The rooms are a bit "dated" but are spacious, very clean and well maintained. The staff are superb. It's the best service I have received in a hotel, second to none and so I will definitely return to the Crystal Palace when next in Bucharest

Immediately upon check in we received an upgrade to executive rooms. Rooms are spotless and spacious. Included breakfast was ample and delicious. All staff were immensely helpful and friendly, especially Floren, the bell boy and the dining room manager. They offered helpful information about sites to see and how to get there. Would stay there again.

I arrived quite late in the evening and was welcomed with such hospitality that was incredible ! The GM offered to show me restaurants in the area even though he had finished his shift and had his son with him. I ate at the hotel and the food was incredible and cheap. The next morning the GM had a map...

We stayed for 1 night and were welcomed by every single member of staff. Everybody seemed to genuinely care if we were having a nice time. The food in the restaurant is brilliant and I would recommend the ribs and parfait for dessert!

This hotel is a perfect example of Complete failure of the hotel business and standards. Firstly I have to admit - rooms were clean. Only one bath robe but that's nothing comparing to rest. Bar is closing whenever the manager decides to. So you can never guess what time to be there in order to enjoy a drink or two....

Always customer focused, always free upgrade (whenever possible), nice present during your stay, very attentive personnel. Although not close to center, still in a good neighborhood with lots of dining options around.

Hotel at the entrance of the city with facilities: a spa & a fitness room. The hotel is located at 15min from the Old City by car, with a tramway stop nearby. I didn't try the restaurant as it seemed quite impersonal.

I'd give 3.5 stars if I could. Clean and nice accessories, but feels kind of old. If you'll get room turn to the main road, you'll probably could be bothered by noise of cars. In my room the shower was a bit weak.
