Continental Forum Sibiu
Ranked #8 of 30 Hotels in Sibiu
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We had 2 nights here in a junior suite, which was very odd.It appeared to be more a room intended for a single business traveller.The bed was small and had only a single duvet, and there was only one set of towels.We asked for more towels and pillows ,they were never forthcoming, but another duvet was delivered fortunately or sleep would have been impossible.There is a separate toilet, a basin in the bedroom area, and a very tiny bath and shower enclosure, very claustrophobic. Not a room to spend time in, very oddly designed.
Breakfast was as one would expect, given that the hotel takes a lot of large groups, the food quality was average, and the waiters only just coping.We did not eat dinner here.
This was the least good of the five hotels we stayed in during our trip to Romania, and the most disappointing.The others far exceeded our expectations, hopefully Sibiu will get the sort of nice hotel it deserves soon.Meanwhile this is probably the best option, the situation is certainly very good.

I was delighted to read, that our location and some facilities met your expectations, and that you fully enjoyed our beautiful city.
As your feedback is very important to us, it is my pleasure to inform you that we also have rooms where the bathroom is completely separate from the bedroom and rooms are larger. I would really appreciate if you could give us another chance upon your next visit to Sibiu, therefore I kindly ask you to contact me at dorel.brisc@continentalhotels.ro, so I can personally book the reservation for you and make sure that you will be free upgraded to nice room larger, with bathroom being enclosed and separately from bedroom.

We stayed in Continental Forum hotel for one night during a quick stop in Sibiu. We arrived in the hotel around 22:00 and when we entered in the room we felt that the room was cleaned very fast. Not because it was dirty. No, the room was quite clean but not tidy, with things and amenities missing from it as if someone was in a rush to finish up the cleaning and forgot even to put some towels in it. However, when I called the reception to ask for towels and some soap and shampoo, the reply was that quite disappointing: the girl at the reception told me that she will sent it with my husband when he will return back to the room!! (My husband went out to buy some painkillers from the pharmacy). Is this what you call a good hotel service?!

Besides that, the room was ok. Quiet, spacious and clean, with a small mini-bar and a safe, without however a properly large bed (for two persons the bed was ridiculously small and so was the duvet cover!). The closet was too small as well. The bathroom was lacking in privacy since toilet is separated from the bathtub and the sink is located in the middle of the room!

On the other hand, one great advantage of this hotel is its location. Very close to the city center and the places to visit and see, and with a private parking.

Breakfast is decent and with enough choices. However the big disappointment was the coffee!!! This was a black kind of liquid that only resembled coffee by its colour. Pity. And when we asked for another type (cappuccino / espresso) they told us that they can serve it but with an extra charge!! This is something very strange since good coffee is always part of a decent breakfast!

At the end of the day, this is a decent place to stay in the lovely city of Sibiu, but -this being such a centrally located hotel- it ought to be a lot much nicer.

The Continental Forum hotel is a very nice hotel but it should come with a warning regarding the bathroom ! A few akward moments there if you're with a work colleague, as the bathroom has no walls or door, just a bit of a glass wall for the shower and toilet while the sink area communicates with the rest of the room. It might depend on the room time, as double superior rooms seemed to not have this design. Still, the room was big, very spacious, with chairs and a desk. Not a lot of drawers/a closet for clothes. Bed was big and confortable. Didn't try the breakfast but lunch was tasty and although we arrived late at night and the restaurant was closed, the chef made us some sandwiches which was a very nice touch. The staff in general was nice and friendly, catering to our every need. The location is central, close to the main square and at Christmas the huge tree and market.

Room Tip: Ask about the bathroom of the room you're booking, if the original design with glass walls is a...

The room was very clean, a bit small and no balcony though. The toilet was separated from the room with some sort of glass, like a shower, but had space on top and underneath, was a bit odd, but original. We didn't have breakfast there, as it wasn't included. The best thing is that it's right in the city center, 2 minutes walk from the main square, so great location. Overall we liked it, would return there.

I've stayed with my family - 4 persons in an executive suite for 3 days in may.Overall a nice experience with some amendments.The good parts : large and clean hotel, very good position to explore city center, nice rooms.The breakfast is good, but could be improved.The SPA is very nice and modern.All the staff was very helpful and polite.The bad parts : the bathrooms are made by glass and you have no privacy in.When you travel with big kids, even to change before/after shower is a problem.I think that the rubber seal of the windows can be replace in order to ensure the peace during the night , if the room is located above the parking.

On a visit to Sibiu we stayed with our daughter at Continental Forum Hotel, near the Old City. A very nice hotel and restaurant at reasonable prices. The rooms and spaces are large, because the building is big. It is a combination between clasic (building) and modern style (decoration). Very funny toilets with glass walls, but clean towells. The restaurant was also good, with prompt service and well cooked food.
