Suceava County Hospital spokesperson Tiberiu Bradatan said the patients complained of drowsiness, nausea and muscle fatigue. He added that carbon monoxide poisoning has not been conclusively found to be the cause.

Hotel owner Gheorghe Filipciuc said air samples have been collected from every room and analyses are underway to determine whether carbon monoxide is responsible. According to the owner, the hotel's 15 rooms are heated using a modern heating station.

Suceava Police department spokesperson Gabriel Pantiru said police have opened an investigation.

Earlier Thursday, hospital manager Mirela Frateanu told MEDIAFAX that seven people might have been poisoned with carbon monoxide and that one died. Suceava prefect Sorin Arcadie Popescu said the hotel had been evacuated and police are investigating the causes of the incident.
