Best Hotels Near the Bucharest Airport (2024 Update)

These are my recommended hotels close to the Bucharest airport (read the entire article for all the details):

The links to the hotels are affiliate links, meaning that I get a commission if you make a booking, at no extra cost for you. Commission rates did not influence my choices.

If you’re planning to visit Romania’s capital, setting up base in a nice & cheap hotel near the the Bucharest Airport (Henri Coanda Airport aka OTP airport) would be a good idea, especially if you don’t really need to be within walking distance to the centrally located attractions.

But even if you do, a taxi ride / Uber from your hotel to the city center should cost around $5, so it’s all still affordable. Or you can keep things even cheaper with public transportation.

Now, let’s get into finding more details about the best hotels near the Bucharest Airport Henri Coanda (OTP Airport) and why I am recommending them.

I’ll list the Bucharest airport hotels starting with the closest to the airport, but I will also include some really good options that are a bit farther away – offering you the best option to visiting the city, while also being closer to the OTP airport as well.

So without further ado, here are the best hotels near the Bucharest Airport.

1. Vienna House Easy – My Top Choice

If you want something fancy, but still decently prices, while being close to the OTP Airport, then Vienna House is your best choice.

I really like this 4-star hotel because it has soundproofed rooms with air conditioning and free WiFi internet, as well as a minibar, safe and tea and coffee making facilities in all rooms.

The said rooms are spacious, modern and clean, while the beds are extremely comfortable, so you will definitely rest well while there.

They also offer free shuttle service to and from the airport, as well as a lot of other goodies, like sauna and fitness center, a la carte restaurant, laundry & dry cleaning and much, much more.

As a plus, this is the closest hotel to the airport on my list, being within walking distance to the terminals. Another reason to appreciate the soundproofed rooms!

As you can see, it also looks really nice and also has great ratings on, being highly rated by its guests.

2. Pensiunea Casa Verde – Best Budget Option

We’re in 3-star territory now, with a very cheap option that’s close to the Bucharest Airport, but a bit farther away than the other recommendations.

However, I am recommending this one too for its nice wooden style that makes you feel that you’re in a cabin in the mountains.

The name of this pension actually translates as “Green House” – so you can already imagine what to expect from it – a lot of natural beauty.

Pensiunea Casa Verde has decently sized rooms with a ton of wooden touches, as you can see in my photos above. While the rooms are not huge, they are clean and comfortable, suitable to the hotel’s 3-star rating.

It’s made to look very rustic – so if that’s your thing, you will love it (you can even prepare a barbecue in the yard!)

The biggest problem is that it doesn’t offer a free (or paid) shuttle to the airport, but a taxi or Uber should be around $5 anyway, so probably not a huge extra expense.

3. Hotel Otopeni – Cheap Option Alternative

A basic hotel, which makes it extra cheap, the Otopeni Hotel is perfect for you especially if you like red tones (as they have a lot of them!) and are on a limited budget.

The quality of the services and rooms is at least decent, fortunately – and that’s what matters the most in my opinion.

The rooms are well equipped and clean, with nice bathrooms as well as air conditioning and cable TV. The furniture is and feels cheap, but it serves its purpose and I have no complaints about it.

I also appreciate the fact that they offer free airport transfers, as well as the option to order an early breakfast if you’re leaving early in the morning, so that you don’t go out on an empty stomach.

I also like the fact that the staff is well trained and can speak good English, while being friendly and helpful if you need them.

This hotel’s location is really good – just a stone’s throw away from the airport itself, while also a couple of minutes of walking away from the Water Park Otopeni (one of the largest and best aqua parks in Romania), so you can have some extra fun in the sun and splash in the water if the weather is good.

Hotel Otopeni doesn’t offer luxury accommodation, but it’s a nice, clean hotel and you’ll surely feel welcome there and rest well before your flight.

4. Rin Airport Hotel -Great Luxury Hotel

If you need even more facilities during your stay, then your best bet is with Rin Airport Hotel – a 4 star hotel that has a beautiful spa area with an amazing indoor pool, as well as hot tub and fitness facilities – all included in the price.

And don’t just ignore these hotels because they are 4-star ones. The prices for accommodation in Romania are really affordable, as you can see if you follow the link below.

The rooms are huge and nice, with minibar, air conditioning and free WiFi, while the hotel itself has two restaurants and two bars where you can bring up the entertainment levels during your stay in Bucharest.

This is a very good hotel overall, with good rooms and which offers a lot of amenities and services, including hourly transfers to the airport (for free).

Free access to Water Park Otopeni is also provided during the summer – so you get a nice bonus here as well!

So overall, you’re getting a real bang for your buck if you choose this hotel. Definitely check it out, as it’s a really, really good hotel that offers everything you may want from a short stay near the Bucharest Airport.

More Bucharest Hotels near the airport

The recommendations above are the closest to the airport, but I still have more for you, if you’re ready to be some 10-minutes of driving away from the Henri Coanda airport.

I personally recommend choosing one of the hotels below if you’re spending more days in the city and you don’t need to be within walking distance to the airport. this way, you’re also closer to the main attractions in Bucharest or those in the Old town area.

Crystal Palace Hotel

This is the closest hotel to the city on our list. This is also our favorite hotel – we always stay here when we need to get to the airport.

We actually book the room above and since we travel with our son, the chair you see is replaced with a bed. Awesome!

There’s also a nice desk area just around the corner, but it’s not visible in the photo. The room is big, clean and the beds comfortable.

We never had a single problem and always loved the service, the cleanliness… everything.

They are also really modern, while the location itself is extremely silent and close to shops and restaurants – we always walk to the nearby Promenada Mall and enjoy the nice cheap food there (and the delicious ice cream).

All rooms feature free wireless internet, individually controlled air-conditioning, minibar, safe and a flat-screen TV with cable channels. Guests have free access to the Health Club, including a fitness center, a sauna and a hot tub.

It’s really the best option if you want to be located in a nice area and still be close to the airport. You’re basically in the middle between Bucharest’s city center and the Otopeni Airport itself.

They also offer airport shuttle service for an extra fee (but you end up paying less if you take a taxi, to be honest – just ask the person at the reception desk to call one for you).

A beautiful hotel that’s my top recommendation if you don’t really need to be within walking distance to the airport (you still have the options above if you do).

Hotel Baneasa Parc

Hotel Baneasa Parc is a great choice for those who want a bit of both worlds: proximity to the city center and the airport as well.

Airport shuttles are offered (but for an extra price), but what really sells this hotel is their amazing garden area that’s relaxing and absolutely beautiful when the weather outside is fine.

This is a 3-star hotel, but they offer good looking rooms as you can see in the photo above. Air conditioning and high quality WiFi is included, as well as an English speaking staff that’s friendly and nice.

They have a restaurant and the nice terrace for a relaxing stay closer to the city. Those who love tennis can also play a match or more since the hotel also has a tennis court.

  1. Ha, I stayed at the Rin Otopeni last May for a night until I could get to my apartment and it was good. I accidentally left my phone in the lobby and went back a few hours later and they had it safely kept for me. For my trip this May the Rin was booked so I am staying at a different hotel and I will choose it from your list.
