Best Place To Stay in Bucharest

If you are looking for hotel recommendations and tips on where to stay in Bucharest, you have come to the right place. I recently visited Bucharest and spent a little over a week in the Romanian Capital. Here are my tips and recommendations.

Where to Stay in Bucharest – Old Town

Most sights of Bucharest are located in and around the Old Town area that is very walkable and you can explore by foot. If you are visiting Bucharest for the first time and want to see the main attractions and explore the local nightlife, I highly recommend Bucharest Old Town.

The Bucharest Old Town neighborhood is quite famous for its lively nightlife, so most hotels I recommend are just outside of the actual neighborhood. This will allow you to explore and enjoy the area but also get a good night’s rest and quiet time.

Best Hotels in Bucharest

Radisson Blu Bucharest

Pool at Radisson Blu Bucharest - Where to stay in Bucharest - Best Bucharest Hotels

The Radisson Blu Bucharest was my absolute favorite. I really liked the modern, sleek design, perfect location, and amenities of this 5 Star Hotel in Bucharest.

The pool at the Radisson Blue Bucharest is stunning, almost like a tropical oasis in the middle of the city – including a Tiki Bar and lots of lounge spaces to hang out and enjoy yourself in the sun, read a book, and play in the water. City trips can be quite tiring, but just 1 hour in the pool can make you feel like you were swept away to some lush island, and relaxation is almost instant.

The rooms are modern and elegant, perfect for tourists and business travelers alike. I recommend upgrading to the Business Class Room because it comes with a Nespresso coffee maker and the most scrumptious breakfast buffet. From fresh Omelettes and eggs in any style to fresh fruits and vegetables, delectable cheeses and smoked fish, Balkan-style treats, and flaky pastries, this breakfast buffet at the Radisson was by far the best I had in Romania!

Atheene Hilton Bucharest

The Atheene Hilton is another great choice if you are looking for a 5 Star Hotel in Bucharest but if you prefer more traditional elegance with a lot of history. The hotel is over 100 years old, and while obviously its amenities and comforts are to today’s standards, the Atheene has character and flair that gives a unique atmosphere compared to a modern hotel.

The service is impeccable and their Executive rooms are extra spacious – the largest non-suite hotel room I have ever stayed in, which is impressive for a city hotel.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to try their breakfast, but if you book an Executive Room, you have access to the Executive Lounge on the 5th floor, which gives you incredible views over the city, free drinks, and a selection of appetizers and snacks that can easily substitute a full meal.

Where to Stay in Bucharest Romania Suite at Intercontinental Bucharest

Intercontinental Bucharest

While I only visited this hotel and did not stay here overnight, I can still recommend this 5 Star Hotel in Bucharest. Why? Because I spend a few hours in their incredible spa, this alone makes staying here worthwhile. Located on the 7th floor, the Spa overlooks the whole city. Relax and spoil yourself a little while enjoying the view of the buzzing city below you.

The buffet-style lunch also offers something for every taste and nicely fuels you up for your city adventures.

K+K Hotel Elisabeta

If you like a sleek and modern design, with some pops of color, the K+K Hotel might be a good choice for you. The location could not be better. Just across the street from a Metro stop and less than 5 minutes from the Old Town, makes this hotel the perfect place to explore the city, enjoy the nightlife, but still get a restful night.

Orhideea Residence & Spa

If you want to mix in some rest and relaxation before, during or after exploring Bucharest, the Orhideea Residence & Spa might be a great choice for you. They have a stunning spa, including pool, sauna, and Turkish steam bath. Usually, city-trips can be quite exhausting, but if you stay at this hotel, you can make some time for some much-needed R&R.

The hotel is located about halfway between Bucharest Old Town and Lakul Morii, a beautiful lake that you can explore on foot or by boat. The Metro is also close by, so even though you are a bit away from the hustle of the main tourist sights, you can explore a more authentic side of Bucharest and enjoy it at a slower pace.
