            - central location, parking

            I am very disappointing after my booking hotel charged some extra which I was. Not aware of it I did many times booking but first time here they charged me like this

            Cheap price, not bad location, easy access to the city center.

            I was under the impression that theft at this hotel. Pretty much to be desired as a staff level of service and friendliness. Prices for some services may be different than previously announced.

            I liked the very kind and professional hospitality specially Mr. Claudiu Plugariu - The duty Manager, he was very nice, helpful and cooperative.

            The indication of the prices are misleading. All prices-indicated in bold- are increased with 9% tax. You only know this when you pay your bill.

          • Family with children
            8.8

            Very good oldish hotel in very good location. Truly good value for money, highlight being the swimming pool on the 22nd floor.

            5.8

            Good location in the City Center. Nice Gym with pool.

            Old and worn out place. I do not like that you can smell cigaret smoke even you stay in non smoking floor. Noisy aircon and over all worn out. They should renovate urgently.

          • Single
            9.6

            Position cannot be more central than that. Excellent for anything, really. Good staff, very helpful. Good sized rooms with a nice balcony.

            Internet is not free. In this day and age, this is quite hard to accept as being more than a rip-off. I asked for a high floor room towards the south or west, I got one not too high at all and facing north... Teli in the room was old crt, but functional.
