My husband and I traveled with Viking Cruises and as part of an extension, this was the selected hotel. Based on the location and if traveling on our own, we wouldn't have selected this hotel as it wasn't centrally located, and this is always a must for me. Since we were bussed it wasn't a problem on this trip.
The biggest problem had to do with room comfort. The first room we were assigned, although it was a non smoking room, had a strong odor of smoke, which seemed recent. We immediately asked for a different room and were reassigned to another room on the 7th floor with a lovely view. It seemed very warm so we opened a window. The window was only able to be "cracked" and we did not get any relief. Without any orientation to the room, we instead turned up the air conditioner. This apparently made the heat blow harder. (we later discovered the heat in the hotel is centrally controlled... either on or off) at 11:30 pm we were unable to tolerate the sweltering heat (btw, it was cool outside as this was mid april and it had recently snowed in Brasov) We were politely reassigned another room at this point. The gentleman who brought our next set of keys wouldn't verbally acknowledge that the room was hot, which was a bit annoying. The new room had a window that opened widely, but we had a new issue, not the hotel's fault, and that was a gang of dogs which barked outside our window in the field below for nearly an hour. Since the room temperature was more comfortable, we were able to close the window and pull the drapes and pretty much dampened the noise of the dogs and had a reasonable nights sleep.
A second issue was the shower, which ran hot and cold alternately when we were on the 7th floor. It wasn't an issue on the 3rd floor. I suspect the lower floors sapped the hot water first. On a good note, and very importantly, the staff were extremely accommodating and polite and deserve accolades. The lattes in the lobby were wonderful. Breakfast was fine.
