Bucharest, the capital city of Romania, is known as the country’s “Little Paris”. It is home to both ancient colonial buildings and sophisticated structures, combining a wonderful mix of the old and the new. Some of its most renowned tourist attractions include the 12-storey Parliament Palace, which was built in 1984, and the Old Town, where 19th-century buildings remain. Another reason to visit the city is its pedestrian-friendly streets!

Vacation rentals in Bucharest range from budget rooms to luxury hotels. If you want a more localized experience, you can go for an Airbnb instead and ask your host for the city’s best-kept secrets. To help you plan your trip, here’s a list of some of the best Airbnb vacation rentals in the city. Plus, all are below 40 USD!
