Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for a business trip. Entrance suggests a very luxury hotel, but it is actually not. The rooms are really standard, nothing special like coffee, free water, toothbrush etc. but it was ok. Wifi works fine, no login needed anymore, to many complaints probably. Breakfast is ok, enough choice in my opinion.
I would go there next time the restaurant Belvédère in same building is excellent by the way!

The good: Spacious rooms, good size bathroom, good wifi

The bad: It took changing my rooms 3 times to find one with an air conditioner that worked since it is unseasonably hot and too noisy to leave the windows open. Each person told us different story. The first one said the air conditioner would be fixed by the evening and it was not (first room change). The second person said it just took a little while for the air conditioner to work but it did not (second room change). It felt like a post-communist Fellini film. Finally, I got one that worked.

The ugly: Breakfast is boring. Having staying in other hotels throughout Romania, you get the same thing every day. There is no creativity or diversity. It you are on an extended stay, it just gets completely boring.

As a final comment, the experience on the patio is mixed. Sometimes you get service quick. Other times staff are too busy smoking, texting, talking on the phone or flirting with each other.

There is a need for a better customer service orientation, from reception to wait staff. The manager doesn't need to respond to my critique; she or he needs to do something about the way staff interact (or don't interact) with guests.

Would I stay here again? Probably because it is a good location and has some modern conveniences. But there is a lot to be desired from staying here.

Room Tip: If it is hot, go check your room and make sure the air conditioner works before checking in.

Great choice in town, in middle of main square.
New Building offers a great selection of modern, spacious and well furnished rooms.
Breakfast is just average. Free Internet throughout the whole building.
Parking lot just connected.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at new building

I stayed for a week in two different rooms. The first was a suite with a sitting room, bedroom, bathroom and 2 balconies. The plus being able to open 2 doors for ventilation (room smelled of cigarettes) and the bathtub (big). The bathroom would smell of sewer during the night. The room was cleaned ONLY after complaining. There was no kettle, coffee, tea, etc. only a mini-bar. The Wi-Fi was fine.
The second room was a standard room with dodgy internet. It was supplied with a cable to connect to the internet but it worked intermittently. The air conditioning put out heated air even after asking the hotel to check it. With only one window that partially opened the room was stifling. Again, no kettle. The breakfasts were ok, I have better in cheaper accommodations but the staff was always nice.
Would I return? Maybe - the location was perfect.

Have stayed here a couple of times on business. Overall this is a good hotel, the bar and lobby are comfortable and stylish, service efficient - food in restaurant was great, but breakfast just about ok (lack of choice, lots of empty serving dishes).

The rooms are comfortable, wi-fi is free but temperamental, you have to keep logging back in. Air con was a bit hit & miss. Mini bar is well stocked.

Bathroom was ok, shower reasonably powerful but it only came up to shoulder height so you had to take the attachment off to wash your hair.

They do smoking & non smoking rooms, so make sure to state your preference.

Overall, it has the quirks associated with many European hotels, but a lot of good points, and is good value so a good choice overall

Stayed here for a weekend because my wife had business meetings there from the following Monday. We booked a suite but as others remarked this was just a slightly bigger room with nothing special for a higher price.

The staff are not empowered to fix problems so the lock on our door which failed was not fixed and the room not properly cleaned until we involved a manager. The hotel has been refurbished but not the breakfasts or the service.

On the other hand the Belvedere restaurant is great for both food and service. I generally avoid hotel restaurants but this is an exception

When we first got to this hotel, they mixed up reservations and folks who wanted separate beds did not get them but the staff worked hard to correct this and everyone was satisfied. The breakfast was the worst of our trip but still edible. Free wifi in all the rooms and the hotel is located in a great location. Great rooms, very clean and he staff is ready to help!

Room Tip: If you want a double room (separate beds) be sure to ask.
