I chose this hotel based on a recommendation and for it's location close to another hotel where I was attending a conference.
The hotel offers an airport transfer service which was well organised and a good price. The driver was waiting to greet me at the airport and the journey took about 25 minutes. It is located down a side street off the main road but is close to various shops, banks and restaurants.
Reception staff were very friendly, spoke a good level of English and were happy to provide me with additional information and a map to the conference hotel. The hotel décor is modern and brightly coloured with minimal fixtures & fittings.
From the small reception area, rooms are accessed by a small lift (maximum 2 people with suitcases). Each floor has 4 rooms, the lift only goes to floor 5 so for floor 6 you have take the last flight of stairs.
Room 62 was an attic style room with a side window and 2 roof windows with blinds. Electricity is provided using the key card. It was a good size and had all the facilities required: tea / coffee equipment, free water, satellite TV, free Wi-Fi, air-con unit and use of dressing gown / slippers during the stay. Again, the décor was modern and minimalistic in keeping with the rest of the hotel. A small, light desk was available to work on.
The bathroom was small but functional. Complimentary Yves Rocher toiletries were provided. The corner shower cubicle was a reasonable size and the shower itself was novel in that the head changed colour when the water was turned on. All areas of the room were very clean and maintained to a high standard.
Breakfast is served from 6.30am downstairs from Reception. A good choice of hot and cold continental breakfast was available. The staff were very efficient and helpful with menu choices.
Dinner is served in the small restaurant area adjacent to the main reception. The menu was limited but catered for most palettes. Food was cooked to order, presented very well, very good quality and prices were reasonable.
This hotel may not be the biggest but you are made to feel very welcome. It has the feel of a family run hotel even though it isn't. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Romania.
