Athenee Palace delivers just what you'd expect when choosing a five-star hotel, and at a competitive price. Our room was a standard double, and we found it to be spacious and, of course, clean. We traveled with our 6-month-old, and would definitely recommend the hotel. Staff was very helpful and professional, again as expected at this level.

This is a good Hilton, with good service and nice size rooms. The restaurants are very good and so is the location, but the hotel could be much better with a renovation to the rooms which feel a little outdated and simple. But overall a very nice Hilton property certainly much better than the average.

I only booked for Saturday/Sunday, so perhaps it was a slow time, but I got an excellent 2-room suite at a VERY low cost. Hilton awards member probably helped. This is departure point for many tours such as Dracula's castle, so very convenient for 8AM departure. Restaurant a bit limited menu and expensive compared to other locals nearby, but service...

A short weekend for R&R this past May was made even more enjoyable in this wonderful hotel. Service as always was first class and with the added perk of a room on the exec floor our stay was perfect. Hilton breakfast - what can I say - fabulous !! Warm friendly staff

A very nice and classic hotel. Breakfast offering is vast and all well prepared. Rooms are large. Try and avoid lower levels due to noise from the street and the event hall downstairs. The newly opened casino is smaller and has a more exclusive feeling than the one in the Radisson.

Central locaton, grandious places, comfortable rooms. Ideal for elegant conferences. Interior in same places oldschool (bathroom door). Free and quick wireless internet. Delicious breakfast (fresh squeezed orange, etc.), but we got once for dinner a very "medium" duck.

Historic old building well appointed, great staff and very helpful. Easy from the airport and about 30-35 RON by taxi. Executive Lounge a bit sparse and snacks / breakfast limited but otherwise recommend this hotel.
