“Great value for the money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

It is a very well located hotel, right in the heart of Timisoara. It has pretty small rooms and the bed just fits two adults and the mattress was uncomfortable (see very used). The hotel doesn't have its own parking and you have to pay for it (1 euro per hour, on weekdays, until 5 PM). Great view if you choose a room overlooking the castle. Good soundproofing. Clean. The bathroom has a bathtub. Rich enough breakfast, you can choose from. The breakfast is also served fast. Air conditioning. A small fridge can be found in the room but it is kind of watery inside. Dubious wardrobe. Free wi-fi is provided. All in all, great value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a castle view

Excellent location, good price, helpful staff, comfortable bed, spacious room, seems that this is an amazing deal in the city center. In fact, toilet in rooms were unbelievably terrible. There was strong unpleasant smell in the toilet of the room given to us. We found that there were also a few water stains on the floor and thought that the room was just not cleaned thoroughly. However, we later discovered that the smell came out from the drain on the floor every time when we flashed. There are also some water leak out from the bottom of the toilet bowl and that made the stains on the floor. The staff was friendly and had our room changed but the problem didn't vanish. The toilet still leaked and we still smelled a little of it though much better. It is disgusting and unhygienic. The problem wasn't a single incident so I assumed that the drain system of the hotel was lack of maintenance and the problem will most likely persist and deteriorate.

We hosted a party in August 2013 at this hotel, also stayed there for a night. Good administration. Staff treats you wonderfully. I don't have enough thanks to our hostess Ms. Agnes who provided us with a great package and pampered all our needs. They serve a great espresso !!! Room was clean and the interior design was stunningly elegant. Loved that all furniture was new. Also the pure white cotton sheets, the lighting, the fancy bathroom these are far beyond the 2 star. I was not sure what to expect from a 2 star hotel and I found much more than the 3 star hotels at the Niagara have to offer. Solid brick walls provide the privacy you won't find easily in hotels across America. A very nice experience all in one. This hotel has history from the communist period therefore the solid and simple architecture of the place.You are at walking minutes distance from the central fountain, "La Lupa Romana", the Orthodox Cathedral,the Romanian Revolution square with beautiful Monarchical buildings still carrying the wounds of the machineguns. A mix of many types of blood, that city is alive, like Rome, New York or Monaco. A must have experience.

Room Tip: Ask for Ms Agnes and she will help.

Central Hotel is located in one of the most important area of the city. If you want to go shopping or grab something to eat you can just go downstairs and there is "Piata Operei" with everything you want. The price is right for the services you will get,but there is only one downside. This hotel has a parking lot but everyone can park there , so when the city is in it's rush hour, you won't find any parking space.

I booked this hotel for one night (180 Lei, including breakfast and all taxes, about $56) in September, 2013. I wanted a hotel within easy walking distance of the train station for Timisoara and close to restaurants. We were very pleased. The walk from the station was a bit longer than my wife would have preferred, pulling her carryon (about one mile), but the ATM at the station would not accept my card, so there was no way to get some Romanian currency for a taxi (and there are bad reports about taxis at that location). However, the hotel was easy to find and just a short block off the Victory Square. The desk staff were efficient and helpful, and we found our room to be clean and comfortable. It was such a pleasant location, making it easy to walk to local restaurants and to stroll around the magnificent square. Breakfast was a generous buffet, and the hotel staff secured a taxi to the airport where we picked up our rental car. I would be happy to stay at this hotel again. The only reason my rating is a 4 instead of a 5 is that I would like to have more options for blankets. The featherbed dubet (sp?) is much too warm, and it was too cool to sleep uncovered.

central hotel is in the heart of Timisoara. it's a big, clean and confortable hotel. the guy of the staff was very kind (and he spoke perfectly italian), price was cheap, breakfast was very rich. the only bad things were the door of the bathroom (not a real door) and noise from the near room.

Very good located at the heart of the interesting town of Timisoara. I arrived there very late at night after a long driving and the hotel was an oasis for me. Very clean and the personnel was very helpful. For 2 star hotel (worth 3 stars) is a very good choice for those who are seeking a place to stay in order to explore Timisoara. Has all the facilities, good breakfast and free parking at the front of the hotel although is at the middle of the city's touristic centre. I recommend this hotel because has very good value for money rate.
