    Impeccable service, modern, clean and surprisingly quiet above street level. A welcome shelter from the heat, hustle and bustle of Bucharest.

    Very good

    This hotel had nice quiet rooms, despite being next to elevator. The hotel location was excellent, a short walk to many attractions in a safe neighborhood and across the street from another casino. All around a nice place, except teh lobby was under construction. Breakfast was fantastic!!

    Lobby was under construction. Staff was not really able to coordinate anything. Business center was closed on weekends, I had to beg for permission to use executive computers on 5th floor. They had 2 big weddings going on Saturday night which was good, but loud. And when I returned at 4 am from teh casino, teh elevators were not working! Just not quite a 5 star worthy of Hilton name, if you ask me...

    Good location, within walking distance of major sites. Nice big, soft towels.

    Unable to book a massage, the entire weekend was booked when I checked in on SAT. Front desk was overloaded when I arrived.

    Very good

    The decoration of the lobby is lovely and it;s situated in a central safe neighbourhood of Bucharest.

    I had reserved a room for 2 nights but when i checked in they told me they had booked the room only for 1 night and they asked once again for my credit card. I do not know whose bleme was, the hotel's or the booking's"". I'm waiting for my credit card bill to make sure that i wasn't charged twice.

    I stayed already very often in this Hotel and the service and location are always very good. The location and the hotel services like food are excellent.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Staff in general were very helpful at the reception.

    SPA: Pool-Sauna small and run down. Dressing gowns and good towels though avalable are not offered. Disappointing for a supposedly 4-5* Hotel. Also NO PARKING (even paid) availability or services (or at least not promoted)

    We frequently visit Bucharest for businees reasons. Therefore, we are highly familiar with the quality and range of hotels in the city. Athenee Palace is by far the best in terms of service, ambiance and everything a hotel is about. The credit goes to the invisible,however highly, valuable work of people like minuta chambermaid on the 5 th floor or geta at the Lounge Business Room. They are examples of the decency and elegance this hotel represents. Highly recommended for people who adust less to the kind of Mc Donald hotels now in fashion. Athenee Palace stands out as the perfect home - hotel for people who appreciate genuine leisure and comfort
