A lot of people choose the capital of Romania for a city break, and a good idea might be to come when summer events take place. When doing that, finding the right Bucharest accommodation is crucial. Make sure to book early, as hotels can quickly fill up during the peak season. Usually, booking direct is the best option, at least in terms of accommodation fees.
