If you find the Centru Vechi a bit too busy or touristy then take a walk along Boulevard Carol 1 towards the Armenian Church. The area has some architectural gems and has a real feeling of faded grandeur. The terrasse at the Banat is a great place to people watch and to experience the feel of old unreconstructed Bucharest.

We had 2 nights there and as others have said, you can't beat the location. I liked the old charm of the hotel and the french atmosphere with the cafe at ground level and the tables on the street, Our room was very spacious with a long passage leading to the bathroom and a separate area where we could have...

Built in 1930 and it looks and feels it. I haven't figured out why in these older building the first floor is really the third so you have to carry your luggage two flights to get to the elevator, especiality after traveling for 17 hours. I always bring too much. But that's the worst of it. The elevator is a... More

As others have said, the location cannot be beat in this old fashioned backpackery place- you are short walk from the magic Lipscani district with its wide selection of cafes, clubs and one-off shopping experiences. In fact, this is probably why Banat doesn't bother much about modernising the rooms- if things like missing glass in light fixtures and 70s style... More

I spent four nights at Banat Hotel and, as everybody says, the location, is excellent. My stay was pleasant, the room spacious, clean, comfortable and full of light. WiFi good, the bathroom had been recently renovated and it was clean. I read some negative comments about this hotel. I just say that for such a good price, you can't expect... More

Great location - A stones throw away from the University Metro stop and about 10-15 minutes walk away from the old town. The hotel is very dated, but that said, it's incredibly good value given the location. Provides a very adequate breakfast thrown in (try the option with the fried eggs - they were ridiculously free range and tasty). Reception... More

We loved the location, the architectura, the huge size of the rooms, the feeling of being in some sort of a flat and above all, the price! Then why such a bad rate, you'll say? Well, the old guy at the reception was funny all the way. His colleague was professional but he tried to cheat on us. Triple cheating,... More

Staying at the Banat for 6 nights. Hotel is comfortable, very cheap and clean.If you look past some worn decor you will find a very positive experience. I love this hotel, not only for its close location to the metro, buses,centre and main attractions but because its very quirky. It has an ancient lift. Not for the faint hearted but... More

The hotel room was large and had a different layout with long halls. The floors were creaky, extremely old furniture, and our wardrobe door barely opened. The bathroom was down one hallway and had a tub with a shower nozzle, but no shower curtain, so everything always got wet. This seems to be the case with all European bathrooms. Who... More
