Stayed here for two nights and it is a lovely hotel. We got a suite and the price was very reasonable and beds comfortable. It is a very nice location in a very nice part of town and a short ten minute walk to Old Town. Would highly recommend this hotel!

A classic building in great location, lovely lobby, really helpful concierge staff. Welcome champagne. We had a very large room at the front of the hotel, almost a suite. There were king single twins, the size of a double each - although we had ordered a marital bed. There were spots on the front of the hotel much of the... More

Have stayed in many hotels in Bucharest, this is probably the one I prefer the most. Historic first floor (1914) but thoroughly modern otherwise. Huge king bedded room, in new wing, all the expected amenities, tastefully done, comfy bed, lots of natural light but also black out curtains. Good AC control. Noisy construction began at 10am, and when I notified... More

We stayed for couple of nights. We were moved twice as there is some reconstruction going on on fourth floor which was quite loud. All three rooms looked very similar. One had king bed which was amazingly huge, comfy enough for three people. The other two had queen. All rooms had bathrooms with a bathtub. Don't go for the room... More
