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’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 cost around $5, so it’s all still good and cheap.
There are quite a few options when it comes to choosing a 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.
You will be pleased to find out that the prices of the hotels are really low (at least compared to what you’d have to pay in other Western countries), and the quality of service is higher than in most hotels in Romania since they are obviously aimed at foreigners who have higher standards than Romanians.
We’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 – but still close, 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:
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 it!)
The quality of the services and rooms is solid, fortunately – and that’s what matters the most in my opinion: rooms are well equipped and clean, with nice bathrooms as well as air conditioning and cable TV.
They also offer free airport transfers as well as the option to order an early breakfast if you’re living early in the morning, while their staff is friendly and they can speak English.
It’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 nice, clean hotel and you’ll surely feel welcome there and rest well. So click here to check it out & book it right now!
Vienna House Easy Airport Bucharest
If you want to go up a bit on the style meter and get something a bit fancier, while also keeping prices decent and still being as close to the OTP Airport as possible, then Vienna House is a great choice.

Rin Airport 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.
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.
I personally consider the rooms a bit outdated with older furniture and carpets… but things might be already changed when you get to visit – and even if they won’t, everything is still in good shape, clean and comfortable, despite their age.
Just like the first recommended hotel, this one is also just meters away from the Waterpark Otopeni where guests can use lounge chairs and parasols free of charge. So you’re really getting a lot of options for your money.

More Bucharest Hotels near the airport
The recommendations above are the closest to the airport, but I still have more for you: these hotels are in the Baneasa neighborhood, some 10 minutes of driving away from the Henri Coanda airport itself, but offering more options when it comes to visiting the city, as well as more shops, bars and restaurants nearby.
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 because their quality is high and the location is great, in one of the fastest developing areas of the city.
Hotel Baneasa Parc
With an average score of 8.6 out of 10 on Booking.com (at the moment of writing), Hotel Baneasa Parc is definitely 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. The 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.

Crystal Palace Hotel
Even closer to the city, but still close to the Otopeni airport, this four star hotel is built to impress. And it does impress as it also has an average 9.2 out of 10 rating on Booking.com, based on over 800 reviews. In other words: it’s amazing!
This is also our favorite hotel and the one we choose when we have an upcoming flight. We actually stayed in a room that looks just like the one in the photo above (we had asked them to bring an extra bed instead of the large chair, which was done at no extra cost. There’s also a nice desk area just around the corner, but it’s not visible in the photo.
The rooms are large and clean and very modern, while the area itself is extremely silent and close to shops and restaurants – we walked to the nearby Promenada Shopping mall and enjoyed the nice food offered in the area. It’s really the best option if you want to be located in a nice area – but it’s a bit farther away from the airport – a 15 minutes drive away from it, which is not really a deal breaker in my opinion.
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.
They also offer airport shuttle service for an extra fee (but you end up paying less if you take a taxi, to be honest).
A beautiful hotel that’s my top recommendation if you don’t really need to be within walking distance to the airport (you have the first three if you don). Click here to find out more & book your stay at Crystal Palace now!
