The range and quality of accommodation in Bucharest has improved markedly in recent years, though the tendency is firmly towards high-end hotels aimed at the business market, hence prices are often absurdly high – that said, it is possible to get excellent online rates, as well as some big discounts during the summer when the traditional business market is slack. While there generally remains a paucity of more affordable places, there is, inevitably, a clutch of cheap accommodation around the Gara de Nord, which remains a rather seedy (though perfectly safe) area. Most of the higher-end hotels offer airport pick-ups and transfers.
