Best Luxury Hotels in Bucharest 2021


The capital of Romania is a city of contrasts and continuous visible changes. Once described as the Paris of the East, the many Art Deco and Art Nouveau buildings are breathtaking. Yet these stand alongside a range of brutalist architectures, as well as visible signs of war and revolution, mixed among complex Orthodox churches. More recently, the city’s narrow lanes have played host to exceptional nightlife and an upbeat cafe culture. Bucharest is a breath of fresh air for those looking to avoid any mini-break tourist destination. And here are the best hotels to explore this inspiring place.

Le Marmorosch Bucharest, Autograph Collection

It’s one of the most recent additions to Bucharest’s luxury accommodation scene, though the building itself dates back much further, having served as a grandiose bank in the city’s old town. The Marmorosch retains many fascinating details and features. High ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows provide a feeling of grandeur, offset by a contemporary interior design that nods to turn-of-the-century style. Two bars offer top-notch mixology for nighttime consumption, while Restaurant Blank (named after the bank’s chief architect) is the sophisticated dining spot. Balance Spa’s immersive spa treatments take guests on a sensory journey. In addition, there is a swimming pool, parking and pets are allowed!
