    Individual guest reviews

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      clean and spacious room, good location near to the center

    • Single
      10.0

      The staff were very friendly and the hotel (with its stylish art nouveau decor) was in a quite backstreet very close to the old town

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      The location was close to the metro and all the landmarks in the city of Bucharest.

      The receptionist for our two day stay was so rude, I was shocked. I have travled for 20 years and I have never encountered someone as herself so unhelpful, unfriendly and just plane nasty.

    • Single
      8.8

      Great rennovation of an old building, good service but a little way to go to reach international service level.

    • Family with children
      9.2

      It was very clean , comfortable and personals are friendly.A very good position 1

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      Very good location, beautiful and quiet room, friendly staff. ++++++

    • Group of friends
      5.0

      The location was by far the best for people who know where to go downtown, the room was big enough for massive suitcases, and the elevator was fast.

      The hotel staff was unnecessarily rude and snappy about my inquiries making my stay uncomfortable as it was felt that they wanted me and my friends gone.

    • Single
      7.8

      The location is great, a few steps to metro at the University. The hotel is price-wise well equipped, a very good choice if you don't to spend too much money for a decent room. Also the cafe / restaurant is nice to sit down a bit.

      The airport shuttle service was a regular taxi but of the expensive one. If they offer this service (3,50 Lei/km instead of 1,39!!), they should either send an own employee or work with the normal taxi companies. Really have the feeling to be cheated and that they receive comission on forwarding business. Even requesting a confirmation that somebody is picking me up was ignored and I had to call and remember.

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      Beautifully renovated old villa, right in the city center. Friendly, helpful, English-speaking staff.

      The breakfast is overpriced with 15 Euro. For what is offered, 7-8 Euro would be more reasonable.

    • Single
      9.2

      Friendly staff, Central location, good restaurant right outside the door.

      The breakfast is a bit expensive, especially given the cheap food everywhere else in the city.

    • Family with children
      9.6

      music, food, hotel and restaurant staff attitude

    • Family with children
      8.0

      The staff by far is the best thing about this hotel. The manager Vladamir, bellman Florine, and all the others were gracious, helpful, and caring. The hotel is in a great location, just a block from the Intercontinental. My wife, son and daughter shared two rooms which we booked at the last minute. The price was a little more than I wanted to pay but you won't find a friendlier staff.

      The bed was not comfortable for my back but everything worked properly including the internet.

    • Single
      9.6

      The staff were very accommodating and helped me arrange a taxi when my flight was delayed until 1am. Really the staff and location were the best things about this hotel. Food is easy to get and probably at a cheaper rate at other restaurants around the city but nothing was overwhelmingly expensive in the hotel restaurant and I ate a few meals there which were very good.

      The beds were really uncomfortable but when I asked for extra bedding they were just fine.
