Where to stay in Bucharest

Making it easy to choose the neighborhood that suits your needs the most.
Piata Romana
Central Bus Metro
Gaining in popularity and located right on one of the main metro lines that goes straight up and down the city center, this can be an ideal and very affordable place to live. With cafes, shops and restaurants galore and an easy walk away from Calea Victoriei and the Old Town, this young-centric section of the city is as hip as it is convenient. There's something for everyone here, with stunning pre-war villas lining the streets, mixed in with traditional churches, local eateries, large hotels and office buildings,
Old Town
Central Bus Metro Tram
The heart of the Old Town, this area is always lively and crowded. Narrow, pedestrian-only cobblestone lanes are full of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops, with a handful of quieter streets on the outskirts. The architecture ranges from impressive to quaint to semi-dilapidated as tourists and locals hang out, visit the historical sights, line up for ice cream and then party hard all night.

Centered around the beautiful and historical Cismigiu Park, this somewhat quieter residential and business zone is only a few minutes walk from the lively Lipscani area or the main bouleverd, Calea Victoriei. With slightly lower prices and more local shops, as well as good access to public transportation, this is an ideal location to be in the center without the main crowds and noise.
Calea Victoriei
Bus Metro
This very central neighborhood is focused around a main, busy avenue that travels all the way from Victory Square to Unirii Square. It's known for its upscale shops, hotels and cafes, as well as museums, major historical sites and the gorgeous Atheneum concert hall. It's one of the more expensive areas to live in but deals can be had in the smaller streets just off of the busy avenue.

Leaning towards the high-end, this quiet area is home to the Presidential Palace as well as botanical gardens, the national opera, museums and many historical villas. There are also plenty of parks and tree-lined streets, which is one of the main reasons for its rise in popularity among a diverse collection of people. While not in the exact city center, there are decent connections via metro and tram.

One of the most expensive areas in the city, this leafy, laid-back neighborhood feels as exclusive as it does charming. Encompassing the peaceful Floreasca Park and close to the wonderful Herastrau Park (the largest in the city) and its lakes, nature lovers will feel at home here. Hip cafes sit next to long-running traditional bakeries, beautiful old mansions sit next to buildings brimming with modern designs and everything one could need is always nearby. With nearby trams and the metro, reaching the city center is quite easy too.
Central Bus Metro Tram
Situated around the massive Unirii Square and park, the location is perfectly central. Only minutes by foot from the Old Town as well as major tourist sites, good restaurants and cafes, a shopping mall and plenty of interesting neighborhoods to explore. While noisy and busy in the square, and on the pricier side, the location simply can't be beat no matter what kind of experience one might be looking for.
Gradina Icoanei
Central Bus Metro Tram
Quiet and authentic, set among gorgeous old mansions, lovely small parks, tea gardens and local eateries. It's still in the city center and only a short walk from other popular neighborhoods as well as a metro station. This area offers a peaceful and safe residential experience with a charm that has remained the same for nearly a century.
