Hotel Lev Or II
Ranked #133 of 169 Hotels in Bucharest
Reviewed 7 November 2013

first, it is not really close to any interest point in Bucharest;
the hotel is not close (by foot) to piata victoria as they say
or to the train station "gara de nord". you will have to walk
about 15-20 minutes to any of this points; but this is definitely
not the only problem about this property;

the room was small, the sanitary installation was extremely
old fashionedand it was a horrible smell from the Sewerage
and it was possible to open the window only a little bit
so that the "air condition" will not run away...so I had to
suffer that smell all the time.
they also had a problem with the water pressure.

finally to mention that this hotel authorized my credit card for
all the stayin period though the penalty for 'no show' supposed
to be for only one night.

when I was in bucharest the city was almost fully booked,
and that is why I came to here but I did not imagine how bad
can it be.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for sharing your experience about our hotel with the Travel Advisor Community. All the feedbacks are important to us as they help us improve constantly.
Our hotel is situated 600m away from "Piata Victoriei" and 900m away from "Gara de Nord" Train Station and we consider reasonable to say these are "walking distances". We do understand that each person has different opinions about walking but we stress again that these distances are in anybody's walking range.
We are very sorry to hear that you have encountered some problems with the bathroom (unpleasant odor) but we want to assure you that we have taken all necessary measures to eliminate them.
It is true that most of our windows do not open very wide, but it is just a security precaution given the size of our windows. Taking into consideration that Hotel Lev Or also has rooms with windows that fully open, we would have gladly changed your room if we have had known of the problem .
Regarding the authorization of your credit card for the entire stay we admitted that was a mistake and we apologize for that.
Despite the fact that you have found “no reason” to stay with us we hope that you will change your mind and be our guest once again, whenever the opportunity arises.

Hotel Manager

We stayed there for 6 nights, it was confortable, big room. The room and the public areawas very clean.
It was not very hard to find but the parking was a nightmare. Is close Victoria Place, pretty close to the public transportation stations and the main train station.
The stuff was very kind and helpful to suggest about play to visit.

I stayed here a couple of times being on a business trip. It is pretty close to the main train station, close to the subway, so it is easy to get around using public transportation. If you come by car, the street is very narow and hard to find. The parking consists in the hotels sidewalks and the back of a schoolyard, but I have found parking place each night, so it isn't a real problem. Anything that keeps your car safe is good, right? On the map it seems to be close to downtown, but in fact you are about 3 or 4 km away.
The stuff was very helpful, especially with the acces cards who got demagnetized several times. The rooms are small and the furniture is old and needs to be changed. Don't get me wrong, it does its work, but it gives an 'antique' air to the room. Room that can be a little more cleaner. The bathtub for example never convinced me to take a bath, a quick shower was all,
The sleep quality is good, the heating worked fine and there are no complaints here. Breakfast is very good. Actually is what convinced me to come back the second time.
As a conclusion, am good hotel for a Business trip if you can live with the problems above. For a familly I won't recommend it. nor for couples.

I was in Lev-Or hotel at October 2011 for 6 nights.
The street might be a bit hard to find but the location is good and safe & quiet area.
Location: i walked to all atractions and never needed transportation (i love walking i shoud say). 15-20 mins walk to the main areas, 10 mins walk to Main train station.
Staff: friendly and most helpful for my tourist questions..
Breakfast: it was good. im Vegetarian and they have lot of non-vegeterian options.. but you can ask for the Vegeterian omlete which is very good.. you have other cold cuts to choose...the only problem i found is that for 6 breakfast it start to be boring as they serve the same everyday...
Room: mostly clean, big enough.
Internet: i had my laptop with me and WIFI didnt work from my room but they have Network connection by cable and it work well!

Stayed 4 nights from 23rd.Lost my wallet on the first morning in Bucharest with everything in it.Dont know what I would have done without the staff's help,probably be still there now in some gutter on the street.Comfortable sized bedrooms with big tv,mini fridge and great central heating. Beautiful big breakfast room which served anything you can expect for breakfast and great tasting food,omellet especailly good. Also fantastic 24 hour student bar across the road were you can buy, coffee,food cigs( app £2.15 for 20). Defo will go back the next time I am in Bucharest.

My friends and I stayed in this hotel after searching for a hotel with triple rooms that was also convenient to the National Opera. We thought the rate was more than fair, especially since it included an ample breakfast. The rooms were clean and pleasant, and the bathroom was quite luxurious (a Jacuzzi!) and immaculate. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The taxi ride to the National Opera was inexpensive, even with a driver who got completely lost and had to ask for directions three times.
