Villa Barrio ticks almost all of the boxes. Our room was spacious although decor very plain. No view but plenty light from velux windows. Close to metro links, walkable to old town, nearby shops/ market. Positives; Staff. All lovely, helpful in the extreme. Organised a private taxi to castles in transylvannia for us when we left booking until last (too...

The area Barrio is in is central to most of the sights and within a short walking distant of the Old Town. Stayed here several times and used the restaurant often. I've never been disappointed doing either. The rooms are great - especially for the price, the food is excellent and the staff are efficient and helpful. I would recommend...

This boutique hotel has all it takes. Perfect location. The standard room was spacious and equipped with normal necessities. I stayed 7 nights. As a rule of thumb I never eat in the restaurant of the hotel but finally I found a hotel with a real restaurant that can compete with the top 10 in Bucharest. Aside of having dinner...

I usually stay in big hotels however after eating at the restaurant on my last trip I realized they also have accommodation so I decided to try it out. The room I had was on two levels, loft style, great living/lounge area and upstairs a comfortable queen size bed. The place is very clean, inviting, I loved the wood beams...

I was there for 2 nights, unfortunately i ordered the suite, never again!! It is more than a warehouse than a suite! No windows, dirty, everywhere you have to climb on a stairs. The staff was nice and moved me to a regular room (but didn't refund me the difference). This room was nice, but you can find a better...

For the price I paid its like staying in a five star hotel. Warm rooms; that was a change if you are used to staying in hotels and B&Bs in UK or ROI (Ireland). The room was large and came with all the necessities. The reception is not 24hours. Food in the restaurant downstairs is amazing.

I went to Bucharest with my boyfriend last Easter and we booked at Villa Barrio after viewing all the positive marks it gained on booking.com. The room was pretty big and comfortable. Even though the hotel is in front of a night club, the windows are quite effective when closed and we hadn't any problem at night. The staff is...
