I found a $20 CAD bill in my backpack and decided to get some Romanian currency. The initial plan was to catch the free tour at 10:30AM. We underestimated how long it was going to take us to walk to the meeting spot and missed it. Instead, we went to McDonalds to get a snack while re-strategizing the day's activities.

The grandeur of the Palace is overwhelming which was Ceaușescu's aim. Now it is used for parliament, tourism,shops and even a swimming pool. Though it can be seen as an unpleasant reminder for Romanians of the hard times that were not as long ago as ...

I arrived at 5:00pm and could not wait to see Cat again - this was to be our last stop together before she headed back to Canada with Anna and Gen. Bonus was that my good friend Juha is also in Bucharest. It ıs a good thing because he knows his way around and helped the girls out when the apartment scam happened and helped ...

After a dull star, 10 of us found a great little gem of a pizzeria hidden and stopped for lunch and a much needed drink. After lunch half the group headed back after a difficult search for this palace. Considering it is the second largest building (by volume) in the world, we couldn't bloody see it! But Max, Finton, Lauren and myself persisted and finally found the palace.
On arrival into the entrance hall I almost fainted from the heat and spent ...

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.
Okay for the price - but noisy!
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.
The hotel is a few minutes walk from Piata Romana, a big square (of which there are many in Bucharest). From there you can get taxis, buses or the metro.. The hotel is on a quiet side road but that's where the quiet ends! The rooms, whilst spacious and clean, were very prone to noise. The hotel is small and though we were on the first floor, due to the open design of the building, we could often hear lots of what was going on in the lobby. On New Year's Eve, the owners seemed to be having a private part in the lobby and restaurant. When we got back in the early hours of the morning the party was still in full swing and so loud. Guests weren't informed or invited and we couldn't even hear the TV in our room and had to turn it up full blast - there was no way we were going to be able to sleep. The owners seemed oblivious to their hotel guests.
The restaurant was small and breakfast was adequate, the usual cereal, cheeses, meats, bread and jams.
The hotel was just generally lacking in facilities, a mini bar but no ice machine in the building and twice there was no hot water (not the best start on Jan 1st just before flying home....)!
Also don't take their transportation at €25. Taxis are so much cheaper and a good way to get around.
Overall experience OK, but wouldn't stay there again.
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.
