Although spacious and elegant, in terms of design, the rooms are pretty traditional for my taste, but the rest of the hotel is all about sophisticated luxury. There is a gym, spa, pool, plus two restaurants, fancy bar, and a wonderful terrace where you can enjoy drinks.

This elegant hotel has the historical architecture with all of the modern amenities you could ever ask for! A must (if you are visiting over a weekend) is the Sunday Brunch on the terrace. You'll linger for hours... it's that good!

One of the best hotel stays in Bucharest. Centrally located in the heart of Romania's capital, at the corner of Calea Victoriei, the Athénée Palace historic luxury hotel dates back from 1912 when it was first designed by French architect Theophile Bradeau. It was arguably known during the World War II as Europe's most notorious den of spies. In 1948, the hotel was nationalized by the new Communist government, who famously bugged every room, tapped every phone, and staffed the entire hotel with informers. The government-run Athénée Palace closed in 1994 and was bought at auction by Hilton International, who proceeded to do a $42 million renovation and expansion, reopening the hotel as the Athénée Palace Hilton Bucharest in 1997. Hilton expanded the hotel to nearly twice its former size, transforming it into the splendid hotel that it is today.

This is an excellent hotel right in the center of the city. The rooms were great and the facility is top notch. Breakfast was great and the executive lounge was one of the best. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
