Worst stay in my 29 years of lifePosted Dec 27, 2014 on Hotels
We arrived at the hotel at about 23:40. We had to carry our luggage on the stairs since there is no path for people with disabilities. The guy at the reception was laid on a couch in the lobby the moment we entered. Anyway, we received the key, literally a key, and we went to our room. When we entered the room, the first reaction was to change the hotel, but it was very late. A very dirty bathroom, bathtub had wet rust on it, the walls were dirty and in some places broken, my grandmother had a tv like the one in the room, and the bed sheets were not clean. The second day at breakfast they said we had no breakfast, although our reservation was clearly with breakfast, so they gave us "from the house" the worst croissant ever. When we had to pay, they wanted to extra charge us, on the reason that there was a mistake with our booking price. Did not pay the extra amount, and I told them it is the first and the last time ever when we visit them. Take our advice, never choose this hotel, there are other better ones.

basic hotel with a convenient locationPosted Nov 24, 2011
Location: In my opinion, if you travel to Romania, do not focus on Bucuresti. I believe that the city is not that interesting and that you will not get a true insight into Romania if you stay only in Bucuresti. Be brave-- take a bus or a train to some other cities. Bus and train travel in Romania is very inexpensive. What an experience it is to ride a minibus in the Romanian countryside and to see "normal" Romanians.
If you are a fiscally responsible person who is staying in Bucuresti for a short period of time and who will be traveling to other areas of Romania by train or bus, Elizeu is an excellent choice. Gara de Nord, with trains and the metro, is a few blocks away. In the other direction, there is a bus station with buses going to many Romanian cities. Moreover, the airport train goes to Gara de Nord; thus, getting to and from the airport is very easy. The hotel is very basic with no luxuries. However, it is clearly worth the 45 to 50 euros. The breakfast, which is included in the room rate, is acceptable. The staff is helpful and friendly. Request a room in the front of the hotel because there is a dog outside an adjacent house in the back who does bark almost constantly. If you are staying in Bucuresti a few days, want a convenient location, and want to be frugal, then this is the hotel for you.

I recommend itPosted May 24, 2011
Near the train station, in a quiet area, near banks and other facilities, near the metro, so, if you need a quiet place to visit Bucuresti and or to be in transit before visiting an other part of Romania, it is a confortable hotel.

Use this hotel only if you have to take a train very early in the morning as it it is located not so far from "Gara do Nord"

"The worst part had to be the mattresses."Posted Nov 17, 2009
Good location for convenience to train station (5-10 minute walk, and we rolled our suitcases the whole way), but being near the train station automatically puts it in a fairly seedy part of town. We did not feel unsafe. Very bad mattresses, dusty, dated decor/ good breakfast, though. Better to stay in another part of town if possible, but then you must deal with a taxi or public transport--not fun when you are arriving late or are jet-lagged. Enough English spoken to get by. OK for 1 night budget stay if you know you are moving on to better places for the rest of your trip. The hotel website makes the rooms look nicer than they are in real life.

A convenient base but nothing morePosted Jun 25, 2007
This Hotel is not a particularly nice area of Bucharest and is quite noisy, but then nice areas in Bucharest are pretty hard to come by. It is however very conveniently located, particularly for train travel as it is right next to the Gara de Nord, Bucharest's main station. The hotel itself is ok but is a little run down and could be cleaner. It is in need of some repair. For example the air conditioning unit in our room was effective in cooling the room but leaked constantly and soaked the carpet. This then created a rather unpleasant damp smell. The staff at the hotel were on the whole helpful and friendly although some struggled with English.
