The Metropolis (rated 5 stars) seems to be a new construction (no architectural limitations) hotel by a park near the Bistrita river. It's an atrium design with a transparent glass elevator that matches high-end North American hotels in layout and amenities. They have a very small underground parking, but usually you should be able to park outside. We were nicely greeted upon arrival. The hotel can be rented for events, and the noise from a wedding kept us up until 1 AM. We wanted to order a pedicure and massage for the next day. The problem was that between 9 PM and 10:30 PM (when I stopped trying) it was impossible to get anybody to pick up the phone - definitely unexpected for a hotel with a 5 star rating. The next day, somebody answered and promised to call back, but did not in the next 30 min until we left the room at 9:30 AM. Needless to say -
no pedicure and no massage. Breakfast was adequate - but they keep their tomatoes and cucumbers in a refrigerated glass cabinet, which is not ideal to bring out the taste. At 480 lei, a bit on the expensive side.
