As one of Romania’s oldest cities, Iaşi (also known as Yahsh) has multiple personalities. The northeastern city is a college town, the site of the nation’s first university and now home to five of them, as well as nearly 100 Orthodox churches, mostly in the Platoul de Aur (Golden Plateau) area. But more than anything, Iaşi has unofficially served as the epicentre of Moldovian culture since 1408 – it’s an arm’s length from the border of Moldova. Here’s our guide to the best hotels in Iaşi.

Pleiada Boutique Hotel And Spa

Luxury living is only a seven-minute drive from the city centre at this secluded five-star hotel. Nature-inspired decor permeates through the rooms and apartments. Finish your day enjoying the live music at the Maia Fusion restaurant or exhaling in the spa, which has an aromatherapy Finnish sauna.

Its central location is just across from the Unity Museum, but the best sight is from the top of the Panoramic Restaurant, soaring 55 meters above Iaşi.

    Bellaria Hotel

    Retreat to this secluded hotel south of town on Bulevardul Socola on the hills of Bucium.

The 47 rooms feature solid-wood furniture and the Rustic Restaurant serves up old-school favourites, such as radauti (chicken) soup and Moldovan tochitura (pork sausage stew).

    It’s easy to see why this hotel is called Eden—even though it’s practically smack dab in the middle of the old city, inside it’s a quiet oasis. Rooms include doubles or twins, plus there’s an onsite restaurant serving three meals per day – choose from Italian or traditional Romanian cuisine. Just a short walk away is City Hall, Parcul Teatrului Național, and a string of churches, including the Metropolitan Cathedral and Our Lady Queen of Iași Cathedral.
