“I dont go there again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

The location is very good, but the hotel is old. The walls are dirty and old, the atmosphere is like 15-20 years ago.
My room was not clean, the towels where dirty and the bedspread was on the ground. I was wandering how can they waiting the guests like that. The receptionist solve the problem very slowly (she was totaly unprofessional) and finaly I became another room.
The place of the breakfast was looking very bad and the breakfast was varied, but the quality was nt satisfactory.
I think, for this price this quality is not ok.

practical location near the river, easy to reach by car and close to old town.
we just stay for a short night to continue our journey and for this purpose it was perfect.
It definitively has seen its best years some time ago but is still nice and offers a good value for the price (we paid 40€ p.N incl parking for double room, no breakfast).
parking under surveillance available (2€)

A comunist hotel. Nothing changed since 20 years ago. The only nice thing is the location, near the river. Everthing about this hotel is old-fashioned: the staff, the design, the equipment, the food, the aao called spa,...

Quite OK hotel , well positioned ( walking distance from the old town) , good service , the rooms are not very large but for one night and one person it was OK. Next morning at breakfast it was a different story: poor selection , the omelette was cold so were the sausages , I had to ask for watter and warm food.Dissapointing! I think it's better to have your breakfast somewhere else!

Very good location at the river, close to a tram stop and the inner city. Prices are reasonable. The building interior has a 90's feeling, but otherwise it is ok. The room was also ok, except that we asked a room looking to the river and got one looking to the other side (apparently the receptionist did not understand us). However, the heating was terribly noisy. Breakfast is good with a wide choice, but the whole floor of the breakfast room was sticky.

Stayed here last week for 2 nights and I will come back anytime.Free parking, great location near by the river, staff very helpful and smiling. They have a live cooking station for breakfast - one of the very few in Romania. Room was clean with nice balcony. Bathroom full of amenities.
Restaurant has some very nice vegetarian dishes - again one of the very few in Romania.
Totally recommended.
