Firstly let me say it was an amazing experience to stay in a beautiful, well kept hotel. I can't fault the cleanliness, the manner of the staff or the location.
Some of it's best features were at the Spa, excellent jacuzzi and Finnish sauna - perfect to unwind after a touristy day in Bucharest. The bedroom itself was a good size with all the amenities you'd expect in a 5* hotel, however the bed itself was quite firm and wasn't for me very comfortable to sleep on - however this was a personal preference. I could also not sleep due to the amount of light which came in via the curtains, I think this was why I had such a poor nights sleep the 2 days I stayed.
Bathroom was a very cool, modern design, but the shower does in fact spray water everywhere and with no heated flooring it will remain until the clearer comes in the morning. The provided toilet paper is also not 5* standard, it was simply awful!
Overall a good but not quite 5* experience for me and i'd probably try to look at other hotels when I return to Bucharest.

It was first called "Otelul" and it was built where the old "Broft Hotel" (property of the businessman Menahem Elias) was before. Half a century later it took the Grand Hotel Continental name. The building has passed through a recent restoration, preserving the same classic structure and details. ... more less
