Probably not worth the price

Was just there for the one night... this is a pretty famous hotel in Bucharest, and if you tell the taxi drivers the name you won't have to worry about an address. The staff are actually comparatively friendly for Bucharest, which can honestly be worth its weight in gold.
The beds are weird - not too bad, but maybe just too old.
There was aircon, which is a definite plus in summer when the temperature can get scorching. Last summer (2007) there was a heat wave in which several people died. We were appreciating aircon then, I can tell you.
The breakfast is spectacularly basic for such a fancy looking hotel. Don't expect too much.

Unique Quality: There is no internet (which is quite normal in Bucharest), but if you come out of the hotel and walk straight forward to the junction, cross the street, turn right and walk down Elisabeta street, a little way down on your left is a basment internet place, which looks very dodgy but is not at all, and has reasonable rates.
Incredibly weirdly, you cannot make outgoing international calls (or, I think receive them) for most of the day, but occasionally, they'll let you! Sorry, I can't explain this, i couldn't get a rational explanation out of them.

Directions: Just down from Piata Revolutionai

Old grandeur but a bit depressing. As the hotel was full and we arrived late, we were assigned to a suite. Not bad. Very spacious but again: depressing. We spent our last night here. Not complaining though. After a full week at the Marriott and a very acceptable hotel in the Danube Delta, it's not quite fair to put this hotel down. In the photo we had the corner room (in the round section) on the second floor.

Unique Quality: Is a poor breakfast a unique quality?
Probably, because we ate well in Bucharest on the whole.
Stale bread, little choice, and not much food to go on, if the hotel is full.
