This house was actually a legendary hotel and restaurant in Bucharest's golden years. In 1874, businessman Capsa's four sons opened a cafe-bakery.. One of them, Grigore, had just spent some time in Paris, where he apprenticed a great coffee maker. In 1881, they opened a restaurant, and later the hotel. This place is fast becoming the meeting place of politicians, merchants, journalists, ambassadors and I think it probably will be for many years. Among them is Paul Morand, the French ambassador in Bucharest during WWII, which promotes Romanian arts. Today, the restaurant is still in operation, and if you don't eat well as before, and after 50 years of communism the place its charm not found before, the decor has not changed much. You can see the heavy lights, decorations lujuosas, waiters in suits ... The Capsa House restaurant is located on Victoriei Street, number 36, in front of the Novotel Bucharest.
A hotel that suits the price. The rooms are functional, but don't have wifi. The restaurant serves international cuisine, although there are plenty more restaurants nearby. It has a sauna, gym, and indoor pool with artificial waves.
The InterContinental Bucharest was the first five-star hotel in the city. We can see the big tower, built near the University Square, from all over the city. Most of the tourist highlights are within walking distance; for example, the National Theatre is just opposite. The rooms cost about 150 euros a night, and compared to some of the cheaper hotels around town, at least here you are guaranteed international standards of quality. The rooms are 30 square metres, the junior suites 60. They offer great services like internet access, use of conference rooms, coffee makers, a daily newspaper ... and, of course, a beautiful view over Bucharest.
