Adrian and his family provided everything a guest could want during my brief stay. Always with a smile! Lovely small hotel within a short walk of city centre. Highly recommended as the best place to stay in Clij-Napoca. (Don't expect a swimming pool to do laps in though).

We arrived in this charming little town during a very wet week. The owner, Adrian, and his family were very welcoming and accommodating. I had asked for a non smoking quiet room and we were provided just that. It was very private and we slept so very well, it was wonderful. They are great with suggestions for what to do and provide you with maps of the city. The have thought of the details and there is coffee, tea and even umbrellas on site - which we made much use of due to the weather :) The hotel itself is about 10 minutes from the city center by foot. There is always a family member on site to assist you, they are ever present. They even helped my husband dry his pants when we got caught in a rain storm and were soaked! The breakfast was affordable and the they make the timing flexible, an easy way to start you day. I was even offered garden made peppermint tea from the owners sister that helped calm my travel weary digestive system. It was very nice. The owner is very proud of his residence and Romania. He is happy to discuss current and historical events as well as the trials and tribulations of running a business in the economic climate the country currently faces. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a more personalized Cluj accommodation then your average run of the mill hotel.

Hotel Villa Escala is a cosy little hotel. The atmosphere is almost like being at home. Rooms are spacious and quiet. Fresh fruits in the room as a courtesy of the house.
I can not judge the location towards the city center as I had one short overnight stay only.
There is a small garden as well, usable to the guests.
I would definitely book again for the friendly atmosphere, which is different from most business hotels I normally book.

Was visiting Cluj on business and was surprised at the experience we had at the Escala. The customer service was the best I have ever experienced. Adrian and his wife could not do enough for us even preparing a buffet for us at 1am. Rooms were of a high standard and the lounge very homely, and the value for money was very good. The location of the hotel is excellend only minutes from the city centre and around 300 metres from the football stadium. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who are either on holiday or business.

I stayed in Romania for ten days at the trip. The villa is the warmest one.
It is possible to walk to the station and the center of the city.
The host is friendly and gives us useful information about the city.

Wonderful location on the hillside on Str. Crisan, about a 10-15 minute walk to heart of historical downtown. Beautifully furnished rooms in very quiet location. Some rooms have balconies affording a view of Cluj-Napoca. Many dining choices within walking distance. HIGHLY recommend this property.

I had the pleasure of staying at hotel Escala whilst on business in Romania - I arrived very late in the evening and had a very early (04:30) start the next day. The proprietor Adrian could not of been more welcoming and kindly got up and provided coffee and croissants before driving me to the airport. Clean, comfortable rooms and hopefully next time I visit Romania I will have the chance to stay longer!
