Location is great, hotel is clean, service was bad. We booked a car rental through the hotel and they pretty much ruined our trip by canceling our booking at the last moment. AND THEN THEY DID IT A SECOND TIME!

I thoroughly enjoyed my 2N stay in this old hotel which is central to all the major attractions in the old city. After initial check-in and allocation of the corner room facing some industrial site i was moved to a lovely central room that had all a traveller could possibly need - good sized bathroom facilities, an iron and ironing...

It wasn't as big as we had imagined, but we thoroughly enjoyed our three nights here. The decor is superb and the fittings and furniture are classy and in keeping with the baroque (I think) atmosphere throughout the hotel. Breakfast was great and service was polite and personal. The bathroom in our suite was strange, with a sink that is... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind feedback. We are pleased to find out that you appreciated our location, rooms, antique furniture and breakfast. The furniture is an original furniture, made in solid wood, carefully reconditioned before the re-opening of the hotel in 2009 and some rooms have antique furniture bought from famous auction houses in Europe - in Vienna,...

The rooms are very spacious combining an antique decoration of furniture and modern bathrooms. Very clean and excellent service. The buffet breakfast is also very good although I couldn't try the food at any other time. The location is great, at a walking distance of practical everything in the center of Bucharest. I would definitely come back.

Stayed there for 3 nights in may for a business trip. Location was great. Very near to old town. But service wasn't anything to write home about. Asked for a universal adapter for plug points and was refused point blank. Not even a suggestion where i could find one. Rooms were comfortable. Cistern wasn't working initially but was fixed when...

This hotel is in great location for tourists in Bucharest. Friendly helpful staff spoke excellent english. Small touches such as manager Silviv finding us a box to ship items home & helping with train schedules, and Elana's bright smile at the outstanding breakfast, will lead us to return & refer friends.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Grand elegance is back in Bucharest." At Grand Hotel Continental you will rediscover the old dimension of luxury in the hospitality. Architectural refinement details and exceptional services are dedicated to the elite clientele. We have restored the atmosphere of XIXth century, we have added the XXI-century technology and we have customized all services to create a unique and memorable experience for each guest. 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
