With its fascinating history, incredible food, delicious desserts and amazing nightlife, Bucharest guarantees that you won’t be spending too much time in your hotel room. Even the most action-packed itinerary deserves a nice place to stay, though.
With hundreds of options, it can be tough to choose a place to stay. Do you want to be in a hotel or hostel? Is access to a spa important to you? I’ve asked seven of my favorite bloggers to share the best hotels in Romania’s capital city.
Crowne Plaza Hotel Bucharest
Analucia Rodriguez from Viajar Para Vivir
If you are looking for a super comfortable hotel with a friendly staff, a yummy buffett breakfast, well located between the city centre and the airport, Crowne Plaza Hotel Bucharest is a really good option.
The highlight for me, was the incredible room we got. First of all, it had the Sleep Advantage program. We received an amazing aromatherapy kit to sleep like a baby. Also the quality of the sheets and pillows were incredible, and our room was located in a Silence Area were the hotel hallways were super quiet during the whole night.
Besides that, our room had – prepare yourself – a stationary bike inside! Yes, incredible. You had no excuse at all to train at any hour you wanted. We also got a nice plate with healthy fruit and a bottle of wine. Excellent hotel!
Inma from A World to Travel
Located in Calea Victoriei, Golden Tulip Bucharest was just what I needed after a 15-day press trip alongside with 40 other bloggers through some of Romania’s most stunning regions like Bucovina and Transylvania.
I barely made it out of the room during the 24 hours I was there as I felt in awe most of the time, simply chilling, getting some much-needed rest and me time, and peeking out of its massive windows on the 8th floor overlooking the stunning city Bucharest is.
Highly recommended if you are into classic design with a twist, you appreciate heights and comfort and if you love sweet views!

Hotel Epoque is nestled in its own little enclave, tucked away and near to Cismigiu Park, one of the oldest public green spaces in the city. From the moment you step in the five-star hotel’s door, you’ll be greeted by Neo-Romanian decor with a hint of French elegance. Staff are friendly, helpful and the beds are incredibly comfortable! There’s also a pool, sauna and outdoor terrace to enjoy your morning coffee. Many rooms come equipped with their own wrought-iron balcony. Head here for a large dose of luxury and a real ‘retreat in the heart of the city’.
K+K Elisabeta Boutique Hotel
Kristen from Kristen Gill
K+K Elisabeta Boutique Hotel in Bucharest is a lovely modern gem centrally located to the Universitate Metro Station and a few km from the Palace of the Parliament. I walked home from most of my nights spent in the Old Town.
It has a modern design, with an outside patio deck that overlooks some of the finest architecture in the city. I loved it immediately!
The complimentary breakfast buffet offered many tempting options. My favorite was the grilled haloumi cheese and roasted vegetables. Coffee was good, and they set me up with a to-go cup on the days I was running late.
There’s a welcoming little bar/bistro on the first level, and a gym and sauna on the lower level. It was nice to use the exercise balls there to stretch out after my long flight.
I loved this hotel, and would definitely stay there again in the future.
Teresa from Brogan Abroad
Don’t let the name deceive you. Despite being a hostel, Little Bucharest has a number of private rooms that not only are they comfortable, but they are also really cute. But best of all, they offer some of the best views over the streets of the Old Town, making it one of Bucharest’s most instagrammable spots.
Its location in the hustle and bustle means that you don’t have to go far for the best restaurants, bars and cafes. But even if you don’t fancy leaving the hostel at all, just stay in and enjoy a few drinks and those views to die for from the balcony at the bar. The local atmosphere seeps into the hostel and you won’t be able to resist joining in!
The Novotel Bucharest
Upon arriving at The Novotel Bucharest, I was delighted by the quick check-in and plate of cheese and olives in my room! I loved staying at this modern luxury hotel, which retains its historic façade and is located only a few minutes walk from Old Town. The terrace had a beautiful view of the city’s classic architecture, which formed the perfect backdrop for photos. My favorite memories included eating a European breakfast outdoors on the restaurant patio, and tasting Romanian wines in their hip lobby bar.
Orhideea Residence & Spa
Brittany from The Sweet Wanderlust
When I arrived in Bucharest, I was unprepared for the beautiful architecture, rich culture and exciting nightlife Romania’s capital city had to offer. And I was definitely not expecting to walk into the most spacious hotel I’ve experienced. At 1506 sq. feet, the Large Apartment was bigger than some of the apartments I lived in after university.
The Orhideea Residence & Spa is an apartment hotel that caters to business travelers, families and there was more than one stag party at Orhideea the weekend we visited. Each apartment features large windows and a balcony. And if those views weren’t impressive enough, the included breakfast served on the 11th floor features panoramic views of the city.
The lower three floors is home to Bucharest’s biggest spa, covering over 32,000 sq. ft. Whether you’re hoping to work out, get refreshed or relax, there’s something for everyone.
