This is not your typical hotel. There are no services and half of the public areas appear closed. It looks like a once-up-a-time great hotel in decline.

The reception desk is behind security glass and the service is gruff.

Rooms are clean but generally outdated. Even the renovated rooms. If you are on a higher floor, plan to run the hot water for 15 to 20 minutes before you shower.

Breakfast is included and is all a la carte. Don't expect gourmet breakfast delights. Other than breakfast, there were no food & beverage facilities in the hotel. What is amusing at breakfast, because I couldn't understand the Romanian language "Today Show" on the TV, I watched the table in the corner of the dining room near the bar and kitchen entrance. It would always have 3 or 4 ...I assume... employees, stopping in for a coffee and a smoke. By the end of my breakfast, I could not see that table for the cigarette smoke. And the conversation was always loud, and animated and at times so emotional it was jarring. Just hilarious, (read lack of supervision), behaviour for a hotel that is about to...apparently...double its rates to compete with another hotel, The Belvedere, down the street.

The physical plant, (the building and its location), has great potential but even at under 10% occupancy low season rates of about US$40. I felt like I was being gouged.

An example of decline. The lobby ground floor is all windows to the outdoors. But it looks like someone stole the drapes so management replaced the drapes with badly-hung net curtains; too long, not wide enough and cheap.
