It was six in the morning when I arrived to Bucharest from Lebanon. I was welcomed into a huge restaurant at Phoenicia Grand Hotel.


A huge buffet including an endless choice of food as well as beautifully set islands including bread, cereals, fruits and hot preparations. Impressive. I was not expecting to find so many choices.

I was honestly lost for choices. I didn’'t know where to start... A large display of freshly baked bread, a huge display of fruits like the ones you find at the fruits and vegetables market, with several fresh drinks prepared a la minute, loads of cereal bowls, jams of all kinds and an open kitchen where eggs are prepared...


The buffet islands:

  • The fridge of Labneh, hummus and yogurt
  • Jams in wooden pots
  • 10 choices of cereals
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Cut vegetables
  • Cold cuts and local cheese
  • Chicken liver
  • Baked white potatoes
  • Frankfurter
  • Chinese chicken
  • Rice with vegetables
  • Chicken schnitzel
  • Sautéed mushrooms
  • Eggs
  • Coffee machines
  • 7 choices of fruits
  • Olives


Now for the food:

  • I was impressed and surely didn't expect to enjoy the breakfast that much. The taste of labneh is close to the one I enjoy home, the cheese is fresh and rich in taste.; the eggs cooked with sausages or vegetables are juicy and flavorful. A mix of fresh eggs with melted cheese, a light yellow color and some interesting to start your day with.
  • I loved the selection of cold cuts presented in rolls and the bread that's freshly baked with a crunchy envelope and tender heart.
  • Lebanese bread is as good as the one we know in Lebanon.
  • Now for their selection of cakes. They were delicious. I enjoyed their adequately sweet cheesecake that crunches lightly with its biscuit bottom. The cheese used is tasty and rich in flavor and not gooey; while their Apple Crumble was also very good.
  • A double espresso followed with a cafe crème, I enjoyed my start of day happily, especially that I would be enjoying the same experience for the next five days.


I totally recommended this hotel. It’s a good enough reason to stay at Phoenicia Grand Hotel in Romania.
