First of all, this hotel is outstanding, It's classy. The location is great. The staff is very helpful. The breakfast is very good and dinner was delicious. Here are a couple of suggestions that may make your stay even better. First, I would recommend upgrading from a standard to a deluxe room. The difference in price isn't that much and... More

Was just there for a night, but the staff was very friendly and helped us plot out our sightseeing. Tried to get in to the spa, but unfortunately did not have any appointments (but when we went to go visit it, no one was there?) Room was cozy -- great shower head, but hate that they don't have curtains as... More

Tried to rebook and after speaking to 6 members of staff for a week, eventually received an offer double than Booking.com. Customer service and a professional approach is not a priority here. Will never go back.

It'a a vintage hotel with modern facilities, frondesk staff is very professional and nice. Better cleaning would be welcomed ( even under beds- I had to pick up some small stuff ); Interesting neighborhood , good restaurant. Wifi had some problems at first floor.

I spent two nights at the Grand Hotel Continental. It was a truly grand experience. From the kind staff member who helped me park my car, the welcoming front desk staff members, the knowledgeable concierge, the well-appointed and clean room and the delicious breakfast -- everything was excellent! The location was perfect -- minutes from the Old Town area. I... More

Loved this hotel...perfect for a romantic getaway! Breakfast buffet was amazing and the majority of staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Only negative was when paying the bill for drinks in the bar the waiter slapped the bill on the table saying 'service not included'...as if we didn't know that in a 5 star hotel 😬!! This made us feel... More

This is a beautiful grand hotel in the centre of Bucharest. We stayed here as a family of four for three nights in October 2016. The rooms are ornate, luxurious and very comfortable, the staff impeccably polite. We didn't eat at the hotel so have no idea what breakfast or other meals are like.. but suspect they'd be rather good.... More

I was in Room 312 - beautifully appointed. Everything rather grand, lots of marble, and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was included in the room price, and was buffet style with lots and lots of wonderful things to eat. I also ate in their cafe/bistro - absolutely great food and service. I highly recommend the Grand Hotel Continental!!

The hotel is splendid and you could see it from the entrance. Nicely furnished and good sized rooms. Big modern bathrooms. We were impressed by the good restaurant, as well. We would definitely recommend it, as it is a classy hotel with it's own character.

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
