Recent guest reviews
This month a was with my wife for a 3 days city break in Bucharest. We accomodate at Intercontinental hotel situated in center of the town. We accomodate fast and the belboy helped us with luggage. We reserved the room with street view. The services was excelents and the staff was very amiable with us. The breakfast include a lot of food and i can say that the hotel is realy a 5 star hotel and was a good choice for us.
My wife and I have just spent 4 nights here and cannot praise it enough. A beautifully run hotel with highly professional staff throughout. We couldn't have been better looked after. Very comfortable and quiet room and the hotel is well located too.
I was staying at the hotel for two nights before flying home. It's clearly a Bucharest institution and journalists watched the 1989 revolution unfold from its balconies. It has the usual trappings of a five star hotel-porters, concierge etc. Firstly, the room. See photo, it certainly looked imposing, with its walnut furnishings and helpful tea and coffee facilities as well as one of those ridiculous Nespresso things (some instructions on how to operate it would be nice. I had to go on the web to find out!). The bed had a major flaw in my view. There is a narrow strip of wood that juts out as part of the bed head so when I sat up in bed to read the back of my neck was against this forcing my head down a little! Also, the pillows were long thin things which had no substance at all. There is however a pillow menu. The bathroom wasn't really five star at all. There is a shower which is just over the bath. The single control operates on two levels-you turn it left/right to make it hotter or colder and pull or push for intensity. This is harder than it seems and getting the right heat and intensity was a little tricky. Personally, I think a five star hotel should have a walk in shower (then again, I wasn't really paying five a star price for the room). The toilet blocked once which necessitated much remedial action on my part (I'll pass over that). Staff were friendly though. I had an indifferent gin and tonic in the lobby bar but didn't eat in the hotel. The real boon of this hotel are it's balconies which afford great views across Bucharest (see photo) Also, finding it is never a problem-just look up!
I had a bright, quiet room on the 10th floor with a nice view of Bucharest. Though dated, the room was very cozy and comfortable. Like all Intercontinental Hotels in Europe the maximum heating temperature was too low for my liking. The hotel immediately gave me a Dyson heater which was excellent. I needed a car with driver and this was immediately arranged by the concierge office who were very helpful. I don't like to eat a large breakfast and was able to get a small breakfast at the bar. The food at the hotel was excellent and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Like at the airport, one can order a taxi on a machine in the lobby. I never had to wait long. The hotel is very close to the lively old town with all the nice restaurants. I used the pool which was large enough to swim in. I would have preferred it to be a tad warmer but it was bearable.
Stayed one night on business. Hotel was as usual efficient clean and professional. The staff were very helpful and polite. The room was clean and had all the amenities required for someone on a business trip.
I’ve been in this hotel for a one-day conference. At one time, I was reading a book on a coach on the first-floor lobby. Two staff came up from a room, speaking loudly to each other. They saw me but did not moderate their voice. One of them walked by me, looked at me and did not salute me. I’ve been in lower hotels around Europe but the staff always saluted the guests. Dear Manager, please educate your staff.
This hotel is well located, at walking distance from restaurants and city centre. Rooms are bit outdated (furniture) but still nice and full of comfort, and showing a high standard. I was allocated a nice room on the club floor. Service is excellent. In the bar or room service, staff is very friendly and well trained. Excellent breakfast! Definitely return to this beautiful hotel!

Part of the IHG hotels alliance, this hotel is everything one can expect from a quality 5 star hotel. Room was large, beds comfortable, and the balcony offered nice views. NOTE: the mini-bar was refilled daily, all inclusive in the room price. Spa was terrific!
