Four stars

Vulturul Negru Hotel

Web info: To make each guest’s stay comfortable, all rooms feature non smoking rooms, air conditioning, television, bathtub, shower. Room service 24hr, executive floor, elevator, bar/pub, laundry service/dry cleaning are some of the extra comforts you’ll find at this Oradea hotel.

Leif’s take: Yet another victim of the country-wide trend to turn all busy and profitable budget hotels into elegant four star properties with three guests. Sigh. That said, every nook of this 1908 Art Nouveau building has been beautified with stained-glass windows, crystal chandeliers and Italian decor. Whether you’re a guest or not, the glass-ceilinged day bar should be visited for a cup of coffee and 30 minutes of sheer elegance.

Continental Hotel

Web info: The Continental Hotel is convenient to everything Oradea has to offer, and is only 5 km (3 miles) away from Oradea International Airport. Whether on business or holiday, each of the 141 rooms at this 4-star property are designed help guests relax in comfort and style. Every room in the hotel offers guests air conditioning. The hotel provides superior recreational and leisure facilities including gym/fitness facilities, sauna.

Leif’s take: Part of the Continental chain, this is a modern and comfortable nine-story business hotel with thermal pool, masseur, nightclub. The shockingly blue interiors may be a bit ocularly overwhelming for some, otherwise, it’s a great place.

Three stars

Eden Hotel

Web info: Guests will find all of the finest amenities in each of the 18 rooms in this popular 3-star hotel. Featured in each room, among other amenities, are non smoking rooms, air conditioning, television, shower, mini bar. Featuring room service 24hr, bar/pub, laundry service/dry cleaning, restaurant, room service, business center, this Oradea hotel is sure to make each guest’s trip an enjoyable one.

Leif’s take: Somewhat north of the city center, hence action. Though you may appreciate the relative peace of the location.

Pension Recidency Hotel

Web info: All rooms have non smoking rooms, television, bathtub, shower, mini bar, balcony/terrace as well as other amenities. This excellent hotel in Oradea also has room service 24hr, casino, business center, pets allowed.

Leif’s take: Excellent location, just off the main square.

Two stars

Web info: Featured in each room, among other amenities, are non smoking rooms, television, bathtub, shower, balcony/terrace. The hotel boasts room service 24hr, bar/pub, restaurant, business center, pets allowed as part of its superior facilities and services.

Leif’s take: Near enough to the main square and just across from a park.

Hostels

Oradea Hostel

Web info: Our clean and friendly hostel is located in the very centre of Oradea just a few steps from the main sights. In 200 m distance from the Hostel you can find: restaurant, change, pub, disco, winery, movie. We’re ready to welcome you 24/7.

Leif’s take: This unmarked and nondescript building actually houses a likable 20-bed hostel. About 400 meters from Piata Unirii, it’s not dead-center, but close enough. There’s no breakfast served, but there’s free internet, free laundry, a self-cater kitchen, and a large celler bar with a common room, foosball, TV, cheap wine (!) and beer. When I last visited, they were transforming the inner courtyard into a nightly meeting/party place for local students.

Etc.

Hotel Parc
Tel. +40 (0) 259 411 699
Calea Republicii 5-7
Behind the uninviting facade and dodgy reception area, are worn, but large, classic, reasonably clean rooms. Some have a balcony. It’s worth the money to get a room with a toilet.

Pension Gobe
Tel +40 (0) 259 414 845
Str Dobrogeanu Gherea 26
This is a family owned pension, with a few charming rooms, a small restaurant, and a bar. The downside is that it’s a bit of a hike from the center.
