Hello Hotels and changes in itinerary
Bucharest has made significant progress in developing 2 star budget hotels- even within the last year. I was originally going to stay at a Ramada in a suburban area (but cheap due to employee discounts). But I found a 2 star hotel (built in 2008!) less than 1/2 a mile from Gara de Nord (train/bus/subway station). Reviews were positive on booking.com and I decided to make the plunge and stay near where I need to be- rather than 20 minutes away. There are no reviews at all on Tripadvisor (Hello hotel is that new) so I get to be the first one (I hope). And the price is with a dollar or so of what the Ramada was going to cost (and the Ramada had some pretty ugly reviews).

I will be returning to Bucharest on Thursday night (rather than Friday) and spending 3 nights at the Hello hotel before flying home. I just need to set a date to visit Jubilee (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday).
