Where to stay in Iasi

If you're looking for 19th-century opulence, look at what's on offer around the park and plazas to the east of the main train station. Looking over these pleasant public spaces, elegant hotels offer extra features, such as spas and fine restaurants. As you head southeast, you'll find a number of simpler, more modern hotels. Look around the residential areas and side streets in the historical center for budget-friendly guesthouses and small hotels.
