Bucharest, Romania - Checking into Intercontineal Hotel - Part 02

Continuation from Bucharest, Romania - The flight - Part 01

After another 4 and a half hour flight from Doha, I arrived at Bucharest International Airport. The Qatar Airways plan was a small Airbus. A small but modern airport. Weather was a nice 8 degree Celsius.

The airport is reminiscence of the old Subang Airport. Two stories high and a bout 100 meters wide. The car park is right in front of the terminal.

Stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel in the centre of Bucharest. Got a car that was from the hotel and after a short 30 minute drive, arrived at the hotel at around 1 p.m.

The room is very European in concept; warm and loads of fabric.

Internet is not free!

Should be comfortable as a base for the next few nights.

The room number was #825. The view out of the window is the city of Bucharest. Very low buildings. I was made to understand this city sits on a geographical fault-line and suffers from earthquakes once in a while.

Very quaint city that I can't wait to explore.

Loads of marbles in the bathroom. Marble is one of the natural stones found in Romania.

Not a lot of hotels have bidet anymore.

To be continued.
