Cream of the Crop

Athenee Palace Hilton

Str. Episcopiei 1-3
Tel: 303 37 77
Fax: 315 38 13
The Hilton just gets better. Built in 1912 on the site of Hanul Gherasi, and designed by the French architect Teophile Bradeau, the Athenee Palace was completely refurbished in the 1990s when it became part of the Hilton group. Always a luxurious establishment, it is today one of the best hotels in the Hilton collection, and offers innumerable services alongside its sumptuous rooms. First class restaurants, a health club with swimming pool, regular theatre evenings, shops and the historic English Bar. It is a living piece of Bucharest's history. Utterly recommended. VAT not included. Extra bed 30$.


Calea Victoriei 36
Tel: 313 40 38
Fax: 313 59 99
A building as lovely as they come in this town, with a history as long as your arm. Completely refurbished to luxury standards, the rooms at the Capsa are large, comfortable and full of all those little extras that make staying in a luxury hotel worthwhile. As for location, this is as central as you can get. Prices include VAT and breakfast.

Crowne Plaza Bucharest

B-dul Poligrafiei 1
Tel: 224 00 34
Fax: 224 11 26
Set in the quiet and leafy north of the city, this is another of the city's top hotels. Rooms are impressively equipped and include dataports for laptops, safes, and fabulous bathrooms.

Howard Johnson Grand Plaza

Calea Dorobantilor 5-7
Tel: 201 50 00
Fax: 201 18 88
At last. After a seemingly never-ending refit, which began way back in 1999, the Hotel Dorobanti last year resurfaced as the Howard Johnson Grand Plaza, part of the huge Howard Johnson chain. You'll find all the good services you would expect of a Howard Johnson hotel here from large, well decorated rooms to a great health club and excellent restaurants, plus, from the upper floors you have some of the best views of the city there are. VAT not included. Prices include breakfast.


B-dul Nicolae Bălcescu 2-4
Tel: 310 20 20
Fax: 312 04 86
Standing over 80 metres tall, from its completion in 1970 until the opening of the Europa Tower in Piata Victoriei, the Inter Continental was the tallest building in Romania for more than thirty years. Designed by a team of four architects (three Romanian, one American) the Inter Continental provided a dramatic backdrop for the events of December 21/22 1989, when revolutionaries fought pitch battles with the remnants of the communist regime under the noses of foreign journalists watching from the balconies of their rooms. Recently renovated, the hotel is today a five star wonder, and still a favourite with visiting journalists and businessmen. VAT included. Prices include breakfast.

JW Marriott

Calea 13 Septembrie 90
Tel: 403 10 00
Fax: 403 10 01
Grand in every way from actual size to service and facilities, the JW Marriott is another contender for best hotel in Bucharest, and the first JW Marriott in continental Europe. The JW has succesfully created a thriving community nestled on a hill just behind the Palace of Parliament, and offers rooms that are accordingly large and have pretty much all you could wish for, including bathrooms you'd be happy to sleep in. Also features some of the best restaurants in town, as well as a shopping mall, the World Class Health Academy and a top-class sports bar. Recommended. VAT not included.


P-ta Montreal 10
