Hotel Central
Ranked #65 of 170 Hotels in Bucharest
Reviewed 27 August 2013

The hotel is modern and well located in Central Bucharest, as its name suggests. It offered a decent buffet breakfast. My only complaint is that our room wasn't cleaned as thoroughly as I would have liked either before or during our stay.

Stayed in this hotel for 2nights. I must say, everything from diners to bars/clubs are just stone throw away. We had the view of the street from our room. The streets were bustling till late night.
The front desk made checking-in a breeze. They were also very patient and helpful in aiding us with directions.
The rooms are small and boutique-like. But they well maintained and kept clean. Morning buffet spread is fair enough and worth the price. We liked the fact that we had to only walk a short distance to reach our destinations..be it restaurants, bistros and bars. Fast food restaurants are very near to the hotel as well.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

The Central proved to be a good choice: easy to find just off the main Regina Elisabeta Boulevard. Fast and friendly check in a modern 'funky' decor preceded a clean, comfortable and modern room. Free wifi was welcomed. Couldn't figure out the aircon so slept with the window wide open....there is plenty of noise early on in Bucharest! Decent enough breakfast but could do with being restocked quicker.

Some restaurants in the immediate vicinity but plenty more to the east.

A good value proposition for Bucharest.

For the combination of location, amenities and price, this definitely deserves a 5. No on-site restaurant, but the breakfast buffet is very good (albeit always the same), and many good to fine restaurants are within easy walking distance (check out Vatra). Very helpful and courteous staff (we got concierge service from the front desk) and English is good enough to get the job done without misunderstanding. Central location (what would you expect, given the name?) in walking distance of several parks, museums, the river, sidewalk cafes, and Parliament House (although that's a bit of a trek). I'll just add that my back (which is a bit picky) loved the bed and the WiFi worked flawlessly (and speedily). Only negatives were the room was a bit on the small side and there's no on-site parking if you're adventurous (brave?) enough to rent a car. But a taxi is relatively cheap and you shouldn't be spending so much time in your room anyway!

Room Tip: Back rooms have a lousy view, but are quieter.

The hotel is well located, in 5 min is the Old city and on the other side of the street is a very nice, big and more than 100 yrs old park Cismigiu where you can spend all day. The breakfast is ok, only the same food every day. Wi-fi is free, staff is friendly, taxis is Bucharest are cheap.

Great location...close to all main attractions in the city. Breakfast is very decent, the staff are helpfull and friendly. The rooms are small but very well equipped. Beds are super comfy...and I loved the super soft bedsheets! We were a bit dissapointed of not having a room with a street view at first, but we realized we were actually lucky to have a back-alley view because the streets are very noisy at night and we, with our not so pretty view, were not bothered at all by the noise...we could even sleep with the windows opened... Pricewise, it was a bit overpriced, but at least you know what to expect...good service, comfy beds and a nice breakfast!

The Central was my Bucharest home for three nights. Very conveniently located for both the old town (a ten-minute or so walk) and the airport bus (five minutes), and easy to find. Also nearby is Ceasescu's palace and the relaxing Izvor park; you'll be able to walk almost everywhere central. Around the hotel, there's nothing special and mostly residential, but a short walk to some mini markets.

Checking in was pleasant and the staff welcoming with adequate knowledge of English. Upon request, a city map was produced and thorough explanations given.

My room was a double of normal, comfortable size, and with plenty of storage space in a cupboard. The bed allowed for a good night's sleep, and on the fourth floor, traffic noise was no problem with the window closed. The bathroom was also comfortably sized, and with a nice shower.

Breakfast was ok, but could have done with a wider selection. The scrambled eggs, while not always present, was surprisingly good. The personell was very friendly and welcoming, but could have done a bit more to stock up choices also when the end of breakfast time is approaching.

In all, this is a comfortable and conveniently located hotel, and good option to spend some time in Bucharest. I'd be happy to return.
