This is absolutely the hotel I would choose again if going to Bucharest. I arrived at 8 in the morning by train and got my room immediately, as it was already empty. Should be obvious, but not all hotels will bother. It was a large, clean, high-ceilinged room in an old building. I don´t know about the rooms in the main building. Very quiet, as it is in a small side street, but still a very convenient location. Very competent, helpful English-speaking staff at the reception. Breakfast OK, I did not miss anything. If you want more coffee, ask for it.

It is a pleasant little hotel in the hart of Bucharest . The best thing was the quiet in the morning but it was a problem , some works in a nearby building but in the night it was wonderfully silence . They have no restaurant with music. In Romania some hotels with restaurant can be very noisy because of weddings and other events with very loud music. Here is no music at all. They have some rules about eating in the room . It is not at all pleasant. Be aware and eat in another place .Read the conditions in the map near the Tv set . If you obey to this rule is will be a very pleasant stay because the room is very clean. I think they have a very good level quality per price.

This was not a good experience. The only reason I'm giving it a 2 out of 5 rating is because I had a $100 voucher (discount) from Expedia. The elevator wasn't working. Breakfast was bland... and you can only eat downstairs. If you try to have something delivered to your room, you have to personally go downstairs to get your food. Plus they will charge you extra money to have housekeeping clean up after you have eaten. If a guest stays in your room for more than a couple of hours, they will charge you at least 30 Euro. None of these rules were explained to me when I checked in, nor was it mentioned on Expedia.

Like I said... skip it.

Top features - very helpful staff, nice quiet off-street-but-near-the-center ambience

Tips: Ask for the larger rooms, i.e the x01's .. worth the few extra lei, the small rooms are ok but after 3-4 days a bit claustrophobic

Negatives... breakfast is very simple, fresh bread, grocery-store packet cheese, yogurt but pretty good granola. (The Coffee however, is *excellent*. ) The Wifi is also a bit flaky, but it is free and when working, working well.

All in all a very good value for a home-away-from-home in Bucharest.

We have travelled all over the world, and this hotel experience ranks as possibly our worst experience ever! At checkout, we were "mugged" by a vicious hotel manager. We were forced to pay 20 euros for "eating in our room", and 20 euros for two towels that had gotten a little dirty but would have cleaned up fine in the laundry. The nasty manager showed us the "rules" that said no eating in room and no using towels for makeup. One morning my wife wasn't feeling well so I brought her breakfast to the room, and another time we bought a few goodies at a local farmers festival (pastries, etc). Its not like we cooked or anything, just snacks! When we disputed the charges, the woman became abusive, screaming at us, and actually THREW the towels at us! We've NEVER been treated like that ANYWHERE!
In addition, there was some major construction being done on the roof right over our room, that made it absolutely impossible to be in the room all day long, including Saturday. Since we had just arrived from the US, we really needed some quiet nap time, and it wasn't even remotely possible.
The breakfast was uninspired, same yuck every morning (terrible bread, stale cheese, grissely salami...). The room had a tiny little tube TV from Ceaucescu's days, and the toilet seat was so poorly attached you had to do a balancing act.
Oh, other than that, location was OK, but there are many other alternatives nearby, so save yourself the pain and go elsewhere.

Room Tip: Make sure you are not any where near the construction projects!

I really liked the MichelAngelo - the staff were freindly and they had made a real effort to make the food and the room comfortable. Top marks.

The breakfast was lovely and recognizably familiar. Very welcome. The host spent time with the guests and very helpful with getting about and finding good restaurants etc. Lovely.
