Despite the win, head coach Joachim Löw and captain Manuel Neuer weren't completely satisfied after Germany missed several gilt-edged opportunities to kill the game off following Serge Gnabry's first-half opener.
"Romania were comparatively a better side than Iceland. Overall, we did well without the ball and put together some good moves too," Löw said after the final whistle.
"If there is one thing to criticize, then that would be our chance conversion rate. We could have made it easier for ourselves really. The important thing, though, is that we got the points so we can still be satisfied," he added.
"It was hard work tonight. We should have killed the game off earlier and then we wouldn't have been in danger at the end. We need to score the second and third goals to be able to relax more. We were lacking that coolness and cleverness in front of goal. My goalkeeping counterpart did really well though."
