A slightly cheaper alternative to those spots listed here, Hotel Scorilo (tel. 0259/47-0910; www.hotelscorilo.ro; L200/$86/£53 double) scores low on taste (linoleum-covered headboards, melamine furniture, and wood-and-leatherette sofas) but high on service; it is situated in an old (1703) building near the Catholic Cathedral (and train station), and its in-house restaurant is the best dining option in town .
