The main advantage of the hotel is the location, right in the center of İaşi, very close to the Palace of Culture, the newest shopping mall and the pedestrian street, with some points of interest, including some nice churches. The Moldova was the mainly hotel in İaşi during the communist period and some things still remember those days: the reception area, the telephone and the old TV with small screen in the room, the tables and chairs in the restaurant. The double room I received at 11-th floor was clean, with a very nice view overlooking the downtown, a double bed (not twins put together), 2 chairs, a desk, minibar with no expensive goods, it has no balcony, very good WIFI signal, the bathroom was clean and with free toiletries. The restaurant at ground floor is large and has also a terrace, the mood is not the friendliest possible, but the dishes and the prices are pretty good. The breakfast is good enough, with many choices, but the coffee is from a machine. The people at reception are not very warm, but they do their job in good conditions, the parking, even if there are many places, seems to be always full, I can not say nothing about the others facilities of the hotel because I didn’t used them.
Finally, if you like the position, Moldova hotel is probable the better choice for a stay in İaşi, especially if you get a lower price than I paid (47 euro/dbl/breakfast).
