I stayed in this hotel 20 years ago and it was pretty awful then. But not having stayed there on any subsequent trips, I decided to forgive that long ago bad experience and give them another try. At least the exterior had had a major facelift some time in the 20 years, so I figured I would give it a try. Bad idea. The exterior makeover was just lipstick on a pig.
Where to start... The balconies are not private, but just separated by a very short wall that a person can easily step over. That's not climb, just step. That really wouldn't have bothered me if it weren't for the fact that our door out to the balcony wouldn't even shut properly, much less lock. Beds and linens were questionable at best. The bathroom was downright awful. The toilet looked like it was last cleaned sometime in the 90's, the shower fixtures were rusty, the light over the sink didn't work, and the floor was wet. Or maybe I should say that the floor stayed wet. I don't know where the water was coming from, but the mat on the floor stayed squishy. All that for €88 per night.
The only thing good I have to say is that there was one lady at the desk that was very helpful to us. She didn't speak English, but with my pidgin Romanian and some hand signals, we were able to communicate. But she was the only bright spot in the place. I definitely won't be staying there again.
