Hilton advertised ALL rooms are remodeled as of June 2021. Mine was very dated and clearly NOT recently renovated. Management didn't seem to care when I complained. If you want ice, plan ahead. Ice can only be gotten through room service and ice delivery is clearly not a priority.

Hotel's Favourite
Aura the Front Desk Manager is a wizard turning lemon into lemonade....she and the rest of her wonderful team were making the five days in Bucharest memorable for us. The dinner at the hotels restaurant was fantastic and everything was like a clock work. Whilst we stayed at the old part of the hotel, the suite was spotless and grand. The new part of the hotel is very modern. Special appreciation to Mr Gieringer the hotel General Manager for having such a great team.

Hilton Athenee Palace Bucharest is located at the heart of the capital next to one of the art museums and a 40 minute taxi ride from the airport, OTP. The hotel has several bars and restaurants and given the location there is easy access to both restaurants and shopping around the hotel. There is also a large health club with a good size gym, indoor pool and a Spa. The rooms in the new section of the building are all newly refurbished and have an excellent standard whilst the older part still needs a renovation but is scheduled for un update during 2022. There is a nice executive lounge with breakfast 6.30am to 10.30am and dinner and evening drinks between 6pm and 8pm. There is even a balcony to enjoy the evening sun or a meeting room if you need to work. There is limited paid for parking space available in front of the hotel if you come by car. Overall a good hotel for exploring town

I’d like to share some feedback and observations, as I already did yesterday Sunday 19th, that made me be very disappointed about the service and facilities. carpets were not properly cleaned The daily cleaning service was terrible. The bed badly done, garbage not collected, glasses and mugs never replaced, teabags and coffee never re-filled. The personal from cleaning took some biscuits and pastry I had. Water bottles were dirty/sticky The card to go to the fitness never worked, therefore I hd to always look for the kindness of the fitness personal to help me come back to the room The WC was NOT working and making reflux. Therefore second day a disgusting smell. Elevator taking several attempts to let you go to the room Overall, the experience was very bad and unacceptable for the rate you have. I was the previous days in Hilton Evian les Bains and many others before covid. I know what I had in Bucharest in not at the level of what I have seen in other Hiltons. I hope you can review these elements. Thank you Regards

Lovely and clean, great people in the restaurant, but services hugely limited. No coffee (or tv remote control)!) in the room, serviced only by request. After hours room service only sandwiches, no veg choice. Finally, I needed advice on local COVID testing to return home, whilst I was at a conference during the day. I was promised an email from the concierge and nothing came. Had to hastily arrange a drive through which will probably delay my return. Stayed here at the beginning of the year during a stricter lockdown. Things haven’t really changed much. Marriott, Radisson and Pullman better in Bucharest.
