Where to stay – Hotel PRIVO, Tg-Mures, Romania
What is it ? A luxury minimalist hotel, in the city of Tg-Mures. PRIVO is the most awarded hotel of Romania, with 19 international awards and 12 national prizes.
Behind the scenes Opened in 2014 by the local entrepreneur Adina Plopeanu and her husband, PRIVO is an original hotel concept where history and modernism complement each other in a perfect way. On the same piece of land live together the hotel itself, a 3,500 mp park and a Art Nouveau villa that was brought back to life, impeccably restored. Villa Csonka was refurbished with original Thonet and Art Deco pieces dating back a century, being now composed of 3 rooms and 3 deluxe apartments.
Sleep The best rooms are the exclusive ones, that combine the subtlety of contemporary design and attention to a minimalist yet elegant style that emphasizes your comfort. High quality materials and services invite you to enjoy total relaxation in a unique ambience. You must try one of the rooms featuring a bathtub in the middle of the room.
Eat Rooms are great, but food is even better. You must try Cappuccino of Shiitake Mushrooms (actually a soup), Smoked Duck Crispy Rolls, Argentinian Beef Tournedos “Rossini”, Purple Sunset (Black currant & sun ripped mango mousse). And then, there is the wine cellar! Configured in two volumes, with an entrance room for wine tasting and a cellar dedicated to long term storage and ageing, the Enoteca is for “les connoisseurs”.
Who goes there Business people, foreign tourists visiting Transylvania, families with kids but also multinational employees who come in Tg-Mures for team buildings.
What’s there to do ? Tg-Mures has become famous internationally for entering the Guinness Book of Records. The record that it broke was of the number of people brushing their teeth at the same time. A truly unique building is the Palace of Culture, built between 1911 and 1913 in the Secessionist style and it remains, till this day, one of the most impressive buildings in Târgu Mureş. It has some of the most beautiful pieces of stained glass, that were created in order to represent Europe at a world exposition, a beautiful picture gallery with over 1,000 paintings and a library with over 1,000,000 books. Equally beautiful is the Roman-Catholic Church. It was built by Jesuits in the 18th century in the Austrian Baroque style. The interior is also splendid, with many paintings and adornments that were created by some of the most renowned artists of the period.
We like The glass walls of the restaurant and the terraces where you can have a quiet breakfast or a lovely dessert in the afternoon.
We don’t like With a swimming pool, it would be the perfect hotel. Also the spa is relatively small.
