"Lovely hotel, location could be better for business"4/5
After a taxi ride away from the business areas, this hotel is one of the most aesthetically impressive in Cluj. The outside view is impressive, and walking into the extra large reception area, which is clean white white white (did I mention it's white?) keeps up the impressiveness.
The room was a nice quality and size. There was a separate bath and large shower, and a bidet too. The bath had a jacuzzi. The electrics (lights, blind and temperature) in the room are controlled by central touch panels. Most of the rooms have a balcony, and some of them are shared. The blind is an electric metal external roller blind, which makes the room completely dark at any time of the day. Be warned if you easily oversleep!
The overall hotel is clean and tidy. Some areas are very impressive, and some less so - such as the carpet in the lifts and hallways. There's nothing wrong with them, but after such a great first impression, there's only one way to go.
The gym was shut for refurbishment when I stayed at the end of November 2014.
This is a lovely hotel... but it's about 20 minutes from the centre of Cluj. Taxis are very cheap (about €2 each way). If you are short of time like I was, you may wish to find somewhere more central. If you have some time for a taxi though, this is a lovely hotel.

"Good choice for hotel in Cluj"4/5
Nice hotel with spacious grand lobby. Rooms are also spacious and clean with large comfortable bed. Restaurant service is a little slow but the food is good. Breakfast inclusive with the room price and choice is fair. If you want eggs, just ask and they will cook them fresh. During the week the hotel seems relaively quiet but understand at weekends it is a popular venue for weddings and events.
There is a Spa in the hotel and if you like a good massage, the prices are excellent.
