“Ideal for catching a plane”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We booked the Rin hotel with the express purpose of being near the airport on the day we were to fly out of Bucharest. This hotel is ideal for this purpose. The hotel provides hourly shuttle service free of charge to the airport . Make sure you book this service at the reception desk.

The hotel has very friendly staff. Ms.Cristina Toros who had managed our reservation came down personally from her office to invite us in to their hotel. The rooms were clean and large with comfortable beds and the bathrooms clean and good.

The breakfast spread was exhaustive and sumptuous the best we have seen so far in Bucharest.

The hotel deserves a five star rating if all the above considerations are taken into account. However there are several matters that make me give it only four stars.

1. Air conditioning. The hotel did say they have an air conditioner. This was not working . We had booked one single and one double and the AC was not working on both the rooms. The day being hot the room was warm and very uncomfortable. On informing the front office a mechanic came over to inspect and after about an hour we got a call saying that the central A/C had been switched off because the season was now officially winter. That sounded like an absurd excuse for either saving electricity or bad maintenance. Winter nor summer the room was hot and uncomfortable and required an air conditioner

We had to open the window to let in fresh air inside and while that helped an annoying street light on the opposite building kept blinking right through the night.Plus of course the traffic noise added to the discomfort.

2.The second problem was lack of information. Apparently the hotel has two restaurants. A continental restaurant and a traditional restaurant. No one seems to think it was important to inform the guests of this facility. At lunch time we sat in the continental section because that was the only one adjacent to the lobby and we believed it was the only place to eat. The waitress who appeared to be a trainee could not help us when we kept asking her why a hotel in Bucharest was not offering some Romanian dishes. ( She could not understand English but our friend , a Romanian spoke to her in her native tongue )The grilled chicken in this restaurant was far below standard and we decided we will
not have our dinner there that evening.

At dinner time however we came to know through hearsay that the hotel had another restaurant offering traditional food. We located it after asking around and here we had one of the best traditional meals that day.

The hotel management must install a board at the lobby to clearly indicate the restaurants available in the hotel for the benefit of guests who are new to the place.

The discomfort of a non AC room and the food in the continental section of the hotel would have clearly made this hotel an average one however the superb rooms and the excellent breakfast spread and the quality of the traditional restaurant elevates it to very good level.

Without the negatives I had mentioned above it would be an excellent hotel. nevertheless we would surely come again.

Room Tip: If the AC is not working and the day is hot ask for a room away from the sunlight.

Overall value for money hotel, near the airport with free shuttle bus.
For people that need to be near the international aiport is ideal.
I had no time to visit the gym and spa area. As I was informed it has free sauna etc
Value for money
Shuttle bus every one hour for the airport.
No significant issues with noise etc

Rin Hotel is perfect for one night if you have an early morning flight. The staff is friendly and efficient. The rooms are spacious, updated, quiet, and immaculately clean. WiFi worked fine in my room. There is a free shuttle hourly to and from the airport. I paid 39 Euro for a single without breakfast in September 2013. There's a $3/day parking fee if you have a car. I didn't use the athletic facilities but I noticed quite a few people who did. When I took the 5:00am shuttle I saw that airline staff stayed here also. I will stay here next time I have an early morning flight.

in generaly, Rin is a good and clean hotel. good breakfast. The stuff is a bit "cold".
we had a technical problem (the showers water didn't sink)- we said it at the reception, but nothing happened. They didn't fix it.
The spa is nice, but they don't give any treatments.
they suply free shuttle to the airport.

for one night before a flight is ok. but we stayed more nights....

Room Tip: it's ok for one night before a flight

We choose to stay at RIN airport because it was the best choice for one night stay for us.
We had our flight in the morning so from RIN with their shuttle we reached the Otopeni Airport in 10 minutes instead facing the heavy traffic in the morning from city center.
We liked RIN for beautiful and clean rooms and with nice sheets and towells and for budget price they offered and of course the shuttle to Otopeni Airport facility.
It was a good choice for us because they offer long term parking services so we left our car at their parking during our vacation for 3 weeks.
They offered the best parking price in Otopeni area.
The noise form takeoff or landing of the airplanes we barely heard and did not disturbed us, as we had our room to ground floor.
We did not have the time to eat breakfast or dinner at the hotel but i am convinced that they offer quality meals.

Room Tip: Maybe a ground floor will provide quiet sleep regarding the planes takeoff and landing.

It was the best choise for a night stand in Bucharest between two flights. Even the price included accomodation and breakfast, we left the hotel very early in the morning and we had a early-bird's breakfast. There were just some croissants, coffee and water, but it was something at least.
