Hotel Christina
Ranked #1 of 170 Hotels in Bucharest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 December 2013

Hotel Christina's location offers easy access to major boulevards and still preserves some secludedness at the same time. It's not far from the old town by walk. From there, you can also reach the Piatia Unirii (Unification Square) with an additional about 15 mins walk. In that square, it's a great joy to join local folks waiting in long lines to buy their Covrigi (a little similar to pretzels, but much better IMO). By turning west there, you will be reaching the gigantic parliament building after another more or less 15 mins walk. There are 2 grocery stores near Christina: Metroplis Center and Billa (both within 10 mins range). The hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful. The hotel owner is nice, warm, knowledgeable and humorous. As already noted in another review, the hotel's breakfast is excellent.

Those covrigi are a nice treat, some with poppy, others with sesame or even olives or raisins, they have always been around, but really boomed-up some 4-5 years ago. Now, I think there are some hundred places where you can buy them in Bucharest, some of them really good. It was a pleasure to meet you and talk, thank you very much for your review, your feedback is very important for me!

Hotel Christina was perfect for my weeklong stay in Bucharest for me and my girlfriend. We had a great time and in part it was because of the people working here. They came up with really good recommendations, provided tickets for shows with no extra cost, arranged a city tour and many more. They even bought me a Romanian sim for my mobile phone. Keep up the good work guys!

I think that the staff isn't there just to check you in and out, but also to aid you in every way possible so that your stay is the way you like it. The receptionist should be like an ambassador of the city, a local that can give you the best advice. Thank you very much for your review!

Easy walk to the metro to old town & the palace. Arriving by train late night, the hotel driver picked me up. Exhausted and hungry, the restaurant was closed but the staff brought me a sandwich and welcome drink and cheese platter We utilized the hotel private car tour of Transylvania, excellent tour guide! The breakfast was one my favorites in Europe. Much more was offered than your typical Western European breakfast.

I am glad you had the time to get out of Bucharest and see a part of Romania, as there are many things to discover. The tour was an excellent choice for this! I think that you can't have the best day without a very good breakfast, so I think it is really important to have a good quality one and varied enough so that everybody can find something they like. If it is not on the buffet, never hesitate to order something especially for you. Thank you very much for your review!

Even if we are living in Bucharest sometimes is good to escape for couple of days from kids and spent a romantic weekend just with the wife. Based on the reviews from Tripadvisor and the special price for the weekend, we choose Hotel Christina. Looking retrospectively we had no regrets at all for the choice we made. The hotel is small and nice, but what can you expect for a design hotel...Not to mention that is central located.

The rooms are clean and very nice, including the welcome kit. The personnel is very helpful and kind, as makes you feel like home. The food in the restaurant both for the dinner and the breakfast is diverse and great tasting.

Definitively is a hotel to recommend and it is a great welcome in the Bucharest landscape.

I am sorry that your experience with Christina, even though very limited, was not the way you wanted it to be. Even so, I have to point out a few things: you booked the hotel via booking.com, not by a direct booking as you stated in the review. Furthermore, I think it is a little bit unfair that you rated stuff like Sleep Quality and Cleanliness, even though you didn't show up to honor your booking. I think that practices like this are misleading the TripAdvisor community. I hope that maybe next time we can both have a better experience and understanding.

We satyed two nights there in Christina. We did not know what to expect but with the tripadvisor reviews and score chances are that you will not go wrong. We liked very much the design and cleanness of the hotel, presented a very modern and classy ambient. The crew were very helpful and willing to please. It was a nice surprise, we will come back.
