Bucharest City Center Bucharest|0.3km from downtownFirst, I have to say Thank you fellow tripadvisor members for the help in my choosing Europa Royale Bucharest Hotel. This hotel was perfect for our three night stay at the end of a Balkan three country tour with Gate 1 that completed in Bucharest. We had already partially toured the city with our group, and we picked this hotel because of the location (almost perfect part of the city for a wide variety of interests). The price of the hotel was reasonable. Over the three additional days staying in Bucharest, it was so convenient each day to explore very economically the other areas around by using the subway, which is very good, inexpensive, very easy to use and it is very close to the hotel. There is a small grocery store about two blocks from the hotel, which came in handy, purchasing extra water needed, etc. (we were there in June, getting warm then). The Promenade shopping mall is just across the way. Old Town is right there behind the hotel, so plenty of choices for restaurants there. Unirii Square is the location of the Hotel, so the park and the fountains are right across the street. It is a busy area, but the hotel was quiet and we had no problems with any noise and our air conditioning was fine. We had breakfast each day and it was good. Room was clean, comfortable and the staff efficient and pleasant. Happy to be of help to fellow tripadvisor members with this great review of the hotel. Tripadvisor has been so helpful through all our travels, we must always continue to help each other as best we can, enjoying our passion for travel.
