In the center of historic area in Bucharest are the remains of the Old Princely Court, ruled in the 15th century by Vlad Tepes (the Impaler) who became famous worldwide under the name of Dracula.

The Old Princely Court, built as a palace or residence during the rule of Vlad III Dracula in 1459. Archaeological excavations started in 1953, and now the site is operated by the Muzeul Municipiului Bucuresti in the historic center of Bucharest, Romania.

„The Princely Court and its surroundings represent the original hearth of the city. The oldest princely residence in Bucharest was most probably founded in the late 14th century, but the first recorded document about a fortress (or a princely palace) in this place is dated September 20, 1459, issued by Prince Vlad III Dracula -the terrible prince commonly referred to as Tepes, “The Impaler”, whose bust today watches over the vestiges of his palace.”

Much of what remains today was uncovered during archaeological digs that took place from 1967-72, when the palace ruins were first opened as a museum. There are fragments of the original 15th century walls, as well as remnants of the princely palace throne room, in which most of the relics found on the site are exhibited.

" Bucharest’s Old Town is a mix of history, local culture and life style, a trendy entertainment district and favorite hangout for the locals."

Property OK, but our experience was way below expectations

  • 3 of 5

The property is close to what's described in the ad (of course, pics look a bit better but we were not disappointed at all). The only difference is that it's really two bathrooms not three, except that, as is the case in Asian and European cultures, the toilet is separated from shower. That's really two half-baths and there's one full-bath. For our needs this was sufficient.

It is also right in the Old Town, with a lot of historic monuments and the famous Parliament Palace at a walking distance.

The major issue we had was the noise level from the family that lives upstairs. They have kids, and while I can empathize with them, the noise level was really high. There furniture dragging noises, stuff and toys being thrown on floor, and all of it would come through the ceiling loud enough. The noise would go away after around 10.30 or 11. They would also return early in the morning when they woke up. So if you can align with their sleeping schedule or during the day, then you're fine :-) If you have kids like me, then you could have problems.

The second issue was that apparently this apartment had some water problems, and they decided to put us in a temporary apartment for the first two days. I can understand that things can sometimes go wrong, but the way they handled really made me doubt their intentions.

For example, they did not inform me of the issue until I had dragged my luggage to this new apartment and we figured this is not what we had booked. That's when the person helping us informed us what happened with the other apartment. But then he also tried to sell us why staying in the other apartment was a better idea and that we should consider just staying there. At this time, I had doubts that may be they gave our apartment to someone else (since we had arrived a day late) and that's why they wanted us to stay here (although I had no evidence of that).

I will say though that the person (Nick) helped us quite a bit when moving around from apartments and in general figuring out things like how/where to park, and how to deal with locals in the parking lots.

I would have given this two stars, but I added a single star primarily because of the help Nick provided.

"The Old Town part of Bucharest, also called Lipscani after the main street that crosses the area, is so much filled with bars, pubs and restaurants, that sometimes it’s nearly impossible to choose."
