“Not your best choice”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

The lovely woman on reception could not have been more helpful. Good wifi. Take bus 31 to the city centre or take a cab, very cheap. As the crow flies this hotel is close to the station. In reality it is up and over the rail lines. You wouldn't want to walk it with a big bag.

Not so clean. I would not have walked on the floor in socks. Quite grubby bathroom. I was not that impressed with this fairly dirty and unkempt city. Best to find another place for a stopover if heading to the painted monasteries.

Room Tip: I don't believe that such a room would exist in this hotel.

Hotel itself is okay, bit of a college feeling, but clean. Liked the view from the bathroom to the mountains (not counting the nearby construction site). The noise from the road is almost unbearable, since the hotel is situated by a road and a bus-station, and the windows are not soundproof.
The coffee and breakfast was great !
Overall if you are on budget it's okay, but expect the noise - not for lightsleepers.

Room Tip: 207/307 is noisy for sure.

Fortunatelly , my stay was very short, one night before to take a plane for Palma de Mallorca.But if you like to feel retro this is a perfect communist-era hotel.This hotel is situated far from the centre, it is necessary to take a bus for three station.Nothing interesting in the area, just a small market.It is difficult to sleep , in front of the hotel is a highway with an enormous traffic so the top floor will be quieter.No lift.The rooms were not clean.The walls looked repulsive.The whole hotel itself looked outdated.
My room, 204 very small and dirty with a curious smell had an old furniture.The walls were dirty and the carpets too.Dusty bathroom, cheap toilet paper , grey towels.
The only good thing about my stay was the attitude of a young receptionist
.I cannot understand for what this dirty hotel got two stars.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room before to pay.

Located just up the railroads, the hotel can be quite noisy, and has a somewhat creepy feeling to it. That being said, the rooms are overall clean, as well as the shower.
If you're not a smoker make sure to mention it, otherwise the bed and pillow will smell like cigarettes too.

At €20 a night it's never going to be the 'Hilton' of Cluj, but for early or late night rail connections you couldn't go too far wrong. Despite the 'horror hotel' corridors and the sleepy welcome at the front desk, the hotel is clean and comfortable enough, but quite basic. Bathrooms are like that too, but with good water pressure and temperature in the shower. It might also be worth watching out for some dodgy electrical fittings - in particular don't put your hand behind the head of the bed without checking what's there...
Duvets are a little on the small side, but if there are two you it is always possible to snuggle up for warmth.
In short this is no 'boutique hotel', but for one night to put your head, it'll do just fine.

Good location, near the raillway station (over the bridge) and the bus station, easy to reach, good beds, nice staff, recommended for someone being for the first time in Cluj and not having great expectations. Little money, breakfast is not obligatory (the room is cheaper without it), decent.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the main road, the bridge, not the bus station.
