“Good hotel in a very good area !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

(EN) The Minerva Hotel is one of the most famous hotels in Bucharest. It was one of the first hotels which suffered refurbishment after the ''89 Revolution. It has 3* and 4* rooms. I stayed in both, but i highly recommend the 4* which are part o the new wing of the hotel.
Breakfast is buffet, various and tasty. The Chinesse restaurant also offers a great choice of meals.
(RO) Hotelul Minerva este unul dintre cele mai celebre hoteluri din Bucuresti. Este unul dintre primele hoteluri Ceausiste ce a suferit modernizari dupa Revolutia din 89.Are camere de 3 si 4 stele. Am stat in ambele tipuri, insa va recomand cele de 4 stele, sunt in aripa noua a hotelului. Micul dejun este bufet, variat si gustos. Restaurantul chinezesc ofera de asemenea o selectie bogata de mancare.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

I stayed at the Minerva Hotel during my participation in a Conference. The hotel was suggested by the organizers, and therefore my general impression is not negative, but in some points it could be better. The room was comfortable, quite and clean, and the bathroom was new. Though I asked for a non-smoking room they gave me a smoking one, but fortunately it had no scent of smoke! Breakfast was good and tasty, and with a satisfying variety - though the coffee was not that good. One night I ordered a club-sandwich in the room, but they delivered it after almost an hour(!) and it was cold and rather expensive. The staff was sufficiently polite, but rather stiff- this service could improve more. The location was very good, the historical city center was in a walking distance, and fortunately it was also close to the Conference Venue. For a business trip, Minerva Hotel works just fine!

We stayed in the 3-star-room and it was ok, clean, quiet and not too small. However, beds are a bit too hard, and we had no blinds for the windows. During Spring/summer, the sun rises very early in Bucharest, so it seemed as if we had the lights on at 5.00 am. Breakfast is good, you have plenty to choose and staff is very helpful. The hotel is in a zone full of embassies, so it is a very good location, with amazing buildings to photograph.

Minerva Hotel is nicely located in Bucharest and offers one of the best locations in the middle of the city centre which is very convienient. Quiet, neat and bright rooms were just what we needed after sight seeing trips for hours. Breakfast was delicious (I fell in love with the selection of different foods ) . Hosts were reliable, and kind people that did not save any effort to make us feel at home. A superb experience!

Room Tip: Every room has its own charm!

On arrival there seemed to be some confusion over my booking. Once they eventually found it, I had booked a three-star room but the first two they sent me to had not be cleaned. And I mean towels on the floor, beer bottles etc. So I got upgraded to a 4-star one. The new room was ok, and was comfortable. The hotel is in a good enough location, near to a metro station and some shops. The main thing is the decent price.
