Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2014

The Kolping is situated high up just on the edge of the old town of Brasov. Be sure to have good directions as it could be difficult to find. Thankfully we found the hotel without too much trouble. Rooms were light and airy, ours had a balcony with lovely views of the old town. Reception is located on the first floor but there is a lift to the bedrooms. The breakfast room had lovely views, there was a veranda were breakfast could be taken if the weather permitted. Hot and cold buffet breakfast was available. Reception staff had good English and were friendly. Only about 10 mins downhill stroll to the old town but the return journey is very steep and takes a little longer. Brasov is a lovely City to explore and there are a great selection of places to eat, drink and watch the world go by. The hotel was very good value, our only complaint would be the local dogs that barked constantly (not something that the hotel can really do anything about). There is a cable car about 15 mins walk away along a lovely shaded terrace which provides wonderful views of the old town. Overall the hotel was very good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room with a view

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Kolping. Conveniently located 10 minutes away from the city center, the hotel offers provides good services at a decent price (breakfast included). Internet works pretty good and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The place also offers dinner, and there is a small shop, with souvenirs, crackers and cigarettes at the reception. However, if you're looking for more consistent shopping, the city center is your closest option, there are no shops around.
I really enjoyed the view, from my window I could see the entire city, looks great at night.

Room Tip: For a great view, pick the rooms at the last floor.

Hotel Kolping was one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayedin. The room, the halls and everywhere smelled and looked clean. The bed, the pillow and the matress were extremely comfortable. The breakfast was adequate, the coffee was delicious, and the view from our room's little balcony was really nice. Staff were helpfull and kind. The only downside was that it is not inside the historical city, so you need to walk about 15 minutes, the final part of the hike uphill, we stayed only 1 night so it wasn't a big problem for us. It costs around 5 lei from city center by taxi.

Large spacious rooms with plenty of storage. Only issue is, they didn't have lifts and so would be difficult for wheel chair bound folk, or those who have difficulty with stairs. All steep and narrow. But the hotel is on a hillside and so it is difficult to reach anyway. Lovely views over Brasov & not too far to walk into the centre.
Food was average and indeed better than other hotels I'd stayed at in Romania. THey don't really cater for vegetarians. Good salad for starter tho'.
Barking dogs kept us awake.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Everything was very nice and pleasant. The room was big, the bed was comfortable, the food was good. The staff was careful and helpful. The place has a great view on the city The old city centre is just 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel.

First they have a good location with a nice view above the city center. Also is close to old city, but a little hard to rich because is on the hill. Nice view from the restaurant but they serve only the breakfast, wich is continental and decent.

Second the rooms are ugly, with cheap furniture and horrible mattress! We had a awful sleep. Lucky us we stayed only 1 night!
Also at 10degrees they did not want to start the heat!
Overall the price is to high for such a room.

Hotel Kolping is located up on the hill above Brasov (Kronstadt) old town.
That gives you a fantastic view over the old town (especially black church).
Its not really far to the old town/main square but one should consider the quite steep street up to the hotel.
there is a parking lot right on the hotels property and we always found some space (parking is free for guests).
From the hotel entrance you have to walk upstairs to the first floor where the reception is. here is an elevator to the upper floors.
breakfast is included. the food itself was ok and especially the view from the balcony was great. unfortunately i have to say that they first ran out of cheese, then coffee :-(
the rooms are really big, clean and very comfortable (free WiFi).
During our stay there were constructions made, which didnt bother (no noise in the evening or morning) but they should have a small garden in the back, which was not available.

Room Tip: i dont know if they even have rooms not facing the city. but rooms facing the hill would be a no go...
