Accommodation in Bucharest: History of One of the Most Renowned Hotels in Bucharest

Hotel Cismigiu has seen a lot of changes throughout the last century. The first modern buildings on Elisabeta Boulevard, the period with Pache Protopopescu as mayor – are just a few of these stories. The initial hotel that is today known as Hotel Cismigiu – Palace Hotel – was built by the engineer Nicolae Pissiota and was inaugurated in 1913. The facilities and services provided were meeting even the highest expectations: bathroom in the suites, reading and correspondence rooms, bar and English and French billiards room, restaurant with upper gallery (where Gambrinus Brewery was subsequently opened), French and Romanian cuisine, telephone in each room, classical music concerts during meal times, omnibus-car for all trains, etc. A sumptuous chandelier was lighting the lobby, a grandiose staircase was ensuring the access to mezzanine along with the two elevators, and the room was decorated with gold leaves.

The hotel’s history is filled with drama, mystery, and poetry, famous guests and World War stories, which you can easily read about before booking your accommodation in Bucharest here. Trust us, you’ll love it, so we won’t spoiler alert you.
