3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best lonely planet guide 26 Aug 2013
By Nádia
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of lonely planet guides but this one, in the Romania part, is not fantastic. I spent 12 days travelling through out Romania and the guide that is supposed to be updated in 2013 had too many mistakes about rates, schedules, closing dates... In a country that isn't very prepared for tourism the tips from the guide can be essential, and I felt this guide didn't help me that much like other did before. two examples - to visit the Danube delta and be able to go to the beach in that area plus do some birdwhatching one is subjected to the ferry schedule and that imply at least 2 days since they are very slow. this part of the trip has to be very carefully planed and that is not very easy to do in advance by online booking. that is not clear in the guide and they should have given more tips how to enjoy this area. we had two days but we could only do birdwhatching in one area of the reserve and we couldn't go to Salina, for instance.
To do some bear whatching, the same problem. the touristic information offices closes very early, we could find anyone to drive us in the area, the guide should have the schedules right and should help in how to the hiking areas to see bears if you can«t find a local guide or if you can't afford one.
Once again, I had lonely planet guides of countries much harder than romania to travel and they where more useful to plan the trip than this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed 16 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We have used Lonely Planet Guides for many years and wanted a recent Bulgaria guide so bought this, infuriated that we had to buy a Romania Guide when it is unlikely we will be going there. There are only 200 pages on Bulgaria and there is a general lack of detail, some serious omissions, e.g. the Thracian Tomb of Sveshtari (UNESCO listed since 1985 for goodness sake and despite the Thracian Tombs being listed as a highlight) and mistakes. The map at the beginning of the guide has the Bulgarian Black Sea Resorts shown as a highlight but with the arrow pointing to Constanta in Romania - funny but a sign of carelessness editing. I am also getting more and more irritated by Lonely Planet's double page maps with the key on a second page and descriptions of the places on the map on third/fourth/fifth pages, especially as the latter are unumbered and in a different order to the key so you end up trying to look at three pages at the same time. Save your money - find a tourist map on the net for where to go and then print out the Wikipedia entries for them.

1.0 out of 5 stars User unfriendly 3 Jun 2014

Impossible to navigate. There is no way of finding what you want easily. The maps are extremely unclear. Regret not having guide in paperback version. Will never purchase another Kindle Lonely Planet. Complete waste of money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lonely Planet Romania 7 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having bought 15 books from lonely planet covering India, middle East, Korea etc I found the Romanian guide to be sadly lacking in Ifo. i.e ATM's yes they have them!!!!!
The Area I propose to Visit and the city I was to be staying in "Galati" was not even mentioned.
When I'm there for the next 12 months might fill in my time by writing a book.
Also I bought the kindle version. The vocabulary section was obviuosly scanned badly and on largest font size could not be read.
