nice room and free wifi and access to fitness. Staff very kind and not a bad hotel in this region, and the location was also close to city centre and various parks.

I spent 2 nights in Jolly Alon last year. The hotel can, in my view, be rated as resonable in all respects. Rooms are clean, but really nothing special. Breakfast is good but with very limited choice. The hotel staff is very nice, though. The most impressive thing is the aquarium in the lobby in which swim guge catfish and turtles.

This hotel is a good business hotel close to the centre of the city and the Park Stefan Cel Mare. The area is nice and it is good to have a park right outside the front door. However, the rooms are only average and the internet wifi in the room was very slow. Part of the hotel looks like it could do with some location. However for the location (central) and the price (under 100 euros) this is a good hotel for a business trip. However, if you are on holiday in Chisinau I expect you can find something that is better value ...

Ok let's qualify this first. There are literally no decent hotels in Chisinau, at least not if you measure "decent" by Western European standards. This is one of two (well known) 4-star hotels in the city, both of which are spotlessly clean but painfully dated. In a way though this wasn't a problem -you could say my room was "retro" in design! The most annoying thing was the pillows- so soft and floppy your head is basically touching the mattress. Everything else was fine, and the desk staff were nice, but the breakfast needs some serious work to be 4-star quality. The location is great and there is a decent bar and pool onsite too. You won't find anything else in Chisinau, so for now this hotel rules the roost!

I stayed in this hotel for over 2 weeks whilst on EC business. The hotel is of a reasonable standard. The rooms are dated and rather drab, but they have everything you need for your stay. The hotel staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Good things; lovely park across the road, nice outdoor cafe, the staff, the lobby and main areas. Things that could be improved; the WIFI as it was intermittent, the breakfast, although okay there could have been more variety and the comfort of the bed. All in all my stay was pleasant and I would return. Thank you Jolly Alon.

This hotel is in a good area and very convenient for parks, banks, shops and transport. It is not a UK 4 star standard and the bedrooms are a bit outdated but the public areas have been upgraded. Didn't visit the gym or pool but colleagues said they were very good and the pool nice and warm although only open in the mornings. The staff were very helpful, finding us cold milk for our tea, providing heaters in our bedrooms when the weather was unusually cold for the season, sorting out issues with another guest who was very noisy. The bathroom in my room had been refurbished and was extremely clean; the housekeeping staff were cheerful and friendly and reception sorted out an additional room for us at very short notice. Breakfast food very fresh and well presented. Overall much better than we expected from some of the moaning reviews on the site - some people need to remember where they are and give others a break.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are lighter and some have balconies

The hotel is right next to the city center, next to a park, in a quiet area. The rooms are big and clean, wifi is available everywhere in the hotel. The breakfast is good, but doesn't offer a big variety.
