I was in Bucharest for a business trip and i had to stay for 3 nights there. Minerva hotel has excellent location. The room was pretty small. Bathroom was nice and clean. Housekeeping did a great job. I was disappointed by Front Office staff, except for the Bell boy who was very helpful and changed the tire of the car... More

This hotel has everything; spa, in room dining, business center, bar, common and conference/party areas. It is centrally located, an accomodating staff. The down side is the decor. It is clean, but mimics most other hotels around the world. This is not to say it isn't a nice place, just very cookie-cutter.

I recently stayed in this hotel during a couple working days in town. The hotel looked fairly clean and my room was decent but the bathroom definitely shabby, basin didn't work properly and shower either, I asked for maintenance but didn't fix anything! Hotel crew was average but reception ladies were outstanding!

My normal Bucharest hotels were full while traveling for business. I was booked in into the Minerva hotel for 2 nights. The hotel itself is an older hotel, probably one of the oldest in the city, but seems to have been recently remodeled/ refashioned. It still feels rundown and shabby, but was fairly clean. The room is very basic…no kettle,... More

Two years ago I was the guest of this hotel and enjoyed my stay This time unfortunately I use Booking.com expecting no problems. What I got is a very simple room in a 4 star hotel with old bad maintained furniture, a third bed ( not requested, not required, taking space of the room being "a forced" adding). When asking...

The Minerva is a pretty decent and simple hotel located a little away from the centre of Bucharest. The property is well maintained though it does have a slight air of being from an earlier age. The rooms are clean and well looked after if a little basic and without tons of toiletries etc. The breakfast buffet is what you'd... More

This hotel is really good. It's location near city centre (1.5 km) makes it a perfect choice. Rooms are clean, the staff is very helpful and everything was ok. But despite the fact that breakfast is acceptable (not awsome) the lunch at night wasn't that of a 4 star hotel. If you improve it, your hotel could make the difference.

Rather an unremarkable hotel but the bed was comfortable and everything clean. Breakfast was very good but didn't try the restaurant in the evening. Cashpoint in the lobby and weak wifi on the 4th floor. When the traffic started at 5.30am there was no more sleep even with earplugs but I suppose the internal rooms were quieter.
