    « two things for this hotel... »

    I have two thing to say for this hotel. If there was only the positive one it will be perfect 5 point hotel but I can't avoid the second. Let's start with the positives: The hotel is not so far from the city center - you can take a taxi or to walk (with a free map from the reception) The center is a 20mins walk away. In the neighborhood there are a plenty of food shops including a big brand supermarket if you prefer to eat in the room. The room is big and clean. The bed is comfortable. The negative is for me big problem. At the same evening in the restaurant was an event. We were a guided big group and in fact there is no second place to eat in the hotel. We asked several times for a way to be served no matter the event. So we went to look for an outside place. At the morning the restaurant was not completely cleaned after the event. But the chef has done his job. The breakfast was mid-level but expected for this type of hotel and brand. I am not sure is there an requirement for branded 4 star hotel like this to have a second restaurant but I am wondering what will happen if our group was ordered something via room service at the same time... is this the same as to be served at the restaurant together with the event...

    « Good location with a good restaurant »

    The hotel is in a quiet spot opposite a park. Very restful. The restaurant is good but you might want to walk to the old town, about a 25 minute walk, and get more traditional food and atmosphere. It loses a point fore the bathroom. The show had a curtain or door that doesn't quite close so the floor of the bathroom can flood. A very small shelf for toiletries is over the sink making it hard to bend over the sink.

    « A quiet location »

    My husband chose this hotel from reading Tripadvisor reviews. The location was quiet being located by a park. It is about 15 minutes from the centre but we don't mind walking. Breakfast is buffet but we weren't offered eggs cooked to order. Eggs and bacon were on the buffet table. The choice was okay but we would have preferred fresh Romanian bread. We did find the bed a bit hard and the duvet does not hang over the sides of the bed. It was a very quiet location although 2 planes flew very low on both nights.

    « Clean room, good beds. Be aware for weddingparties in weekend. »

    Acceptable hotel on 15 minutes walking distance from historical city center. Clean room and bathroom. Breakfast not very special but okay. We just had bad luck because during our 5 days stay there were three (wedding) parties with live music on friday, saturday and sunday. Very noisy till late in the night a hard and annoying beat throughout all the hotel. Same 3 days the dining room was also occupied for weddingguests. We had to take our diner in a corner of the breakfast room. We wisely fled the hullabaloo and took a restaurant in town.

    « Nicer than a 3 star hotel »

    Rooms were clean and updated. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was really nice. TV was small but normal for Europe. Free parking and above average breakfast. I would have given them a 5 star except I had a room on floor 1 right above where they played loud music until midnight. Couldn't sleep the second night I was there (Friday night). I would request a room higher up if I were to go again.

    « A good sound hotel »

    We stayed in the Silva for three days, having chosen it because the wedding reception we went to was held there. The room was good, but there were drawbacks: There was little storage space and no drawers at all. The bathroom was small and badly arranged, though clean and in good working order The bottom of the window was obscured by a structure in front of it. This interfered with the view, but also gave privacy. It looks as if only a few rooms on the first floor are like this. WiFi was good The food at the wedding reception was good and copious. It appears that the hotel hosts many weddings. The service was helpful and the staff spoke good English.

    « Wedding »

    We (20 approx) Irish attended a wedding at this venue in July 2016. The whole occasion was a great success. The food - all eight courses was top clas,s especially "the samarle". The service was very professional and not overpowering. We did not stay here but we had access to a number of bedrooms. The hotel itself is excellent - the rooms finished to a high and modern standard with A/C and quality decor. The cost were very low by western European standards - a little high by Romanian standards - but for us great value. We came back the next day and had breakfast on the terrace - really nice.

    « Excellent overnight stay. »

    We arrived after a long day of travel (flights and then a four-hour drive from Bucharest) and were eager to get some rest. When we arrived around 9:30pm, the property was crowded and the check-in agent advised us that there were not one but TWO weddings currently going on at the property. We still managed to find a parking spot with no problem, and checkin took less than five minutes. Our room was on the first floor and I was worried about the noise from the parties, but once we were in the room it was like we were the only people on the property (but not in a creepy way). The room was comfortable with plenty of amenities, and we got a great night's sleep. The breakfast the next morning was very good, typical European offerings served in a nice setting (we could choose indoor or outdoor seating). We would like to spend more time in Sibiu and when we manage to come back, we will choose the BW Hotel Silva again.

    « Mediul to high »

    « Very nice hotel »

    This hotel is very nice, we have big room with balcony. Balcony view direct to the Park. Nice room most especially granite bathroom. We ate also in the restaurant, the problem was they served as the food and the waiter turns out the light, and we dont know what going on. Nobody inform us, after a Minute the staff coming out with bday cake and etc. We eat with no lights on, after singing 3x happy Birthday Songs they turn on the lights ??. The foods was good.

    « One of the best hotels in Sibiu »

    We stayed there in weekend, every Saturday might be a wedding there, but if u stay at an upper appartement u can't hear the noise of music. Very cozy and comfortable, bathroom very good, room excellent with balcony, Wi-Fi good and breakfast OK. All in one I give them 5 stars.

    « Well located, worth a visit »

    Great location, right into one of the largest parks in Sibiu, rooms are clean, mattreses firm and very clean. There are some tenis courts nearby and a pool (not opened at the time of my visit, even if its July already). Everything is perfect except if you are lucky enough to have your room facing back of the hotel, there is a mini forest full of crows. They are singing their song night and day, it may sound funny but when theres like 150 of them the feeling beats any serious horror movie. Specially at night :)

    « A little far from town but worth a stay »

    This is one of the best hotels I stayed in while traveling through Romania and Bulgaria. It's rated 3 stars but it's better than the 4-star hotels I've stayed in. I'll start with the negative: (1) It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the pedestrianised area downtown. (I didn't check if there're buses available.). (2) The shower stall area between the floor and wall joint is brown from long term use. Also the plastic holder/frame for the sliding glass panels has come loose at the bottom. Doesn't look good for their maintenance people. But there're lots of good things about this hotel: (1) The reception staff are super friendly and helpful. And, of course, they speak excellent English; (2) The bed is large and comfortable; (3) Room is large with a nice big balcony (4) Free wifi ? drops out once or twice, but fast and generally reliable; (5) Lots of power points for charging your phone or whatever; (6) Good amenities: safe, minibar (use the fridge for storing your foodstuff), coffee maker, etc. (7) Decent sized TV (about 22?) with tons of channels (sports, movies) including BBC, CNN and even CCTV; (8) Large, nice, park outside where you can go for walks or runs; (9) Breakfast consists of a good assortment of cheeses, juices, yoghurt, fruit, breads, sliced/chopped tomatoes/cucumbers, cold cut meats, salami, 4-5 different cereals. (10) Computer with printer in the reception area to print your boarding pass or whatever. (11) Bus stop to neighbouring towns (e.g. Sighisoara) just five minutes walk from the hotel. If you don't mind the 20-minute walk to the downtown area, this hotel would be a great choice.

    « Very good place in Sibiu »

    Very good location (about 10 minutes walk to Cetate), at the border of Sub Arini parc, very good service, a very good price for 4* hotel in Sibiu. The breakfast buffet had a great variety. The parking is free.

    « Very good location! »

    We stayed just one Night but we left with the intention to return soon. The room is big and clean (at the 4 stars area) The staff is very friendly and they smile a lot! We ordered breakfast in roomservice, and we received a big and full plate, coffe, juices. The view from the balcony is beautiful! We recommend this hotel!

    « Nice place »

    The hotel is located close to a park and it's pretty hidden from the noise and agitation of the city streets. The rooms are nice, big and clean. The food served at breakfast was fresh and good. I recommend it!

    « Nice hotel »

    When you perform the check in ask for the room with balcony because they are renovated. The staff is kind and they accept to change my room. Breakfast is acceptable. The hotel is in a park with a beautiful view , nice and quiet.

    « Excellent »

    Very clean, comfortable rooms and quite big, private guarded parking. The food in the restaurant is very tasty and the service is excellent. Location of the hotel is very good, situated near a park which is ideal for a walk. Everything that you would expect from a nice hotel is there.

    « Excellent room and breakfast »

    Excellent room and breakfast and good location. Room and bathroom was clean and tidy. Quite location near a nice park, walking distance to center of town. Good choice of TV channels. Bed was a little hard to sleep on but all in all a nice place to stay.

    « A hotel located near stadium and central park »

    Nice hotel, with good conditions. Well located to make some runs near the hotel and still near the center. The hotel doesn't have any fitness room. The rooms have new furnish and the wifi is free. The breakfast is average. Only for portuguese lovers of coffee, the coffee from machine is not included in the price but doesn't worst to waste this money.

    « Good hospitality with affordable price »

    I and my wife stayed 1 night at this hotel during our driving trip in Romania room#104. Hotel located next to the beautiful park and can walk 15-20min to Sibiu old town. Room size is quite large compare with hotel in Bucharest. Private parking is provided for hotel guess. Big double bed with LCD cable TV. Room is clean and warm with nice bathroom and good shower. Our room opposite to the park. It has balcony but cannot go out. Slipper is provided in room. Hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good with variety of food. There is hotel function on that day but our room is far away from restaurant part, no loud noise to disturb our sleep. Price is good compare with product and service that we get from this hotel.

    « A hint of luxury for common people's price »

    I stayed there for a week on business trip in Oct. My room was beutifully arranged (no 102), I liked the fabrics' design and the bathroom. All the amenites were working (only the fridge too loud, but you can switch it off for a night). A room with a view on a park, nice buffet breakfasts, haven't eaten anything else but the htel price of beer very nice too :). The room was clean and warm. The price was lower than in 3* Ibis nearby at that time. Nothing you could fuss about. 15 minutes of steady walking distance from the Old Town

    « Mostly very good , but ! »

    A nice hotel with lovely views over the park, excellent reception, our suite was clean and acceptable , but the food was about as average as food can be , well presented but so very , very average ,a shame as I am a food lover (not a food critic) I wish this hotel all the luck as it is a nice place with decent people but please get a Chef .....

    « Good stay »

    I stayed here for 3 nights on business. My first time in Romania and was a bit unfamiliar with eastern European ways. The hotel was basic but very tidy, very clean and comfortable. Close to city centre and a nice park outside the hotel. Rooms have air conditioning which was good for the hot summer. Breakfast was fine, decent variety but basic and not great coffee. The wifi was excellent and the staff at the concierge were extremely helpful. Overall a decent place to stay

    « Great hotel at great price »

    We loved our 2 nights stay at this hotel . it is situated near a big park and it's 15 minutes of walking from town center . the staff is very friendly and customer oriented. We had a 2 rooms appartment , livingroom and bedroom, tv's in each room and individual AC for each room. The area is really quiet and the morning air is fresh . breakfast was good with a lot to chose from . The hotel has an outdoor parking in the yard and it's guarded 24/7. The price is lower than other hotels in the same cathegory.

    « Best Western Silva Hotel »

    Old renovated hotel in the green area of the city. There are good points and weak points for this hotel. Service is old time fashion, rooms are refurbished but still small, restaurant is good but not as expected. Suitable for business trips and for events.

    « Mixed perspectives on this hotel... »

    We stayed in Sibiu for two nights as part of a driving holiday through Romania and took the one bedroom suite as it was so cheap coming from the UK. Arrival was very efficient - large car park and keycard quickly issued. The suite was enormous - almost too big - a good sized bedroom, well laid out bathroom (see below though), a balcony with a 6 or 8 seat table and a massive main room with chairs and a small kitchenette which we did not use. The weather was very hot so we were pleased the air con worked well. Our first challenge was the bath / shower. The tap to activate the shower did not work (it was stuck or very stiff) which after a long driving day wasn't good. It was a Sunday and the duty manager said there was no one to repair it. In the end he came up and fiddled with it and got it working. The plumber came the next day but there was no difference and we fiddled with it to make it work. This shouldn't have happened and the duty manager was a little surly about it too. More positively, the hotel is located by big park. However, it is a good 15 minute walk (certainly in the heat of our visit) to the old city. We came back on the first night and had a drink outside at the hotel which was very pleasant after 9pm. The second night we ate there as we had a long journey the next day - no fans though which made it hot outside at even 730pm (a nearby bar had cooling fans which made it comfortable to drink out mid afternoon - perhaps the hotel should get some?). Food was a little bland too. Breakfast was disappointing after the rave reviews of some. The first day we came down in the last 30 mins or so of service and nothing had been replenished. Overall the hotel was cheap from a UK perspective and the room very comfortable apart from the shower which should have been fixed. If the hotel worked on a few issues it could improve. A little too far from the city in mid- summer heat too.
