Check in was very fast and I was in my room withing minutes of arriving. My room was spacious with a large kingsize bed. The pillows were very comfortable and the linen was soft which I particularly appreciated by such a long stay. The bed was on the hard side but I still slept well. The bathroom was reasonable large with the shower being in the bath. The hose connection from tap to shower wasn't really long enough to raise the shower as high as I would have liked but this was only a minor problem. The breakfast area was ... large and tasteful with a large outdoor area where I was able to breakfast each morning, which in the summer weather was really enjoyable. The breakfast itself was adequate but not outstanding. I would have expected a bit more variety for vegetarians - for instance more choice of fruit. The staff were very friendly and the concierge especially was very helpfull. The main shopping area is within walking distance and even the huge parliament building where I did tour was only 30mins walk. All in all a very enjoyabel stay. read hotel review

Centrally located elegant hotel. Museums and high end shopping are all around it and old town is in 10 minutes walk distance. Really nice lobby with lively cafe and bar. Rooms functional in good condition with everything as expected from Hilton. Service is very good and polite. Taxi cheap and available anytime on order from concierge. Liked our stay in this hotel as the price was also right for the weekend stay. read hotel review

Very good hotel, solid Hilton quality

  • August 2014
I must say it's a very good hotel. I got a HH Diamond upgrade to junior executive suite on the 5th floor. Room wasn't spectacular in its design, but it was clean and quite well maintained (quite, as air conditioning wasn't working at the beginning. but technician fixed within 5 minutes). Bathroom is not too large and a bit tired, but clean. There's a balcony, which is. permanently closed. You need to sign special form in reception to get it open, what's weird. There could be also some furniture at the balcony, which was not the case. Breakfast is very ... good with excellent variety and quality. Restaurant looks nice, same as lobby and bar and there is a huge nice terrace, where you can have breakfast. Executive lounge is spacious, with a separate smoking room. It's not crowded. Happy hours with nice snacks, warm dishes and good selection of wines and spirits start at 5pm and theoretically ends at 7pm, but usually all alcohols are available by the lounge closing, so 11pm. Staff in lounge is a bit slow, so it ends up with all tables covered with empty plates and glasses. But this is the only one small disadvantage. Location is just great - 10 min walk from the old town or 1,5 EUR by taxi. It's very central, so it's also close to museums and House of People. read hotel review

I had a great experience while staying at the hotel. Staff is warm & friendly. Unlike most european hotels, room size is quite decent. However the struggle was with the breakfast, not much variety. And those who are vegetarians will only get to get potatoes, mushrooms & breads. read hotel review

In the heart of the city

  • November 2013
A typical Hilton brand hotel in the heart of the city and within a historical building which at one time used to be a palace. The hotel is walking distance to all the major landmarks of the city such as the revolution square, Lipscani historical area, university square and unirii square and is located on the famous Calea Victorei street. Being HHonors a gold member we were upgraded to an Executive room with access to the Executive lounge. The complimentary breakfast was also included as a benefit and we were given the option to either have it in the lounge ... or in the main breakfast area. The variety of the items in the main breakfast area was much large so we chose that. Being a refurbished hotel, overall the hotel furnishings seem to be a bit dated so do not expect to have '7-star' luxury in terms of the furniture, bathroom floor, carpeting etc. but it is definitely one of the best hotels to stay in Bucharest offering great value for money. read hotel review

Our favorite hotel in bucharest, because of its location, it's history, the view from the rooms and the staff. Location is the best in town, very easy to set up meeting at the café because everybody knows the place and it's very convenient. Staff is great and there is good recignization of top tiers hh status there. Rooms (espcially suite) are really nice, with everything you can except from a hilton. English bar is great for drinks, the team there is AMAZING. The business lounge is really great with a roof top balcony and a separated smoking lounge. Great selection ... of food and drinks. Love this place. read hotel review

With only a 15 minute walk to the Old Town this hotel is the perfect location to stay in Bucharest. Close to mini-markets, good restaurants and some cafes. The Hotel has 2 great restaurants/cafes in it which offer a great selection of food. The option to enjoy your breakfast in your room is fantastic too. The room-service staff is very friendly and available 24/7. The front desk staff is always happy to help out with arranging a good taxi. The rooms are big, quiet en sound-proof - an excellent stay for a busy business trip but also for a city ... break! A great choice. read hotel review
