This is, as it says, in the heart of Old Town. It's a small area but nicely preserved with some quaint little souvenir shops and wonderful restaurants.

There are probably a handful of streets you should know in Bucharest: Victoria, Elizabeth (after the first queen) and Lipscani. This is one of the entrances and main thoroughfares in Old Town.

We've just stayed in Grand Pier hotel, about a ten minute walk from old town but nice and reasonably cheap.
