4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We are on 22 days tour of Europe and visited Romania in last leg of our tour. On the way back from Sibiu, we stayed here to catch next day flight to New Delhi. During this trip we stayed at 11 hotels and had the worst experience here. Building - Impressive, Front Desk Staff - Polite and Helpful Room - Dirty, carpet dirty, chairs dirty, smell in room and overall impression is bad. May be it was a business district, noise in late night in corridor and in other rooms. It was most disturbing night we had. Recommendation - NO

This hotel could be awesome but it's not, the main reason beeing the dirt which can be seen all over: carpet need to be replaced immediately, it is stuffed with dirt and flies, dead insects, hair from previous guests and stains of anything you could think of, from water infiltrated from the bathroom to wine, all kind of liquids were poured here and there. The room was never vacuumed as I stayed into hotel (3 days) and never heard the sound of any vacuum into any other room, during my stay. I was simply horrified to find, in the very first night, that the carpet was filled with flies, one I could catch and kill, from my slippers. The bed had a pretty new mattress but the cover of it was dirty and full of stains, hair, etc. Sheets were clean and pillow, blanket, also clean and pretty new. All three armchairs in the room were covered with an unfriendly, rough material, which was old, discolored and dirty, and under the cushions you can easily find pieces of food, hair, dust and dead insects. Bathroom had an annoying, unpleasant smell, the drain from the sink was clogged, and the outdated tub was craked on side, also the cheap shower head, water spreading all over from it.The towels were clean and new, but only the small ones, the big ones were in very bad condition, looking grey and torn up. They invest in buying scented toilet paper instead of towels or quality apliances for bathroom. The room was also noisy, facing a big boulevard, crossed by cars all night long. Seems like the windows were not isolating enough. At breakfast, nothing fancy, just an average to poor breakfast with bad coffee and the room itself looking old and outdated. If I am telling all this because this hotel is rated 4 stars and the price for the room is pretty high, comparing with other 4 stars hotel, which are at least clean. I would downgrade this hotel to two-stars or, as a manager, I would take urgent measure to improve the general aspect and mostly the cleaning.The stained and dirty carpet is the etiquette for this hotel. Never come again, thanks. Need no answer from the management, just take best measure for your bussines if that is important to you.

I am not sure what to think. The toilet needed to be flushed, my room smells like cheap perfume mixed with stale cigarettes. The carpet is dirty and seems to have survived many libations. The bath/shower combo has a leak. But the sheets were clean and mini fridge is stocked. Breakfast is decent for a hotel spread that is included. The staff is very accommodating.

We came here after our wedding party and received a free upgrade. Wonderful surprise! The room was clean, spacious and quiet. The bed was very confortable and we were glad to have a nice bathtub too. Overall a very nice time.

Not recommended for people who want to receive a 4 stars room. Like the name, the time have past over the hotel. Almost a 2 stars hotel. You can find betters hotels in the area. Very disappointing. We will never come back.

I was there with my family. At first we were considering going to appartment but then we changed our mind. I'm glad we did. This is a really good hotel, very clean, and the staff was very friendly and helpful to us. It's on a good location and it's kids friendly.

After staying at the ramada plaza, a splendid 4 star hotel in sector 1, we decided to book another 4 star hotel called the Golden Tulip Times. It was a total disaster. No facilities as a swimming pool, spa or fitness. The room had a weird smell and didnt isolate noises from the outside. The bathroom was really unbelievable dirty, not to mention the breakfast with cold english breakfast and awful eggs. A hard boiled egg is impossible and you even have to ask for water! Can someone explain me how this hellhole got 4 stars????? For people who can still laugh after this experience, you can also buy a towel as a souvenir for 30 euros!

Booked in for 7 nights, room big but bed and pillows so uncomfortable, carpet covered in stains which is very off putting, they did offer to put me in another room but told me it would be very noisy because of the bar so I stayed put. My room was never vacuumed. Breakfast was very poor, on check out they told me I could have ordered off an Al a Carte menu, one waitress at breakfast who never interacted or acknowledged me. On day 4 I moved to another hotel. 4* it is definitely not...

It was my second stay there. That time I had a room with a beautiful view through the window wall, previously chosen room was small and dark. Restaurant offers good choose of meals; however, it is overcrowded in the morning

Good ratio of location, price and accommodation. Near to subway. If you like a walk then the old city is in walking distance. Spacious rooms, clean, nice bed and good sitting area. Airco works well. Shower a bit small. Staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a safe, quiet and relaxing stay.
