Bucharest was dubbed the "Paris of the East", as much for its hectic and cosmopolitan social scene as for its architecture with beggars waiting outside the best restaurants and appalling slums within a few steps of the elegant Bucharest apartments and palaces inhabited by rich citizens.
The city is such a mix of history (part of it unfortunately communist) - as the authorities are now restoring the historical center (the cars are not allowed!) and modern buildings. One of the greatest architectural styles is "brancovenesc" (a XVIII century Romanian leader) which you can observe at cotroceni palace (actually, presidential residence) and most of the buildings in "Heroes" zone.
There also many clubs (don't miss Kristal, the office) but also restaurants - like locanta jaristea, livada cu visini.
Within Bucharest, you have a choice from taxis, maxi-taxis, the bus, the Trolley-bus, Trams, and a very good Metro system, all of them fairly economical according to western standards. So, if you ever wanted to visit a country before everybody else finds out about it, this is the one to come to!!! So as they in Romania..."Noroc"(Good Luck) and "Drum Bun (pronounced Droom Boon)" ("Have a nice trip")
Bucharest apartments are an alternative to hotels. Modern spaces and sense of comfort, fully equipped, nestled in the central areas of Bucharest, they offer a better value for your money.
That is why recently Bucharest apartments have become the real alternative to overpriced Hotels in Bucharest. Accommodation in Bucharest Apartments has the main advantages over hotels: extra space and comfort to relax, privacy and safety to enjoy your stay in Bucharest and central locations at low rates.
In order to book an apartment there's no need to pay in advance. There's no normative checkout time. The checkout is made in accordance with the next check-in.
You can rent a self-catering studio apartment, at affordable price that is equipped with modern convenience, making the apartment a particularly good choice for businessmen or couples.
In the luxury sector you also can find something interesting. For example a cozy suite nestled in the very center of Bucharest tastefully designed, with laminate floors, comprising an elegant sitting room and a restful bedroom with bathroom endowed with the newest type of jacuzzi shower cabin, besides the customary bath attachments.
Or a business class flat located in the economical and historical centre of the city, a very safety area, full of entertainment opportunities with a modern layout and the comforts like red sofas and armchairs, mini-bar and so on.
Another option is a completely modified common block flat with a relaxing living room (large windows, spotlights, ceramic tiles and warm decorations), elegant furniture (leather sofa and armchairs) and a balcony facing the street.
But note that any accommodation, be it Bucharest apartments or hotels, is more expensive than elsewhere. And since other tourist's services are also slightly underdeveloped, you will have to put some efforts to find decent Bucharest vacation rentals or other tourists' agencies, because there is no tourism office in Bucharest and neither hotels nor travel agents can help much either, since there are scarcely any brochures published in foreign languages. But if you are a lover of indigenous folk motives instead of tourists' oriented attractions, Bucharest hits the spot perfectly.
