If you’re planning to visit Bucharest, setting up base in a nice & cheap hotel near the the Bucharest Airport (Henri Coanda Airport aka Otopeni airport) would be a good idea, especially if you’re not going to spend too much time in the city and/or you’re not planning to spend a lot of time exploring the city center. But even if you do, a taxi ride from your hotel to the city center should not cost more than $5, so it’s all still good and cheap.
There are quite a few options when it comes to choosing your hotel near the Bucharest airport and I did some research so you don’t have to and I am sharing with you what are, in my opinion, the best hotels near the Bucharest Airport Henri Coanda. These are generally cheap hotels (at least compared to what you’d have to pay in other Western countries), but the main things that I took into account were their quality and opinions of people who stayed there, as well as proximity to the airport.
