InterContinental Bucharest
Ranked #6 of 169 Hotels in Bucharest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 31, 2013

This hotel is reasonably well located, has a fairly professional staff, not too bad rooms and a better-than-average executive lounge. The views from the gym / spa are incredible (which is probably the best thing one can say about the gym as it requires quite some update and new equipment).

During the past 5 years I stayed more than 50 nights (25+ visits in this hotel and never let down/left disappointed. I have also tried most of the other high end hotels in Bucharest and this one represent the best "value for money".

The service/standard remain excellent. The location is also perfect with lots of historic and beautiful buildings/museums/cultural places places to visit withing few minutes walk. Metrostation is 2 minutes walk away and system highly recommended to use.

Situated in the city centre, close to shopping malls and the Old Town, this was a great hotel to stay in. The underground station was just around the corner as well as bus stops close by making it easy to go to other places in the busy capital of Romania.

As for the hotel itself it offered everything you could ask for. A great leisure centre on the 22nd floor with a well equipped gym and a swimming pool. At the reception you got excellent help and service from everyone. An example was when we left at 3 in the morning and could order a breakfast bag from the reception. The rooms where luxiorous and very nice and clean. The balcony overlooking the hustle and bustle of the city was a plus.

Staying at this hotel will ensure you a nice stay full of quality.

This was my third stay and I see no reason to investigate another property. Location, service and quality are well above average. Very friendly and capable staff. Breakfast and lunch are very good. Meeting rooms and service were also above average. I had an excellent junior suite located on the 3rd floor - corner room.

The hotel is situated at Km 0 in Bucharest. There can hardly be a better position than this.
The view is very good pretty much from any of the superior floors.

The room was clean (as expected from a 5 star hotel). The staff was very polite and provided very good service. The breakfast area was nice as well.

The TV in the room is very small, old, and the reception is poor - luckily I wasn't there to watch TV, but it was a surprise to see such a tiny thing in a 5 star hotel, especially after staying at a different 5 star hotel in Bucharest weeks earlier.

While the view is spectacular (22nd floor), the pool is small and it is guarded by gym machines.

The morning I left there was no hot water in my room therefore had to shower with cold as I would have missed my flight. It was an unpleasant experience even though I would not expect that to be standard at Intercontinental...

All in all it was an OK experience although a bit overpriced in my view.

Room Tip: High floor, ideally facing the University Plaza

Dear Guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience at InterContinental Bucharest. I am happy that our team offered you an enjoyable stay. Thank you for all the comments you have addressed, they will be considered for future actions. The gym machines near the pool area are placed there temporary, since there are some maintenance works at the gym room.

I hope you will come back soon to visit us again.

My best wishes

From the moment I checked in, the deal offers, the upgrade to the Junior Suite, that was lovely (should be fair and say that I am an Ambassador member) on the quieter side of the hotel. Excellent cleanliness and comfort. Great water pressure. Good breakfast. Maybe a little bit dated here and there, but in close striking distance to everything, I couldn't want more.
