Hotel review - Hotel Helen, Magura, Bacau, Romania

The room we booked was nice and the bed seemed comfortable, but the heating system was off and in the room it was cold, as if they didn´t expect any guests.

After a few hours the water hydrant against our wall started making noises. When we complained, somebody came in the room and they seemed to know the existing problem. Finally they gave us another room and we had a good sleep.

In the morning the breakfast was decent, but it was annoying because they played loud songs from only one music band. If you are nostalgic for those packed "7 days" croissants, this is the place were you can "enjoy" them at breakfast.

Free wi-fi and free parking places in front of the hotel.

Divide the dough in 2 equal parts. Spread one part on the table and with a glass cut round forms.

With another small round form cut the middle of each doughnut.

Repeat the process until you finish the dough.

Let the donuts rest in a warm place or covered with a towel for another 40 minutes.

Heat the sunflower oil.

Fry the donuts on both sides at medium to high fire.

For the syrup: Mix the water with the honey,  the orange zest and orange juice and let them simmer for a minute.

Let the syrup cool a bit then moist each doughnut in it. If you want you can skip this last part and eat the doughnuts as they are, because they are delicious.
