The apartment is much better than it looks in the pictures because it has lots of natural light which make it warmer. I was afraid that it would be dark because I think they took the pics by night with artificial lighting. We felt home from the first moment we entered. Catalina's mother was there to give us the key and explained everything quickly before leaving us. Everything was clean and working. It has three wonderful terraces and the one in the dining room it's perfect to have a late drink or coffee after a day hanging around. We arrived very soon by bus (line 783) from the airport and considering the last stop of the bus is 10 minutes away from the apartment I think it gives a plus to the place. Quite, clean and bright. Several supermarkets and shops nearby and at least two coffee shops.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this apartment. It is very cozy, and welcoming. The building is located on a major boulevard and it is very easy to find it. The apartment though doesn't face the street and it is very quiet ( a very important request for my vacation).
There were changes in my vacation plan and Catalina was very accommodating. Thank you ! She answered promptly to my messages I sent before I decided to rent the apartment and of course during my stay.
I received though an unpleasant surprise from AIRBNB. They blocked my access to my account for the second part of my vacation. I understand and appreciate security checks but 3 days is a long time. ( I received the message that I am ok when I arrived back to US). My husband in US, was able to access the account and Catalina was again very accomodating in providing a different communication link.
We returned to Catalina and Alexandru's apartment for a second stay and it was nice to return to our Bucharest "home". this time we were met by Catalina's mother. As with our previous satay we found the apartment to be clean, quiet and in a convenient location. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to potential guests.
We spent 5 nights in this apartment. We chose the apartment primarily because it was close to family that we were visiting but also because of the previous positive reviews. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. We did not attempt to cook there but it appears to have a selection of utensils for self catering. There are supermarkets within walking distance. We easily walked to tourist attractions such as Palace of the Parliament and Old Town although more northern destinations are too far. There was no noticeable traffic noise although we periodically heard people coming and going in neighbouring apartments. I'd happily recommend this apartment.
