Bricks are us

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 6, 2010

It might be a really good hotel for somebody else, but it wasn't for me. The beds were very hard (not just "firm") and I was uncomfortable. I would probably recommend it to others, but with that qualification.

Unique Quality: It is the tallest building in Bucharest, and there are good views from upper floors. Pool on 22nd floor. Good location.

One service I've never seen anywhere else: They had 7 different kinds of pillows in stock--If you didn't like your pillow, you could request another kind.

This old hotel in the prime center location has been renovated very nicely. Many rooms are now modern with all the amenities. There's a casino and a gym at the hotel. Also a pool, which we did not try. Restaurant at the ground floor offered some super fine cuisine at fair prices. The magazine shop however is a little sad. Tiny corner shop with a few english papers (huge import prices).

Unique Quality: The Club offers superb service and fine snacks. Also the gym staff were very friendly.
GREATLY recommended hotel!

Directions: Airport bus has "University square" stop right in front

Probably the most known

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 13, 2005

This hotel is situated in University's Square, at the start of Magheru Boulevard. I haven't stayed here but it's really impossible for someone staying for at least a night in Bucharest not to see it. It's one of the tallest buildings in Bucharest, around 24 floors, and it has a restaurant with amazing views at its top. It was built in the 70's and it's rated five stars.
This is a novel picture of Intercontinental, taken from the new building of the Architecture Institute. The hotel is the tall building in the background. In between is the old building of the Architecture Institute.

The hotel is as central as it could get. Actually, Universitatii Square is considered the center of the downtown area, sort of speak.

Hotel provides accommodation in 390 rooms and 13 suites (16 connecting rooms, 78 non-smoking rooms and 2 rooms for disabled guests). All guest room are equipped with remote control TV, 21 movie and satellite channels, 4 pay TV channels, changed twice a week, direct dial telephones, 1 line bathroom telephone, voicemail, bathrobes, minibar and in-room safe.

Facilities: 24hours reception desk, business center, beauty center, health center, restaurant, bars, car rental, stores, casino, shuttle transfer to OTP (Henri Coanda International) airport.

Also, the hotel provides five halls for various type of meetings:
1. Ronda - 470sqm - aprox.500px
2. Florentina - 273sqm - aprox.250px
3. Intim - 64sqm - aprox.35px
4. Mirrors Hall - 80sqm - aprox.50px
5. Hora - 130sqm - aprox.80px

Other facts: The hotel was built back in 1971 and it was for many years the tallest building in Bucharest. Now it is surpased only by the Parliament Palace, the Free Press building and the new headquarter building of the Romanian Bank for Development.
