Nightmare, Europa Hotel , Ploiesti, Romania
Don't ever go to Europa hotel.
After I paid upfront for 4 nights the equivalent of US$150/night for a 3* room they kiked us out in the middle of the night, saying that we had tried to trick them because we were 3 people instead of 2 even thought when we checked in we gave them 3 passports.
When I asked the receptionist to call me a taxi she told me that I am really shameless.

Don't get overcharged!!!
When I first arrive here, many of the restaurants will overcharge you for meals if they know that you are a foreigner. I went to a restaurant that charge me my meal's meat dish by the grams. On the menu the meat dish will show the price and grams. For example, 70,000 lei for 300gm. I was once charged gram weight times the price. Watch out!!!!
Unique Suggestions: Just be sure to ask the waitress or waiter how the price is calculated. If you make it known that you are aware of the pricing, they will not pull a "fast-one" on you.
Fun Alternatives: Well, if you are concerned about getting overcharged for a meal, you can always go to the Mcdonald's. The food may not be good, but at least you know you will be charged the correct amount.
