You will find Capital Plaza Hotel in the very heart of Bucharest, suitably located between Victoriei Square and Dorobanti district.

Our hotel, the most recent 4 star hotel in Bucharest centre, with its 95 rooms, 1880 Restaurant and Kubler Kaffe, is designed to appeal to business and leisure guests alike.

Where the hotel stands today, more than 100 years ago the maps showed “Bariera Herastraului” (Herastrau Gate) as one of the Bucharest city limits at the time. This is why you will discover in our hotel an atmosphere profoundly anchored in the present, though softly inspired by the flavors and history of the old city, in an effort to pay tribute and honor our forerunners. At the same time, Capital Plaza Hotel intends to inspire its guests to discover, experience, enjoy and remember the new Bucharest.

Bucharest was first mentioned in documents in 1459. It became the capital of Romania in 1862 and is the centre of Romanian media, culture, and art. Its architecture is a mix of historical, communist-era and modern.

How to get to Bucharest

By Air:

Bucharest has many connections with major cities in Europe and domestic flights between Bucharest and the largest cities in Romania, but it can be difficult to find a direct flight to Bucharest from non-European countries. The city can be also reached by a large number of low-cost flights and charters, mainly by airline companies such as Blue Air, Wizz Air, Ryanair, German wings, etc.

All scheduled flight, including those operates by low cost airlines, land at Henri Coanda International Airport (OTP = Otopeni).

Avoid exchanging money in the airport, exchange rates are 10-15% worse than what you would find in the city.

By Train:

The North Train Station (Gara de Nord) is the main railway station of Bucharest, and it is linked through direct daily trains to most neighboring countries capitals: Budapest, Chisinau, Kiev, Sofia and also with Vienna, Venice, Istanbul, Moscow, Prague. For International connections, visitors should make reservations at the authorized travel agencies of the Romanian Railway Company (Compania de Căi Ferate) which can be spotted both in Bucharest and in the major cities of the country. The list of these agencies is available on the official website of the railway company.

The timetables for domestic routes are available here: https://www.cfrcalatori.ro/

Do not use any exchange services around the train station: they offer about 30-50 percent below the actual exchange rate–use an ATM instead or walk a few blocks to get a much better rate, then take the subway system, which is reasonably priced (~1 euro for 2 uses, as of January 2013) and has clearly marked maps and schedules.

By Bus:

There are several reliable bus companies witch provide scheduled trips to Bucharest, linking it with almost all European capitals. Some of them are: Eurolines, Atlassib and Double T. Also it is a good and easy option to get to Bucharest if coming from Moldova, Turkey, Greece and Bulgaria, because there are several trips per day from these countries.

By car:

Road traffic on European highways ensures access to Romania. Traffic is on the right side of the road, overtaking on the left, the signs are those acknowledged by the international legislation. By car at the moment, after entering Romania, the VIGNETTE may be required. This can be purchased from most gas stations on Romanian territory, but it is advised to buy it from the gas stations close to Customs.

Places to visit

Bucharest combines beautiful monuments and historic buildings  with cultural places and great leisure possibilities. The city is rapidly gaining attention as a competitive city break that blends the wonders of modern Europe with the far flung exotism of the East.

For some of us, Bucharest is just the city where you can see Ceausescu’s Palace (People’s Palace- Palace of Parliament), for others it will always remain “The Little Paris” of the East. In fact, Little Paris is considered to be also an era in the history of Bucharest and traces of them can still be admired today in the architecture of palaces, public buildings and hotels.

Old City Center (Lipscani):

The Lipscani Street (documented in 1589) is one of the oldest thoroughfares of Bucharest. On the French street are the oldest medieval artifacts in Bucharest, which today makes up the whole “The Old Court -The Princely Palace.” It seems that the first walls were built in the XIV by Prince “Mircea the Elder” (Mircea cel Bătrân). Later, in 1458, Prince Vlad Tepes, strengthened and transformed the fortress into a royal residence. For two centuries, the rulers of the Wallachia used “The Royal Court” from Bucharest in parallel with the other from Târgovişte.
