    This hotel is hard to review. It is a strange place. Having read the reviews in advance our expectations were low but it was the same price of a hostel, so we took it. It is very weird that in 2012 they don't have wifi in the rooms, only hard wired ethernet! The decoration of the outside and downstairs is beautiful and modern. The rooms were OK as far as decoration, but without windows. As far as I could see from peaking at other rooms, no rooms have windows on the side, only a strange hard to reach ceiling window. There was a tiny TV placed in a corner at a low level, hard to watch if you lie in bed. There was a fridge. The smell of smoke unfortunately was everywhere. We asked for a king size bed as shown in expedia as an option but got two beds put together. The beds were good, not soft. The bathrooms were small and the faucett was falling out. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast was good, some fruits, coffee, milk, eggs, only white bread and fried bread, saussage, cheese, cereals, non-natural juice, ham, jam, butter, real honey, a tasty spread, some simple bag waffles and I am probably forgetting something. Coffee was cold and even colder when mixed with the cold milk, but they warmed it up on the microwave at my request on the first day and the second day the girl offered it before I asked. The location is not central but 15 minutes by foot through a nice park to the center and 2 euros by taxi from the train station. Definitely a place that has potential if they only invested in a wifi router a TV stand and a chair with back support for those that want to work on the desk.

    We stayed 2 nights and didn't get the room cleaned, nobody knocked to clean it, perhaps because they knew I was there for a few hours in the afternoon.

    Room Tip: I guess you could email making sure you get a king size bed if they have any, or a room with a window. I doubt it.

    Let's start with the location. Their website tells us that the pension(this joint is hardly a hotel) is located 5 minutes away from the center of the city. 5 minutes by taxi, that is. A walk from Deja Vu Hotel to the Center would take you 40 minutes if you know the city and 20 minutes if you take a bus. The location is pretty secluded, and there is nothing to see in this area.

    Secondly, my husband and I reserved a double room that was described as having a king size bed. The room looked totally different than the one in the photos on the website and the bed wasn't a king size bed, there were two little beds joined together with two separate covers.

    Needless to say, this arrangement wasn't comfortable at all for us, we could barely have some sleep on our first night(we had reserved 4 nights), partly because there was a gap in the middle of the bed(where the two little beds were joined) and because we had to cover ourselves with 2 separate bed covers.

    The next day we asked the receptionist to change our room with the one that was shown in the picture when we were tricked into making reservation by the fake presentation, but she was very cheeky and disrespectful when she told us that we had to pay more if we wanted that room and that the bed we had, was indeed king size, practically calling us stupid. We asked for the manager who didn't want to speak to us at first, but after waiting for her highness for a half an hour on a Sunday afternoon. She was very rude to us, my husband and I said "hello" and introduced ourselves, but she wouldn't acknowledge my presence, like I wasn't there, before even saying anything about our issue. We explained our problem with the room and asked her for the room that was shown in the picture, the one we paid for. The pension was empty by the way, we were the only guests staying there and now I know why.

    Finally, after telling us it is our fault we picked that room and that she is doing us a favor and we should be more careful next time, like there would be a next time.The fault belonged to them because they falsely promote their "hotel". We threatened to call the Romanian consumer protection institution and one minute later, we got what we paid for in the first place.

    The TV screens are tiny, the TV in our first room didn't work at all, the bathrooms are tiny, you have to wait for five minutes for the water to get warm, the little fridge wasn't working either. Also, the service is terrible and the food is stale.

    I would not recommend this place to anyone.

    Room Tip: Don't do it :)

    Having been to Romania before, but never Cluj, we arrived late in the evening and needed a place to stay. The staff here was very accomodating to us although we checked in after their normal business hours. Parking is limited and you need to park along the street, which is fine because the neighborhood is quiet and seems safe.

    Our room was one of the ones without a window. It didn't bother us as there is not much to see outside in this area of town. Overall the room was nicely organized, clean, and even came equipped with an air conditioner and stocked mini bar!

    I have only a few complaints because of the price of the room...The toilet and the sink were not properly attached to the wall/floor and were loose. This was a bit annoying every time I used the toilet as it rattled and shook. Also, the television was small and dated...again, it was fine BUT the remote control was so old I had to hold together the front and back and firmly press down, just to adjust the volume. These may be small things if you are in the room just to sleep. But, if you are spending a few days in Cluj-Napoca you may not want to spend them all here.

    First off, the staff was very helpful and accomodating. The rooms however were just okay. Smoking is allowed in the rooms and they filter into your room. I did not like this at all. There is no lift, so if you have heavy luggage, you will have to take them up the stairs, so be aware of this. The restaurant food quality was fine, but the breakfast was just average. Nothing really special. There is limited parking, but it was sufficient. The hotel is located in a nice, residential area and there is a nice Chinese restaurant up the street that gives a nice view of Cluj-Napoca. Overall, though, I would probably stay at a different location.

    Never having been to Romania before, I was impressed with its history and beautiful castles with friendly people as well.

    A tip for travellers - fly into Cluj-Napoca in the north to see all of the beauty of Transylvania including the very beautiful old part of Sighisoara. A great base when you fly into or out of Cluj is the charming Deja Vu bed and breakfast. Have a look at the exterior photo of the hotel and you'll see how beautiful the construction is. The same is repeated inside as you go up the stairs, and the rooms are spacious and have quiet air conditioning!!! which many Romanian hotels don't have.

    Some rooms have a skylight with block out cover which is novel and effective - this s Romanian style and not a disincentive at all as suggested by a previous reviewer.

    Breakfast is plentiful and fresh with everything from cooked eggs to healthy muesli.

    Thanks to the ladies who run this place who were very accommodating and their English is excellent, which made things easier.
