Victoria Hotel

Web info: This 4 story 3-star hotel boasts 67 well-designed guestrooms. Every room in the hotel offers guests television, mini bar. Other features at the hotel include laundry service/dry cleaning, restaurant, room service, tours, business center.

Leif’s take: This 1986 hotel aims for modern fussiness, with fluffy, sparkling-gold fabrics, though with only OK beds and plain furnishing, it ultimately it feels like you’re paying for location. Some rooms have mini step-out balconies to watch the boulevard buzz by.

Leif’s take: This is a colorful place with rather basic modern furnishings. Six of the 35 rooms have wall-of-glass windows and air-con. Back rooms, away from the busy street, are significantly quieter. It’s a 10-minute walk from the center.

Retro Hostel

Leif’s take: On a quiet lane amidst 16th-century citadel wall fragments, the happy, superbly run Retro is one of Romania’s best hostels. The larger dorms are a bit tight, but colourful with gold walls, moonlight windows and sunshiny bedspreads and the privates are a good value. The chatty and tirelessly helpful staff offer maps and good-value day trips.

Transylvania Hostel

Leif’s take: The leafy inner courtyard is prime end-of-day, cruisy, drinking territory. Even without the copiously consumed alcohol, this centrally located, 50-bed place is disarmingly welcoming, with all the next-gen hostel attributes: PCs, wi-fi, home theatre, large self-cater kitchen and combo sauna/massage showers inspired by Star Trek. The privates feel a bit overpriced.
