Room Tip: the duplex room was not having a proper sun shade / curtains.... a bit frustrating .... if you wanna...

Spent 4 nights here in July in the 3* section of the hotel. Large spacious room, more like a suite.
Well located 10 min walk into old town, although taxis are cheap if you dont want to walk.
Good breakfast and helpful staff.
Only downside is that we stayed during a heatwave and the 3* rooms dont have airconditioning

This hotel can be reached by Taxi from the rail station in less than 10 minutes and the old town center also can be reached on foot in 10 minutes. The taxi fare from the rail station was less than 10 lei.

I booked on www.easytobook.com. It was 250 lei/night for a single room with breakfast. The hotel has a new section which is rated 4 star. The older section is rated 3 star. My room was in the older section. It was quite spacious and well maintained.. It had a sofa and a chair also. Bed was comfortable. The bathroom was large and clean with all the toiletaries.. To reach the rooms in the older section, one must use quite a few stairs. The newer 4 star section was very modern and appeared to be well furnished.

The staff was very helpful and welcoming. There were two computers in the lobby which can be used free.

The buffet breakfast was plentiful and very good.

I will definitely stay here again if I return to Brasov.

What makes this hotel very good in particular is the helpfulness of the staff. I stayed there for three nights in Feb and it was snowing and minus 4 outside. But inside it was very warm - too warm indeed. No need to take warm PJs to this hotel. My room was very spacious and was my first experience of having a mirror on the ceiling. The breakfast was a buffet affair with a range of hot food (a bit stodgy perhaps) choice of cereals, muffins etc. I ate in the dining room every night and the food was surprisingly good and the service was excellent. The wifi in the hotel is excellent and worked wonderfully without a hitch. I would recommend this hotel for comfort, convenience, location and very good service.

Stayed there 2 nights in Jan2012. There was parking right in front of the hotel in a gated area or in the hotel garage available. Check in was friendly and efficient. Room was comfortable with a big bathroom. However even with turning down the radiator heaters in the room and opening windows the room was very hot and did not cool down for a sleep right temperature. We had outside temps of -8 deg C though. Bed was ok, average. There was a huge flat screen TV in the room with good TV selection. Hotel is in fair walking distance to the old town and restaurants (10 mins) as well as within 10 mins drive to the industrial areas. Breakfast was ok, nothing special.

Spent my winter break there - three years in a row.

Pros:
- Proper four star standards. That means cleanliness, service, space, the works. Furbishing in good taste. Well, except for the mirror on the ceiling in Deluxe rooms... but somehow i didn't find that a bad thing :). Don't bring there any fatties, though.
- Good food. Ample choices for breakfast, all fresh and well cooked. A la carte options during the day are decent - nothing out of the ordinary, but certainly satisfactory if you're too lazy to explore other places in Brasov.
- Easy access.
- Partnership with local food/entertainment locations. Granted, this could be further developed, but we ended up celebrating the New Year's in a restaurant recommended by them and had a really great time.
- Underground / outdoor parking.

Cons:
- Fully booked in winter. This year the hotel seems to have been very popular with Polish, French, Russian tourists, who apparently are either always angry or enjoy shouting. Also, the parking lot was filled to capacity.
- A bit pricey. There is cheaper 4 star accommodation elsewhere, if you don’t mind less central locations.
- I can’t figure out why would regular people go to the gym during the holidays. Anyway, don’t count on the fitness gym advertised by the hotel. My personal suggestion – enjoy your holiday and spend the rest of the year keeping in shape.

Conclusion:
Good price/value ratio at 4 star level. I will certainly stay there again this winter and will recommend it to others… as long as they DON’T CROWD UP MY HOTEL around New Year’s!

Plan ahead and book your room early.

Room Tip: In 2011 they have added (at least in some rooms) facilities for the disabled, such as railings for t...
