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.
... later, actually get moving, and take the long walk to the Pizza Restaurant that Mellissa and I went to. Mellissa, if you're reading this,.....sure miss you!
Well,....I never made it to the Pizza Restaurant. Just stayed in the room, and rested ALL day!

... actually received a tour of the inside of this building and were amazed at the quality of the details--the extensive use of marble and crystal--all from Romania. It is said that the project cost over 10 Billion US dollars--not including labor. Labor was forced by the government. It went like this--"Comrade, you will leave your factory job making lamps tomorrow and will join the workforce at the palace You will receive ...
... in the snow in the front yard, Terry built his first snowmen. In the arvo we went to the Palace of Parliament with Rachelle and took a tour through. A massive building, only built in 1984 under the Communist leader Ceausescu. Then walked through Lipscani, the old part of Bucharest, had a beer and Romanian snack in Caru cu bere then went to a restaurant in the old caravan for dinner.

... under 25s so they changed my birth year to 1987 so I didn’t have to pay it, they also gave me the no excess insurance extra for 20euro instead of 30, they let me email them the voucher later as I hadn’t printed it and was supposed to, they gave me an upgrade on my car to the national Romanian car and to top it all of they gave me GPS rental free (I think they realised I had no clue where I was going). ...

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.
