Illuminating

Posted Nov 20, 2016
We were in Iasi for a wedding and did not have great expectations of a provincial Romanian town. the hotel though a bit tired was perfectly adequate. It is a historic building designed by Eiffel. The town itself was much more sophisticated than expected. The palace of culture is worth a visit as are the churche's. The palas shopping mall is world class and the coffee shops and art galleries along the pedestrianised main street are a treat.

Well located in Centre of City

Posted Nov 20, 2014
Pros: The wonderful 19th Century Style - modernised with taste and attentative staff .
Location: Very central location and many of the beautiful buildings and sight are within walking distance
Whole experience over two days was very good. The bedrooms have been tastefully redecorated with very modern bathrooms and comfortable beds. The Buffet breakfast was quite extensive and well cooked and prepared. When using the Hotel ask for the Private underground parking as the street parking is normally limited.

Overall

Posted Oct 12, 2013
Pros: Staff very pleasant, restaurant very good and service there good too.
Cons: Level of equipment, computer and access to pwer in the rooms needs slight upgrading.
Location: Very central, close to pretty much everything of importance in Iasi.
Generally a very pleasant hotel - especially the restaurant food and service. The rooms would benefit from some degree of modernisation e.g. power points in inaccessible positions. Rooms closer to the street need improvements to the glazing in order to reduce the noise from the trams that start operating very early in the morning.

University reunion

Posted Sep 9, 2013
Pros: Very friendly staff.
Cons: Get a parking spot (at least a 15 min allowance).
Location: This is the best location in Iasi. In London it would be Trafalgar square. It is 10 min walk from the historical part of Iasi (the Trei Ierarhi, etc)
This hotel was built by Gustave Eiffel (unfortunately this is not very visible on the internet page of the hotel, hidden somewhere at a history tab). It has a nice neo-classical architecture Very friendly and professional staff. Large rooms with most modern facilities. Newly renovated bathrooms. Good selection at breakfast (including vegetarian). The hotel was deprived of parking through a decision of the local mayor (probably did not contribute to his election campaign).
