This is a nice hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful with a map and suggestions for where to go and what to see. The hotel is clean and in good condition, and is centrally located near restaurants and shops in a busy area, though the hotel itself is set a block back from the main street so it... More

I stayed 3 months in this hotel. The service, the rooms and the facilities are excellent. Its location is very central; every interesting place in Bucharest is just a short walk away. Piatza Romana is also one of the good places to find everything.

Despite being given a smoking room, this hotel was a good surprise. Well appointed, comfortable beds and spacious room. Breakfast has a good selection of cooked and continental selections, and reception staff are very pleasant. A good choice in Bucharest.

Was there on a conference. Large room on 8. Floor. Clean bath and bed. Staff friendly and responsive (bought me batteries). Breakfast good. Free and fast WiFi. To improve: availability of elevators. Everything can be reached in 20 minutes walk.

I stayed here for one night, with colleagues. The hotel staff were very helpful at all times. There is underground parking, which is payable on top of the room rate at 80 Lei per day (interesting that there were Lamborghinis and Ferraris parked down there too!) The breakfast is in a spacious restaurant area, though windowless, and the choice is... More

Very convenient to move around freely in the city center. Also great room "gym" and staff. I did not try the restaurant but it looks great. The rooms are not very big and the parking is free of charge. Worth it.

This was my first time to Bucharest and decided to stay at this hotel as it was in close proximity to many things, and in walking distance to most. The hotel is a smoking hotel so don't be surprised when they ask you if you want a smoking or non smoking room. The lobby area is impressive for a HoJo... More
