“ Address: 164 A, Blvd. Barbu Vacarescu / Bucharest 2 / 020285 Romania „
The hotel it's situated in the north part of the Bucharest, which it's the nicest area and, of course, the most expensive. There is a lot of greenery here, lots of parks and lakes. The hotel is situated on the shore of Tei Lake and the vegetation around it really gives it a very nice look. Both airports in Bucharest are in the north part so the hotel it's only 10 minutes away from the Baneasa Airport (used more by low cost companies) and about 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the traffic, to the Otopeni Airport (commercial airlines).
Very good location, however be aware that public transportation is not handy. To go and come from the hotel you will most likely have to use a taxi, which can be costly at times, depending on the distance. Make sure you ask the reception to call a company cab for you, private taxi are a rip off.

The hotels rooms are nice and cozy, very clean and up to date. One of the times I stayed in this hotel the AC did not work but I assume it was only a temporary problem. They really like blue a lot and they use plenty of it but that didn't bother me as I actually like it in decorating.
The restaurant has 150 seats and it's quite nicely decorated. The breakfast was included and they had a good variety of sausages, salami, cereals, eggs etc It was pretty much everything you needed without going overboard. We ate dinner once but I wasn't extremely satisfied. They do run some pre-set menus, which have a good value:
Caro set-up menu - 30Euro/pers
Executive set-up menu - 25 Euro/pers
Business set-up menu- 19 Euro/pers
Standard set-up menu 17 Euro/pers
I have never used this offer so unfortunately I cannot tell you what it's included or the quality of it.
Otopeni Airport: 18Euro
Baneasa Airport 10Euro
City Tour 35 Euro
Downtown ride 5Euro
For the airport if you are 2 people the price is half so basically you pay the same amount if you are 1 or 2 persons.
They run weekend offers and when I staid there I got a double room for 2 nights, 2 people, breakfast included at around 120 Euro.
During the week the price is normally around 100Euro per night.
The best feature of the hotel is the room, which I found to be quite big and elegant. Considering all aspects I would rate it as an average 3 star hotel.
Located near the city centre.
