About this listing

Butterfly Guesthouse is on the first floor of an old villa, from 1915 and keeps most of the original features.
It has 3 bedrooms (each with different furniture, from Florentine style to modern Ikea), 1.5 bathrooms, 1 living room, 1 dining room and 1 kitchen (equipped with fridge, cooker, toaster, coffee maker etc). The bedrooms are large and have queen sized beds, big wardrobes, a desk and even bookcases.
This bedroom is 15 square meters, it has a queen size bed, a wardrobe, a desk and a bookcase in case you want to relax a bit reading.
Tired after a long walk in the rain? Curl on the sofa under the blanket, grab a biscuit and a hot cocoa. Or try some toast with home made jam (different types depending on the season). Early morning? Don't forget to grab a coffee or at least a cup of tea before you leave. We are tea lovers so you will find a large variety available.
Goodies are available free of charge, of course :)
Included: towels, bed linen, toiletry, wireless internet, usage of the washing machine. For those hot summer nights, there is AC in the living room and fans are available for the bedrooms.
The kitchen, dining room, living room and bathrooms are shared with the other 2 bedrooms.
Butterfly Guesthouse is located in the very center of Bucharest, in a quiet area, close to Cismigiu Park. It is 10 minutes walk to Pta Romana, Pta Victoriei, Pta Universitatii or the main train station Gara de Nord. It is also very close to the old town - with many pubs and clubs.
Want to try a good restaurant, a nice tea room or perhaps a school of coffee?They're all 'round the corner.
Living in the center of the city means you are in walking distance to most of the important landmarks. However, if you prefer local transportation, there are 3 subway stations close by (5-10minutes walk) and plenty of bus stations.
If you get around by car, there are free parking spaces in front of the house.
The airport is situated at the outskirts of the city, but you can take a taxi, a bus or a train and get to Butterfly Guesthouse in less than an hour.

Patricia was an amazing host. communication was perfect. room very nice and clean. Great price. strongly recommend
Unfortunately Patricia wasn't home during my stay but she laid out information about Bucharest for me.
The apartment is quite close to the city center. It's just several minutes by foot to get to the inner city.
It was great to sleep in the appartment of Patricia. It is very colourful and quiet and the kitchen, sleeping room and bathroom are very clean and comfortable. We did not meet Patricia which was a pity, but we nevertheless had wonderful days in Bucharest and in the nice appartment.
50 eur for nothing. Patricia confirmed our stay and first afterwards she told us she couldn't be at the apartment before late in the evening. She then refused to refund us the automatically transferred money. We could not unbook since we made the reservation the day before expected arrival. First time on Airbnb - Patricia made it a bad one:(
We had a lovely time. our room was clean and cosy. We felt very welcome and used all the kitchen facilities.. spent time at the common living room and kitchen and felt like there is room for everyone.
The house is located perfectly, close to the center. Walking around in the street at night was quiet but still safe because it is was close to the main street.

About the Host, Patricia
I'm a dreamer. I dream with eyes wide open of a better world. I'm open minded and sociable (or at least I like to think so).
I love travelling, trekking, horse riding, swimming, board games and of course, good books.
