One night in Bucharest

Posted Jan 24, 2015
Pros: Centrally located
Cons: Staff education regarding travelers needs
Disappointed about room choice. Hotel was going through some renovations and the repair crew was working diligently through the night. Many empty rooms were available on a different wing but the receptionist " did not think I would want a quite room" wondering if she was thinking at all?

Clase to othe mejor attractions in the city. They booked me the trip to Bran Castle (Dracula Castle) in full day trip that also stops to see other castles like Peles and the city of Brasov. Well recomended tour.

Meets, but does not exceed, expectations

Posted Dec 23, 2014
Pros: Location, location, location. One of the best hotel breakfasts in the world. Great people-watching. Best hotel concierge I have ever met.
Cons: More of the staff could be more bought in to exceeding rather than merely meeting expectations.
Location: In the absolute heart of the city. Theaters and concert halls and the national art museum within 5 minutes walk. 12 minutes walk to "Old Town").
The Athenee Palace is the most famous hotel in Bucharest, and it is not hard to see why. It is utterly central, diagonally across the street from the former royal palace, and for a century anyone who is anyone in that city has passed through the elegant lobby. The breakfast is among the best in the world, and certain staff members (chief concierge Vasile, Daniela the daytime floor manager at breakfast) are everything one would expect at a grand hotel. Conversely, the rooms meet but in no way exceed standards for a good hotel, and most of the staff, while quite professional, are merely that. Beds are excellent, desk chair is comfortable, all the mod cons are there, but the rooms lack the character that can now be found at some of Bucharest's boutique hotels. Everyone gets there job done well, but most without enthusiasm and without going that extra mile. Again, there is a contrast to some of Bucharest's boutique hotels where you feel like the staff are a team continually striving for excellence (while, conversely, I don't know a hotel where the staff are as uniformly competent and professional: they may be on autopilot, but the flight is smooth).

sehr edles Stadthotel

Posted Nov 4, 2014
Pros: Die Lage und die Zimmergröße
Cons: Das Bad ist recht klein und für so ein Hotel eher einfach
das Athenee Palace Hilton in Bukarest ist schön zentral gelegen und bietet eine äußerst komfortable Ausstattung. Das Frühstücksbuffet ist wirklich gut und abwechslungsreich. Die Zimmer sind nicht top modern, jedoch groß und sehr komfortabel. Das Bad ist dafür eher klein und für so ein Hotel eher einfach. Das Personal ist freundlich und hilfsbereit. Insgesamt hat mir das Hotel sehr gut gefallen

Great building, old rooms and amenities

Posted Nov 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
Nice "historical" hotel. The rooms and restroom could use a renovation. Also disappointed with the wifi fee : Bucharest is a very well connected city, paying for wifi doesn't make any sense.

Very centrally located.

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Rooms are very clean and comfortable. This was a short stay but quite enjoyable. Hotel is near city center with lots of good restaurants and shopping. The hotel is adjacent to the Atheneum and another main concert and entertainment venue. Short walking distance from the main Bucharest boulevards and high end shopping district along Calea Victoriei.
