Hotel Codru

Hotel in Chişinău

Go through the cavernous lobby and ascend the tiny lift to find no-nonsense, business-standard rooms that become downright plush when you reach 'luxury' classification. The location, across the street from the park and near the main entertainment and dining strip, is just about perfect.

Weekends see rates drop by 15%. There's a good on-site restaurant and a handy wine shop in the lobby.
