Having first come here a few years ago we decided to have a quick 3 night trip back to see a few things we missed and get some pre Brexit cigarettes. Arriving late on the first night we were welcomed by the receptionist who was as polite and efficient as ever. Thanks to the

Dear Thyll U, Thank you for choosing to stay at Athénée Palace Hilton and for taking the time to share your feedback with the Tripadvisor community. Your comments about our central location, comfortable rooms and delicious breakfast options were very much appreciated. We are also glad you appreciated our hospitable team members that are always striving to successfully meet the requirements of our guests. Your satisfaction is extremely important to us and we try hard to make sure all of our guests have a rewarding stay. From some of your comments, I have noticed that we did not manage to offer you a memorable experience and I apologize for not delivering the high standard you rightly come to expect when staying at a Hilton hotel. I am deeply sorry to read that you were disappointed about the check-in process. Please rest assured that I will share your feedback with the Front Office manager whom I am convinced will look into the situation. Regarding the taxi service, I can understand how uncomfortable it was for you to be charged 25% more than was indicated on the taximeter. However, a taxi fare can depend on a number of things and our hotel only provides call handling service for various taxi companies. Consequently, we are not responsible for the rates the taxi company or taxi driver charges. Therefore, please accept our sincere apologies for the inconveniences which affected your journey at our hotel and please feel free to contact me directly at: bucharest_information@hilton.com, should you want to share more information about the situation you have encountered during your stay. I do hope that you will grant me the opportunity to make it right for your disappointment and prove the high quality services we deliver here at Athénée Palace Hilton Bucharest. Best Regards, Rainer Gieringer General Manager

Beautiful building with nice ‘old style’ lobby! But these are the best features of this flagship Hilton property in Romania. The rooms, albeit of good size, look tired and uninviting ... with the brownish furniture not adding to its image. Add to this the ageing bathrooms

What is the best way to get from the hotel from the airport?
We arrived late at night so we opted for a private driver who met us in the terminal and we reserved it through the hotel. It was not the cheapest method but it was the safest for us as we were arriving close to midnight in the city. The service was great.

The concierge at the hotel should be able to handle it for you. He speaks quite passable English. You can reach him through the hotel switch board or via email. email would obviously save you the long distance charges

"sk for a room with a good view; our room did not have any view whatsoever."
"The higher floors offer nicer views. Our room was very well-insulated, and I'm sure all the others are, too."
"Rooms facing Revolution Square"
"Be sure to avoid rooms in which you can hear the late-night music from the ballroom"
"Ask for a room NOT facing the interior of the building. There are plenty on the outside."
