    Fabulous

    The central location and ease of parking was important to me. Good size of bedroom, excellent shower and air conditioing easy to adjust. The leisure facilities are very well equipped and available at an additional charge of about £5 - Staff all very helpful and friendly

    The Lobby is a large cold area with no real atmosphere. The bar area in one side of the enormous lobby was empty throughout my 3 day stay and consequently residents generally went out to socialise. Breakfast buffet was basic - the orange juice and coffee was disappointing. Wi Fi in the lobby but no internet terminal available in the hotel.

    Location- downtown. The room is refurbished

    The main lobby decoration; downstairs restaurant (I choose not to take the meal there because of the atmosphere- empty and... Can be much more better for sure)

    Location is very central ..shopping restaurants heritage buildings ..one feed back ..the hotel can be much improved by apointing hotel furniture and design specialist and utility (hotel) specialist(designer)..in case further improvement is in mind..staff and service is perfect..(the most important)..mustaq

    The t.v sets are out dated ..the tiles or marble is not (warm) in experience..

    Fabulous

    Excellent location. Room had nice view and an outside deck. Restaurant was very good. I found the female staff members on front desk and restaurant to be very helpful. The male staff members were less helpful. However every request I made was fullfilled 100%, it was just that the female staff acted as they were delighted to help, the male staff were less friendly. I would recommend this hotel and I would stay there again.

    Room diesign is poor. LAN cord for laptop was about 12 cm long, making it impossible to sit at the desk and use my laptop. There was only one tiny trash container. Phones were at bed and in bathroom, but not on desk. So you could not sit at desk and use laptop or use phone. Very poor design.

    Good

    Hotel room , swimming pool and sauna are really ok. Only a 5 star ranking is too much due to Romanian star rating. You have to be aware of this. Staff is friendly and helpfull but only if you ask them. Breakfast is Ok but not excellent.

    On our arrival, staff were very helpful in sorting out a booking error on my part. One member of staff in particular was very helpful with us at breakfast with the small baby that we had with us. Rooms were clean and regularly serviced.

    Bar closed at approx 1015pm most nights and we were told that we had to use room service. Entry into the spa was approx 8 euros per person per visit - we complained (along with other guests) on a number of occasions about this cost - there is no mention of this on the web site or in any of the hotel literature and I find this disingenuous - having a pool was the main reason we chose this over other higher rated hotels - really disappointing. As we had a small baby with us, we got little help in finding a supply of clean hot water to make up a night bottle - again we made complaints but these fell on deaf ears. A real shame that there is little indication of good service culture at the hotel and that there is a lack of transparency in extra costs.

    Good spa - big pool, water at 29 degrees, sauna, hamam, big room, great location

    The breakfast is a disaster for a five star hotel, it would be still unsatisfactory at a three stars!! The spa entrance requires an extra fee!

    The location is great. The rooms can offer nice panorama over the city.

    The breakfast was bad.

    Guest rating

    The location in Brasov is hard to beat.

    The staff still seems stuck with the old "communist-thinking". Let's gouge the guest for every dime, instead of let's make the guest's stay pleasant. They were so annoying on several occasions during our stay, that unless there's a change of management, we'll never go back. One of the reception people actually had us go up and re-book the room on our computer instead of simply just adding a day while at reception (a classic example of not being helpful and accommodating). By contrast as I type this, the Radisson Blu in Bucharest is a great hotel. Well run, courteous staff and very helpful and accommodating. A hotel like this would absolutely clobber the Aro Palace - they need a good strong competitor in the worst way.
