Designed by Dinu Hariton, Gheorghe Nădrag, Ion Moscu and Romeo Belea, it was part of a bigger project which included the building of the Bucharest National Theatre.[1]

Construction began in 1967 and was finished in 3 years. With its height of 77 meters, when it was opened on 23 of May 1971 it was the second tallest building in the city, after Casa Presei Libere. Although no longer holding that title today, it is still the tallest hotel in Bucharest.

It became the hotel of choice for foreign press in Bucharest. Indeed, during the Romanian Revolution of 1989, the balconies of the InterContinental were a privileged point to report on the repression of the protests in University Square.

In 2007 the hotel transitioned from the long-standing franchise agreement to a management contract with the InterContinental Hotels Group.


The building is designed so that each room has a unique panorama of the city. The highest 2 floors (21 and 22) contain conference rooms and a health centre with an outdoor terrace, indoor swimming pool and fitness centre.

The Imperial Apartment at the 19th floor has two bedrooms and a total area of 240 square meters. The apartment contains white Italian walnut furniture polished with gold and Murano glass light fixtures. In its living room there is a fully functioning Steinway & Sons white piano which was specially brought in for Nigel Kennedy's stay at the hotel in winter 2007.[3]
