I stayed here for a week in December. I booked my room online, not through their reservation system but via a hotel website, and there were no glitches. My room was nice and big, with a desk and coffee maker, plus a North American plug outlet in the bathroom which I thought was a nice touch (though I had brought my own power converter). The bed was comfortable; the pillows were too soft for my taste, but most hotel pillows usually are.
The hotel has a pretty good breakfast buffet, and the bar is open late for food and drinks. The restaurant/bar area is small though, maybe only fitting 12-15 people comfortably. That's one of the hotel's weaknesses, but it would only matter if you were with a large group wanting to eat there rather than go out. It also has a small fitness center (couple of treadmills and a weight machine) which I used, and a licensed massage therapist on the premises. (They take great pains to assure you it is a professional massage, not a "happy ending" session.)
The Moxa is located nicely, as it's a 20 minute walk south to the Old City and the People's Palace, and about 20 minutes north to Bucharest's Arch of Trimuph and Museum of the Romanian Peasant. It's also close to the Gara du Nord although you have to walk through a bit of a dicey neighborhood to get to it. But even if you just walk up and down the street the hotel is on (Calea Victoriei) you'll find plenty to see and do.
I've only been to Bucharest once, so I can't compare the Moxa to anything else available. But this place would definitely be on my short list for staying at again.
