    Really good comfortable bed, good air conditioning, clean bathroom, LCD TV, free Wifi internet and good breakfast. Very good hotel.

    Table in the room is not good for working. Too small, too low. Design of the room is like chateau style. I personally prefer modern design.

    The hotel is at a very convenient city spot, very close to the Old City and many monuments, museums, etc. The hotel building itself is really unique and my room was spacious, comfortable and stylish. I especially enjoyed the robe, iron, umbrella and free tea/coffee that were available in the room. Finally, i strongly suggest that travelers who really want to relax should try the aromatherapy treatment at the hotel's spa. Overall a great experience!

    Without asking for it, we were upgraded to an apartment.

    The concierge services were not at the level I expected for a hotel of this quality.

    The rooms are great and so is all the hotels' furniture and design. Also great location and very kind and helpful personnel. Ideal for some days in the city.

    The breakfast that was à la carte wasn't very convinient but it was probably because there were few guests at the time.

    The location was very good, interior decoration of the hotel [lobby, stairs, walls] was very interesting also ; the room was nice & bathroom had glass walss and I really liked the sink design; breakfast - very good. The staff was also prompt & helpful (needed a rasor kit + toothbrush - I got them immediately in my room].

    Works were carried on at the spa at the time of my visit [but these things happen, so no harm done]

    Very good

    The hotel had a luxurious look in the Reception areas and the dining areas. My room also looked very nice and was always clean and neat - including the bathroom. The breakfast was excellent and the staff in the breakfast room were always attentive. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bed linen was excellent quality. The room was quiet and well insulated against noise.

    The reception staff left a little to be desired... The room was small and the shower leaked over the floor, so I asked for a different room, however they did nothing about it except dry it every day. It is extremely annoying when one stands in cold water in socked feet. For a double room, there was only one chair and one vanity stool... So nowhere to sit for a second person and enjoy the room. The bathroom also was not well designed, and the handbasin, while being a very interesting design, was not practical. The water took a long time to become hot because of the design of the tap and outlet, and even in the shower, it was not hot enough, and for a bath was luke-warm after filling the bath. The tea making facility was ill conceived and reduced the space even more.

    Practically everything. Great location in Bucharest. Fantastic room. Excellent people. I travel 300 days a year and the bottom line is: the best value for money ever!

    Excelent Hotel. Friendly staff and very good service. We got us a Jr. suite room, it was luxury: good taste, great bed and nice bathroom. Hotel has a great location. Its main restarurant is very good; me and my wife had dinner there on the first night and it was a fantastic exprience.

    Bucharest is a nice city with a very busy "old town section", with many restaurants and pubs. Stay away from its most famous restautant, which all it has is a beutiful facade, but service is slow and food is bad. It has become a tourist spot. It is really disapointing. Now, if you want to enjoy a real good traditional meal, go to restaurant Varta, you will enjoy it.
