Private accomodation

ADVICES if you want to rent a room/apartment in Bucharest:

  2. If you do not have a place to stay before coming in Bucharest you can find a decent price on AirBnb or search the apartments/houses for rent on olx.ro.
  3. Try to get an apartment next to a metro station or any other tram/bus station (the fastest transportation in Bucharest is the metro).
