Looking for something authentic with character? You've found it. This apartment is not your typical communist block. This is a historic apartment building with charm and grand size.
Situated on Calea Victoriei (Victory Avenue) which is a major avenue in central Bucharest and has remained the upmarket shopping strip of european designers over the years. You are walking distance to all major museums, government buildings ,parks, bars and restaurants Bucharest has to offer. The neighbourhood is located in one of the safest and friendliest place in Bucharest downtown. The apartment is next door to George Enescu Museum with amazing architecture and elaborate works.
This apartment is romantic, modern and comfortable oozing with charter from the second you step into the building. The apartment is located off the main street facing into the George Enescu Museum for quite and peace.
With all modern day comforts, you are going to get a good nights sleep and wake up refreshed for a walk to the old town of Bucharest just down the road. The apartment is conveniently located close to a supermarket, shops (also a locate piata) and pharmacy. Five Min walking distance to the Metro line, trams and buses.
The apartments has two bedroom, two bathrooms with showers and toilets. Plus study and lounge room. A sofa bed is also available in the lounge for an extra person. A balcony overlooking Gerorge Enescu Museum is a wonderful way to spend the afternoon in the sun.
The owners are an Australian/Romanian couple that understand the needs of travellers through their own experience and cleanliness and presentation of the apartment is a high priority.
Two bedroom, two bathrooms with showers and toilets.

No more to say but...enjoy!
*Update*: I've been asked about the safety of the building to systemic risk. I can assure you the building is sound. All buildings with systemic risk in Bucharest have a 'red dot' sign posted at the entrance of the building. This specific building has no such risk and after inspection by official government personal passed all tests and placed in the safe category.
No smoking in the house.
Greeted by Matei who was very polite and helpful in assisting with anything we could have needed.
The apartment was exactly as described, and was in a great location which is within an easy walking distance of everything we needed for our trip.
Highly recommend, and should I ever be back in Bucharest I would definitely look into the possibility of staying here again.
Great location! Great place! Great host!
highly recommended !
will certainly book it next time she in Bucharest.
Matei was a perfect host. He took time to tell us about Bucharesti, and even loaned us a travel book. He is an old soul in a young body.
The apartment was great, lots of space, and free parking was nearby. Great location and was exactly as described.
Do you want to trade the apartment for a house in Utah, USA?
Greeted by Matei who could not have made me feel more at home and welcome. A young chap who I later learnt had helped create the gorgeous apartment that I'd be staying in chosen because of its location directly opposite a gorgeous, protected building. En route to the Calae Victoria, a street I knew we'll because of a recent stay there, Matei pointed out a good bank where I could exchange some euro's which I did.
The apartment had everything I needed nearby . A well stocked mini mart which was open 24/7 stocking everything I needed and some great restaurants particularly AD HOC where you could see the food being cooked . Also got to know the friendly staff really well. Just around the corner walking right towards town and then right again there is a bistro where I'd recommend a pot of green tea.
The apartment was everything I'd hoped for and more. The lift was exquisite. A real antique which I never got tired of using up to the third floor and room 16 which felt like home after a ten day stay. I was staying alone for the purposes of writing and boy did I get some done inspired by the view ahead. There is a flow to the apartment which is warm and secure. I was fortunate to experience the atmosphere of 3 days snow. I never got tired of taking pictures from the balcony depending on the changing light.
The beds were comfortable and the use of two bathrooms was great. I spent a great deal of time exploring the city and nearby towns such as Senaia and Brasov( well 2-2.5 hours by train!)
I simply can't recommend his apartment enough and I'll definitely be back!
Huge thank you to Matei!!!
Clean, comfortable apartment, central location, and great value (apt has two bedrooms and two bathrooms). Washing machine and airport pickup (for 25 euros) also a plus.
This was our 2nd or 3rd stay at Alex & Amy's apt, and that uncertainty is sort of the point of this review. It just feels so much like home -- who's counting? You'll be working locally with Matei, who I think is Alex's brother, and a nicer, smarter and more helpful young man you're not going to find. We are frequent travelers to Romania (my wife is Romanian) and have rented 7 or 8 apts over the last 5 years. This place is the best we've found, and Matei is the finest 'manager' around. The very few issues we've had, he takes care of it, quickly and correctly. The furnishings and everything is exactly as you would want them. You may see a few older comments mentioning a hot water issue, but we just stayed there and they've fixed that issue. If you're visiting Bucharest and you want to be close to Pta Victoriei, Romana and only a 10-minute walk to the Lipscani, this is the place for you. And now that they've fixed the sidewalks on Calea Victoriei, it's even better. Highly-highly recommended...
Die Wohnung ist wunderschön und entspricht genau den Bildern und der Beschreibung im Internet. Sehr zentrale Lage, tolles Haus, schöner alter Lift, der auch funktioniert. Alles ist in nächster Nähe (Metro, Supermarkt). Ich habe mich total wohl und zu Hause gefühlt. Wunderbarer Ausblick von Küche und Wohnzimmer aus!!! Mathei war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, sehr unkompliziert und entgegenkommend. In der Wohnung war alles vorhanden, was man zum angenehmen Wohnen braucht, sie ist geschmackvoll und praktisch eingerichtet. Man spürt in dem Quartier das Flair von "old Bucharest". Es war ein rundum schöner und angenehmer Aufenthalt für mich und ich hoffe, dass ich wieder mal zurückkehren werde. Danke für alles!
