History

Our history

Continental Hotels is the most important Romanian hotel group, this statement being supported by our presence on the hotel market since 1991, when the company was incorporated, but also by the quality of our services.

Initially, the Continental Hotel Chain included the homonymous hotel complexes in Bucharest, Sibiu, Cluj-Napoca, Tîrgu-Mureș and Constanța, amounting to a total of 403 rooms, plus the Continental Hotel in Timișoara, which has never really become part of the chain, although it was assigned to the Continental Company, under a Government Decision.
