Good news first: The rooms are very spacious, bedding is ok, receptionists are quite friendly and helpful.
Unfortunately there was a musty smell in the room which could be contained as long as the aircon was working. Not sure if I the smokers who wrote some previous reviews are to blame!
Bucharest can be incredibly hot during the summer months. Although the hotel is rather new, the AC produces more noise than cool air. You cannot select the fan speed, and selecting the temperature meant basically to chose the lowest possible setting until you woke up almost frozen by 5 a.m.. By the way, the AC only works when the hotel key card is in the appropriate slot. No way to cheat with just another plastic card when you are out of the room as the slot reacts to a magnetic stripe (I did not want to try my luck by leaving a credit card ;o) during my absence...
During my three nights stay, I never saw anybody in the hotel restaurant... so I decided it was not up to me to play the guinea pig. A receptionist recommended the Trattoria Opera (10 min walk - guess what, just across the square from the Opera) which turned out to be very good. Otherwise, dining options in the neighbourhood were limited to the eateries of nearby hotels (Ibis and Marriott)
If TV programmes matter, you should know that there are more than 70 channels to chose from, however CNN and (french) TV5 Monde are the only international programmes.
A previous poster wrote that this hotel is "placed in the center of Bucharest" which is on the not-so-accurate side if you mean the old town or the CBD which can easily be reached by taxi. Walking to downtown Bucharest is possible, but takes about 25 minutes.
