This was definitely a 5 star hotel! Had a lovely room which was spacious and included a Nespresso coffee machine! The room had a lovely balcony area to relax upon! The bathroom was large and spacious. The lobby area was well decorated with areas to enjoy a drink in the bar area. The restaurant served a buffet style dinner and breakfast and both were delicious! The breakfast had omelettes, pancakes and waffles to order and were delicious! The hotel is located well near to the old city of Bucharest.
Stayed from April 2nd to 14th, all I can say is the room is pretty poor, borderline terrible. The room is spacious, and I get the classic concept, but things are rather old and stuffy. Breakfast are the same the entire time, housekeeper did an average job in cleaning the room - most likely overworked, it seems like just 1 person covers the entire floor. The only 5* would be the fast internet. And probably the front desk, they were helpful and professional. Although not much you can expect from them.
Very nice hotel , centrally located and friendly staff clean room nice view just try it out you will be surprised !! Walking distance from the old town where you will find a large number of pubs and restaurants ! A real forgotten pearl !!!

I had a lovely stay at the InterCon in Bucharest. The staff were all very friendly and eager to help. My flight was delayed, but I arrived in time for a late lunch at the hotel restaurant. It was very good; the food and wine were both excellent. The gym is fantastic. It's up on the top floor and has a panoramic view of the city. Your treadmill run will fly by! The gym is well-equipped and there is a pool if you prefer to swim. I had a room on one of the upper floors and had a lovely view of the Old Town. The bathroom is nicely appointed, and the furniture in the room, though somewhat dated is fine. The hotel is in close proximity to the Old Town and other sites. I highly recommend and will try to stay at the InterCon when I return to Bucharest.
Paid for a Deluxe Room (1 night), but as a Platinum IHG member was upgraded to an amazingly spacious suite with separate kitchen, lounge area, bedroom, wraparound balcony and free mini-bar. Paid a bit extra to treat myself to Club Lounge access which included food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and drinks throughout day, not to mention some pretty awesome views of the city. Everything felt slightly wasted as I was staying on my own, but thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless. Sebastian on the front desk was amazing, absolutely faultless and couldn't have been any more accommodating. Asked him for and was given a 5:30pm checkout on my final day to allow me to use my room until I needed before leaving to catch my flight home. Used the gym, pool, sauna jacuzzi on the 22nd floor which was a very pleasant experience, not least due to the panoramic views and outdoor terrace. The concierge, Catalin, was also exemplary, recommending a nice walking tour for me to take in some sights on the last day. Would go as far as saying it was the best hot and room I've ever stayed in and I've stayed in quite a lot over the years! Completely justified my IHG loyalty decision. Loved it that much, I spent more time at the hotel than exploring Bucharest itself! Lol If I could give the stay more than 5 stars I would, it was that good. Intercontinental Bucharest - you have now set the standard by which I'm now going to judge all my future hotel stays, take a bow!
This imposing hotel is very conveniently located right in the middle of Bucharest, with a metro station almost at the door and only a 5 to 10 minute walk to the bars, restaurants and clubs of the old town. There’s an Avis office in the lobby which made picking up our hire car easy. Check-in was efficient and IHG platinum status recognised with a room upgrade. The front desk staff gave us a compressive briefing about everything we might need to know about the hotel and the city. Our room was a little dated (refurbishment supposedly starting soon), but a good size, spotlessly clean, with very comfortable bed. WiFi was free (at least for IHG members) and fast, and there was a good selection of International/English channels on the flat screen TV. Despite being on a busy intersection our room was very quiet. Executive lounge was spacious with a great view over the city, and a reasonable spread of food and drinks, depending on the time of day. What rates special mention here are the staff. From porters, front desk, housekeeping, F&B and interns; everyone we encountered was exactly what you’d expect in 5 star hotel; motivated, customer focussed and polite. If I return to Bucharest I’d definitely stay here again.
What an amazing time. Check in was very fast and despite feeling like a fish out of water we were made to feel very welcome. We were given a room on the 19th floor room 1909 and this had such an great view of the city. During the day it was nice but in the evening it was AMAZING as all the Christmas lights were out lining the main road. Very little if any road noise, every room has a balcony so we left our door open a lot. The rooms are lovely, very clean, seriously comfy beds and the bathroom was the same. Plenty of wardrobe space, fully stocked mini bar and they even send someone up everyday to tell you the weather fr the following day. Breakfast was included and again i could not fault it, cereals, cakes, cold and hot food and even Gluten free bread which i didn't find anywhere else other than here. On the Sunday we woke up a tad late and had just missed breakfast in the main room but were told to go to the louge bar on the 21st Floor where there was a slightly smaller selection of food available but still very sufficient, with the added bonus of a great View. On the 22nd Floor you'll find a Pool, its not massive but its the experience because being open until 10pm meant the views across the city from the pool were out of this world. There is a Jacuzzi too to chill with a drink. 2 separate Sauna's and a steam room plus a gym with various lifting kit sufficient for a break away. You will have 1 robe in your room and will need to request another and that is what you wear to the pool. You will be given a different towel there which you hand back before you leave. Plenty of water and fruit water available. They have a Spa service where a 50 minute massage for targetting stress was around 120-150 lei which in GBP is around £30-£35. There's a casino in the basement, not being a gambler i didn't mind that it was being refurbished. Due to open late Dec 2016 Its location is literally a 10 minute walk to the top of the Old town which has tonnes of bars and food places. Its also about a 20 minute walk from the Parliament Palace which is where the Christmas market and fair is. We took a standard Taxi from the Airport to the hotel and even stuck in a bit of traffic it cost 35 lei which is around £7. I would suggest pay for the hotel before you go there rather than through a sub site like i did because the price a paid differed from what was on my booking but because we had such a great time and had zero criticisms i let it go. I joined the IHG group while i was there because i was so impressed and we are already trying to re book for New Years. Thanks to everyone at Intercontinental Bucharest
This hotel is located in the heart of the city, very close to the Old Town, and withing walking distance to just about anything really. Its a nice hotel that you can tell has a few years on it. In the cold war it was exclusively for guests from other countries exclusively, and according to an employee that remembers those days everyone used to be a spy for the communist party. The staff is excellent, so nice and helpful, very attentive, and they provide a fantastic service all around. The conference rooms are far from standard as they have to fit into the hotels unusual shape, and really whats wrong with a gigantic column in the middle of your conference space when you can walk right out onto the roof. The hotel rooms are a nice size, not huge, not small, and have what one would expect in a hotel room these days. The rooms and hallways have padded walls which reminds me of a cold war spy move and not of a hotel of today's standards. The water pressure is rather strong, and lighting is well done with control switches in logical places. The key system is a chip card system, which though modern 10 years ago, is really rather dated, and to be honest is more annoying then an old fashioned key, as you need to fiddle with the cards to get your door open or the lights on, etc. The rooms however are not very sound proof, I could here every ambulance and police car at near full volume as they went by at all hours of day\night. And i think the person above me was running in place a fair amount as I could hear that person's foot steps for hours. All in all it was a descent enough hotel, and though it has smaller rooms then say the Hilton down the street, it's location is really great, you can walk to nearly anywhere in old town in <10 min, and there is the best french coffee shop in town even closer by. I didn't try any of the restaurants or the casino, but they seemed busy enough when passing by, so that should say something.
