Reviewed 10 June 2013

I had a reservation for 2 nights but after the first night we left and we went to another hotel. The carpet on the room floor was dirty and sticky, there were hair and cigarrette burns on the pillow. The breakfast is pretty good but the serving in restaurant is terrible.

My greatest problem was the smell in the hall and in the room. it was a stinging smell like in very old houses. The furniture was also very old, probably that is the source of the smell.
Breakfast was good, no complaints.
By the way, all the pictures on their websites are from the 4* rooms, even for the 3* rooms.

Room Tip: ask for the 4* rooms

I stayed for one night and would certainly recommend to AVOID the 3* part of this hotel. I don't know about the 4*. The elevator is only available to the 4 star guests, so you have to get up the stairs. The room was very small, very bad lighting in the room, the TV was an old Panasonic CRT that only had half of the remote working (for example the power button didn't work) and although they had cable, only 5-6 TV stations were clear enough to actually see something, ugly minibar with no cooling whatsoever (the fridge didn't work), the bathroom had only one light which made viewing in the mirror or showering almost impossible, flushing the toilet was so noisy that probably half the hotel heard when I did it, the shower wasn't very clean. The bed sheets were stained (blood?) and the noise from the traffic outside the hotel was easy to hear, although the hotel isn't on a large boulevard.
The breakfast was of low, maybe medium quality with really not a lot to choose from. The reception was OK, although there was a new girl working there, she was OK and really seemed to take interest. Too bad the hotel didn't live up to her.
I guess the only improvements to this hotel are the air conditioning in the room and access by card in the room (at least my room had this).

Room Tip: I stayed in 117 but I guess all other rooms were as bad as this one...

I made the mistake of staying in Hotel Onix 2 times now, the last time in Sept 2010, firstly the receptionist was unfriendly (was like I was disturbing her), the heating wasn't working and the wireless internet wasn't working. The first time I was there it was noisy too as there is a strip club underneath the hotel.

The hotel is not far away from the city center. The staff were very nice and polite. The rooms was large enough but not very clean. There is a problem with the sound in the night if your room is on nightclub's side. The breakfast was simple but fine.

The Hotel price is a little above the average for the town but for business traveller is a good deal. The hotel has two kind of rooms: 4* and 3*. For business traveller I reccomend 4* as the ratio price/quality is good. Free Internet available in the 4* rooms both with cable and wifi. Good Internet speed and quality. The are very convenient apartments (two rooms) where (one room with matrimonial room and one living). The furniture is not realy modern, a little traditional, but in order and in good shape. An important thing that I would notice is that you can really sleep well: unfortunately there are in Cluj hotels where is impossible to sleep as some major streets in the center are busy of very noisy traffic of tracks all the night. The othel has a resturant (also open in terrace in spring/summer) and night club. I do reasly reccomend this hotel for business traveler.

We happened upon this hotel as a one night stop before an early flight from Cluj airport.
I wish we had looked further.
The firsts room we were given had no working light in the bathroom, the curtains would not close and the curtain rail was hanging off the wall. The general apperance was a bit grim [would have suited a £20 a night room].
I asked at reception if this could be sorted out and was simply dismissed. When I persisted, I was given [ungraciously] another room. this was at least working properly.
The restaurant however was good - if a bit expensive.
I would not stay here again.
