Set close to the French Embassy, newly-opened Hotel Amzei gives the impression of an aristocrat’s city villa with a taste for the modern industrial
look of glass and steel.
Twisted-iron sculptures under glass floors opposite Louis XIV-style armchairs
greet guests in this bizarre and interesting boutique hotel in the central
Bucharest market of Piata Amzei, between main streets Blvd Magheru and
Calea Victoriei.
A reimagined 1912 residence with marble fl oors, spiral staircase, a modern
breakfast room and elegant bedrooms, this six-fl oor hotel has 22 rooms at prices between 125 and 200 Euro for bed and breakfast, a small conference centre that can hold up to 50 people and a summer terrace where the manager hopes to hold small concerts and soirees.
Building on the gap in the market for small and interesting guest residences
in the city, where competitors include
Hotel Rembrandt in the centre-south and Residence in the centre-north, this
Romanian-owned hotel hopes to catch a piece of the market surrounding Piata
Romana, where it offers a bijou postmodern alternative to the traditional big
box brands.
