HOTEL VILA INTERNATIONAL 4*
Timisoara

Ceausescu's former villa in Timisoara, a rather kitsch, modernistic building in lovely parkland close to the city centre. Ceausescu's suite was recently refurbished.
Good location and restaurant, an excellent, great value alternative to the standard business type hotels. En suite bathroom with full facilities. Vila International was completed in a modernist style in 1970 with two floors around a central inner garden with a sliding glass roof. There are 8 rooms and 3 apartments all on the first floor. There is a fresco by Sulca Gorj, a bronze sculpyure by Petre Ietza and a terrapin pool with a fountain in the indoor garden.

Ceausescu was never popular in Timisoara and he always felt uncomfortable when he visited the city. He only ever stayed for two nights in Villa International when he met Tito for a hunting trip in the region. On subsequent visits he stayed in an imposing, 19th century villa nearby but always let people believe he was in Villa International in order to avoid potential assassination. The first apartment in Villa International still contains Ceausescu's furniture and some personal artifacts which may be used by guests. His bedroom is in heavy walnut and comprises a living room, a study, a bedroom and a bathroom which includes a special medical, massage shower. Elena Ceausescu's apartment is white with the same number of rooms and also retains certain decorative objects from her time. This room looks out onto the interior courtyard and the exterior for she liked to keep an eye on things from behind closed curtains. Other personal objects in the hotel include a portrait of the dictator and his wife, a chess table presented as a gift and an Aro 4x4 car which was used for hunting trips. This may be rented on request.

Vila International changed hands in 2007 and has closed for refurbishment. It is expected to reopen in 2008
