But hotel starts for sure not. I know the Phoenicia Grand Hotel which is really a nice hotel, and in Phonicia Express I was also expecting some similar 4 stars quality. But what I received…??? Nice big room, but dirty bath, with cheap appliances, a bad quality toilet paper, which could be adequate for a two start hotel but definitely... More

We have chosen this hotel based on reviews and price. Hotel was nice, rooms not too big but comfortable and individual AC was working perfectly. We got a little scared about how far it is from Bucharest center but no worries - reception can call a taxi for you for around 30 RON which is around 8 EUR. Returning to... More

The hotel is situated near Bucharest still not far (depends on your business) in a quiet area. If you come with car there is a large parking lot. The WiFi and all services are as presented on site, very good. The personal is always happy to help. I recommended this hotel for any type of situation on which you do... More

I was transiting Bucharest for business purposes and i decided to stay at Phoenicia Express Hotel, because the hotel is located on the Bucharest Ring next to Otopeni exit. It was a relaxing and very pleasant stay! I enjoyed a delicious dinner in the Kasttane restaurant and a soccer game in the Lobby Bar. The bar tender girl was very... More

I have only stayed in the hotel for one night, in a tripple room with my family. I really appreciated that the hotel was close to the airport, only a 10 minutes ride, as we had and early morning flight to catch. As opposed to other reviews, the tripple room we have got was not spacious at all, barely any... More

We stopped over at the Phoenicia Express Hotel to be close to the airport as we were dropping our daughter and grand daughter off for an early morning return flight to the UK. The receptionist was welcoming on our arrival. We booked a triple room which was extremely spacious, with comfortable beds and additional pillows provided on request. The bathroom... More

I entered the country through Bucharest and my stay at a downtown hotel turned out to be a disaster so my stay at the Phoenicia Express on my return was like finding an oasis in the desert. Once inside, I did not want to leave. A fully equipped hotel. A gorgeous lobby/'lounge and full resaurant.The room was beautifully decorated.Best of... More

we spent here Dragobete (similar to Valentie's day), using a special offer (champagne, rose petals - but artificial, candles - but no matches). the room is of a reasonable size, with a canoplin, sleepers (but no bathrobe for the pool & sauna), with a window between room and bathroom (depinding on tastes...). The breakfast (buffet type) is rich but it... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An elegant place, Phoenicia Express is located in the north area of Bucharest, only 5 minutes away from Henri Coanda International Airport. Our hotel is the best solution for accommodation, if you are coming at one of the fairs held at Romexpo Center or if you are just visiting Bucharest, both for the cultural aspects (offering immediate access to downtown-15 minutes-to Victoria Square) or shopping and entertainment (by being so closed to Baneasa Shopping City or the most popular clubs in Bucharest).Being easily accessible, located on the ring road of the city, the hotel offers outstanding facilities and services. You will have 181 rooms arranged according to our motto: “comfort, quality and good taste”, swimming pool, SPA center, two restaurants, a lobby bar, night club and 460 places for conferences, cocktail parties, weddings and private events. Select a hotel in the north of the city and near Otopeni Town and you will always find the best prices and respect for what is customer care! ... more   less
