The construction was built in a classical style, with a main body reassured by two secondary, symmetrical bodies, and it includes a ground floor, an upper floor and an attic. The facades have classical decorative elements, with striations and frames on the windows, balconies with hardware and applied statues. It represented, together with Popovici Hotel, a standard of Summer tourism of Romania until the First World War and the first interwar decade.
