Highly recommended for the business traveller or for conferences, though the leisure traveller may prefer a more traditional hotel rather than an international hotel which could be in any city in the world.

HOTEL INTERCONTINENTAL 5*
The tallest hotel with exceptional panoramic views, situated in the centre of Bucharest. This was where the western-press were besieged during the 1989 'Revolution' watching the events unfolding below them. Large, refurbished rooms with en suite bathrooms, cable TV, telephone, minibar and internet access. Excellent leisure and conference facilities including a swimming pool, restaurants, bars, laundry service, hairdresser, exchange desk and secure parking.

Indoor and outdoor restaurants, bar, conference facilities, and parking. Exceptional value for money.

HOTEL OPERA 3*

Beautiful, recently refurbished Art Deco hotel between Cismigiu Gardens and Calea Victoriei. One of our firm favourites. 33 elegant, air-conditioned rooms and suites with en suite bathrooms, cable TV, telephone and minibar. Relaxing atmosphere including coffee bar, bar, intimate business lounge and a small summer terrace, room and laundry service, and parking. No restaurant but the traditional Vatra Restaurant is just a few doors away.

HOTEL CENTRAL 3*

Standard, 3 star hotel on Bulevard Regina Elisabeta, close to Cismigiu Gardens and Calea Victoriei. Large rooms with en suite bathrooms, air conditioning, minibars, cable TV and contemporary decor. Other facilities include a restaurant, bar and parking.

HOTEL REMBRANDT 3*

A very nice, newly opened small hotel (15 rooms) in a renovated 1925 town house located in the historic Lipscani district of the city centre. Rembrandt offers elegant, comfortable rooms ranging from spacious business class to smaller tourist class rooms. All of them comprise ensuite bathrooms, cable TV with CD and DVD player (hotel has a DVD/CD library), free high-speed internet access, remote controlled air-conditioning. minibar, telephone and 24 hour room service. The Rembrandt has a very pleasant relaxed atmosphere and also oncludes comfortable bar and bistro (the Klein Bar) whih serves food and drinks throughout the day.

HOTEL CAPITOL 3*
Straightforward, good value, 3 star hotel in an impressive neo-classical building on Calea Victoriei. Nice dining rooms but bedrooms rather dark and gloomy in our opinion.
HOTEL BATISTEI 2*
Pleasant, former party hotel in surprisingly quiet location close to the National Theatre and Piata Universitate. Good restaurant. Air-conditioned rooms, and certainly better than several 3-star hotels in the city.

HANUL LUI MANUC 2*

Exceptional value and genuine atmosphere. One of Bucharest's most beautiful, historic buildings situated in the Lipscani District of the city centre. Hanul lui Manuc (Manuc's Inn) is an old coaching inn with a central arcaded courtyard surrounding by elegantly carved balconies. Rooms are basic but clean with en suite bathrooms and satellite TV. Service in the very touristy courtyard restaurant is dreadful, but there are so many decent traditional restaurants in the surrounding historic centre of Bucharest (Hanul Hangitei, Casa cu Bere etc) that this doesn't matter. This is a tourist attraction in its own right with a wine cellar and restaurants. Please note that despite the hefty walls of this old building there is no air-comditioning so rooms may feel warm in July or August.
