“Superb Service”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

An outstanding welcome with snack and excellent Romanian wine awaiting our arrival. Lovely modern design rooms ultra clean. We stayed two nights outward and inward on our train travel to Istanbul. Both rooms were so quiet you could sleep with the windows open if you didn't need the excellent air conditioning. Reasonable restaurant far better than you would expect for this size of hotel. Ideal for business travellers and good for tourists if you don't mind a ten minute walk. Taxis are cheap providing you ensure they are metered (not a problem if ordered through the hotel).

Room Tip: We slept in a room overlooking the back on both occasions. This is probably worth requesting.

Thank you very much for your feedback, we highly appreciate it! We think that a good meal can make a difference between having a good time or having a great time in Bucharest so we always ensure that the food we serve in the restaurant (weather is the breakfast, lunch or dinner) is fresh and delicious with a balanced and fair price! I hope you have wonderful memories of Bucharest and come to visit again!

Stayed three nights at Hotel Christina with husband and we were both very impressed with the service. Alexandra at the front desk was very friendly and always went out of her way to greet us. Another hotel staff member, whose name I don't remember (sorry), always made sure we had coffee and/or breakfast even if the kitchen was closed! She even went in her own purse to make change for us when we didn't have small bills. The food at breakfast was always fresh and the hotel was spotless. We really enjoyed hanging out on the terrace one night and making friends with other hotel patrons. The lilac room was pretty cool with the ergonomic beds and remote control curtains. The toiletries were some of the nicest we have ever received at a hotel, in fact, better than ones from Hilton and Marriott-Chopard (shower gel, shampoo, soap) and Bvlgari (shampoo and shower gel, shampoo and after shave). This boutique hotel really stands out.

Glad to know you enjoyed the Christina experience and that we could make your stay in Bucharest as pleasant as possible! I think it is an extraordinary thing to socialize and meet people from so many different parts of the world and the terrace, lobby or breakfast area are great places to do just this; also this is one of the reasons why we throw a complimentary party from time to time when we invite all our guests at that moment, but at the same time – of course – we respect the privacy of those who desire to keep a low profile! Thank you for your review!

I gave the hotel 5 stars because it is a great value, but don’t expect the Waldorf here. This is a really nice, modern boutique hotel with a super friendly and caring staff. As others have stated, the rooms are ultra modern and comfy, if a bit on the small side. I especially loved the Bvlgari & Chopard toiletries. The surrounding area of the hotel is not bad either. There are several restaurants and chic bars nearby. A short cab ride and you are in the historic downtown center where all the action is. The hotel has umbrellas and electricity converters for your convenience, so save the luggage space. Don't miss the nice outdoor terrace for drinks and snacks.

It’s true, the terrace is lovely to sip your coffee in the morning or have a drink in the afternoon, but we have to take advantage of this while we can because winter is not far away and it can get cold in Romania during this time. Thank you very much for your generous appreciations, it was a pleasure to have you as our guest!

We stayed at Christina for 3 nights at the end of an European tour through France and Bulgaria. I had very high ex[ectations after seeing Hotel Christina ranking #1 on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed. Very friendly and helping staff, attention to details and welcoming. Felt much better than other boutique hotels in our tour or even they big 5* chains!
Thank you for the warm welcoming!

Salut Tudor! With this kind of reviews, it is always a challenge to raise to ours guests’ expectations, but we are up to it and more than happy to do our best every time and try to exceed them. In comparison to the big 5 star hotels we have the advantage that we can offer a more personalized and attentive service and have a more personal approach towards our guests and I am very glad to know that people like you appreciate this kind of services. Thank you for being our guest and for your review!

We had a group staying for approximately 1 weeks. Room 13 ws the best as it had an attached terrace.The staff were exceptional from arranging our pick up at the airport, to our welcome by Alex, to the designer rooms. I had my suits dry cleaned within 1 day. We had whichever variety of omelate we wanted with great cups of coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice for us ( thanks George) and healthy options also available. The staff were all fantastic- explaining our routes, arranging taxis, helping with subway routes, arranging tourist days out to Peles and Bram Castles and generally being extremely accomodating of our banter and full on humour.
Our main conference was at Radisson Blue, but this hotel half the price of Radisson Blue and 10 times the service. The walk to Radisson Blue helped us burn off the breakfasts vices.
We ate several times at the hotel as well which was great value.
The WiFi was free and fast and the homemade lemonade was made with freshly cut mint from the garden.
Thanks Elena, Alexandria, Adriana additionally all of whom made our stay wonderful and a great example of Romanian hospitatlity!

Happy to hear your stay in Bucharest as our guests was a pleasure to you as it was to us! Glad to know you liked the restaurant, we are trying to bring with it healthy, fresh and not the least: delicious food to our guests. I would very much appreciate it if you could leave a review also on the Restaurant Hotel Christina page on TripAdvisor. Reviews like yours are a reward and represent a great motivation for us. It is very nice when you can combine business with pleasure: I hope you enjoyed the Peles and Bran Castles and also got the chance to see Brasov city, if not, maybe next time because it is worth it. We thank YOU for choosing Hotel Christina and giving us the opportunity to have you as our guest! Noroc!

A group of us stayed here for a week on conference. I was impressed with all facets from the efficient hotel pickup by Daniel, warm and helpful staff, welcome drinks and platter. Room was spacious and comfortable with adjustable bed. Excellent breakfast with good variety. Dinner menu highly recommended with local specialities and friendly service from George the waiter. Mucumeste to the staff.

We stayed at the Christina with our 9 months old son and were very warmly welcomed into a family atmosphere.

The room was very nice, clean with a Nespresso coffee maker. Breakfast buffet was very good with fresh juice and heavenly coffee!! and the omelette was included as well.

The hotel is in a upswing area of Bucharest with still some construction going on but very quiet, although not very near to the old town.

Still a hotel we'd definitely come back to.

Thank you for choosing Christina and taking the time to write the review! It is always a great pleasure to welcome our guests but is a special pleasure in welcoming guests so young like your son and the fact that you found the atmosphere familiar is very satisfying for me.
