This is one of Bucharest's oldest buildings. It is not covered by graffiti like some of the other buildings in Bucharest. It almost has a Spanish feel to it inside the main courtyard.
I did not stay here due to my Loyalty to Elvis Villa but maybe next time
Unique Quality: It has a dated feel to it that it is both warm and inviting
Directions: At the base of the Historic Quarter
This hotel was recommended to me by fellow VTer Romanian Bat and I was not disappointed. It is a very nice hotel to stay in if you like history. It had a very good feel to it. The room was very comfortable, though no a/c, so i can imagine it gets very hot in July and August. It was very clean and I really liked the location, near the piata but not on it. I did not stay long enough to use the restaurant, but was warned to avoid it. If you like hotels with a past, this is the one for you.
Unique Quality: The courtyard was amazing, even if it was raining. It gives the place a nice feel. My room looked onto the piata so it was another good view of the city as I was getting settled and ready for my travels to start.
Directions: In Piata Unirii down strada halelor. It is a little side street. The entrance is not on the piata, but across from a church, Sf. Anton. They have a sign with the name on it on that is easy to see from the piata.
The best preserved of Bucharest's old inns, Hanul lui Manuc (Manuc's Inn) is one of the best bets in terms of accommodation in the city. The rooms are simple and nice and represent a good value and the location is great - just off Unirii Square (Piata Unirii), where the downtown starts. A double room goes for around 35 euro. The building has the two tier galleries featured by the caravanserais that were common all over the Otoman Empire. Sometimes during the weekends the restaurant is hosting weddings, so if you're really sound obsessed maybe this isn't the place for you. If you decide to eat in their restaurant I would advise to check your bill (they tend to add things you didn't order). Reservations are recommended as this is a popular place. A note for history buffs: This is a historical building. Its owner, an influential Armenian called Emanuel Marzaian (better know as Manuc Bey hence the name of the place) offered the building for the signing in 1812 of the treaty that ended the Russo-Turkish war and resulted in the gain of Bessarabia by Russia. The treaty is known as the Treaty of Bucharest (1812).
CLOSED FOR RENOVATION (I hope they get rid of that dreadful staff in the process)
Hanul lui Manuc (EUR 35 / DBL BB, EUR 20 / SGL). Yes, you can stay right in this last inn that has survived in Bucharest, just across the street from the Old Court and with some great terraces all around you. Just avoid eating in their restaurant or carefully check the bill if you do.
Unique Quality: The atmosphere and the way this place has been preserved are the best features of the place.
Directions: It lies just across the street from the Old Court, bordering Unirea Square with its back.
