“Hotel bun..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

A nice typically hilton hotel which is well situated in district 1.
A spacious reception with very helpful and friendly staff.
Good size rooms we had 349, very comfortable bed, good TV, proper working wi fi.
Bathroom a little tired with scratches in the bath and small areas of dirty grouting, however the maid kept it spotless.
One big grumble was the air con, it was in the high 20's during our visit and the room was like a sauna (the air con did nt appear to cool the room at all).
Breakfast was the usual good standard with a chef for pancakes, eggs etc, fresh fruit, cereal and the hot selection you expect.
We had the weather to sit outside which is a nice area but noisy (not the hotels fault of course just city centre traffic).
Overall a safe bet in Bucharest the hotel is in a decent area of the city, (we felt completely safe walking around).
It has all the usual Hilton touches, along with very friendly staff.
I would stay again.

Room Tip: Check the air con is working!!

I've stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, we paid for the executive floor and it was worth it. rooms are big and clean and well equipped. the bad point is that the air-con was very weak, we tried to play with its control but failed to increase its power. The hotel is very central so you can get easily to any part of the city. we used taxis, it's very cheap (compare to western Europe).

I had doubts about which hotel to choose, the Hilton or the Radisson. and I'm glad we chose the Hilton. As it's more exclusive and classy, and the atmosphere is more business and luxury. We went to the Radisson, few times. The Radisson has a good combination of business & pleasure due to his outdoor pool, but the guests of the Radisson are mostly gamblers and I didn't like it.

Stayed May 2014, traveled with family

This is an older hotel (about 100 years old) taken over by Hilton. It is very well maintained and typically a Hilton with comparable services. The location is very accessible to old town, some beautiful churches and other architectural wonders and near to some great restaurants. Rooms were clean, large and well maintained. It is missing a little store so if you want anything it is a trip out of the hotel. No gift shops either. Has a lot of historical notions which are quite interesting. All in all a nice place.

We only got to spend one night this time, but from the moment we checked in to this convenient, central location, near plenty of restaurants, beautiful sights, and shopping our chcek in & out and stay experience was top notch. Being a Hilton Honors member, I was greeted with a professional, courteous wholehearted welcome. The executive lounge was excellent, the day time attendant was excellent. We will be back for a longer duration to better explore Bucharest

The hotel is centrally located, but the view from most of the rooms of the Hotel is not that great. The main reason being the hotel/ building is not very tall. You can get a glimpse of the third largest ( area wise) building in the world from some of the rooms.

We were given a nice double room which was fairly large and looked good. Overall there is nothing much to complain about the hotel perse. The morning breakfast is acceptable for a five star hotel.

The lobby is just about okay. The reception ( i.e. area) is not up to five star standard level.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the upper floor giving a view of square in fron of the hotel
