“Classic 5 star”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

In the recent years Bucharest has seen the opening of more fancy and/or more luxurious hotels than the INTERCONTINENTAL. But the INTER -. which was the first 5 star in town some decades ago - still remains my favourite. The wellness center on 22nd floor as well as the Club Lounge on 21st floor offer spectacular views of Bucharest.
Excellent price/quality ratio.

The Intercontinental offers all of the standard expectations for a higher level, business type of hotel. Rooms are well appointed. The beds are comfortable and the views are probably one of the best in Bucharest. Although the air conditioning can be controlled in the room, the lowest temperature that can be set is 18C. We prefer the room to be cooler at night and especially after sightseeing on a warm day.

The indoor rooftop pool, bar, exercise area was impressive and offered great views. The exterior of the hotel and immediate surrounding need some attention. The location of the hotel is a short walk to the old town area (10 minutes), but does not have any restaurants within a block or two of the hotel.

Very unlike other Intercontintal Hotels we stayed at. I guess the doorman didn’t like the way we looked since he wouldn’t help with our luggage but walked right by us to help other people he presumably knew. Front desk wasn’t much friendlier. Rooms were good size and clean. Conserage seemed to be the only friendly person in the staff. Internet was about $18.00 a day. Sidewalks in front of the hotel were all broken up.
Hotel needs a refurbishing badly.

Stayed at this Hotel during busines travel 5 nights in May. Built ~40 years ago the hotel is very well maintained. However the hotel keeps the style of those years. Excellent location in the middle of the city with wonderfull view. Close to many theatres, and the re-vamped "old city". Excelent attention from the very helpfull personnel; breakfat good includes local food on top of normal Intercontinental menu, but without variation (same each day). On the down side they don't have a bussiness centre (just the few computers with printers and internet access).

Well.. not totaly for free of course, but almost.. if u calculate what u get per euro (or lei). The hotel was built in the 70' and that fact makes it one of the newest in Bucharest. It has a great view from upper floors and its location is the best: above University square, National Theater, metro station and Nicolae Bulevard. A max 10 minutes of walking is sufficient to get you to Unirii mall or, if you want, to the huge Parliament Palace. The hotel itself is superb: rooms are rather big, warm (You wont feel the very cold weather outside) and stylishly decorated. Beds are comfy, bath rooms are exactly what you expect from that kind of hotel. Breakfasts are delicious and varied. You can find almost all the information you need to know about touring the city in the reception.
Inter is considerd expensive in Bucharest, but you won't find such in Western Europe. Not in this price however.

We stayed on a business floor. The rooms are big, cozy and as written, a little dated in style
The hotel is spotlessly clean. They clean the room several times a day.
The service was great. From front desk to housekeeping.
Great location in the heart of the city.(the only problem was the noise of the protesters in the near square, but you don’t hear them if you keep the window close)
If you have access to the private lounge on the 21st floor, don’t miss it. it offers complementary snacks and drinks. Recommended both for meetings and nice dinner snacks

Just outside the lobby I got asked if I wanted to join a party of prostitutes staying in one of the rooms. I had visions of waking up missing a kidney. Don't stay here if you're on a real business trip, only if you're into monkey business. The staff is mostly fine although the guys at the door won't get you a taxi you have to go the line down at the street. I like Bucharest and Romanians are hard working and highly educated -- but this one is a throwback. Needs a renovation and a serious attitude adjustment.

Room Tip: The pool is pretty small so if you want to swim laps this ain't the joint for it.
