    Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Bucuresti Gara de Nord Bucharest

    Hôtel agréable et fonctionnel mais rien de particulier


    J'ai passé 3 nuits à l'hôtel Ibis Gara de Nord au mois de février. Dans l'ensemble, j'ai passé un bon moment et c'est sans doute le point fort de mon voyage dans une ville que je ne classerais pas parmi mes préférées.

    Les points positifs : Le personnel était assez aimable et empressé pour me changer de chambre lorsque la connexion Internet ne fonctionnait pas (on m'a dit que la connexion était hors d'usage dans de nombreuses chambres, prenez-y garde si c'est un point important pour vous). La chambre était propre, l'emplacement était pratique et le petit déjeuner offrait beaucoup de choix. Le restaurant n'était pas fantastique mais le coût était en dessous de la moyenne et les serveurs étaient sympathiques.

    Et les points négatifs : Je suis d'accord avec les autres commentaires sur la température de la chambre. Il faisait extrêmement chaud. Mes réclamations auprès de la réception ont été accueillies avec des promesses enthousiastes de faire quelque chose mais la température ne s'est pas améliorée.

    C'était bien d'avoir une connexion Internet gratuite mais je n'ai pas été heureux de payer 8 euros pour un câble (peut-être est-ce ma faute puisque qu'un autre commentateur avait prévenu). Le site Ibis indique que l'hôtel possède la WiFi mais il faut payer pour l'utiliser (Vodaphone, je pense) et c'est très cher.

    Good location but.....


    I stayed in room 408 from 12/2 - 16/2.

    The hotel is situated beautifully near the center of the town. The rooms are spacious and well arranged - what you would expect from an IBIS. There is also free internet in all rooms, which makes a good addition. The housekeeping staff are very friendly and prompt as well. However the good things stop there:

    i) The windows do not open, so you cannot get fresh air in the room

    ii) The room is too hot and the floor unit they have as "airconditioning" doesnt do anything to improve the situation

    iii) The food is expensive and awful. It gave me a bad stomach all night

    Bottom line is: book here if you dont plan to stay in the room much and DONT eat at all costs!

    Free internet


    This is a real oasis of sanity in Bucharest. The location isn't great but the hotel works like clockwork. Ironically there was an Ikea conference going on there while I stayed and Ibis is really the Ikea of hotels; cheap, functional and reliable. Internet access is free in the room (!) you just have to buy a cable for 8 euro if you don't have one (which you can keep afterwards). The food in the restaurant is good, the rooms seem to have everything you need and nothing you don't (eg minibar). They don't have room service, which was my only real complaint as this place is probably largely used by single business travellers.

    Très bien pour le prix


    Nous y avons passé une nuit à l'allé et au retour de notre voyage en Roumanie. L'hôtel est très près de la gare (Gara Nord) d'où nous avons pris notre correspondance. Nous étions très contents de notre chambre à l'Ibis. Le personnel était très serviable et efficace et le petit déjeuner était adéquat, mais pas élaboré. La chambre était très propre et calme. Nous ne pouvions pas baisser la température alors qu'il faisait très chaud. Nous n'avons pas essayé de modifier la température, car c'était seulement pour une nuit, mais la prochaine fois, nous nous assurerons que la température est confortable. Nous y étions le vendredi soir et nous avons payé 59 euros (210 RON) sans le petit déjeuner. Le petit déjeuner coûte 8 euros en plus. Nous retournerons à l'Ibis Nord.

    Nous avons adoré


    Nous sommes arrivés à l'hôtel Ibis à 8h du matin et ils nous ont immédiatement donné une chambre. La chambre était super grande et elle avait un lit sensass, une petite table, un mini frigo et une salle de bains extra. La climatisation était indispensable et elle marchait extrêmement bien. Nous n'avons donc aucune plainte à faire au sujet de la chambre, c'était extra. La plupart du personnel était super mais, nous avons eu quelques problèmes à obtenir le prix le plus bas car notre réservation n'était pas dans leur système. Un homme, en particulier, nous a dit que notre réservation n'était qu' « une feuille de papier » et qu'elle ne voulait rien dire. Heureusement, la femme qui travaillait plus tard à la réception était fantastique et nous a fait payer le plus bas prix auquel on avait fait notre réservation. Le restaurant de l'hôtel était super et chapeau à Dana qui connaissait environ cinq langues et qui pouvait passer d'une langue à l'autre alors qu'elle servait les tables. Elle était spectaculaire ! En gros, une super expérience et nous y retournerions volontiers.

    Very Nice for the value


    We stayed one night on our inbound and outbound legs of our trip to Romania. The hotel is very convenient to the Gara Nord train station where we connected with our train. We were very happy with the accommodations at the Ibis. The staff was very helpful and efficient and the breakfast was adequate but not elaborate. The room was very clean and quiet but we could not lower the temperature and it was very warm. We didn't bother attempting to correct the temperature because it was only one night but the next time we'll make sure the room temperature is comfortable. We stayed on Friday night, 59 Euro / 210 RON without breakfast. Breakfast is 8 Euro additional. We will stay at the Ibis Nord again.

    Loved it


    We arrived at the Ibis at 8am and they gave us a room straight away. The room was a fantastic size, great bed, a little table, mini fridge, great bathroom. The aircon was well needed and worked extremly well. No complaints at all about the room, it was awesome. Most of the staff were great but we had trouble with our booking not being on the system so we had a bit of trouble getting the cheaper rate. One man in particular told us our booking was just a "piece of paper" and didnt mean anything. Luckily though the lady on reception later was fantastic and charged us at the lesser rate that we had booked at. The restaurant at the hotel was great, big thumbs up to Dana who knew about five languages and could switch back and forth as she moved between tables. She was awesome! Overall a great experience and would definately stay there again.

    Ibis: clean and well maintained


    Stayed at the Ibis Gara du Nord for one night. Room was clean, furnishings like new. Price is reasonable. Location is convenient for the train station (next block). Staff speak English. Be aware of differences between the hotel linked taxis out front. The Mercedes taxi costs more than the standard car, the meter rate being higher.

    Good value


    I stayed at the Hotel Ibis in Bucharest on February 27, 2005. Hotel is clean, safe, and well run; rooms are comfortable and functional. Restaurant has decent food; staff is fluent in English. A good value in Bucharest.

    Grateful for the VALUE of the Ibis formula


    IBIS is the same everywhere: clean and predictable. I've never been so glad to see one as in Bucharest, which is neither. The staff was very friendly and I really had an "oasis" feeling.

    ... Europeans like to party!

    We said goodbye to Sabine and hopped in the van to the airport with Carol and Dave. Those lucky dogs are heading to Italy for 2 more weeks of vacation.

    I was reviewing events of the week and realized I had failed to mention a Scottish song that goes "ye cannae shove your granni from the bus" but I wasn't provided the opportunity to record it. I expect Joan to send me a video soon.

    We ate dinner – I had what I was assured was a very Romanian dish, with polenta and Romanian cheese and a very meat-y stew that may or may not have included liver. I didn’t ask. Ruxi ordered cheese balls since she heard me exclaim over seeing them on the menu, then offered some to me. (They were exactly what they sounded like ...

    It's about time I arrived here in Bucharest. After flying for so long it is hard to stay awake, the only time I got to sleep was the flight from Sydney to London which was a massive twelve and a half hours. The stopover in Sydney was almost 4 hours and the stop in London was 5, but luckily there were shops to kill time and places to eat. I arrived in Bucharest at 3:00 pm but because Bucharest is 7 hours behind Brisbane it was only 8 o'clock in the morning! I spent ...

    Hello Bucharest, I'm so glad to be here!

    Even today, Simone told us, some still reminisce fondly about the good old days under Ceaușescu.

    ... the seat. A full ****. It was DISGUSTING! I swear I washed my hands 20 times and that was not enough. I informed the bar staff who just pretended they didn't know. I put a candle on the seat to warn future toilet goers but they just used the toilet anyway. I started to wonder if I was the only person not willing to use a toilet with a big **** on it!? Every time I ventured to the men's bathroom, I ...
