“A very good hotel choice in Oradea ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Think of Avalon as the best choice if you want to be close to the heart of the city. The rooms are rather small but nicely decorated and clean. The parking is in front of the building . We arrived in the evening around 20.00 and even though the owner was not there a very nice lady from the bar nextdoor offered us all the necessary info and the door key. We would go back again

Although we stayed just one night, arrived after check-in was closed and left before check-out closed, the staff was extremely helpful and found a really nice, tastefully decorated room. Quiet, good location, awesome experience!

It's placed right in the city center, very conveniently if you plan to visit the city. Beautifully decorated room, quiet, especially because of the hotel's calm atmosphere. No permanent reception, runned by owner, a very nice person, present there every morning and some evenings. Perfect clean rooom/bathroom, white immaculate linnen. Room rather small but with great design and space cleverly managed. Good (stand alone) air condition and minifridge, helped us be comfortable in a overheated weather (above 36 deg.)

Very pleased with the choice, we reccommend!

Very convenient location close to the city centre. Immaculately clean, comfortable and very nicely decorated room. Dacian who runs the place is a most welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly host with perfect English. Having e-mailed me train information prior to my visit, he then came to pick me up from the train station at night and was patiently waiting for me although my train arrived 20 minutes late. It was my first visit to Romania, I was going to meet up with a Romanian friend, but as a result of last minute changes found myself a little bit apprehensive on my own in unknown territory. Damian gave me a guide book to look at, a map to take with me and a lot of excellent tips and recommendations and as a result I spent two most enjoyable days exploring the city on foot. I highly recommend Avalon Rooms and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: my room was fine, but can't remember the number ...

(PROs) Great location, near the city center, very easy to reach. The room had lcd tv, air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi, amazing mattresses (we slept so well). Although the room was quite small, it was very light, clean and cozy. The furnishing and decor are lovely :). The room faced the interior yard, so it was quiet enough, although the hotel is located on a busy street. Budget-friendly.
(CON) In the early morning we could hear the trams, so we had to close the window.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the yard, because even in a room like this you can hear the tram starting 5-6...

Thank you for taking the time to share your impressions!

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and liked the room.

You took advantage of our very good placement, still, this position comes with certain disadvantages. Being close to a main street at 500m from center (Piata Unirii-Primarie), draws in a certain level of sound discomfort. Even if the street is quiet during the night, maybe not everyone could sleep with open windows, of course this may be different, as we are not the same. Because of our high quality air condition units and the efficient double glasses soundproof windows, sleeping with closed windows is the best option, especially in summertime.

Thank you!

p.s.:
Nice photo’s :)!

We booked a double room at Avalon at the end of February for our stay at the end of May and the Avalon Staff just forgot our reservation. At first they even denied receiving it which I find very offending for a guest interested in a stay. After driving for hours to get to Oradea we found the Hotel doors closed, the manager didn't even have the common sense to come and talk to us personally but instead sent us to another hotel at the other end of the city. After demanding he solved the problem he caused himself. Really unfriendly, we cannot rate the rooms or other service areas, but my advice: if you choose to travel to oradea pick a decent stay (we chose Double tree by hilton-it's excellent at very good rates) or double or better triple check your reservation at avalon. It will save you lots of trouble!!

Dear Tourist,


We are very sorry, we couldn’t accommodate you, without a valid booking.

In February, upon a request of yours, we confirmed the availability and the rates for a room, but denied your booking because of your request for inner private parking and breakfast from 07:00 am (services, which unfortunately we can not provide), a negation which we communicated to you and required a response.
Nothing happened from then, no email, no answer on our several phone calls. Consequently, your “booking” remained just a request
It is how, it’s understandable, that we “couldn’t find” your booking; it is why we did not expect any check-in for that day (our location is never “closed” for tourists);
Because there was no registered booking on your name, we searched for the email exchange which, you kept insisting that it was launched on April. This misinformation had confused us a lot.
Finally, attempting to stop the dispute, we proposed you alternative accommodation; it was not liability, but common sense and courteousness…sorry that you did not understood that!

We pity, however, the way you decided to handle this; your rush to launch a “revenge” on us, creating yourself a Tripadvisor account exactly in the day of the incident, your advert to other hotel, rises strong, legitimate questions, about your fair intent and disqualifies your approach…

Avalon Rooms is well located only a few minutes walk from the centre of Oradea. The rooms are small but clean. The manager is very helpful. Breakfasts are an optional extra, which are taken at a nearby restaurant. The accommodation is very good value for money.

Room Tip: Room number 1 is on the road frontage and you may have a problem with the noise of passing trams.
