This hotel has always had a reputation for good old-fashioned class.
After a lot of work it really is the best hotel in Bucharest by far.
The entrance and lobby is pure baroque decadence, but the service is now (at last) up to international standards.
Superb room, with good facilities. Modern bathroom beautifully appointed. Possibly looks were chosen over functionality, but not a big issue. One slight niggle: a set of bathroom scales is not required, but if there is one provided, it should work! It was only missing a battery, but a little annoying nonetheless!
Breakfast wasn't the greatest, and the variety on offer doesn't really compete with the major 5* hotels.
But overall the experience was really first class!

The Grand Hotel Continental is located on Calea Victoriei, a place full of history, the center of Bucharest high life since the 1800s. The building was built in 1886 by the plans of two known architects Mr. Enil Ritten Forster and I.I. Rasnovanu in German Renaissance style. 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
