Tucked away in tiny, quiet a cul-de-sac street in downtown Bucharest, one may have a difficult time getting there. Not all taxi drivers know of it, nor many locals do. It' a stone throw form one of the nicest and oldest parks in the city and just 10 min walk from the University Square and the Old Town.
The hotel is nicely designed in a pre-war style on the outside although is a newly erected building (opened oct 2010). Modern minimalist and tasteful decor in lobby, restaurant, spa and rooms.
Only a small number of rooms (about 25 if I recall rightly). All of them are suites, junior or master. Excellently spaced, designed and appointed.
Spa is a little basement floor marvel, wet + dry sauna, showers, a great pool with fancy lighting. Gym room rather small.
But the restaurant is a hit.
In a city with no michelin awarded restaurants this is one of the only two restaurants in the city with the menu and kitchen run by Michelin star awarded chefs, Guy Martin (3-star).
Try their beef, their pumpkin consome and fabulos deserts, all washed down with great and rare Podgoriy Isaresco romanian red wine.
Very friendly and attentive service thoughout unlike the one offered many other pretentious and more expensive establishments. Western europeans may excuse me being blunt - the service is surprisingly close to American standard, which is somewhat rare to find and not consistent throughout western europe while in the east is simply not applicable. Here, they managed somehow to do it.
Underground and outside parking complete the amenities in city suffocated by traffic chaos and parked cars everywhere.
This is a great spot if you chose to visit bucharest for leisure (unlikely) or have to for business or personal reasons. Treat your guests at epoque and they'll be thankful.
