“A good hotel”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

I stayed here for one weekend, celebrating with my family on a special occasion. The property is very big, the room was clean and nicely decorated. However everything one could see in the rooms, hallways and the hotel's interior (I refer to furniture and details) were very old. For me this is definitely not a 5 star hotel, looks like an old hotel from the 80's. On the other hand the breakfast was very good, not extraordinary , the products were not great quality (nothing premium) but the choice was very wide. Overall I wouldn't come back to stay here.

if you order breakfast in the room, although the breakfast is included in the room rate, they will charge you the full price of breakfast 30 euro per person , instead of a modest service charge like all other hotels . You also have to pay for internet 15 euro per day

Room Tip: opt for radisson , fair charges modern hotel, super location

The enormous polished marble lobby sets the tone for this undeniably grand pile. Behind the Parliament Palace and part of the overall design plan for the area. The reception staff are very professional; the concierges exceptionally helpful, as are the bellhops. The rooms are large, some with a view of the Parliament - a megalomaniac folly. The furnishings are substantial, modern and comfortable; luxury bathrooms with shower and tub. You can do all your shopping in the lobby with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Rolex and Bang & Olufsen (this is irony). Shirts are Lei 28.

The one slight problem is that you are a bit far from the Old City and will need a taxi. The bellhops will put you in one and tell the driver where to go. Coming back is tricky. Not for communication reasons, but taxi drivers seem to regard foreigners as an easy touch: Meters are frequently 'broken'. Taxis have the mileage rate on the outside. Never get in a taxi with a rate starting with 3; 1.39+ is more like it. And there is no such thing as a night rate.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Parliament and wonder.

Very nice hotel with big rooms. Large and older style but kept very well. The staff is excellent as well as the restaurants. Pool could be bigger and a bar that would stay open late at night would be welcome additions, though the casino downstairs makes up for it, if you are into it.

The hotel itself is OK, however, it doesn't really come up to the Marriott standard so don't expect too much. The employees were excellent and really try very hard to satisfy your every need.
The rooms are quite generously proportioned and the amenities adequate.

The lounge breakfast was just OK, we didn't try the restaurant as the lounge was included in the somewhat expensive price so we didn't fell like paying again. The coffee machine was a godsend, and you just helped yourself allday. Many people also ate dinner in the lounge as it was quite generous but you did need to be quite quick as the hoards will eat it out and it doesn't seem to be replaced too readily.
The worst part was the long walk to everything apart from the Palace. That would be why I would not stay again unless I was using the convention facilities for business.

Room Tip: High floors have a good view

It is indeed a 5 star hotel. All the employees are nice and helpful. The cleanness of the hotel is saying everything. They are really taking care of every detail to make your stay pleasant.
The rooms are not so big, but they are clean as I said, and very comfortable. I am not so sure, but to be honest I did not pay attention, why some TV channels are with tax, but this is not a very big issue, just a little bit upset that maybe we did not give our interest to know, or maybe they should have told us. Anyway, everything else was in good order.
By the way, it's a great location for professional couple pictures. :-) Our photograph loves it, and we also agreed.
