I am not sure if it is only the Hilton Bucharest or the entire city that makes me so happy of being there. But I would defiantly vote for both together. Athenee Palaca by Hilton is defiantly one of the highest recommendations in town. It has an amazing location, very secure, the staff is simply helpful and smiling, walking distance... More

The Athenee Palace is very centrally located and has all of the amenities you would expect from a five star hotel. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and the air conditioning was especially appreciated in the 30+ degree weather. This hotel was booked as part of a package with a river cruise so our room rate...

We loved our stay at the Athenee Palace Hilton in Bucharest. The hotel is celebrating 100 yrs and the pictures and stories tell a wonderful story. The rooms however are modern and update and have all the amenities you would except from a Hilton. The location is near many cafes and museums and the City Hop On/Off pick up point.... More

We were booked there through Viking cruises ~ so not our choice. The rooms were very tired and badly in need of updating. Dark and dreary with little lighting. Lobby area is nice but once you get off the elevator it's not good. Not a good location either ~ a 15 minute walk to the Old City and a 30... More

For the novice 5 star person like me its advantage is that it's global. So like Mac Donald's you can trust its standards without having to research them . Of course one can nitpick about differences between one Hilton and another or other hotels that rates at 5 star but it becomes a pretty petty debate. As I'm one who... More

I don't expect clothes to effectively disappear from my room with no apparent trace in a hotel, and certainly not one of this supposed category. I'd stayed at the Athenee Palace several times on business trips as had some of my colleagues, and all was well. However, on a recent visit I left a dress and two jackets in the... More

Comfortable, spacious, well isolated and well equipped rooms. Excelent breakfast with lots of choices served in a light and stylish dining room. Convenient location close to a bunch of monuments and musea and the old city center, that you can reach with a 15 minutes walk. Professional and helpful staff, though a bit dry (Bucharest people don't smile much).
