The Villa Alice is a great choice in Suceava, ideal for exploring both the city and Bukovina. The villa is located on a secluded lane away from main road, ideal for an undisturbed night's sleep. My room had a large double bed and great en suite bathroom. The decoration was somewhat unusual french inspired but unoffensive. My only disappointment was the lack of breakfast - especially on the day excursion to the Painted Monasteries

Very nice, nobly furnished hotel.

We stayed for one night in the 5-star room. It is large, with a huge bed, a balcony overlooking a rose garden and a huge 4K Smart TV. The bathroom has a spacious rain shower and a Jacuzzi.
The room - like the rest of the hotel - is very stylishly decorated and clean. The bed was so comfortable that we thought about asking where to buy the pillows.
The staff were really friendly and helpful.

The hotel itself is centrally located but quiet on a side street. The city centre is only a few minutes walk away.

Villa Alice is highly recommended. We will be happy to come back.

The villa is very chic. Pleasant atmosphere, spacious and carefully arranged rooms. Delighted by the style of the furniture, and assorted bedding. The bathrooms are phenomenal. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi. And in the bedroom we had an extra wide TV. No problems regarding the internet connection.
Welcoming, responsive staff. The location is central with parking.

I had high expectations of this villa based on the reviews, photos and the presentation made by the owner, who compares it with 4 and 5 star hotels in larger cities.
Everything looks exactly as in the pictures, but that all. Although efforts are made by the staff to accommodate your stay, it cannot be hidden that the receptionist is also room service, and the chef is server and part-time cleaning lady as well.

The sheets were spotted and could have been cleaner, the towels had spots and one of them had a big hole most likely made by a cigarette, despite the big sign on the door that read No Smoking.
The "5 star" room had an overpowering, chemical smell coming from one of those power candles. 12 hours after removing it the smell was still unpleasantly present.
The shower was leaking water around the head instead if through.

On the way out I mentioned the above to the owner and he promised to look into all of these.
Surprisingly he did not offer anything to repair the discomfort.

Needless to say that this was one night stay. I will never return or recommend this villa to anybody.

Response from villaalice, Manager at Villa Alice
Responded Jun 25, 2013
We apologize for the discomfort of the anonymous tourist “DemandingTraveller7”. For the mistake with the towel, the housekeeper in question has put forward her resignation. Still, if this had been signalled at the time of discovery or occurrence, including the damage made or found at the shower, it would have been immediately remedied and the discomfort significantly reduced. The tourist “DemandingTraveller7” did not signal any problem or damage at the time when it was discovered or made, although he himself points out that he was in contact with the receptionist. The other things the reviewer refers to are completely false: the chef is not the same person as the housekeeper and the so called “chemical smell” is actually from a discreet and delicate natural oil, highly appreciated by all the other previous tourists. The fact that the tourist “DemandingTraveller7” expected a compensation (probably material), which he did not receive, makes us take into consideration the (logical) possibility that the tourist “DemandingTraveller7” could be the author of the damages and problems mentioned in order to receive the compensation or even stay for free. He did not receive it hence he denigrated under anonymity. We would like to assure the current and future guests of our hotel that we will do all we can so that everything will continue to be the best at Villa Alice, like all the other tourists have written so far. Still, if it were to happen to make a mistake with something we will try to immediately remedy it so that your stay will be a pleasant moment which will make you return anytime with pleasure.

I found this hotel while searching for "guided excursions" to the Monasteries. I contacted them about this (to know if the guide speaks french) and got such an answer : "Our guide speaks French at a basic level, which he learnt in school but he is better at English.[...] it costs 99 euro for the whole car (private tour in a private car). "

Well, ok, my english is not so bad, so, lets do it in english! What a mistake... but let's tell the whole day : the "guide" picked us up at the reception, not even presenting himself. He drove through the countryside, without saying a single word. So I tried asking about the economy of the place, people and customs and got very few answers before we all kept silent (so funny).

That way, we arrived at the first monastery where our wonderfull "guide" spoke no more than 2 minutes about the monument, before leaving us alone. He had better to do, like to flood other tourists with his advertising. On the second monastery, I decided to force him to stay on our side by asking a lot of questions. So we went in the Voronet Monastery, and in the second room painted with rich decorations, I asked "What interesting can you tell me about this room?". His answer : "This is part of the church." As if we, dummies, didn't notice that we were in the church... My wife said everything she thought about his "guided tour", but he didn't care much. He went again outside to give his visits cards around. No needs to tell you how were the visits of the 3 other monasteries or the road, you got the idea. He was so arrogant, so unfriendly... terrific!

When we arrived to the hotel, we asked to know about his name to prevent other people of doing the same mistake as we did. The reception employee had to admit that the "guide" is in fact the manager of the hotel.... And that he is not a guide at all!!! He knows even less than me about these monasteries!

We really consider that we were fooled by these people.

Then the breakfast was really a joke, serving by old woman (the mother of the «guide»?) who doesn’t speak a word of english.

To tell the truth, the room was fine, just like on the pictures, but we felt so bad of our day trip with the manager that we didn't enjoy it at all. I would recommend staying to some other places. Romanians people are in general very friendly, very nice and we were enjoying all days in Romania, except our short stay there at Villa Alice.

We were unpleasantly surprised when we read a review about Villa Alice which in fact … is not directly about Villa Alice. It is a long description of some email discussions made in a subjective and tendentious manner and then about a monastery trip full of false statements or omissions of the truth. The other tourists which wrote about the excellent accommodation amenities at Villa Alice were delighted of the monastery trips (those who went), and you can observe this from all the other reviews. Also with you, Mr Christophe, we followed the same programme and even more so, in order to please you, we asked a nun which is also a group guide to present the last monastery in French, your native tongue. Even though you were only two persons and not a group, she enjoyably made the monastery’s presentation in French for you but – bad luck – your Russian female friend did not know neither English nor French well – you probably also needed a Russian guide in order for you to be content. Finally, we would like to express our regret regarding TripAdvisor, who hosts such a review about Villa Alice which does not directly refer to Villa Alice and which is full of false statements and omissions of the truth – truth which can be anytime confirmed on the spot. We would like to assure our guests that we will make every effort which we can in order for you to be pleased both with the accommodation amenities and the staff’s activity, which will be helpful and friendly, like all the other guests have remarked so far.

Although centrally located and clean the staff are unfriendly, inflexible and sometimes rude. The rooms have no blackout drapes and are noisy and often smell of smoke. The rooms are all located on levels above ground and you must climb narrow staircases often without rails. There is no elevator on the property and with the rude staff often no help. We were there with my 93 year father who has to climb 4 flights. It was a day later they moved him. The breakfast is expensive and not worth the money .

Mrs. Weisberg, your and your family members’ behavior (except for your father’s) at Villa Alice was deplorable and disgraceful. The noisy rooms you mention are actually a result of the noise you and your family were making almost constantly, often keeping the doors of your rooms open and communicating by shouting from one room to the other. At the front desk you were always making noise, disturbing the other tourists and throwing ice cream on the floor. For this we should have called the police for disturbing the peace, but it seems we had way too much patience with you. The ambient recordings (video and audio) show that the staff was very polite and patient with you, even when you had requirements that you were changing immediately in a provocative way. Regarding the breakfast, you are lying incredibly. All 5 persons of your group went in to eat breakfast and you wanted to pay only for 4 breakfasts, on the grounds that one (adult) person eats less, thus eating without paying, for free! Because, in this case, we did not serve you with free food you wrote the way you did on TripAdvisor! At the last breakfast, after many unusual demands (and changes), being exasperated, we decided to let you pay whatever you wanted for breakfast and according to your conscience you paid 2.2 euros per person (!) which is way below the purchasing cost of the products which you ate. Mrs. Weisberg, does your dignity and honor resume to some free food and likely favors that the person who drove you around made, who ultimately urged you to write in such a manner? Is it a coincidence that your only reviews on TripAdvisor show up at the same time both for Villa Alice and this person?

Four or even five star accomodation for a very decent price is what you come across when taking a look at the Internet advertising "Villa Alice“ does. This, of course, raises certain expectations.
The rooms are furnished in elegant style, people working at the desk are friendly and helpful.
Nevertheless "Villa Alice“ cannot live up to its online promises at all. Walls in the whole building are extraordinarily thin, you can listen to your neighbours talking and have their tv-program shared with you.
The fitness spot is a dark room located in the basement, only very basically equipped, not very inviting for your work-out.
The "breakfast-buffet“ is served at an expense of 6 Euros, which is – considering the level of prices in the region – at the top margin. What you actually get for your money is much less than you’d expect as at the desk they display a list of things, which are included. A lot of them were missing on our first day.
We kindly asked whether it was possible to have some scrambled eggs and joghurt for the next day, which wasn’t a problem. Beyond expectations, however, was what came with it: an owner filming (!) the whole situation, just to make sure there is documentation of the rich breakfast buffet. The clip also contained him continously pointing at how neatly it all has been set and how rich the offer has been. This actually has been one of the most ridiculous and surrealistic scenes I have ever experienced in a hotel!
It seems as if the people running the hotel measure quality in the size of TV flat screens.

Your commentary is untrue and offensive. Villa Alice is centrally located, in a green and quiet area, there are no heavy trucks, ambulances or buses passing by. The exterior walls of the guesthouse are made of brick and have over 50 cm in width and the interior wall between the room in which you stayed and the neighbouring door has 36 cm in width, also made of brick. The door of the room is from solid wood and has a rubber sealing. Hence, the normal hotel sound isolation requirements are assured. Regarding the breakfast everything which is written on the list at the front desk fully corresponds to what is present on the buffet table in the breakfast room and the price of 25 lei is actually below the price of breakfast at the hotel "in the area" where it costs 35 lei. The fitness (and sauna) room together have about 40 square metres and 5 multifunctional workout devices and exist (even though we only have 10 rooms) unlike other bigger hotels in the region you refer to which do not have fitness or sauna at all. The positive feedback from our guests does not come from the size of the TV, like you have insinuated (offending the majority of those have rated us - 52 reviews "excellent" reviews and 14 "very good"), but from all the amenities which are above all other similar ones and especially from the personalized attention we give to all our guests. The untrue and denigrating claims you have written can be easily disproved on site (at the guesthouse) or through the video surveillance cameras which record all the discussions with our guests done in the public spaces. To all the other guests, the vast majority, we would like to say that we look forward to your stay with us and we assure you that we will continue to do our best so that besides the quality accommodation facilities you will have an enjoyable stay and come back anytime with pleasure.

i stayed at the villa 3 months ago for only 3 days and it was great. if you are a friendly person and they are seeing (the manager/guide) he will be friendly to. and i am sorry Cristophe 13100 and all the others who was disappointed. it is your problem. the rooms quality it was excelent and as i said if you are not an imbecile and not behaving like Lindsay Lohan then the people from there will be much more friendly. so in short again the place is magical and beautiful the villa is 5 star for me the food is good to, it is silent and peaceful and very clean and luxurios for that money.

We found Villa Alice to be clean, quiet and nicely appointed. It is within a 10-15 minute walk from the centre of the city. (There is very little left of "old town" Suceava. Instead, there is a new square with cafes and a few shops. Nevertheless, a nice safe place to spend supper). The continental breakfast at Villa Alice was the standard that we found in all the pensions in Romania - selection of cold cereals with various toppings, coffee, tea, juices, buns and sweet breads, yogurt, cold meats, cheeses. Villa Alice also served up hot eggs and sausages not found in some pensions where we stayed. There is, though, no elevator which means we had to lug our luggage up 3 flights of stairs. The pension offered no laundry service which disappointed us.

From all the places we've stayed in Romania, this one left an unpleasant aftertaste. The rooms are fine and clean, the location is good, and there's a free parking lot.

However, while we've had great interaction with the Romanian staff at every other place we've stayed, this one was just weird. They're nice people, just weird. First, we were asked to climb up and down three flights of stairs to check out a larger room (which we declined) than the one we had reserved; on the other hand, the staff was kind enough to later carry our bags upstairs. Then we were asked to pay cash, in the local currency --- "Cause that's what's preferred in Romania" (cards were fine at all other Romanian hotels we've stayed). Second, we never got a receipt, despite having asked for it multiple times, and we even had to ask for our change twice. Third, we asked for a cab to the airport next day, and the staff quoted a 50 RON price, when we had paid 30 RON coming in from the airport a week earlier.

I don't know what was happening at Villa Alice that day, but it felt like... dealing with the mob.

First of all we would like to thank you for your positive comments which refer to the quality of the rooms and the kindness of the receptionist who carried your bags. In regards to the other remarks, we have checked minute by minute all the recorded surveillance footage from the reception and have found out that almost all you have wrote is false. You did not ask for your invoice several times and the receptionist did not want to give it to you. Hence, your first statement is false. Actually, only once was the invoice mentioned and the receptionist asked you if you would like to wait a bit so that he could make it on the spot or if you didn’t have the time to wait he could give it to you later or in the morning. You chose the latter option. The receptionist made the invoice afterwards and issued the receipt (this can be seen on film). So, the invoice and receipt for this accommodation physically exist. On the receipt you can find the time of printing which is the same as the one on the invoice, which is the night of your stay. This was the only discussion regarding the invoice and which unfolded normally as it would with any other guest. The receptionist was prepared to hand you the invoice at your check-out, in the morning at 4 AM, probably being tired and preoccupied with helping you place your bags in the taxi forgot it on the front desk. We have found it beside other invoices which some tourists (guests) left behind as they walked out the front door. We kept them in order to help these guests in case at some point they might need them. If it is legal, we can scan the invoice and receipt and send it to Trip Advisor. No one forced you to pay cash. The receptionist only expressed his opinion that “we would prefer cash”. If the guest agrees, like you have in this case, it is perfectly legal and normal. It is not true that you asked for the change several times. Actually, you never asked for it. At the moment when you paid the receptionist told you that he would bring the change a little later (because at that time he was missing a small amount for the change). When you returned at the front desk, after a short while, to ask about the taxi, the receptionist immediately brought you the change without you even asking anything. You asked the receptionist how much he thinks a taxi ride to the airport might be. He correctly replied that he does not know but assumes that it might be about 50 lei. What is criticisable about that? Lastly, we would like to repeat that all your discussions with the receptionist are recorded from the surveillance cameras and represent an indubitable evidence that your review is false, malevolent, offensive and even injurious toward Villa Alice. We expect that this review be withdrawn immediately. If this does not happen, we will make use of all existing evidence in a lawsuit and will ask for the compensation which is due for deteriorating our public image.
