The staff was very nice, the uniforms they were wearing very professional. and the room was clean. The food in executive lounge was very good and the selection of drinks was also great. I did appreciate the upgrade to the junior suite.

Hotel's Favorite
We moved to this hotel after spending a few nights at the Hilton Garden Inn in Old Town. Our experience between the two hotels were like night and day. The minute we walked in here we knew we'd made the right choice in leaving the other hotel. The hotel itself is beautiful, the staff is professional and attentive the moment you walk in the door. We were upgraded to the Presidential Suite which was outstanding, very spacious with a view of the square. The executive lounge offered a very good selection of breakfast items in a quiet setting. The hotel is ideally situated to explore the city. There are some really good restaurants close by, and the small coffee shop/restaurant downstairs was pretty good.

Hilton in Bucharest is not only located smack in the center of town, it is immersed in culture. Within a few steps there is the Athnee Palace, a magnificent building that is home to Romanian opera house and musical performances of diverse genre. In appearance,while the lobby has been redone, some common areas show that it is sort of an ageing queen-after all, the building is over 100 years old. But it lacks nothing in comfort, appearance and service. Rooms have been upgraded, but lack full connectivity. If I remember correctly, there are no ports for USB charge. It is a large hotel, with multiple meeting rooms, capacity for 900 guests. They have an specious Executive room that serves breakfast, and in the evening, light dinner and beverages. While the staff was in general very good, we would like to recognize Marius for his attentive service and knowledge of the area. The view from the lounge is magnificent. And before a decadent meal, do visit the gym and the spa--absolutely refreshing. We dined at Cafe Athnee and liked their preparations. Transylvanian Fried eggs - the trick is medium flame and light oil! For dinner, we liked their Seabass, grilled to perfection. We also tried their restaurant—excellent meals, particularly their brunch offerings. Room rates average $175. If it is available, we would recommend you upgrade to Executive level. While there are numerous hotels in the area, we think Hilton maintains its reputation for quality-service, comfort and location.

Centrally located in the heart of the city , the hotel is easily accessible to most parts. The hotel is actually a 100 year old palace that's been renovated by the Hilton and converted into a hospitality property. During my four night stay there I did observe the following : 1. The pool area is very small and could be better . The restaurant is good but serves pretty the same b/fast fare every single day. This may be good for those maintaining a consistent diet or trying to, but otherwise it could get monotonic. 2. Rooms are spacious and nice , but the beds are a little uncomfortable. I'd have expected better considering its a Hilton property. Despite these, some of the clear positives are the service which is good, location being central, well equipt rooms, and although I didnt use it they had well appointed banquet halls for events. The only minus with that is that they dont seem to have a time curfew for the music and one night it was blaring till very late and easily audible on the first two floors directly above it. This is disturbing for guests. I hope the Hilton will take these feedback into consideration and work towards a better customer experience. From happy to a delighted customer means fixing these few loose ends.
