“The only place to stay in Bucharest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I have been at the intercontinental for four days, and have three days left and simply this is a true five star hotel in every sence, from the moment the hotel driver picked me up at the airport in the mecedes sport coupe (and stoped to buy me my first romainian beer) its been a great experiance, the food , the staff , the totally awwsome pool and gym on the 22nd floor. So do yourself a favor when in Bucharest stay at the intercontinental.

Room Tip: Im sure every room in this hotel is excellent :)

This is the hotel where the media was broadcasting from during the uprising that fell the government. It is near metro stops and the beautiful shops and cafes in the old town area. A bit worn from use, it still offers comfort and expansive banquet facilities. Be sure to visit the rooftop pool for an unforgettable view of the city and surroundings.

Stayed here for a long weekend city break. The hotel is in a great position just 1-2min walk from the metro and 5-7 min walk from the main area of nightlife (old town). Stayed in a room with Club lounge access which was a real bonus and great value. The staff in the lounge do a really good job, and could not fault any aspect of their service.

Rooms were comfortable and offered great views over the city.

This hotel needs very little to be added. Perfect location, clean and comfortable rooms with all the accessories you would expect from a 5 star hotel, all with a view over Bucharest. Everyone is really polite. Breakfast very good. Surely a safe bet in Bucharest.

Old "communist" hotel in the centre of Bucharest looks so-so, but inside it is real five stars hotel. Nice large rooms, very good meal and really great, rich breakfest :-). It is just a few steps from the live heart of Bucharest, so it is no problem to go to the any of tens restaurants in the city.

Stayed here for 2 nights on business. Check in was friendly. Room was beautifully furnished and well equipped. Wifi was around £3/day. Balcony looked over the city. Food in the restaurant was good if a little uninspiring. Staff were very helpful and polite. Good position - near a metro station and just a few minutes walk from the Old Town
