The City of Cluj was and still is considered to be the ‘capital of Transylvania’ due to the fact that it is an important cultural and business center. Though, Cluj’s historical buildings and sites could not compete with those of Sibiu and Brasov they are interesting; its cultural life is reach and its business opportunities are complex. All those factors make from Cluj an important tourist destination for various type of tourist. But what is the situation of Cluj lodging capacities? Between 1990 and 1999, the number of hotels in Cluj grew slowly from 10 to 17 during this period. By the end of April 2005 we were able to identify 45 operational lodging capacities in Cluj and over 50% were open between 2002 and 2005. The present paper would investigate the causes of this ‘explosion’ of Cluj lodging capacities and if this quick development generated hotels/ lodging capacities with distinctive features, capable to compete on a crowded market.
