My tour of part of Moldova north east of. Chisinau consisted of a monastery complex set in delightful gardens but what you see are modern reconstructions of buildings that were destroyed during the Soviet period, Moldova. was part of the Russian Empire, in 1918 it became independent and joined with Romania but in 1940 they split again, Romania …
..,BUT NOT FOR ME. The night train was sublime...and you guys were worried. At first I got on the train, it's alot more up to date and cleaner than the others we had been on which was nice. But the cabin despite having 3 beds and not 6 is taken over by a big sink section so is very claustrophobic. Luckily it also has a restaurant cabin and so I could sit in there. But it was tiny. I moved beds because the other two in my room were part of a group of 3 ...

Romania is, however, incredibly cheap.!! We stayed in a hostel for 7 euro a night, drank good cocktails for less than 2 pounds each and I bought some chinos, a skirt and a hairband from the Zara there for less than 20 quid!!!
We then had another 9 hour journey after this to take us to Bulgaria.

Highest concentration outside of Jerusalem I saw the whole time in Israel. The lane director guy at the front points for me to go to the “empty line” which is awesome because the other three lines were crammed with people for about 30-40 feet and the line I was given only had two people in front of me.

How to eat it:
Make sure you are nearby a taraf who plays Romanian violin music next to your table, get a piece of home baked bread, a chilly pepper.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Bucuresti Gara de Nord Bucharest
J'ai passé 3 nuits à l'hôtel Ibis Gara de Nord au mois de février. Dans l'ensemble, j'ai passé un bon moment et c'est sans doute le point fort de mon voyage dans une ville que je ne classerais pas parmi mes préférées.
Good location but.....
I stayed in room 408 from 12/2 - 16/2.
The hotel is situated beautifully near the center of the town. The rooms are spacious and well arranged - what you would expect from an IBIS. There is also free internet in all rooms, which makes a good addition. The housekeeping staff are very friendly and prompt as well. However the good things stop there:
i) The windows do not open, so you cannot get fresh air in the room
ii) The room is too hot and the floor unit they have as "airconditioning" doesnt do anything to improve the situation
iii) The food is expensive and awful. It gave me a bad stomach all night
Bottom line is: book here if you dont plan to stay in the room much and DONT eat at all costs!
This is a real oasis of sanity in Bucharest. The location isn't great but the hotel works like clockwork. Ironically there was an Ikea conference going on there while I stayed and Ibis is really the Ikea of hotels; cheap, functional and reliable. Internet access is free in the room (!) you just have to buy a cable for 8 euro if you don't have one (which you can keep afterwards). The food in the restaurant is good, the rooms seem to have everything you need and nothing you don't (eg minibar). They don't have room service, which was my only real complaint as this place is probably largely used by single business travellers.
Nous y avons passé une nuit à l'allé et au retour de notre voyage en Roumanie. L'hôtel est très près de la gare (Gara Nord) d'où nous avons pris notre correspondance. Nous étions très contents de notre chambre à l'Ibis. Le personnel était très serviable et efficace et le petit déjeuner était adéquat, mais pas élaboré. La chambre était très propre et calme. Nous ne pouvions pas baisser la température alors qu'il faisait très chaud. Nous n'avons pas essayé de modifier la température, car c'était seulement pour une nuit, mais la prochaine fois, nous nous assurerons que la température est confortable. Nous y étions le vendredi soir et nous avons payé 59 euros (210 RON) sans le petit déjeuner. Le petit déjeuner coûte 8 euros en plus. Nous retournerons à l'Ibis Nord.
Nous sommes arrivés à l'hôtel Ibis à 8h du matin et ils nous ont immédiatement donné une chambre. La chambre était super grande et elle avait un lit sensass, une petite table, un mini frigo et une salle de bains extra. La climatisation était indispensable et elle marchait extrêmement bien. Nous n'avons donc aucune plainte à faire au sujet de la chambre, c'était extra. La plupart du personnel était super mais, nous avons eu quelques problèmes à obtenir le prix le plus bas car notre réservation n'était pas dans leur système. Un homme, en particulier, nous a dit que notre réservation n'était qu' « une feuille de papier » et qu'elle ne voulait rien dire. Heureusement, la femme qui travaillait plus tard à la réception était fantastique et nous a fait payer le plus bas prix auquel on avait fait notre réservation. Le restaurant de l'hôtel était super et chapeau à Dana qui connaissait environ cinq langues et qui pouvait passer d'une langue à l'autre alors qu'elle servait les tables. Elle était spectaculaire ! En gros, une super expérience et nous y retournerions volontiers.
Very Nice for the value
We stayed one night on our inbound and outbound legs of our trip to Romania. The hotel is very convenient to the Gara Nord train station where we connected with our train. We were very happy with the accommodations at the Ibis. The staff was very helpful and efficient and the breakfast was adequate but not elaborate. The room was very clean and quiet but we could not lower the temperature and it was very warm. We didn't bother attempting to correct the temperature because it was only one night but the next time we'll make sure the room temperature is comfortable. We stayed on Friday night, 59 Euro / 210 RON without breakfast. Breakfast is 8 Euro additional. We will stay at the Ibis Nord again.
We arrived at the Ibis at 8am and they gave us a room straight away. The room was a fantastic size, great bed, a little table, mini fridge, great bathroom. The aircon was well needed and worked extremly well. No complaints at all about the room, it was awesome. Most of the staff were great but we had trouble with our booking not being on the system so we had a bit of trouble getting the cheaper rate. One man in particular told us our booking was just a "piece of paper" and didnt mean anything. Luckily though the lady on reception later was fantastic and charged us at the lesser rate that we had booked at. The restaurant at the hotel was great, big thumbs up to Dana who knew about five languages and could switch back and forth as she moved between tables. She was awesome! Overall a great experience and would definately stay there again.
Ibis: clean and well maintained
Stayed at the Ibis Gara du Nord for one night. Room was clean, furnishings like new. Price is reasonable. Location is convenient for the train station (next block). Staff speak English. Be aware of differences between the hotel linked taxis out front. The Mercedes taxi costs more than the standard car, the meter rate being higher.
I stayed at the Hotel Ibis in Bucharest on February 27, 2005. Hotel is clean, safe, and well run; rooms are comfortable and functional. Restaurant has decent food; staff is fluent in English. A good value in Bucharest.
Grateful for the VALUE of the Ibis formula
IBIS is the same everywhere: clean and predictable. I've never been so glad to see one as in Bucharest, which is neither. The staff was very friendly and I really had an "oasis" feeling.
