I stayed at Hotel Helin Central for two nights, during the weekend. It's wonderfully placed, within walking distance of the city centre, which has been recently revamped and looks quite nice. There are plenty of options regarding cafes, restaurants, and clubs.

The rooms are quite large and comfortable, a bit too heavily decorated with a lot of gold coloured ornaments that give the whole place a vaguely Turkish medieval appearance. Beds are on the soft side, something that I personally enjoy. Bathrooms are alright.

The biggest disadvantage here is that, if you come by car, the hotel has zero parking spaces and the nearest one that is free is about a km further up the road. There are paid parking places in the vicinity of the hotel, but they charge a lot by the hour (by Romanian standards).

My room had a view towards the back of the hotel and I can't say I was thrilled with it. All I saw was a very old and a garden with a VERY loud and talkative turkey.

I strongly adivse against having breakfast at the hotel, even if it is included in the price of the room. The restaurant is in the basement, has absolutely no windows, the air is kind of stale, and the breakfast buffet doesn't give you very many options. There are plenty of places to try very near.

The hotel staff are nice and friendly.

Room Tip: A very loud turkey that you will hear if you get a room facing the back of the hotel.

Helin Central offers exactly what it advertises. Even the room pictures are accurate. Elegant interior, very clean and attention to details. Our room was huge (it included a sofa as well) yet the bathroom was on the small side (there was certain cooking smell in the bathroom, probably traveling from the downstairs pub, but this was not a problem for us). Excellent assortment of food in the morning and great coffee (espresso, latte, cappuccino). Warm croissants and buns were also very tasty. Location is perfect, close to great cafes and restaurants. Warmly recommend this hotel!

We only stayed here for two nights but we liked it so much. The hotel is very well located,next to the Theater,the University, a shopping centre,minimarket. It's cozy, very well decorated,the room we stayed in was spacious and clean, the staff-very friendly. The breakfast is average still enough to choose from. The only downside is that there's no parking space so be prepared to pay quite an extra amount of money if you bring your car(from what I understood there are 2 options and we ended up choosing the more expensive one because it was closer to the hotel- 24€/day)..Overall we really enjoyed staying here and we totally recommend it!

This is a affordable, clean and nice hotel. With friendly staff and in a good area of Craiova city, this place offer quiet rooms, and it could be a great choice for one or a couple of nights. Hotel does not have their free parking place and you could only park your car in front of the hotel, with 0,5 euro per hour, or you could search for a free parking place at 200m far away.

Very nice hotel in the center of the town. Very big room and great staff, very nice and helpful.
The hotel is located in the center and the area is very nice and crowded ( in a good way), but parking might be an issue. No parking lot and takes a while to find a parking in the street and not always near by.
