The Athenee Palace has been one of Bucharest’s finest hotels for more than 100 years. It is a living piece of the city’s history - it dates from 1914. Books have been written about the goings on at this place (the best of which is Rosie Waldeck's Athene Palace). Yet behind its historic facade you will find a most modern and contemporary place to stay. There is a wide range of rooms to choose from: perhaps the best are those with views over equally historic Piata Revolutiei. Besides the amazing accommodation, the Athenee Palace also offers an indoor pool and health club, terrific onsite dining and you should not forget that this is also of course the home of the English Bar: probably Bucharest's most famous pub.
