The windows cannot be opened. You need to really turn on the air conditioner to have some air. If you are sensitive to this, then it's your problem. The internet connection is slow. The water pressure in the pipes is not constant (sometimes water stops). The room is dark, no lights at the top, the only window is small. The... More

Not the plushest of rooms, but clean, a decent bed, and well stocked bathroom and minibar. Iron and board, and a decent tea and coffee tray. A friendly bar downstairs, and a reasonable gym (though they could do with a concept 2 rowing machine) and spa. I will return.

Hotel is located in a very nice location, close to the centre of the Bucharest. Clean rooms, very friendly staff. The only thing which needs improvement is the air condition unit which is a bit too noisy. Definetely the hotel I'll be coming back to.
