Reviewed 4 January 2011

We made an online reservation for the period from the 31st Dec-2nd Jan on the 27th of December. We got an email on the evening of the 28th asking for a confirmation. We confirmed on the following afternoon (29th). We were travelling in rural Transylvania and had access to internet only once a day, which is typical for a lot of travellers. We checked again on the 30th in the afternoon and, not seeing any reply, assumed it was ok. We travelled all day on the 31st, arriving in Bucharest at 6pm. We were told they had never heard of my name. I used the reception's computer to check my email and found an email sent at 11PM on the 30th (the night before) saying that the confirmation we sent was too late and they'd given our room to someone else – all this more than 24 hours after we'd sent in our confirmation!!!! The person at the reception offered to help us find another hotel, but this kind of treatment is simply unacceptable.

At 30 euro for 1 or 40 euro (breakfast included) for 2 persons one gets a clean, big room in the nicest part of the old centre of Bucharest. Service is so friendly, typically people who go the extra mile. From a girl who carries my heavy bag upstairs for me, to a receptionist who runs after me with my voucher for my breakfast. They even think of warning me to use a hat, since there is a warning for the sun. Ok ,so the the furnishing is tasteless and something is broken in the shower. Who cares. There is even an airco (takes a while to have effect, so put it on a few hours before you want to go to bed). Great value for money and one of the friendliest hotels in Bucharest. Downstairs and next door there is an unsecured high speed network. www.hostel-miorita.ro

Reviewed 14 December 2006

Located in what seems like a converted office block, the rooms have no windows to the outside world.

The bathroom has one dodgy drain, in the middle of the room, so the shower floods the entire space. Plus the small shower curtains mean you have a choice between soaking either the toilet paper or your towel while you wash.

While we were there, there was constant drilling in another part of the building that shook the walls and lasted from 8am til after 6pm.

The harried staff tried to do their best under the circumstances, except one receptionist, who seemed to be permanently having a screaming match with someone on the phone, which we could hear from our room.

At 50euros a night, I couldn't recommend this to anyone.
