We had a nice stay in this hotel... Very nice and clean, comfortable, and with spa access included! Perfect location too. If I were to come back to Bucharest, I would book for sure here again! Regarding breakfast, it is not included in the room price.

We stayed here for three days and checked out on the 1st March 2017. I have to say we enjoyed staying there very much. The service was excellent from the French guy on the front door to the lady who cooks you fresh omelette in the mornings. The room was very well decorated and the furniture was modern and the...

I was here for an event that took place in one of the dedicated rooms. Arriving at the hotel absolutely no one asked me who I was, what I was doing here... No one actually saw me enter as the staff was curios or busy with something that was happening outside. I looked for the signs pointing to the even,...

With friends we welcomed 2016 in this hotel. I am fascinated by the history of the hotel, from large well-appointed rooms and modern bathrooms. In our room was available TV, air conditioning, well-stocked mini bar, an iron and ironing table. The staff is courteous, the prices are quite high and at the lobby bar and restaurant, but worth it! I'd...

Hotel is in a great location, is absolutely gorgeous inside but the staff aren't very helpful or friendly. I booked a taxi to pick me and my girlfriend up from the airport on arrival through the hotel which was to cost 40 euros. The taxi driver was nowhere to be seen in arrivals so I had to get a taxi...

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
