Who said Old Town refits have to be kitsch? This one certainly isn't. The Europa Royale is a gorgeous place that complements instead of overpowering its surroundings. Literally a stone's throw from where Bucharest began, at the Curtea Veche, facing Piata Unirii, it is as ideally located as you ever hope for. Inside the rooms are big, classy and we found the staff exemplary. A genuinely welcome addition to Bucharest and the Old Town, and not as pricey as you might think.
