The Mansion Boutique Hotel

Romania


Non-residential ROMVENT ENGINEERING

The Mansion Boutique Hotel is located in the vibrant Old Town of Bucharest, where the antique and the new blend harmoniously and vintage decor hides the history of the Old Capital. The rooms at The Mansion Boutique Hotel each have their own style. Ranging in style from contemporary, minimalist or industrial, to classics such as gothic or vintage, each of the 19 bedrooms tells a story full of colour and imagination. Reborn from the brink of becoming part of Bucharest’ heritage, this 19th century property has a new lease of life and is now home to Bucharest’s newest 4-star boutique hotel, The Mansion Boutique Hotel. A design-driven modern boutique hotel that gives a new life to a 19th century building presenting Bucharest’s richly decorated expression of the Art Nouveau & Eclectic period. Today, entirely restored, the old hotel is "dressed" in new clothes, but maintains the noble air of the past.
