“Above and Beyond”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013

After staying two nights in Oradea at Avalon Rooms with my wife and son we headed to Timisoara by bus. An hour and a half into the bus ride I realized I had left my passport, along with my son's, and a wad of cash in small bag in a nighstand drawer at our room at Avalon. We contacted the manager of Avalon Rooms, then home for the evening, who went immediately to his small hotel and retrieved my bag and its contents. He called me back in ten minutes saying he had it. I told him I would get off the bus at the next stop, get a return bus, and call him when I hit town.

Fifteen minutes later, just as I was about to leave he bus to return, he called me back. He had spoken to the bus driver of the the next bus to my destination and was entrusting it to him. He told me to meet the driver by the train station. I did, and when I did everything was there, including a book I left behind. He saved me up to five hours travel. I can't say enough about this man and his business. It's an extraordinary place who believe in helping their guests in every way. Besides that their business partner, Queen's Pub downt he street, rocks. You should stay there. They typify what we experienced all through Oradea and Transylvania, helpfulness and concern. You can't go wrong.

Room Tip: Tell them what you need and trust them to fill your needs.

This place was a dream. The manager was there every morning helping us out with every question we had. He gave us tips for every aspect of a ski trip, including the car rental, and train/bus schedules when we left town.

The room itself was spacious and very tastefully decorated. It had ample lighting and it felt cozy; we wondered if he hired a decorator.

Absolutely no regrets. We'd love to go back!

Thank you for this positive feedback!

We know that we’re not perfect, but, when tourists leave taking along with them,good and ineffaceable impressions, means, that you have tried your best on it.
If we recall well, you had a rich agenda on your travel in Oradea. It is exactly what we recommend to all our destination tourists: to use Oradea not only for it’s inner beauties and attractions, but also, as a base for day trips to this beautiful area of our country. Words aren’t enough to describe the diversity and uniqueness of this part of Romania; in a radius of 100km around Oradea, you will find ancient history, legends, genuine traditional Romanian living, wide natural parks, ski and spa resorts. Of course, being our guests, you’ll be constantly assisted to your journeys.

Thank you, hope you’ll be our guests again

It's the best choice for a stay in Oradea!

I can offer everybody this place!
We had a great stay here in October 2012 while in Oradea on bike trip. It's a great value: competitive prices for Oradea and a much nicer place to stay than most hotels. The owner, was friendly and helpful and speaks perfect English. The location is great (near to the downtown). The wifi was fast. Everything was clean and new. They have a bike storage - a bike friendly hotel! :-) Recommended.

We are glad that you liked it!
Thanks to our wonderful and attentive clients, our rooms look clean and almost new, even after two years of accommodating tourists. Hope that it will go on like this; anyway, you know the saying “birds of a feather flock together”.
As for the part of the bicycle touring, we and our hotel are very bike friendly, in fact, bicycle travelers will always find at Avalon Rooms, free and safe shelter for their bikes, technical support, and bicycle tracks city maps.

It’s our second stay here. First, was over seven months ago. Same quality and excellent value, same kindness and fluent communication. Stayed in the triple room which is very big and bright and it’s facing the Primariei Street. It is more exposed to street noise than the room that I stayed first, but it’s decently quiet during the night.
It happens often that I use more than once the same hotel, but in many cases, the return is not as pleasant as first, some of them could not keep the up the level. Not the case of Avalon Rooms, so, next year we will be back here…

Room Tip: The triple room is very big, and bright, I think they can easely accommodate 4 people here. It is no...

well, it is over a bar !! but it is wonderful, the owner speaks perfect english and is available by phone from the lady at the bar downstairs at any time. the location is great a few blocks from the center of the town and from there across the bridge to the secession era buildings on republic street. there is a good restaurant nearby - queen's. the rooms are basic and the bathroom is small but it is very cozy and comfortable, the bed was quite large for a single room in a budget european hotel. anyway, this place charms one in its "europe of 50 years ago" feel. but it isn't old in the sense of run down or out of date. all is new and all works and all is spotless. loved it. you must stay here. then go stay in the timisoara in timisoraa for some 4 star life. but this place is great. enjoy.

If we were to describe us in such a few words, we surely, couldn’t do it better than you. We are thrilled to receive feed-back like this one, concise and inspired.
You perfectly captured our personality, the mood, but also the limitations. Nevertheless, as a general consideration, we think that to be open with the limitations and the weaknesses is the preferred attitude:
- it gives you the possibility to improve what can be improved
- brings up to the virtual client’s knowledge, the limitations (e.g. size of the bathroom) , thus, it can be evaluated by each in they’re own way

We would like to accommodate more American clients and to have more American tourists in our beautiful but, somehow, overlooked city, but as the way things are now, this is just one of our main regrets…

Our stay in Oradea was very comfortable mainly due to Avalon Rooms. This little gem close to the centre has a very relaxed atmosphere, it's clean and comfortable, cozy and welcoming and all this at a very attractive rate! The owner was extremely accommodating and very kind. The wi-fi works perfectly. Read the other reviews for more detailed information, but I just wanted to add to the general impression that Avalon is indeed a good place to stay! Highly recommended.

Thank you for your feed-back.

These are indeed, very nice words. We are happy that you have enjoyed your stay, we hope that you had sufficient time at disposal to get a glimpse of the higlights of our beautifull city. Although, AVALON Rooms is not a conventional hotel, we still try to provide general comfort, being non-conventional, sometimes, it really helps. Nevertheless we struggle to keep the prices low, even though our rooms are highly requested, because we think that comfort has a financial part of it.

Thank you again for sharing your thoughts and if we'll host you again, we will do it, with great pleasure!
