Reviewed October 7, 2011

We (an old Norwegian couple) stayed twice at this hotel (two nights and three nights in the end
of September. One of our best hotel expriences ever! (and we have travelled rather extensively the last twenty years). Hotel very comfortable, but what makes it uniquqe is the quality, service and warmth of the people. The ownwer, Dan, is a fountain of knowledge about Romania (and has a great sense of humour.)He and his manager, Dana, arranged for us a 3 day trip to the middle ot the Donau Delta. Fantastic!On behalf of myself and my wife (in the words of Arnold S.):
We will be back!

Wonderful stay and experience. Extremely friendly and helpful people. Good, quiet location; scrupulously clean rooms and public areas. Excellent breakfast and in-room facilities good. And - at last - a room which had lighting you could read in!! Thanks for your hospitality Kalin et al.

The old adage 'never judge a book by its cover' certainly applies to this hotel. From the outside it looks drab located in a side street in which the road ie presenlt being dug up. Once inside it is amazing. Lovely facade and colour scheme, excellent rooms,very clean with staff who speak English (a pity as I wanted to practice my Romanian). Arriving by train it is conveniently located between the train station and the city. And finally the totally unexpected - upon arrival receiving a complimentary snack with a glass of Rumanian wine.

The road did cause some problems in the last month because the guys from the Town Hall decided it is time to change the surface of the street and you can imagine all the problems that resulted from this, but now they just finished working on the street, it is 100% ready and it looks just great, almost it was all worth it! Glad to know you enjoyed the Christina experience and for sure we are waiting for you again to see the new surroundings! Multumesc mult pentru review, este foarte important pentru noi!

It's really hard to add anything that's not already been said, so I admit it - I'm writing just so that I'll get a reply. Most Tripadvisor hotels reply, if at all, only to try to placate complainers; Christina, understandably, doesn't seem to get any of those, so they reply to everyone! Amazing, but completely reflective of the truly excellent service throughout, from the owner through all the frontline staff - Dana, Bea, Andreea, etc.
Hotel itself is as delightfully, but constructively, gimmicky (sorry, conceptual) as the brochure suggests - the eco-driven design, colour co-ordination, efficient a/c, coffee machine, electrically tilting beds, and, best of all, the illuminated shower heads. I've no idea of the purpose - most of us don't need red-lit water to know we're scalding ourselves - but I did enjoy them. Likewise everything else - thanks to all concerned.

Dear Chris, you said that you cannot bring anything new in your review that others did not say, I don’t know if this is true (and even so, all are different and it is a pleasure to answer them) but for sure I have never seen such good pictures with the shower heads, or any pictures at all if I think about it! And speaking of the illuminated shower heads, I think you are right, but you must admit they are cool and they don’t work with batteries or any other source of electricity so they are friendly with the environment. It was a pleasure to read your review, not to mention having you as our guest, thank you very much!

From the moment we stepped through the front door we were greeted in a friendly yet prfessional way. Bea and Andrea were amazing and could not do enough to help us. The (Lilac) Room is minimalistic, yet understatedly tasteful. Very simple, but everything works well together. We even mastered the nespresso machine after only one tepid cup of coffee.

There was absolutely nothing about the hotel we could mark-down unless we were being very picky. george the waiter had exactly the right balance between attentiveness and discretion. Even Adrian the receptionist (only met him once) was affable and efficient.

On the wole, the entire team worked well together to provide an exceptional experience which we can honestly say has not been bettered anywhere at any price.

If you want an easy, value for money hotel, with amazing staff, lovely food and a superb ambience - you will do very well to eter this place.

Oh, the only downside - I wish they hadn't been resurfacing the road outside. Having 30 hairy-a*sed navvies outside kicking up dust and laying blacktop kind of spoilt the photographs. How petty was that!!!

Go tere. It's lovely.

Room Tip: Ask for additional coffee pods - you only get one each. Run one cup of water through the Nesresso f...

It is very nice and considerate of you to remember so many people from the hotel staff; I don’t think I need to tell you that everybody here reads the reviews and one like yours is a great source of delight!
Regarding the resurfacing of the road, I would like to take the occasion to thank you and everybody else who had to put up with this for being so tolerant and understanding! FINALLY, after one month of eating dust, the whole project is over and finished, the 30 guys who you described so well packed their building equipment and left; although I have to admit that they and Mr. mayor did a pretty good job!
Thank you very much for your feedback!
PS: thank you for the room tip, it’s very useful

Arrived to the hotel at 9am straight off a flight from Ireland and we were greeted with complimentary breakfast, followed by complimentary cheese and wine later that day! Staff couldnt have been more helpful, and the hotel was spotless
