So, first time in Bucharest. Came across this hotel on trip advisor as it was highly recommended. It is located in the 'old part' of Bucharest, and prefectly located for transport, shopping centres and the amazing cafes, bars and restaurants.
So, a couple of things in the first 24 hours.
The staff are fantastic, very helpful and well presented. The restaurant and bar on the ground floor is great.
There are no tea/coffee making faclites in the rooms? A bit strange. However, wander out of the hotel and there are plenty of little bakeries selling fresh pastries for about 2 Lei (US .60 cents). Cafe's are a bit more challenging to find.
No ironing board/iron in rooms. A bit of a pain considering I'm here on business. I'm yet to request one, which shouldn't be a problem.
No ice or ice machine. Interesting, considering they do have a small bar fridge in each room.
No clock or clock radio. Really quite strange, as every hotel I've stayed in has one beside the bed. I did ask for one, however I was told this wasn't possible. I was offered a 'wake up call', which I arranged, however I suspect the person charged with that responsibility may have slept in, as no one called.
For tourists, very little information. No list of tours, no flyers, no tour desk, no maps or the area...
Four days to go...
