“Wonderful boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

I loved Hotel Berthelot. It's centrally located but quiet. The staff were friendly & incredibly helpful when I had a problem with a taxi driver. They went out of their way arranging maps, train schedules and ensuring I was comfortable. If only more hotel staff were trained to provide such excellent service!

Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of dishes to choose from and I enjoyed a very nice meal in the evening at the hotel restaurant. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable (I loved the big bed with feather pillows & doona). There was a wide range of tv channels, excellent free wi-fi, air cond and lovely bathroom and there was nothing I could fault. Would definitely return here if in Bucharest again and would highly recommend this hotel to others especially as the price was very reasonable.

Staffs are friendly and helpful. Free welcome drink on arrival and you can choose from a range of soft drink, beer, fresh juice and red/white wine. Great location and you can walk for 5-10mins back to your hotel at night after a symphony performance by the world renowned George Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra at Romanian Athenaeum.

Breakfast is plentiful with cold & hot choices. Clean room with free wifi. A wonderful stay at Bucharest to kick off and end our Romania journey.

When we arrived to hotel, all of us said simultaneously: "This is how every hotel should look like!". Our room was perfect, new and modern with excellent air-condition. Since it was above 35 C, that was very important. The bathroom and shower were wonderful, the bed comfortable and duvet nice and silky. TV had more than 50 channels and wifi was free with excellent signal throughout the hotel. The underground garage was a little bit small but everything was ok. The hotel also has a nice terrace where you can have a complimentary drink upon the check-in. The breakast was varied, fresh and tasty. Of course, the hotel is right in the city centre, a few meters from Atheneum and 15-20 minutes on foot from Lipscani nightlife centre. This was the best hotel I've stayed at this year and I highly recommend it.

This hotel is centrally located and the room was quite nice an comfortable. But, in a four star hotel the shower should not leak onto the floor. The restaurant is open most of the time which is a good convenience and we had a coupon for a discount. No problems with the staff or the service.

Bucharesti only has room for 20000 visitors. Finding a hotel reservation is a problem. The Berthelot is centrally located. The air conditioning works...but the place seems new, fresh, sweet smelling so it shouldn't be a surprise. Lift. The buffet in the morning offers fish every day, grilled egg plant, grilled tomatoes, marvelously mild bacon, no problem with the most important meal of the day. The excellence and variety goes on and on.
Staff are personable, direct, clearly advocating for the traveler, the opposite of adversarial. Concierge day or night a wealth of help and council.
Taxi stand around the corner to the right. Atheneum (national concert hall) about a two minute walk. Packed local restaurants offer nothing over the Bethelot and sometimes less. Haven't felt so satisfied since rural France. Ask the staff.

Room Tip: Early, advance planning.

Excellent location 5 minute walk from Revolution Square. Lovely room, full shower/ bath, phone, TV and free WiFimthrought hotel. AND totally non smoking except the patio. Almost unheard of here in Romania. This alone is the best reason to stay here.
Great staff, small lobby bar, and restaurant with wide menu. Fabulous buffet breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room for more quiet but rooms are pretty well sound proof.
