Victoria Hotel Timisoara3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The hotel is centrally located, all major sights are 10 minutes away by foot. The rooms are average but comfortable. But there is a major problem with the noise levels. The walls are thin and you here everything happening in the next room. Additionally, there is a bar downstairs where a lot of people hang out until the early morning. So basically you have drunk people screaming under your window the whole night. The reception does not/cannot do anything about it. For three consecutive nights it was impossible to get any sleep. For this reason I would not recommend to anyone to stay there.
If you want to visit Timisoara, hotel Victoria is a good place to stay because it is literally in the city center. But this also means there is no parking space to reserve or to use in the name of the hotel. You can park on street( where in free from 5pm to 8 am) but in the day time you must send and SMS to pay for the space. There are some large signs explaining the process. The hotel is in an old building, restored. The rooms are large and clean with sparse decoration and furniture. The bathroom is large but that is all. The space is not used properly and the bathtub looks dirty. The staff was not helpful regarding the parking but, as I said , the signs are useful. They offer breakfast but we didn't try it. Everything from restaurants to old buildings to visit are in walking distance so this is the main advantage for staying in hotel Victoria.
This hotel is ideally situated for the city centre (though note, it's on a pedestrian street so a taxi will drop you a one minute walk away). The building and its staircase is grand and old style, though the rooms are plain and a little dated. However, the beds were comfortable, the room clean and the bathroom decent. TV, mini bar, good heating, hot water and aircon. In short, unglamorous but good value.
I stayed in the Hotel Victoria in January 2017. My room was large and comfortable in most ways. There was some visible need for better cleaning. This could be easily attended to. The breakfast was a bit disappointing. Service at the front desk was spotty, mainly since the desk person was also tasked with getting up breakfast and other jobs. I had the impression this hotel was understaffed. It is true, there is no elevator. The building is a really spectacular old building that would really shine with a makeover. The location is as other reviewers have noted: perfect for the city center of Timisoara. Equidistant from Liberty Square and Victoria Square. So, entirely livable, but even with the great location figured in, a fairly weak average.
One of those English guidebooks says, sparingly, that the Victoria Hotel is "... located in a lovely old building with large if fairly bare rooms, but no lift." And I agree. The ceilings must be more than 12 feet high, and the room is massive, with two casement windows to the street. The rooms are kept clean, but the furniture and bathroom decor is utilitarian. The hotel interior has the bones of French elegance...but is crying out for some sprucing up and new carpet... After a $10 million reno, this hotel might be going for $250 a night in three years...but now you can walk up the stairs and pay a fraction of that. Incidentally, on the reports of noise...let me say that the pub door was right below my window. I heard a bit as people were lining up to get in...but didn't hear much if any music once the evening got going, and slept fine.
The hotel is located right in the city center. During out stay they had serious problems with the heating system. We tried 3 rooms before finding one where the heating system would work. In the first room we found some hair between the pillows and the walls were pretty dirty. The hotel needs some serious renovation. The staff was friendly.
Great hotel with beautiful high ceiling rooms. Exactly in Union Square, this is a great choice for those who want to be very close to the city center. The staff is very nice and helpful and the overall experience was great.
A cool old building with a great central location. It was clean. BUT... On Saturday night we got no sleep at all! The bottom floor is a nightclub that played booming, heavy bass, electronic music from midnight until 5am. All night long. We stayed on the 2nd floor. Our beds were shaking, the bathroom was vibrating, it was a nightmare! Also we should note that the shower head holder was broken. Not ideal. Some maintenance needs to be done.
Nice hotel, cool old building, friendly and helpful staff, central location, big clean rooms. Why the low rating you ask? Apparently there is a discotheque on the bottom floor of this building that plays loud music, scratch that, very loud music from midnight to 4 am. My bed was shaking.
Good location in the centre of Temeswar, large rooms, a fading beauty but all is working well. Rooms are spotless. There is no elevator for the luggage though but broad stairs lead to the first floor. The staff is very helpful indeed.
