More than pleased with this beautiful hotel within walking distance to many attractions. The rooms are large and furnished with lovely antiques. Get the breakfast, it has a huge selection. Staff is very friendly but most can not speak fluent English. They need a concierge for tourists that speaks English. Front desk staff did not understand our questions and gave...

The location is great, right in the middle of the city. The building is beautiful and still has some interesting architectural details. Everything else is just outdated, mismatched and odd. It is a shame in fact that such a beautiful building was filled with gaudy furniture which does not really belong to any particular style. It looks like they had...

A perfectly located beautifully elegant hotel. We booked direct and were offered a good price, I also let them know that the trip was a 50th birthday treat for my partner. Upon check in we could't have asked for a nicer room with beautiful art nouveau antique furniture. The bathroom was spotlessly clean the bed linen and towels all of...

We stayed in Grand Hotel Continental for two nights from April 2 to April 4, 2017. We arrived in a Sunday to the hotel, with a prepaid voucher from a local, quite known agency. First, the receptionist tried to convince us that this is not a paid voucher but just a booking confirmation, and charged our credit card with 350...

Lighting is simply the worst, impossible to put make up on Would not recommend, as all the grandeur is in the hall It extremely overpriced for what it is, it's a joke really,...

We stayed here for a week whilst visiting our friends in Bucharest. Although the hotel is very lovely - it is lacking in atmosphere and is very, very quiet. I think I would have preferred a busier hotel - more lively. But the hotel rooms are lovely - the beds provide a fantastic nights sleep - staff are very helpful...

The Grand Hotel Continental feels like a traditional old-world luxury hotel. It is very conveniently located right between the Revolution Square and the University Square. The Grand Hotel Continental is one of the old palaces that are abundant on Cale Victoriei. We stayed at Grand Hotel Continental for five days and were overall very pleased with our choice. The rooms...

We had a lovely 3 night stay at the hotel and were immediately wowed by the hotel's elegant features. Our room on the 1st floor was beautifully furnished and quite spacious. We paid extra for the buffet breakfast which was of a very good standard, particularly the eggs benedict/florentine served. The location of the hotel is ideal to explore the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Grand elegance is back in Bucharest." At Grand Hotel Continental you will rediscover the old dimension of luxury in the hospitality. Architectural refinement details and exceptional services are dedicated to the elite clientele. We have restored the atmosphere of XIXth century, we have added the XXI-century technology and we have customized all services to create a unique and memorable experience for each guest. The Grand Hotel Continental is located on Calea Victoriei, a place full of history, the center of Bucharest high life since the 1800s. The building was built in 1886 by the plans of two known architects Mr. Enil Ritten Forster and I.I. Rasnovanu in German Renaissance style. It was first called "Otelul" and it was built where the old "Broft Hotel" (property of the businessman Menahem Elias) was before. Half a century later it took the Grand Hotel Continental name. The building has passed through a recent restoration, preserving the same classic structure and details. ... more   less
