We stayed in a nice river-view room at the 4th floor.The room was small for a 4 stars hotel with little space for the clothes but nicely furnished.
I was dissapointed about the quality of the towels( old, small and very thin). I also think they should improuve their cleaning.
We had to pay extra-money for the parking place.
The breakfast area was nice and clean and the food was tasty with lots of choices.
We didn't use the pool because it was dirty :(

Dear Luminita, thank you for your review. We are happy to see that you enjoyed your room and the breakfast. Regarding the pool and towels we will check to see why the pool and towels were dirty. The parking space has to be extra charged because it is not our hotel's parking place. Thank you very much for your time. We wish to have you back as our guest. Have a nice week!

So we arrived and all was ok, in the room, the heating appliance is hard to use, the blowdryer was broke and with the whire cut so if you got out of the shower and put the wet hand on it you could...well...let's noy say die.
Told the lady at reception, she said that till tomorrow no one can fix it, next day someone fixed the cable, the blowdryer still broke, they couldn't give us a portable one.
Breakfast was ok, good food
No bathrobes in our room, had to ask for those as well.
I wouldn't recommend it.

A four star hotel. A Continental. Even has a pool. Yay!!!

It's got a fantastic reception area, looks the part. This is going to be a good stay. I mean, it has a pool and everything. So much so, reception say "we have a pool you can use during your stay"

So, to the room. Well, space wise, it's ok. But this is a four star, you'd expect maybe a complimentary bottle of water, or some drink making facilities, or some toiletries in the bathroom, or a minibar.... we got none of these.

But its ok..... its got a pool.

We did however get wallpaper that was coming off the walls, a dirty bathroom with a stained sink and bath, a shower that didn't work and the toilet paper rammed into the radiator.

But its ok..... its got a pool.

The shower was fixed pretty quickly by a man who popped into the room next door, took a bit from the shower there, did what needed to be done, and left. And left the door open.

But its ok..... its got a pool.

Next we have the wifi. Best described as intermittent, worse described as useless. No rhyme nor reason as to when it works and when it doesn't. Works in bedroom sometimes. Works in the breakfast area sometimes. Works in reception sometimes. Bizarrely, works in the corner shop about 100 metres up the road. But sometimes it doesn't work.

But its ok..... its got a pool.

Breakfast is an interesting affair. A toaster that has slots too small for any bread available. Rolls that were probably fresh, once. A coffee machine that gives you half a cup of coffee. The fried eggs were good though. Could have done without the Romanian folk dancers, dancing very loudly at 8am.....

But its ok..... its got a pool.

So, anyway, its around 30 degrees and we've had a long afternoon exploring. So its time for a dip in the pool. Whilst the rest of the hotel hasn't been up to scratch, it does have a pool and we are going to use. So, we get into our swimming gear and excitedly head down to the pool. Only to find a locked door, which leads to an empty swimming pool shape in the ground.

When questioned, reception said "it is being cleaned". So not "we have a pool you can use during your stay". We can't have a sauna either, because they need an hour's notice.

This isn't a four star hotel, and its a long, long way off being one. Pool or not.

And the really sad thing is, Oradea is a fantastic, beautiful, friendly city.

I just to point out the negatives...
1.The worst towels I found in a hotel room, from all the hotels I stayed in Romania and in many contries around Europe. They are so cheap and thin, that you could think you're using a dust cloth. And they are small, even the big ones. I hope they are cleaned properly, at least...
2.the noise cancelation of the door in nonexistent. You hear everyone passing by. We were awaked a few times during the night because of talking in the corridor.
3.the quilt on the bed is very small; in a matrimonial bed, it can't proper cover 2 people. The pillows are very thin... but that's a standard in this country.
4.the wordrobe is... i realy don't know if you can call it that. It can hold your jacket, your luggage and your shoes. No room for your clotes.
5.the bathroom... omg who were the plumbers? The wc is under/near the radiator, so you sit on your throne with towels on your head, and your legs on the radiator. Aweful. There is a glass wall on the bathtub, but is useless because of the design and size.
6.the breakfast is OK as variety, but delivered in small quantities. At 8-9 am, when many comes to eat, everything goes fast, and the cooks can't keep up.
Final... the guy at the reception desk is not the wellcoming type.

Good location (close to the city centre). Rooms are really outdated. We had suncream stains on the towels. It’s also quite noisy even with the window closed it’s a continious flood of noise and sirenes. The shower was leaking which caused a flood in the bathroom.

Dear guest, thank you very much for this review. We took into account all the details you provided us. Our room's design try to keep the tradition that our hotel has been proud with for more than 27 years, but with freshness (thus, the hotel has been improved this year). Also, we assume that you had a street side room. Maybe next time we could offer you a river side room? We are waiting you to come back to us. Have a great week! Team Continental Forum Oradea
