Athenee Palace Hilton is well located, across the square from the Art Museum and within walking distance of the main sights of Bucharest such as the Old City, History museum and Parliament building. When you enter the building the foyer is absolutely spectacular, with marble columns and chandeliers etc. The rooms are large - ours was in fact 2 rooms,... More

I must say it's a very good hotel. I got a HH Diamond upgrade to junior executive suite on the 5th floor. Room wasn't spectacular in its design, but it was clean and quite well maintained (quite, as air conditioning wasn't working at the beginning. but technician fixed within 5 minutes). Bathroom is not too large and a bit tired,... More

I was in this hotel from August, 19 till August, 21. It was a business trip and I needed place for rest after very busy days. I can honestly say, Hilton in Bucharest is a really good hotel with perfect location and high service standarts.

Hotel is wonderful in terms of location, rooms, service staff. Loved the associated cafe and spent time there almost every day. A great place to use as your base to explore the city and surrounding countryside. BUT - the concierge service is the worst I've encountered in Europe. Don't expect to utilize it for anything more than calling a cab.

Centrally located, great friendly staff with very good service. Clean room. My only concern is the Bath Tub/Shower. The bath tub is very deep/high and makes it difficult for older people like me (72) to get into and out of. Had to be very careful when taking a shower so I wouldn't fall. Other than this, the hotel was excellent... More

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.

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
