Unfortunately there were a lot of Covid restrictions during my visit. But the hotel is outstanding. The building is a monument reminiscent of the grand hotels of another era. Centrally located with good restaurants in the area.

Lovely hotel in an upscale and lively neighborhood. Located close to most tourist attractions in town. Hotel has attractive public rooms. Staff was very helpful and attentive. COVID rules were enforced. Our double room was nicely sized and comfortable. Amenities were plentiful and appreciated. WIFI, while free, was spotty at best. This is definitely a 4+* property, not 5* as advertised. Breakfast was plentiful but not special. A nice place to stay when in Bucharest.

Specifics: I bookended my 11 days in Romania at this hotel. One night on arrival and then five nights at the end. I stayed in a King room on both occasions. Check-in: Hassle free. There weren’t any porters on the first occasion although one did ask if I wanted assistance on my second check-in. Both front desk experiences were fine, there were no communication problems and a brief explanation of the premises and how to find my room was given. (4/5) Rooms: So this was interesting. On my first night I stayed in the “non-renovated” section of the hotel and on my second, five-night stay I was given a renovated room. Few thoughts here….. first, that’s how it should be, right? Longer stays in the modern section, abbreviated ones in the original section. Second, even the non-renovated room was decent. I kind of felt like I was in a museum but everything was functional and clean. Third, the modern room seemed literally brand new: marble walk-in shower, superb linens, plenty of outlets and excellent Wi-fi. (4/5) Service: For this reviewer, the cornerstone of every hotel visit. I’m a fairly low maintenance customer, but for some reason on this stay I needed people on multiple occasions: lost key card, advice for authentic Romanian dining, refill of the minibar, etc. Every request was met quickly and correctly. Room service was faultless, the experience at Roberto’s and (especially) the Athenee Café even better. (A special thanks to Daniella, Luisa, and Mirella for great conversation and generosity at the latter.) (5/5) COVID: Every employee was masked, no exceptions. Cleanliness was the watchword here with rooms regularly sanitized and temperatures taken on entry. I never felt unsafe at any time. (5/5) Cost: Very fair pricing for a big city. (4/5) Location: Excellent. A few minutes’ walk to the Old City and close to a several museums. I even walked to the Enescu museum and Casa Ceausescu from here. (5/5) Summary: In this post-COVID travel world the hospitality industry has had to adjust more than any other and this hotel rose to the occasion. Add to this perspective the fact that at my departure Romania was dealing with the highest COVID caseload since the beginning of the pandemic and it makes the experience all the more impressive. I would stay again without hesitation.
