4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

It's located in the downtown area.
A pleasant, friendly staff, good service.
Good value for price.
The rooms are very well furnished, clean.
Wirless Internet is free.
They also have smokers's rooms .
Well-equipped conference rooms with facilities related.
One small problem: the restaurant.
Breakfast very good, diverse, well presented.
For lunch and dinner, I recommend you other locations.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I stayed at hotel Intercontinental Forum in Jan 2013. The hotel is very well located around 5-10 min walk from the Main Square (Piata Mare). A parking is available in front of the hotel which is good if you come by car. We have't paid anything for the parking.
The staff of the hotel is very nice. The receptionist had our reservation prepared and we only need around 2 min to check in.
The room is ok ... quite big with a small safe, LCD, minibar and a desk.The bed was quite comfortable. There are two negative things that i would mention:
1. You don't have a closet. Is an open space where you can put your clothes.
2. Near the bed, on the bathroom side there was a little bit of mud. Not very disturbing but it was there.
The bathroom is big and is like a glass box in room. I've seen before this type of bathrooms and i was travelling with my husband so was not an issue for us. It could be if you share room with a colleague.
I can't say much about breakfast since we only eat 2 days but we have what we requested. Ppl in the restaurant are also nice.
Overall the hotel is good. We got a good price for our 3 nights using a coupon. I would stay here again and I would definitely recommend the hotel.

Dear Madalina,

Thank you so much for your feedback. We are very happy that you chose our hotel in Sibiu. We really appreciate that you took the time to write a few words about us! We are sorry for your inconveniences in regards to the design of the closet; we could have brought you an extra hanger. As for your second objection, we have informed our housekeeping supervisor and it was a most useful information.

Kind regards,

This is an ok option if you are staying in Sibiu--a short walk to the sights, Clearly the product of a recent renovation, lots of the hotel is relatively attractive but with many really poor and inexplicable decisions. The bathrooms are "designed", and really appealing, with glass countertops and big glass bowls for sinks; it's lucky they are attractive because they are right in the middle of the room. but in addition to being totally lacking in privacy, they are highly impractical, with hardly any counter space at all. "Closets" are more a kind of a niche, appealing but very, very small. There are minifridges and small safes in the rooms, and free bottled water, and our suite had a hot water kettle and tea and instant coffee. Bathroom stalls were small but ok, with a fogged glass partition door--flusher mechanism was broken on one. Oddest of all were the "bathtubs"--a glass partition door opens onto a funny half-sized tub completely surrounded by walls except for door...why they wouldn't go with an ordinary shower stall is beyond me.

Breakfast would sustain life but was not something to look forward to; they did have a pretty good array of different kinds of eggs and some cold cuts; coffee was a disappointment, they had a Saeco machine dispensing instant coffee and cappuchino and hot chocolate, and hot water with a decent selection of tea.

Wellness area was rather nice, with a hot tub, a dry sauna, nice resting areas, and attractive massage rooms; massages were fine.

All in all a decent place to stay in lovely Sibiu, but it could have been so much nicer.

Me and my wife after a 30 something years of not seeing it spent, in November, a city break holiday in Sibiu.
We decided for Continental Forum as somewhere in my memories I knew it has a great location, in an old 1918- biulding.
Geting there, I was not disapointed, as I found a new renovated hotel with good staff and great service
We have had a suite with a magnificent wiew and very starnge bathroom! Very courios design made ask myself if the designer used what he have deigned.so people, be awarw at the bathtube and mirrors!
All in wall breakfast was great and restaurant with good cuisine!
A special mention for the spa in the hotel- a great puls for the money!
And the city...! Wow what a gem inthat valley like a wonderland at lastvfrontier of Europe.

Last November I have spent with my wife a city break in Sibiu, after 35 years last time heve been there. For thouse 4 nights I have chosen Continental Forum in Sibiu. a hotel who was on my mind, but lost in the back, back of my memories. The suprise was greater when I found a refurbished new -old one with professional staff and welcome atmosphere. We have had a suite- a huge one- well furbished but with a funny and strange design of the bath and the things in side. I think that the architect who have done the interior design was a men and not a pesond used to have a partner-women- in this space. So please, people, be aware of the strage mirrors and the tube access in this kind of bathroom. Other wise a great suite and with a great wiew, the city giving you the whole his splendor fron the top flor where was located-the suite.
Sibiu a realy Romanian gem, deserve the nikname of the cultural capital of europe- that lost and faraway part of last frontier of europe, located in a fairylike region, and full of nice locals, allways ready to help and be kind with strangers, even ones that speaks local language like us, but by far not beeing locals.
breakfast wonderful, the meditareanian-balkan restaurant good, the SPA a great acnivement of this hotel. Just to stay in this way.
Bottom line : great value for money and a pleasant time spent in such sorrounding-
inside and outside
thanks Sibiu

Room Tip: as upper level as possible and on the front wing

The hotel is ok, but the rooms are not properly cleaned, and the bathrooms have no privacy. The worse is the restaurant in the hotrl ground floor. The staff, the older males in particular, are seriously rude. At one point they shouted at our group for not ordering all at once. Disgraceful!
