Hotel Transilvania
Ranked #11 of 57 Hotels in Cluj-Napoca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 September 2017

The hotel is located in an amazing location, set in the heart of Cluj, walking distance from St. Michael's Church, which is the city's main square, behind Sora's shopping centre which has a 24-7 supermarket and money exchange service.

The hotel has a very nice restaurant on what was a long time ago a central patio. The room was comfortable, but has no air conditioning, just heating. The loo window opens to the central hallway, which can be a bit unconfortable.

The toilettries are nice, but not replentished daily, the furniture is functional but dated. The only issue is that the bed is probably the most uncomfortable I've ever slept in, my back was hurting during the entire stay. Also, rooms closer to the street can be very loud as the street is very busy.

Room Tip: Rooms farther back might be quieter.

Stayed there for a night, it's a central location, rooms are clean, bit outdated. Fairly expensive, given I lodged in Budapest centre for less!
I happened to drop one of the glasses in the bathroom and, mentioning it on my check out, the receptionist said he's afraid I had to pay 10 Ron (£2.5) for it. It's not that I mind, it was my fault, but considering the cheap quality of the coarse glass, that I cleaned everything up and apologised, I found it very petty to be charged.

This is not a big fancy hotel but quaint with with many conveniences. Don't always go by your first impressions. As a solo female traveler it met many of my needs. It is about a block and a half to the main square. The evening I arrived there was a cultural festival on in the square - music, dancers, a market - very entertaining. I didn't feel uncomfortable walking back to the hotel at a late hour The hotel could use some updating but it has a very pleasant enclosed terrace where you can relax with a drink, have breakfast or dinner. Just 2 streets over from the front entrance is a lively
pedestrian only area of restaurants with terraces. From the hotel it is a 5 minute walk to the ancient Franciscan monastery, or an 8 minute walk to the indoor market. Directly beside the hotel is a very posh shopping centre that also has a grocery and many prepared foods.
Breakfast at the hotel has a good variety - scrambled eggs, sausage, ham, cheeses, salad items, stuffed mushrooms etc. The rooms are a bit dated but this is Romania and they are trying very hard and doing a good job trying to please tourists. The bed was comfy and the sheets good. The reception staff are very kind. The taxi to the airport for an early morning flight was 24 lei + tip

Room Tip: No elevators to get to 2nd floor. Windows face courtyard.

We were recommended to stay in this hotel by a friend who lives in Cluj, and we were not disappointed. The rooms are of a high standard for the money, the staff were friendly and helpful, with the reception staffed 24 hours a day, and the courtyard restaurant/bar was a very nice place to meet people and to rest - it has shade for the whole day which is very good in the summer.

The hotel is very centrally located, and well placed for bus lines. This is also a slight caveat to the review - due to the central location there is quite a lot of traffic noise, but that's to be expected given how close to the centre the hotel is.

I didn't eat dinner at the hotel, but breakfast was very good with a selection of continental, english-style, and local dishes, and I understand that the evening menu is to a similar standard.

If I were to return to Cluj I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel and on the ground floor will be quite noisy.

Very comfortable hotel . Room was clean and did the job . There is a fridge and hairdryer . Nothing to really complain about the room .
The staff were all very friendly.
My only criticism is the breakfast , which was average at best . It seemed as if everything was put first thing and just left . On the first two days we went for breakfast at 9.00 , on the first day the egg was a little stale , on the second it had run out and was not replaced . On the same day , the tea and coffee had run out by 9 and was not refilled
