The communication was outstanding. We arrived really late yet upon arrival there was somebody awaotimg us to give us the keys and show us the apt. The apt really was as described with the funky disco shower/tub/whirlpool combo!! Awesome. It's located just off a posh mainstreet near museums and a little park. It truly is an amazing building as we could see when we left. All amenities needed were provided and everything was in working order except a minor problem with getting the keys out of the outside door, which they'll attend to right away, perfect:)
Cet appartement très spacieux est bien situé dans un quartier agréable proche du métro (5 à 10 min à pied). Nous avons apprécié la décoration avec de beaux meubles et des tableaux. La salle de bain et en particulier le jacuzzi a fait le bonheur de mes enfants (et de nous aussi).
We have mixed feelings and feedback regarding this apartment. It didn’t meet our expectations; we had a positive assumption based on the photos, previous guest’s reviews and communication with the Danube Apartments manager and employees. Being born in Bucharest and knowing the fast progress my city has been making, having tried other properties while visiting it (the last one was flawless) I know that Bucharest also has European standard accommodations / fabulous places at fair prices. For someone that doesn’t know much about Romania, for those that believe that we are way behind the modern civilisation evolution, when they arrive there, it could be a big surprise that actually, Bucharest and therefore this apartment, is great! There are many things that bothered us (the uninviting entrance, the poor state of the building, at least the outside walls, the kitchen, bedroom, toilets etc.) but I openly say that the communication with Anca (we didn’t meet her in person though), Alina and all other employees was impeccable. They were all professional, ready to help, genuinely friendly. That’s why I will communicate them in a private message all the actual issues and I am convinced that they will improve everything necessary. Most important is to invest more love and appreciation to have it safe, cozy, practical, inviting, clean and charming. To conclude in a positive manner, I loved the silence in the apartment, the area is very central and charming and appreciated to have a parking spot reserved.
This is a nice apartment, very centrally located. Alina, who was our contact, was fantastic and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed, at any time. There a few negatives - the bed was not particularly comfortable and the kitchen was very sparsely stocked - but I'd still recommend it because of their responsiveness. The wifi is good, heating good and can be controlled, nice shower and amazing spa bath, nice view out to trees, very secure, bed OK once I turned the mattress!
Tout d'abord il faut préciser qu'il ne s'agit de l'appartement d'un particulier. Nous avons pu récupérer les clés en avance car il n'y avait pas d'occupants la nuit précédent notre arrivée, cela nous a bien arrangés. L'appartement est très grand, et à première vue nous avons été enchantés. Il est à 5 grosses minutes à pieds de la Piata Victoriei et son métro.
Mais comme dans beaucoup d'hôtels ou de pensions roumains ou nous avons été, les finitions n'étaient pas à la hauteur de la première impression. Placards ayant vécu de meilleurs jours, et surtout problèmes avec la robinetterie et l'eau. Le système mitigeur à la cuisine fonctionne bizarrement et nous avons bien cru ne pas avoir d'eau... A la salle de bain, le bouton du mitigeur nous est resté plusieurs fois dans les mains. Et un jour, l'eau froide n'est arrivée qu'après... les douches de deux personnes! Nous avons dû appeler car nous avons cru qu'il y avait un problème avec la chaudière. quelqu'un est venu 5 minutes après notre appel et le problème a été réglé... miraculeusement puisque l'eau chaude est "revenue" à la douche. (un peu l'impression d'être une idiote, mais nous étions 4 à n'avoir pas réussi à avoir de l'eau chaude... 4 idiots, ça fait un peu beaucoup...)
Le lendemain rebelotte, nous avons bien cru ne pas pouvoir nous doucher chaud. Mais finalement, une eau tiède nous a permis de nous doucher.
Autre petit souci: pas de prise (hormis une à plus de 2m de hauteur!!) à la salle de bain pour brancher de séchoir... pas pratique du tout! Dans la salle de bain, le chauffe central ne marchait pas, alors que dans les autres pièces le système (pompe à chaleur) pouvait être allumé manuellement. Un peu juste en cette fin septembre quand on prend la douche...
Ces problèmes ont entaché notre séjour, mais il n'en reste pas moins que cet appart est agréable, malgré ces petits soucis.
We went to Bucharest for 4 days for a congress meeting and stayed at Anca's apartment. She proposed to meet at a meeting point around the corner which was easy to find. The apartment is cosy, spacious and very clean and Anca immediately made us feel welcome. She took the time to tell us something about the city and mark some places on the city map. It is a 20 min walk to the city center, or you can take a taxi (which are very cheap). I would definitely recommend this apartment! And oh... the jacuzzi was really nice :)
Our host was fantastic. Every need was catered for. The apartment was beautiful , clean, spacious and luxurious, and in a great location. Highly recommended.
