#UnforgetfulAccomodations. Where to sleep like in the old times in Dolj


If you have ever wanted to make a stop in Craiova, if you are here for business or simply want to see Dolj and want to live a different kind of accommodation experience, just like in the 19th century, we thought that it would be nice to have a guide of hotels that have exactly that atmosphere. Craiova from the Belle Epoque, the Dolj of old times and, in general, a different atmosphere awaits for you in some of the hotels or mansions in the county.

Hotel Splendid

Hotel Splendid is located in the heart of the Historical Centre of Craiova, in a classic building for the architecture of this area. As the owners describe it, the hotel is housed in a historic building from 1900 which, before the war, housed the "Vulturul de Mare" store, then a buffet called "Splendid", until 1990. Out of a desire to preserve the aroma of those days, the building underwent an extensive process of restoration and consolidation, becoming the hotel that still bears the name "Splendid". For accommodation, guests have at their disposal 24 rooms decorated in an eclectic style with art deco influences.
