“Great value and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

We picked this hotel because it was small and looked as if it had character, and was situated in a good location for sightseeing as a lot was within walking distance and there are two metro stops close to hand.

We had the only room with a balcony, and can imagine that in summer this would be great for sitting outside as the evening cools down - at this time of year it wasn't as attractive given the wind chill! The room was a good size, large comfortable bed with extra pillows available, and a key operated safe in the wardrobe. The only thing that I personally missed was access to tea/coffee making facilities but that was a minor issue.

Breakfast was fine, a range of cooked meats and cheeses, yoghurt, cereal, bread for toast, juice, coffee and croissants. Omelettes can be made on request. Whilst some reviewers have said that the scope is meagre, I would have to disagree and simply state that the range is no different than most European hotels.

We found all the staff to be really helpful and friendly (despite the trying behaviour of a few of the guests) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended!

We have just spent two night at this lovely hotel in Bucharest. It was easily the best part of our visit - Bucharest, while an interesting city historically is a pretty untidy, even grubby, place. The Vila Monaco on the other hand was beautiful - lovely classy furnishings, modern bathroom, comfortable bed and immaculately clean. And a big bonus - our room No 104) opened onto a large terrace, in fact we had exclusive use. It was a perfect spot for sipping beer after sight-seeing. Maria greeted us on arrival and made us feel welcome, and was helpful with showing us how things worked and where to go for dinner. The hotel provided a detailed tourist map and guide book for Bucharest. We were able to get WiFi in the lobby (no signal in the room) but did not find that inconvenient. There were a number of English speaking TV channels - a surprise since in most other places we had visited we could only get CNN. Breakfast was served in the charming breakfast room and had the usual selection of foods provided in Europe, with personal service for cooked food (eggs). We would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Bucharest for its beautiful accommodation and also easy proximity to all of the historic places.

Room Tip: Ask for room 104 - it has a terrace.

A well-appointed 10-room inn across from the Hungarian Embassy on a relatively quiet street yet within walking distance of the sights. Welcoming staff and excellent buffet breakfast. Room 201 was on the top floor--quiet, adequate size, updated bath and good WiFi. A few reasons I did't give 5 stars: hot water took a long time (at least 5 minutes to reach the top floor, shower floor was not textured and consequently very slippery, bulb burned out in bath so rather dim, and to prevent guests from making long-distance calls, room phone is turned off making it difficult to call desk and might be a problem in an emergency.

Room Tip: Top floor slow to get hot water.

We really enjoyed our stay at this little hotel. The room was great (we were in the annex) the breakfasts were excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Great location close to the old city and not too far to walk to the main station!

A great small hotel on a quiet road, located close to a small park and within easy walk of the old city centre and local restaurants and shops. The room was great, not too small well furnished, very clean with good air-con andwi-fi coverage. Beakfast was great and the staff were all helpful, making arrangements for car parking, taxis etc. We will come back again.

I love this hotel and I strongly recommend this hotel. All was good : a service, a breakfast , an excellent location. We had a large balcony . There was a good shop-showroom of bags called Carla Rossini (Str. Jean Luis Calderon, nr 56).

Room Tip: Ask the room with a balcony.

Nicely appointed hotel on a fairly quiet road, located close to a small park and within easy walk of basic shopping needs. The room was small but nicely appointed, good wi-fi coverage and nice breakfast layout the one morning I partook. The staff were all helpful, making arrangements for taxis and tours and accesible late at night and early morning to accomodate my various comings and goings by train and air. I felt the price was very competitive for the service offered and would stay here again.

Room Tip: WIFI was fine in rooms 202 and 103
