E60 400 Borsului Road, Oradea, 410605, RO
Close to the Hungarian border
The ***Hotel Iris, we came across just outside of Oradea in the small town of Bors. It was situated on the main E60 road, but as the rooms were sound-proofed, we didn't hear a thing and had a good nights sleep in a quiet room.
The Hotel looked fairly new and was situated next to an industrial estate, so not the place to stay for days.
Reception could speak English, so we booked a double room which included breakfast.
The room was a good size, even had room for a two seater lounge. It was air-conditioned, I had desk where I could sit and use the FREE WI-FI, Fridge, a very nice bathroom and non-smoking rooms and FREE PARKING.
No Tea & Coffee making facilities.
In the morning, we enjoyed a good breakfast making a great start to the day.
The price was much more expensive than what we had paid in Romania.
PRICES IN 2014
42 EUR/ single room

belgrade to oradea
just wondering the best (or cheapest!)way to get from belrade to oradea in the next couple of days, I can't seem to find much info on the internet (probably doesn't help that the hostel computer keeps crashing!)so any help would be really appreciated
Re: belgrade to oradea
Best way is bus or train from Belgrade via Temisoara & Arad to Oradea.
You will need to change bus/train at Temisoara.
For buses info from Belgrade chek www.bas.rs
For info on trains call Belgrade international enqury desk:+381 11 360.28.99
or chek here for info on belgrade-temisoata train:
It is a long ride some 340km and with car takes best part of 6 hrs.
Can not tell you about bus, as is lower & its stops at Temisoara & Arad. but I will add another hour on the top of it at least.
From Temisoara you will need to make arrangmats to get to Oradea.
Hope this was helpfull.
Re: belgrade to oradea
As mentioned above, the best way to do this is to go from Belgrade to Timisoara and then catch another train or bus to Oradea.
The big problem is that there isn't much public transport between Belgrade and Timisoara, just one train (it leaves from Belgrade at 3.55PM and gets to Timisoara around 9PM, which is too late for any connections to Oradea; a second class ticket costs 10-15 euros) and one minibus ( check
http://www.geatours.co.yu/eng/temisvar.htm ; it costs 25 euros).
The rest of the trip (from Timisoara to Oradea) is easy, there are 7-8 trains and numerous buses between these cities daily; the trip takes 3 - 4 1/2 hours and it costs under 10 euros.
Train timetables are available on http://infofer.ro/ and you can check bus timetables here:

The Black Eagle In English...
Or the "Fekete Sas" in Hungarian, or "Vulturul Negru" in Romanian... you decide how to call Oradeas most famous, impressive and beautiful building...
This was one of the most importent projects of the architects Komor Marcell & Jakab Deszo, it was built between 1907-1909 in secession style.
Today the structure includes some shops, bars and restaurants, there is also a cinema and a hotel in funny prices. The interior is covered by a beautiful colored glass which gives the place a special feeling. Each entrance dominated by an eagle, the symbol of the building.
Today the building is under big reconstruction for a few years now and in the near future i hope it will be in a perfect condition.
Ferdinand Square is a special place in oradea because it consists near it some of the most importent buildings in the old town.
You can see there the National Theater, Astoria hotel, restaurant Transilvania. Casa Poinar and in the other side of the rver you can see the City Hall and the Black Eagle Palace.
While you see all that there are in the area some nice cafes and small green parks with some benches where you can seat and enjoyfrom what you see.
