Our B&B is run by a Canadian family so there's always someone around who speaks English and can tell you about this amazing city. We know what it means to be new in town, so let us be your guide!
The rooms in this 1920s villa range from multi-bed dorms to private family suites and en suite double rooms. We've recently renovated with damask sheets, new duvets and new shower stalls. We're child- and pet-friendly!
All of our guests get a lovely start to their day with a breakfast of hot pancakes and tea/coffee; there's a cold buffet on Saturdays to give our chef the day off! We also have filtered water, clean linen and towels, free bicycle rental and storage, Internet access, DVDs, book swap, board games, a garden and an old piano.
Come meet our family in the centre of Bucharest!
