Travel Blogs from Bucharest
See the pictures. The trip was embittered a little bit by an accident the day before we left and a 5 hour delay of the plane when we wanted to leave Bucharest. To me the city seemed quite run-down and dirty, but there are also nice places. Brasov is interesting, has a nice city centre.
... hard time dealing with any challenges and prefer to ignore them. We got to the station, bought our reservations for 6 leu, that $2. Train was on time and we arrived in Bucuresti by 10am as planned, just less than 3 hours. Following the directions of the conductor from the previous day, we went right to the international ticket booth and bought our reservations for the Bosphorus Express or the overnight train to Istanbul. 180 leu ...
... People's Palace (Really Nicolae Ceausescu's big ass parliament to show off). The place is immense and the city planning that spreads from the area itself is unbelievable.
Off to the mall. This mall looks like Place D'Orleans in Ottawa at first. Wait there is a skating rink inside - WTF! I did not expect that especially when it is 37 degrees outside. Juha actually plays hockey here sometimes. That would have been a site to ...
... time as possible in all that hoopla. For example I have the timing down for an afternoon/evening international flight out of Houston. They recommend being present at the airport three hours before departure. Are you supposed to be walking on your hands backwards while you’re there? I tend to arrive 45-60 minutes before scheduled departure because the long line of economy class and following security line has melted down to nothing at that point. I ...
... parsley root,
1 parsnip and 1 celeriac (root)

In the evening boil the veal bones in 5 l of water for about 3 hours, and leave it until morning in a cold place. Wash the tripe very well, with vinegar and coarse corn flower, cut to smaller sizes, take the fat out and leave until morning in cold water with the baking ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Unique Bucharest
Buena relacion calidad-precio por ser Bucarest
En realidad el hotel me pareció ser tranquilo, probablemente porque nuestra habitación daba al jardín de atrás. Un desayuno excelente (incluido en el precio), y una buena relación calidad-precio por ser Bucarest, que en general tiene la tendencia de ofrecer instalaciones de segundo mundo a precios de primer mundo. Habitaciones muy limpias y a la moda, recepción muy amable, Internet gratuito en la recepción No obstante, no cuentes con un lugar para estacionar. Sujeto a mejora: Dueño-gerente podría mantener un poco la distancia a fin de no incomodar los huéspedes.
Hotel perfecto para explorar Bucarest
Ubicación fantástica. A tres minutos a pie de Piata Romana, que es lo mas céntrico que puedas encontrar en Bucarest. Tuvimos la habitación jr. Suite por seis días. Era excelente, grande, bien amueblada. El personal fue muy amable y simpático. Conseguimos una tarifa excelente a través de booking. Hay buenos restaurantes y bares cerca. Me pareció bien tranquilo y relajado. Las calles de alrededor son en cierta manera atractivas al estilo de un Bucarest descuidado.
Hôtel parfait pour explorer Bucarest
Situation superbe : 3 minutes de marche pour aller à Piata Romana, l'une des situations les plus centrales qu'on puisse trouver à Bucarest. J'avais une suite junior et y suis resté 6 jours. C'était une excellente chambre, grande, bien meublée. Le personnel était très serviable et aimable. J'ai obtenu un super tarif en passant par booking.com. Les restaurants et les bars à proximités sont biens. J'ai trouvé l'endroit très tranquille et décontracté et les rues alentours sont plutôt jolies pour ce coin délabré de Bucarest.
Hotel perfetto per esploraee Bucharest
Posizione stupenda - a 3 minuti a piedi da Piata Romana che è molto bella e centrale a Bucharest. Siamo stati in una junior suite per 6 giorni. Camera eccellente, grande, ben arredata. Lo staff era molto cordiale ed efficiente. Ci hanno fatto un ottimo prezzo tramite booking.com. Nelle vicinanze ci sono ottimi ristoranti e bar. Era molto tranquillo e le strade della zona circostante erano belle e calme a Bucharest.
Perfect hotel for exploring Bucharest
Superb location - 3 minute walk to Piata Romana which is pretty much as central as Bucharest gets. Had the junior suite for 6 days. Excellent room, big, well furnished. Staff very helpful and friendly. Got excellent rate through booking.com. Good restaurants and bars nearby. I found it very quiet and relaxed and the streets around are kind of nice in that run down Bucharest way.
Good value for Bucharest
I actually found the hotel to be quiet, probably because our room was facing the back garden. Excellent breakfast (included in price), and good value for Bucharest, which in general tends to be 2nd world facilities for 1st world price. Very clean and fashionable rooms, helpful reception, free internet at reception, however do not count on parking spaces. Area of improvement: owner/manager could back off a little in order to not make guests feel uncomfortable.
Ottimo hotel per Bucharest
L'hotel è tranquillo, probabilmente perchè la nostra camera si affacciava sul giardino della parte dietro. La colazione era eccellente (era inclusa nel prezzo), ed è ottimo per Bucharest, che tende generalmente ad essere la 2° al mondo per i servizi e 1° per i prezzi. Le camere erano molto comode e pulite, alla reception erano efficienti, il servizio internet era gratuito, ma non contate di trovare parcheggio. Cosa si potrebbe migliorare: il proprietario/gestore potrebbe essere un pò meno invadente per non disturbare i clienti.
I went to Bucharest for a few nights to celebrate New Year. The city is perhaps one of the least interesting I have been to but was still fun for a few days.
Very clean, excellent personal attention. A +
My wife and I spent three nights in The Hotel Unique and it was a very pleasant surprise, everything was very clean, the attention was personal and helpful. The breakfast better then expected. The location is also very nice in a quiet street and yet not too far from the center of the old Bucharest, shops, museums etc.
