“Excellent”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

I stayed in this in August 2013 and I had a nice sea view apartment for the price of a regular room.
Very spacious clean apartment, good service, the owner is a nice lady, she offered me an excellent deal.
Excellent location (the best in Vama Veche) just in fron of "Stuf" and right on the beach.
The hotel has his own parking in the back, very important because it’s located in a crowded street.
A lot of restaurants very close.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: No need of A/C as the except if you stay at the last level.

This hotel strong spot is that's situated central. Also this strong point is like Achilles knee because you can't sleep because of the music and noise. Rooms are not so clean and there is no air conditioning. The bath looks ugly and after people come from the beach you have a great chance to run out of warm water.

What can i say i was very satisfied with my leisure at La JOHN probably because i didnt opt for the cheap rooms.Most of the hotel has 3 stars conditions but there is a another part in the attic were the cheap rooms are, but they dont fool you they tell you and show you the room BEFORE you take it, and if you dont like it you can choose another.
Most of all i liked the view it was fantastic no other hotel is so well positioned,i also had a very nice balcony with wooden chairs and table right in front of the sea.
Anyway it worked for me,but if you go try not to take the cheap rooms because the hotel has very good rooms and view.

I've stay to "La John" hotel in Vama Veche village for three days durin August 2008.
Vama Veche and 2 Mai are 2 small villages near Mangalia, in the southern part of the Romania seaside. Usually with 100-150 RON (30-40 EUR) you will have very good conditions in pensions or fammily run small hotels classified as having 3 stars.
A friend of mine did the reservation at "La john" hotel. I've tried to find something about this hotel before going, but i didn't found too much on the internet - only some photos showing the outside of the hotel.
Taking into consideration the price, which was 160 RON per night ( 45 EUR) I've supposed that everything is OK.
When we arrived we found out that our rooms was in the attic, without air condition and having only a small window (something like 40*40 cm). The bathroom window was a little bite larger ( I thing 40*60 cm), but it was not enough for properly ventilate the room.
The walls were painted and looked like they didn't finish the decoration.
The plug was not isolated properly and it hanged out of the wall.
The carpet didn't looked to clean.
In the bathroom, the toilet was cleaned - i suppose, because it had something the a seal, telling that it was disinfected, the shower seem to be clan, but the wash-hand basin was dirty.
In my opinion the conditions were as for a one star hotel, except the fact that the room had its own bathroom. I would say that the condition are OK if you pay 50 RON per night per room(15 EUR)
I do not know if the rooms from the others floors are better, but at least the have large windows and some of them have beautiful see view
