Continental Hotel

Web info: Our hotel offers you laundry services (chargeable). Room service is available until 11:00 pm. Continental’s parking lot has approximately 30 parking places. Because the safety of our guests is important, our parking lot is permanently guarded. Within the hotel there is also business corner – fax, Xerox, Internet. In summer you can use the terrace of the restaurant and you will enjoy the beautiful panorama of the Roses’ Park.

Leif’s take: The 2-star rooms here are in commendable condition, particularly the bathrooms, while the 3-star rooms are exceptional. Request a room facing the river. The restaurant offers a cheap menu with a shady terrace overlooking the park and river. There’s an outside bar and cafe. Friendly English-speaking staff.

Leif’s take: The bedding is surprisingly clean if you can overlook the infinitesimal size of the rooms and the shared bathrooms. You won’t find anything cheaper in 100 kilometers, but this place will challenge all but the hardest of travelers. There’s no address that I could sleuth. Look for it on the west side of the main square, above Café Ada-Kaleh.

Leif’s take: Their location sucks; 2km northwest of the city center on an unlikely residential side street. However it’s worth the hunt. The rooms are comfortable, there’s a respectable on-site international restaurant and free WiFi. From B-dul Vladiminescu (the main drag, also know as highway E70), heading towards Timisoara, scan the road for their billboard and just follow the signs.
