For being a in relatively poor country with terrible infrastructure, the prices here were fiendishly high in almost every respect. At the minibar a bottle of water was $10 and one day of Wifi internet access will add another $25 to the bill. Laundry service can easily cost you $100 if you don't pay attention to the load you're putting together. There was also a pimp walking around the lobby at night looking for customers. He seemed obvious in his endeavors but I saw no attempt to remove him. I suppose for some people that's a "plus" but not for me.
That being said it is a beautiful hotel and the staff was very helpful. The fitness center is acceptable and the location is decent (which is saying something in Bucharest since everything feels difficult for a non-Romanian speaker to reach on their own); it could have been better though since the Palace grounds are so extensive and tough to get around. AT any rate, overall I just did not find it worth the cost.
