Surprisingly good service and great value for money. Good location in the heart of the city but quiet. Excellent internet connectivity, good breakfast and great shuttle service for the airport and the concierge was particularly helpful. Bucharest was not on my radar before this business trip but I will definitely return with my partner and take a trip to Transylvania!

I have now stayed here four, perhaps five times, and they still don't know me and I still have to fill out a their card. I can't say I am not annoyed by that but I haven't let that affect my review. The hotel is a lovely-looking hotel in a very good location with, on the whole, friendly staff. I... More

I am planning my third visit on Easter weekend. I have been reading the reviews and am appalled by some of the comments. This is a historic building, not new construction. It is lovely! There are great events on Revolution Square and its location is very central. I have found the staff extremely accommodating of my needs. Last year the... More

Nice, large, clean, well equipped rooms. Irons and ironing boards in the room, which is wonderful for business travelers with cramped suitcases!!! Very good service. Really beautiful lobby with special decor. Excellent location, 15 minutes walk from old town. Everyone spoke excellent English.

We've just finished a business event at this wonderful hotel and I'd really recommend it. Nice rooms with Hilton standards and great customer service.

As a Hilton Gold member, I received an upgrade to an executive room with access to the lounge (points stay). The breakfast there was great, and in the evening they served an excellent dinner with romanian food. It was nice to get free snacks and drinks during the day too. Room was excellent, as can be expected by Hilton. I... More
