The hotel is part of a world wide chain, so not very originally styled, but it is all right. Good soundproof rooms, clean & comfortable, good varied breakfast (except for the loud music...). Good location too, although at a busy crossing. Good restaurant. Great helpful staff.

It's always a pleasure to stay at Howard Johnson Hotel in Bucarest. It's one of the best hotel I have ever been! Thanks for the kindness of all your staff, the good food, the conforta le and always cleaned rooms, for the silence during the day and, above all, during the night.

Location is fairly good and it's a nice modern hotel. Can't understand why the rooms are so dark, put a ceiling rose in the room! Read so reviews that said it was hot inside and it was too warm in the rooms and the hotel in general. The worst point has to be the water bottles in the room cost... More

I knew we would arrive to the hotel approximately at 5am, so i asked the hotel management via Trip Advisor if there's a possibility for early Check in and got a positive answer. That's exactly what happened when we arrived and it allowed us to get some sleep after a flight and of course, save money. We got room with... More

Room was standard size but clean and fresh; minibar had a good selection of snacks, waters & spirits. Staff was always very helpful and always smilling - room service was always available & worked fast. The hotel has a great location. I had a great stay! Thank you!

The rooms are standard when it comes to size, but clean and fresh. High speed internet. Good selection of breakfast and one-the-minute-made-omelettes-waffles. Good and nicely equipped gym, but with limited open hours which is a bit strange, why not just keep it open 24/7!? Smoky bar, very nice Japanese restaurant, but also VERY pricy.
