Chisinau, Moldova
Reviewed 11 November 2016

This rooms are nice, but it seems more of a motel because all rooms have car parking spots in front of them. Extensive conference facilities and spa. Birds and crickets are very loud all night and morning. The location is out of the way, so it is a place to get away and just stay there all the time. They...

More can be done especially the inside of the bathrooms, showers can be cleaned better. Furniture need a lot of revamping. the staff in the banqueting department need to be more positive, be ready to work on a faster pace and be more open to guests.

The conference venue was good in terms of rooms and AV. The feel of the hotel was nice. The reception staff was friendly but not available during the night - they didn't answer the phones in the evenings even when there was a security issue outside of our room.

Place is nice with many facilities and overall the service is good. The space for the room is adequate but people make to much noise sometimes at night and generally in the morning. Generally satisfied except for the Wi-Fi

The staff members were welcoming and always willing to help. I am looking forward to go back again in company of my friends and family. The location of the hotel makes it easy for the guest to find it on their own accord.

Please ensure equity is service provision. Improve your internet connectivity and speed. as its limitation on use is appalling. Provide water to all the rooms and not selectively. This is a basic in all hotels of your status.

Valuestay reservation was very good value for money. Reception needed some work on efficiency but the rest of the stay was pretty good. Excellent choice if you are at the Birchwood for an event. Very short trip from OR Tambo International airport.

Excellent service from the staff, right from security reception and the restaurants and food. Room maintenance need to be upped up a bit and TVs need to be upgraded. Vodacom reception needs a booster I had to go out of my room to call
