Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
"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.

Thanks for your question, the 2 days I was there this month it was for business,. Health club and SPA had availability without any issue. I reserved a massage one day for the other which is normal. But if you can plan to organize it before going there it will be safer. The hotel is very good is an exactly opposite site from NOVOTEL.

What would you like to know about the spa? I didn’t use it but I can say that prices looked very reasonable and from my quick viewing of the spa it looked beautiful. Sorry I can’t help more! You should definitely check out the spa at Therme, just outside of Bucharest, if you like spas/swimming.
