Hotel Ambient Brasov,Romania

The Ambient, a family friendly property in Romania’s mountain area city of Brasov, is the perfect hotel to serve as a home base for travelers wishing to explore the Transylvania region.
This hotel is not only on a quiet street but also away from the busy center of town, unlike other properties located in the city’s center square.
However, it is within walking distance to the main attractions; the Black Church, Citadel, Rope Street and pedestrian area.

We chose this hotel as it offered exclusive duplex rooms, unlike many other neighboring locales that do not accommodate more than two people in the room.
The hotel website didn’t describe the duplex room well, so I had to contact the hotel staff several times to clarify details and ask for a feather-free, quiet and no -smoking room.(In Romania visitors are still permitted to smoke in hotel rooms as well as public areas.)
When we arrived, the multilingual staff warmly welcomed us, and the check-in was efficient and quick.

Decor

The hotel décor is an interesting spin on a 70’s disco feel, mixed with ultra modern, almost futuristic vibe, and lavish use of dark reds and metallic.
The hotel’s public areas are on the small side so a bit disproportionate to the hotel size.

They include a bar, breakfast area and a busy restaurant along with the reception area. The hotel’s elevators, like all other public spaces, look funky and unique; made of metal and glass so guests can catch a glimpse of the city as they go to their room.

Our Room  Duplex Suite

Our duplex suite in the main building was composed of two rooms; a living room area with a standing closet desk and TV on the bottom floor, and a bedroom with a queen bed and an opening sofa,(with a second television ) on the top floor, both more than adequately lit.

The room amenities we found were robes, slippers, safes and electric kettles. Separated by a carpeted staircase, both rooms were spotless, spacious and quite comfortable for a family of four.

The duplex boasted two bathrooms; one downstairs with a commode, sink and shower enclosure that was slightly elevated to prevent flooding, and the other upstairs with a large Jacuzzi jet tub with a hand-held shower head perfect to use after skiing in the wintertime.
Toiletry kits and towels were generously supplied, so for the first time in many years, we did not need to call the front desk and ask for extras.

There were plenty of areas that had outlets to plug in our devices, and the free Wi-Fi was reliable but only on the bottom floor.

I had originally called and asked the hotel to arrange for a hypoallergenic, feather-free room but somehow the request fell through the cracks.
It was the perfect opportunity for me to observe the hotel’s housekeeping service first hand, and it was impressive.
Unlike in other hotels where housekeeping puts extra bedding on the floor, the maid politely requested that I remove my bag from a chair so she could place the additional sheets and blankets she had brought there.

The hotel offers an ample breakfast with an assortment of cheeses including the Telemea (the Romanian version of Bulgarian white cheese,), scrumptious cold cuts, fresh-cut fruits, and vegetables included in the room charge. The breakfast buffet served in the restaurant also offers coffee, hot chocolate, and different juices. We found the Romanian home made  Zagousca eggplant salad noteworthy.

Autism travel tips:

  • Make sure you ask for a non-smoking room at booking and a top floor in the main building to minimize the street noise if your child is sensitive to that.
  • If you are traveling with younger children, I wouldn’t recommend this room at all since the stairs can be dangerous for them.
  • The hotel doesn’t seem to supply its rooms with any Kleenex tissues so head on to the nearby Billa grocery store and get a box of two for your convenience.
