Recommended Cluj-napoca Guide
There aren’t many backpacker hostels in the city, but hotel rates are relatively low compared to western standards. Meteor Hotel on Eroilor Boulevard is a reasonably comfortable mid-range hotel with the advantage of being located right in the city centre. The restaurant downstairs serves hearty food in large portions, and it is quite popular with the student crowd. For an amazing view of the city, go to Belvedere Hotel, on top of the Fortress Hill. The hotel has luxury facilities and it is located at a five minutes’ walk from the city centre. If you’re looking for a unique five star hotel, this Cluj Napoca Travel Guide... Read more »
