    Next to Cismigiu Gardens and the Old Town...

    by

    This property is located around the corner from the City Hall, near (like in "across the street and 30 m. to the right") from Cismigiu Gardens, as well as very close (like in "at a 5 minute walk") to the Old Town, the CEC Palace or the National History Museum, not to mention Macca - Villacrosse Passage with its pleyade of cafes. The place itself is - again - not very inviting from the outside, and inside you will find a standard 3* hotel with a fair (nothing more, nothing less) service. The price is good (for Bucharest) and the location - as convenient as this city can provide at that rate. The hotel does not have a restaurant (they only cater for groups in the breakfast hall), but the nearby Casa Gorjana or the even better Vatra farther to the North along the Brezoianu are good options for a meal out. A face lift (especially in terms of the lobby) is planned, but not certain in terms of when.

    Unique Quality: Average place at a good price for Bucharest and a great location (it can be a bit noisy, especially the rooms opening towards Regina Elisabeta, but they are all A/C and the windows are kind of soundproof).

    Directions: In the same building with an impossible to miss Mc Donald's.

  • good if you play your cards right!

    Ok. They have good aircon, the bathrooms are good, it is clean, the buffet breakfast is really very good, the rooms are spacious, they have TVs and fridges, you will be comfortable here.

    They have no internet, but there are 2 nearby that the hotel staff will point out to you (but to save you the drama of that conversation, go out of the door and turn left to the main road (Elisabeta), then turn right and walk along. About 400 metres on your right is a basement internet place that has good rates and isn;t as dodgy as it looks. Smoky, though. The smoking ban has not yet come to Romania!

    They sometimes have very good maps in stock. If they don't, you will find it very hard to find one elsewhere, so ask them for directions to their sister hotel Opera (about 5 mins away), and ask there. They often have them.

    Unique Quality: They have a sign by the phone that says they start charging from 20 seconds after you pick up the phone, so even if you make a call and don't get through, you will be charged. And by God, they abide by this rule! Don't ask them to disregard it - they won't.

    The staff - you must work very hard, but if you do, you will be rewarded. They can be so lovely and helpful. They can also be spectacularly rude. So if they are rude, keep smiling and be patient. This is a good rule for Romania, actually. Eventually they will crack and give you a slight smile that you may take as an offer for life-long friendship. But getting arsey with them will accomplish absolutely nothing and probably end up in an ugly situation.

    Directions: Elisabeta street, close to Univeritai Piata and Revolutionai Piata
