Stayed here for work recently and enjoyed my time immensely. The rooms were comfortable, the service was great, and the breakfast was absolutely tremendous. The bathrooms, while modern, were a bit strange - I didn't understand the point of the sort of wall mounted jacuzzi jet things in the shower, and I wish there had been a shower curtain or...

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.

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
