Excellent hotel with great views and food

Pros: Close restaurants, great restaurants
Cons: No free Internet, very expensive laundry
Very friendly hotel close to the city center and within walking distance of all the major attractions. Get a room as high up as possible for the great view of the city. I even found free overnight parking within 3 blocks (much better than the 10RON/hr at the hotel parking lot). The concierge staff were very helpful in suggesting places to go. The only possible downside is that it's next to the University square where many of the demonstrations against the current (July 2012, Basescu) administration are occurring. However, I never felt unsafe. That same square plays host to several coffee shops (with free internet) and a free outdoor summer classical concert series.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet, Poor breakfast, expensive parking, poor service, extremely unsafe
I have traveled a lot in Europe and stayed in many quality and average hotels. For the price I found it disappointing. Parking was over priced and the staff was rude. That day it was raining and turned into ice. The walk ways and the parking lots where iced up and even the walkway to and from the main entrance of the hotel. Others and myself slipped entering and exiting. When I asked about the safety issue, I was brushed off with a rude comment and gesture. I have stayed in the same hotel here in the US of A and found the quality of service far apart.

Grand Experience

I was very please by the Hotel Staff and the Quality of the rooms. The In-Hotel resturants where both Elegant and affordable. Everyone was very helpful, and the 21 Club (21st floor) was a relaxing and very well staffed, as was, the Health Center on 22nd floor. This was my first trip to Bucharest and I was never happier. I will not stay Anywhere Else but InterContinental when I am in Bucharest. Notes: Try to affoid mini bar, it is more cost effective to go to bar and order drinks or pay the extra $ for the 21 club. Room Service is 24/7 and very nice menu. The last is plan on 15% more on ur budget, the travel guides are low on the day cost.

Consistently Excellent over the past 7 years!

I last stayed at this property in September 2009 but can attest to its consistent quality in every regard. I usually only stay a night or two upon return from another area of Romania however I have stayed a couple of times a year for seven years. Front desk and room service is quality staff is bilingual cleanliness is impeccable and location location location. Cabs are available at all times and the bellman will call one for you but you will want to walk around this fun and busy area of Bucharest and enjoy it history and culture. The buffet style breakfast is quality and additional items are available on demand just ask. The mini-store is pricey so I suggest nearby locations. Understand that the propertys rating means items are costly but the quality is there. Rooms are spacious and every room has a balcony and view. You will not want to get out of their heavenly beds. There is a casino onsite and one across the street though I never visited it. The US embassy is around the corner. Lots of shopping nearby both mall and boutique. No complaints after 7 years!

Nice Place

The location is excellent. The staff is helpfull. The rooms have amazing views. Very close to eveything. Rooms are nice. Greatprices for roo service. I just have the feeling that the hotel need a renovation. Everything is nice, but not new. So, if they do a renovation, this will be an even better hotel.

Great Hotel

Wonderful rooms and very helpful staff. Breakfast in the morning is worth the money. Had a great view of the center of the city, could even see the Parliment building. Will stay there again if I return to Bucharest.
