Condé Nast Traveller describes Bucharest as "one of Europe's great museum cities", while Frommer's notes the Romanian capital's "graceful boulevards" and "glorious mix of Neoclassical palaces and fresco-filled churches". You can easily reach all of the Romanian capital's attractions from the centrally located 4-star K+K Hotel Elisabeta.
The Palace of the Parliament -- also known as Ceausescu's Palace, after Romania's former dictator, who was overthrown during the Romanian Revolution in 1989 -- is only a 25-minute walk from the hotel, or five minutes by taxi (approximately RON 6.30 (£1) each way). Frommer's says that "everyone who visits Bucharest gazes with amazement at the infamous Communist monolith".
Other attractions include the Grigore Antipa National Museum of Natural History and the Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum, which depicts traditional Romanian life. Both are about 10 minutes from the hotel. Just walk to the Universitate Metro station, which is less than five minutes' walk away, and catch a direct train from there.
In the streets surrounding the hotel you'll find the city's university, the main shopping area and a number of bars and restaurants. You can while away hours exploring the streets architecture of Bucharest. Lonely Planet says, "you will find some splendid 17th- and 18th-century Orthodox churches tucked away in quiet corners and graceful Art Nouveau villas".
