We were in Bucharest the night we came into Romania and the night before we left, as most of our travel time was out in the countryside. We stayed at Hotel Christina and ate in the restaurant both coming and going. The hotel was a reasonable walk to the down town area with all the interesting sights, but is not right in the thick of things. It was a short taxi ride to the train, a little longer to the airport.
The staff was very helpful; we used the hotel driver and car for pick up/drop off at the airport and train stations. If you don't know the Romanian language and taxi system you need to be very careful because there a lot of shady companies and drivers who over charge or drive you all over the city to run up the meter. The hotel driver was expensive, but safe and spoke some English.
The breakfast buffet was large with a good selection of fruit, cereal, yogurt, breads, eggs, and meats. There was also the usual coffee, tea, and fresh squeezed juice was provided. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent both times we ate there.
The rooms were comfortable, plenty of hot water and clean. We had nice views in both rooms. Be prepared to carry your luggage up a half flight of steps to get to the elevator and also depending on your room you might have to do a half flight from the elevator to your room. Carrying your luggage up and down stairs is common in a lot of European accommodations in my experience. If you need to have assistance, I am sure they could provide it.
