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

Howard Johnson is a stable point of my Bucharest visits, in the last 10 yrs I was there 4 times. The rooms are allways spotless, the staff is extremely helpful and breakfast is excellent. Although there would bei cheaper options in this category but Howard Johnson worths the price.

I enjoy my time staying at this hotel. The rooms are comfortable, although a bit old fashioned and I miss not having a balcony. Great breakfast options. The small coffee shop / bar to the right of reception has great staff and is a perfect place to meet guests / friends. The bell boys (men) were also a great source... More

The HoJo Grand Plaza is a very good hotel in the City of Bucharest. I stayed there because it was quite close to the office I had my meetings. The rooms are nice and clean. The bathroom is spacy and comfortable. Maybe not the latest state of art. And the air condition obviously was close to its maximum capability without... More

Very good hotel in Bucharest city centre. Not really cheap. Nice bar. Good breakfast. A shame the coffee was not of high quality. Nice feature, they have a Japanese restaurant. Good service and food cooked very well. Staff is friendly and polite. I can recommend. Airco is a problem both in the rooms and in all other public spaces.

Good location, central, despite the fact that it is not a nice neighborhood. Clean room, expensive mini bar, very small spa, with wet and dry sauna and gym. No pool. They have massage services also. Good breakfast. Nice staff.
