Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The mall is excellent, BUT my review is about the VODAFONE store in the mall. Avoid it like a plague:
We arrived into Romania Dec 1st 2021, at 6am. We stopped at Vodafone store later that morning to purchase prepaid mobile service. We were told that the prepaid service plan for mobile is valid for 28 days, which we thought was good enough as we were leaving at 1am the 29th.
To our surprise we received a message on the 26th that our service ends the 27th. Took a taxi to the mall, and asked for an explanation, the lady checked our phone numbers and said that the service started on Nov 30th. I showed her our passport that was stamped at 6am the 1st to no avail, I talked to the manager, and when I asked him how come the service started one day before we arrived into Bucharest he yelled at me that I was not supposed to see the information on the screen. Interesting that I was chastised for seeing my contract, and he told me that the only choice is to pay for another 28 days. Seems they sold me a used sim and number. I asked for a customer service number where I can talk to Vodafone customer care representative, and they gave me one. I tried it but seems my only options were 1 to add more money, 2 to add more money etc. I had the hotel reception listen, in case I misunderstood, and they confirmed that Vodafone does not have customer care option. I went online and tried all the numbers they posted, same results: give us your money, and No, we do not care. I even filed an online complaint. 2 weeks later I have not received an acknowledgement.
In all my previous travels in Europe I have used Orange or TMobile, and the service was excellent. This time I went with Vodafone, because it was the first mobile service store in the mall, and our Romanian is not that good to inquire. Learned my lesson, and already informed my friends to avoid VODAFONE like a plague as it is not a company that cares about their customers, and they have no qualms ripping you off, and the biggest proof is that they do not have a customer care number where you can talk to an employee, and they do not respond to their website contact form. To prove my genuine experience, I still have their phone numbers, and the message that my service ended on the 27th, not the the 28th.

Foodcourt is without design!!
A lot of people in this mall, very crawdy, many custimers, but the mall is just if you really need something from here or of you leave in that area.
Too many people in weekend in the mall, is like that people from that part of bucharest like it very much, that's why on weekend is too crawdy.
I don t like to buy from this mall and i don t recomand it!

Samsung Afi is horrible. Customer Service is terrible. Refused to refund a product i bought 4 days before without explanation. Did not even look at the product. Told me NO. Ilegal and terrible place. Do not buy from them. The Manager has a terrible atitudine. Don't even know who made him a Manager. Horrible place. Avoid !!!!! Buy products from a place that respects their customers.

A huge shopping mall with a broad selection of shops like Victorias Secret, C&A (not been in the UK for years like seeing an old friend) and many others. There is also a vast food hall, cinema, children's play area and even an ice rink. We had an enjoyable shopping experience and even found time for lunch at Taco Bell. Highly recommended that you visit this shopping mall.

Having visited the malls on numerous visits to Bucharest, it is always nice to come back.
While the mall was emptier this time, it was still enjoyable to walk its long avenues, window-shopping (and getting some supermarket supplies, too).
Notice that most taxi drivers outside the mall are scammers and you are better off getting a taxi online or using the taxi dispatcher machine near the main entrance to get one.

I must admit that Afi Palace cotroceni is more than a shopping mall. It offers execellent natural day light view, wonder food selection n all major brands including my favourite shop, Le Cashmere Heritage, for high end Cashmere scarves & silver jewelry. I fully recommend this place for quality over quantity.

I visited this mall last year on my last trip to Romania and really enjoyed the hours I spent wondering around and shopping. However this time around after no more than 20 minutes of browsing I was surrounded by 3 mall security guards and asked to leave.I asked for a reason and all they would say is the mall management didn't want me in the building. I assume this is because I have a mohawk and wear nu rock boots sometimes. They clearly have a specific "look" of who they want in this mall and anyone who doesn't fit it is removed by the security. I looked exactly the same last year and had no problems so clearly this mall is not wanting to welcome tourists, non romanians and those who like to be themselves and look how they want.Avoid this mall there are better places to spend your money

Very big shopping Center - you really need a whole day here. Very nicely designed, has a rollercoaster ride and ice skating rink in the middle of the center. It is ideal to take kids and has slides too. Has all the major brands and a big Auchan Supermarket (quite cheap) too and a big food court. Worth the visit if you like shopping!
