Grand Hotel Continental is a 5-star hotel in the Old Town of Bucharest, on Victory Avenue. The hotel is today part of the international hotel chain Continental Hotels and the hotel owner is the romanian businessman Radu Enache.
Until the early 19th century, in this location were the houses of the romanian boyar family Ghica. Since 1868, in one of these houses opened the Grand Hotel Brofft, one of the most luxurious bucharestian hotels in the 19th century. The hotel had 48 rooms and the ground floor comprised a famous french restaurant. Over time, the hotel had many special guests like Prince Napoleon, Vasile Alecsandri or Carol Davila.
In 1886, the old hotel was demolished and replaced by the new Hotel Continental. The restaurant in the ground floor of the new hotel was the best Romanian traditional restaurant in the city.
Untill 2010, the hotel has been renovated and modernized for 8.5 million euros. It became a luxury hotel offering 53 rooms, 6 suites, 6 meeting rooms, a spa with jacuzzi, sauna and massage parlors, beauty treatments and care, as well as fitness and aerobics.
