I stayed at Hotel Helin a few years ago. It was one of the best hotels in Craiova. Now I was amazed the room was not at all cleaned. Dirt on the carpet. The Mini bar refrigerator did such a noise I had to unplug it. I was disappointed.

The hotel is located on the main road between downtown and the city airport. It is in front of the main city commercial mall. It is a new building with good furniture in the rooms. The wifi is pretty good and works in all the places. In the restaurant several traditional and international dishes are available. The personnel is nice...

The room didn't look very clean, the toilet was broken and I had to close the water so it didn't flow through the night, the elevator doesn't show which floor you're at. The breakfast was mediocre and the water was just undrinkable.

We were on a business trip recently. The hotel has two types of rooms. The large ones with panoramic windows are nice, the small ones are not that much. The lighting is awful since they have only coloured lamps in the room. Really difficult to work or read. Fast wireless internet connection is available. The restaurant is o.k. If you...
