This beautiful building dating from 1852 was recently restored and today it houses one of Bucharest's luxury hotels. Its restaurant used to be the city's most famous cafe in the 1920s and 1930s, a place of gathering for the elite of the day, artists, literary figures and politicians. Its location is great, right in the middle of downtown. The rooms are large and confortable being just restored a few years ago. I recommend that you try the pastry shop next door.
Capsa Hotel, reopened recently, is located in a prestigious building situated in downtown Bucharest and it is declared a monument of historic architecure.
Unique Quality: Completely refurbished to luxury standards, the rooms are large, confortable and full of all those little extras that make staying in a luxury hotel worthwhile.
Directions: Near the University Square
It is hard to describe the Capsa. Its restaurant used to be one of Bucharest's most famous, gathering all that social, political, literary and artistic elite of the times when this city was a little more than the mockery target of the European continent, as it is nowadays in certain reviews. It was entirely refurbished a few years ago, when both its hotel and its restaurant were turned into 5* places where the class and that exclusive, but secluded flavour can be felt even if one has a soft drink in the bar. The rooms are as classy as they can, being comparable from this point of view only with the Alcove Rooms at the Athenee Palace Hilton (which however gets a thumb down after the addition of the uninspiring Cube to the back of it) and with the new addition of the Carol Parc. As for the endowments, I think that the phrase above has said it all. As a special "pro" note, the confectionery shop next door is definitely Bucharest's best. Their papanasi are served in the finest way around, with a (more than decent) quantity (and quality) of sour cream and berry jam.
Unique Quality: Central location on Bucharest's historical avenue, a fine building with a French classical touch, good enough staff (a bit stiff at times, but that is granted once one enters this country, no matter where and when), the best history among Bucharest restaurants, cosy rooms.
Directions: Well, you cannot miss it, it is just on the main avenue in the historical district, just across the street from the Army Club, not even 5 minutes walking from University Square.
