“OK but for the bathroom odour”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Spent a week at the hotel on business. Clean room with balcony facing to the front of the building, comfortable bed, robe and slippers if needed (not), good shower but after three days there was an increasing odour de drain emanating from the bathroom. The sanitary ware was clean and functional, though. Colleague on same trip had real issues trying to obtain wi-fi: but to be fair, I didn't even try to log on. Breakfast was alright but I stuck to cereals, fruit etc. after finding the cooked breakfast was not to my taste. The hotel is situated a few minutes from a couple of pleasant parks for a stroll around. Arrival and departure were a pleasure, with the staff helpful and polite despite the unsocial hours dictated by airline schedules.

Stayed at the hotel with a football trip
First day room key failed after we checked in ...was locked out of my room ( couldnt get to my phone / clothes etc took 4-5 hours to get handyman out to open door ..then had to move into another room)
food very poor and hotel very dated
main problem was the hotel will rip you off at any attempt ..... A piece of glass was broke when a lad sat on the edge of a small glass table in the reception area ( glass was not toughened and lad had gash in his back ...really lucky it wasnt a child ) hotel charged 500 EURO FOR THE GLASS!!!!!! Even though the hotel could produce no invoice / etc for the glass and the whole table was worth peanuts ----another room had a hand towel missing which they charged £25!!!! ....bear in mind a pint of beer is around 50p-75p ....hotel staff knew they were scamming people but said its a set charge???
Over half the people on the trip had sickness and the runs which was a mixture of the very poor quality food and the poor standard of hygeine in the hotel
Ive stayed in over 100 hotels and this is the first time ive wrote a review .....Take my word for it and pay the extra for a better hotel

The hotel seems to be one of the most famous in Chisinau, with business travellers, politicians and foreign tourists staying there alike.

The rooms are fine, with all the basic amenities and an individual safe, which was appreciated. Our upgraded room had a bathrobe and slippers. The location is very central and facing the wonderful park, and the area seems quite safe in general. There is a restaurant and bar on site with average food (the bread at breakfast was always a bit stale, but the warm food was good).

The staff was friendly and everything was more or less good. One of the issues is the slow and patchy internet, which only reached up to the second floor, so I had to sit in a random corridor to check my emails. The room could have been a teeny bit cleaner, but that wasn't really too big an issue.

The one outrageous issue were the prices - 20 euros for one person for one hour for the sauna?? I would never even consider using such a "service.'

I would stay here again - definitely fell in love with the park.

Room Tip: We chose the slightly upgraded room, which was very big and had a balcony facing the park. The only...

This isn't necessarily a hotel to be in a hurry in - especially at breakfast when coffee comes at a leisurely pace (but individually made in the kitchen, which is nice). Comfortable bed with really nice pillows, quiet, shower (no bathtub) but good high-pressure hot water. Front desk are efficient enough, and very helpful. Lifts are a bit slow - but it's not New York, so don't complain! The colour scheme is old-style brown, but the place is clean and well run and good value for money. The internet worked fine for me, though I heard others had some problems with it.

Room Tip: It may be that some rooms have better wireless service than others.

I have been placed in this hotel twice, on work-related visits.

I think it is high in the ranking of former-Soviet country hotels (and I know the ones that are low in that ranking...). It is in a good position to walk to essential places in the centre of Chişinău, but nevertheless the location is quiet. Clean, well-appointed rooms (working out the toilet flush can, however, be complicated) attentive reception staff, good breakfast, excellent internet facilities.

If I am placed there on the next visit I will be entirely content.

Chişinău is a charming place: not beautiful, but gentle hospitable people, and a goo atmosphere.

Book for me by business, clean but old room, updated bathroom. Good breakfast included. Nice friendly staff, quiet and good place to rest. Easy to walk and cabs are very cheap. I was here for a week and satisfied.

I visited in September 2011 for a few days on a business trip; this is a nice hotel centrally placed and adjacent to a pleasant park. The rooms are fine - clean and comfortable and the food good. Attentive staff and I would have no hesitation going back.

Room Tip: A room facing the park.
