Reviewed January 2, 2014

Being a speaker at a local conference I have stayed in this hotel for one night.
First impression is that it looks like new, what is actually very true, compared to other hotels I have stayed in. I have liked the automation controls available in the room for air con, lighting, shades. The room is tidy and clean. It's a very nice idea to have a balcony, one can enjoy some sun out there in case of. I recommend the entrance side of the hotel, as it faces south so enjoying the sunrise in free in the morning.

Room Tip: I prefer the south side because it's sunny.

5 stars? Not even 2
Nice structure no doubt, food is a very basic one, do not get confused by the "Italian style".
SPA never available and the people working in the hotel is not friendly at all.
Just a very positive mentoon for one or two ladies on the reception very helpful and professional

Very good hotel. Stayed 5 nights in October 2013 and cannot complain of the service. I was not expecting a resort-like service but it us very food from a business perspective. Jacuzzi in room was a nice touch. View from room was something I will remember for a long time. Restaurant was also of a very high standard. Pity about the lack of gym facilities - it would have got a better rating.

Stayed for three nights while in Cluj on business.

This is a nice clean hotel with a modern feel and friendly service. It looks very grand from the outside. The room was spacious and clean as was the bathroom.

I ate out in the evenings so cannot comment on the lunch and dinner but there was a wide choice to cater for all tastes at breakfast.

I can easelly say that if you need a break from Romanian life and end up in an europeen athmosphere there is no better place then here.
Staff are very pro. excellent service, not tomuch just perfect.
Rooms are really spacious, with modern amandities.
Huge bathroom with shower and bath and bidet..
I was upgradet to delux room and had amaising view over the city.
It is a litle bit outside of town, but to get the view, you need to go on a hill, don't you?
Not to mention that the most i waited for a city taxi is 2 minuts and the price is between 1.5 to 2 usd to go to city center... and your there in 5 mins.
They have a huge external pool, with a jackusy.
The breakfast bufet is from faar the best from all hotels i have tryed in cluj (about 10 of them)..
So i can only strongely recommand this hotel and will defo set it as my new Cluj base...

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the city, the view at night and early morning is amaising. (from 5th floor)

The place looks really nice and there is plenty of space. I do not agree with "kitschy" like someone said on one of the previous reviews. We were 6 taking diner there a couple of times and we felt great each time. The service is excellent, the food is fresh and tasty. It is a place to go either with friends, family or business. It's suitable for most occasions.
