Two days ago I spent one night on Capitol hotel in Bucurest, Romania. Hotel is near the center, five minute walking from pedestrian zone. It's also old hotel, but without air conditioner. Problem is parking, because hotel don't have his own parking, but staff help me to parking my car near the hotel. It's not expensive hotel, but on the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights a couple of weeks ago. The hotel appeared to spend all of its money on the lobby. The rooms were shabby, dusty, and sorely in need of an update. Air conditioning did not work and the room was sweltering. Could not open the movies because of bugs. Breakfast ran out early and they were very... More

Stayed here for the first 2 nights of a tour of Romania. Basic, as expected, shower and toilet did not work very well and were very old, heating in room was good though. Beds were not the most comfortable. Breakfast was sufficient. Wouldn't choose to stay again myself however.

Truth is, staff is really friendly and nice too. But really, if it's more than just the perfect location that you're looking for – it's nothing to write home about. Stayed at the Capitol for 2 nights with my brother. Room was ready for us when we got there, check-in was fast, reception clerk was friendly and informative. So was... More

Forget about the good location - find yourself a good, clean, non-moldy hotel. Other than location it was disapointing in all aspects. The room smelled like mold, had broken furniture, cheap matresses and the wallpaper was torn from the wall. Breakfast was terrible.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during a group travel tour in Romania. It seems that the hotel has not been given any renovation for decades. Our room had a bath-tub where some part of the tub-walls had broken off, I could look into the hotel construction. There was old-fashioned TL lighting in the bath-room, and the blankets... More

Been here twice, great hotel with helpful staff. It has a grand facade. The rooms are nice and clean with good facilities and very quiet. Breakfast is good and the restaurant for evening meal is very high quality with good food. Its a short walk to the Piata Unirii Square and the Unirii shopping mall and there are some good... More

The location is the best you can find in Bucharest, next to the magnificent military building. The receptionist was kind and helpful and the price is ok. The hotel is really dated. Our room was very small, no one socket worked, the bed wasn't confortable. the bathroom finish were terrible and ..... it really needs to be restaured.

The only great thing about my stay at Capitol hotel was the location. Most attractions were in the walking distance. The rooms were not clean; we changed rooms twice and we were not satisfied with their rooms. Wallpaper looked repulsive; the whole hotel itself looked outdated. Food…it was gross. We had breakfast and it was cold.
