Sport Hotel Onesti North/Mid Romania: "Awful hotel" Romania Hotel Tip by Stevib

Romania Hotels: 129 reviews and 164 photos

This is a warning to anyone especially NON SMOKERS planning to stay even one night in the sport hotel in the city of Onesti in North central Romania.
Located on bridge at the lower end of the town the outside of the hotel looks quite presentable. Even the reception, although sparse in decoration is clean and presentable.
However be warned.... The bedrooms are anything but. The hotel does not have a non-smoking policy anywhere within its 4 walls and this is immediately noticeable on leaving the reception into the corridors. To put it bluntly it stinks to high heaven. The rooms are the same; it is hard to draw breath. We tried three rooms before settling for the least smelly of the 3 it was late and we were stuck with it for the night. Not only did the room stink, the carpets were old and sticky and doors were falling or fell off the furniture when they were opened. The toilet leaked every time it was flushed. We couldn’t get out the place fast enough the next morning. I will admit that travelling through Turkey, Bulgaria and Romania (Eastern Europr in general) non-smoking anything is hard to find. However this was not a budget hotel and is advertised on many hotel booking web sites including
For the money I would advise go to the top of the town and stay in the old Trotus hotel. Its an old communist hotel but has been refurbished and has non smoking rooms. Its slightly more costly but your more likely to wake up with lungs still working.
