This is a gem of a hotel. It is small with either 8 or 9 rooms but each is uniquely decorated and very comfortable. The hotel staff is wonderfully helpful and very polite. The hotel is well located for walking or tram access. Breakfast is available in the tiny breakfast room or will be served in your room, features a... More

The hotel is in few steps to the city center. Great hotel for travelling and just for a pleasure. I suggest it to every one, who wants to find perfect service and kindness. The room Ottomana is very beautiful and seems to me to be the best room among all hotels in Bucharest and not only there. Thanks to all... More

Vila Arte is located very close to Universitate square, very central, but the neighborhood is a mix of new buildings (few), and very degraded (many). At your arrival the welcome is warm, but usually it will come from the staff made of just one person, because the hotel has just few rooms, and probably the owner cannot afford more. You... More

Vila Arte is a centrally located boutique hotel, close to the Universitate Square (city center). The arrival in the hotel couldn't be better. Very friendly staff, answering all questions and assisting with luggage etc. All rooms apparently have been designed by different architects. The one I was in (first floor) was nicely decorated with all things you need and extremely... More

Hotel was fine - clean and modern rooms. Quite small hotel and breakfast was so so. Receptionists were helpful. Quite good value but that is probably because of the area. About a 30-40 minute walk to main centre and the area was quite grubby.

Great place if you like modern/artsy type places...It is small and feels a bit more like an upscale B&B. I do recommend this is you are tired of the Intercontinental, Hilton, etc (chain hotels). On a busy street so beware if you are on the first floor (like us)...it will be noisy. Other than that, nice place... I would go... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, having booked via Venere. The location is very good, easy walking distance to everthing in Bucharest, and the Ottoman room that we stayed in was very nice - spacious and comfortable with a small balcony. The staff were very helpful, and all had excellent English. They were keen to suggest places for us to... More

Nice to walk into an hotel and be met on arrival with your name.He couldnt do enough for us. I'm not going... More

2nd trip in this hotel 2011.This is a proper boutique hotel centrally located, decoration is perfect, actual, neutral whilst not feeling insipid. The service is even better, and that's why i marked it as "excellent" AirCon is quiet, beds very comfortable. Some downsides; the fitness room is too small, and on late saturday nights it's not totally silente at night... More
