The Epoque Hotel signs - Retreat in the heart of the city - because that is exactly what it brings its guests: a secluded luxury cocoon, tucked away at the very center of Romanian capital. A perfect location for a tourist exploring the city and its many attractions, but also for a business person in need of connections to all major business venues of the city. Bucharest is worth visiting at length for its historical buildings, museums, churches and the green spaces around its lakes. The historic center, although not large and currently under renovation, is a charming labyrinth of narrow streets, medieval remains, elegant shops, antique dealers and traditional stores. Romanians are hospitable, generous and blithe. At the architectural level, there coexists old and new styles, individual and collective dwellings. The atmosphere and colors of the town are different in the districts of imposing villas around the Dacia and Victory Boulevards in the area of housing blocks around the Palace of Parliament, or around the large commercial complexes. One cannot come to Bucharest and not stroll down Victoria Avenue, just as you cannot say that you have been to Paris if you have not trotted a little down Champs Elysee. Victoria Avenue is a unique fact of self understood urban personality.
