Reviewed 23 December 2013

I have spent more than a week in this hotel. It has been a special experience, that is certain. If only the fact, that it is not a small hotel with 40 rooms but that it had only few guests. The restaurant or dining room is dominated by 2 screens and a lot of tables, which were most of the time empty.
I had dinner once at about 7 pm, but it appeared that the cook's shift ended at 7. However, the cook was so kind to prepare me a meal. By the way, she was a great person and personality!
What more can be said? The room that I stayed in, was pleasant with a comfortable bathroom.
Breakfast buffet was excellent.
Friendly staff.
Wifi free of charge.
The location of the hotel is opposite a park and close to the Jumbo shopping centre, which is very convenient in view of the restaurants and bars.
The city centre can be reached in a 30 minute walk.
Jumbo is a good place to stay but it is recommended to have dinner elsewhere.

A modern hotel on the outsquirts of the centre of the city with a surprisingly impressive room. We requested a twin room and got a two room suite. Very good breakfast and friendly helpful staff. Bar kept open for us beyond the closing time.

Stayed here for 3 nights in September.

The hotels is relatively new, and our room was particularly large and clean, but the hotel lacked atmosphere. Whether that was down to a lack of english speaking hotel staff, or just because it was a bit characterless I'm not sure.

The pros

Large, clean room
Good breakfast (more extensive than I expected), with hot and cold food, which was both local and international and of reasonable quality, especially fruit juices.
Comfortable bed

The cons

A little bit out of the way from the 'city' centre, but with taxis so plentiful and cheap not a particular problem. (Within walking distance of the Zimbru stadium if you are in Chisinau for the football).
Short opening hours for the restaurant and bar. Went in the first night (Thursday) and the restaurant was closed, went in the third night (saturday) just after 10.00pm and the bar was closed.
Lack of information about local attractions / tours / the city. The hotel couldn't provide even a photocopy of the town centre.

If I was staying in Chisinau again, I wouldnt stay here but thats only because of the location rather than any lack of quality on the hotels part. Would suit someone travelling for buisness rather than a tourist.

In Eastern Europe, the Jumbo is above average, four stars. There is a nice park nearby for walking after sitting in an airplane (I wouldnt at night)
You won't find a Marriott, Hyatt, Sofitel or Hilton in Chisinau. I'd go to Jumbo again. My host chose this hotel because of its location, and I think he knows the owner. The little restaurant offers yummy local food.
BTW If you attempt to understand the rich culture and the language the locals will be pleased to welcome you. If you travel as an Ugly American, don't expect a welcome. I wish I had more time for touring in Chisinau. The city I saw from the tourist guides looked very interesting.

Room Tip: There is a busy street nearby.

No one smiles I think it is against company policy!! I kid you not!!!, bring your own iron, the lady in reception did not know what a iron was, the reception staff seem to forget that we pay them not they pay us. The rooms very average, travellodge in the UK are better rooms!, very basic, location is good that's about it. All hotels in Chisinau are expensive and this is no exception, expect to pay big bucks and in return you get diddly. Breakfast was average nothing special.
