Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 November 2012

Was visiting Cluj on business and was surprised at the experience we had at the Escala. The customer service was the best I have ever experienced. Adrian and his wife could not do enough for us even preparing a buffet for us at 1am. Rooms were of a high standard and the lounge very homely, and the value for money was very good. The location of the hotel is excellend only minutes from the city centre and around 300 metres from the football stadium. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who are either on holiday or business.

I stayed in Romania for ten days at the trip. The villa is the warmest one.
It is possible to walk to the station and the center of the city.
The host is friendly and gives us useful information about the city.

Wonderful location on the hillside on Str. Crisan, about a 10-15 minute walk to heart of historical downtown. Beautifully furnished rooms in very quiet location. Some rooms have balconies affording a view of Cluj-Napoca. Many dining choices within walking distance. HIGHLY recommend this property.

I had the pleasure of staying at hotel Escala whilst on business in Romania - I arrived very late in the evening and had a very early (04:30) start the next day. The proprietor Adrian could not of been more welcoming and kindly got up and provided coffee and croissants before driving me to the airport. Clean, comfortable rooms and hopefully next time I visit Romania I will have the chance to stay longer!

Nice hotel with a personal touch
Very helpful and friendly staff (family business)
Breakfast OK and we appreciated the flexibility in timing (we only needed to notify the night before on the desired breakfast time)
We would have welcomed to have our own key/badge of the front door, rather than having to ask staff to open and close for us at all times. Although the staff was very flexible and did not complain, we felt a bit pressed not to come back too late to the hotel in order not to wake them up in the middle of the night

Room Tip: More expensive rooms have better furniture

We had an excellent stay for 3 days. Owners are extraordinary friendly, polite and helpful. You can hardly get a better price/performance ratio for your trip. This accomodation can be highly recommended to private as well as business travellers. the proximity to the city centre is also a big asset of the villa escala

We had a wonderful stay at Escala Villa. Our hosts went out of their way to welcome us and make us feel at home. They sent us a personal note in advance, prepared fresh and delicious fruit baskets in our rooms, insisted on helping us carry the bags to our room, took time to advise us on what to see and where to go in town, prepared a nice breakfast for us, and were very personal and friendly throughout.
The rooms were immaculately clean and had a nice homely feel to them. The location was convenient, relatively close to center (very short drive, walkable as well).
Highly recommended for your stay in Cluj!
