Description

Our top position makes us the ideal starting point for exploring the city. Walkabout is where luxury meets budget. Being a traveler doesn't mean you have to choose between a great experience and a good night's sleep. At Walkabout, you can have both.

Bus and taxi info
The 783 express bus runs non-stop; you have to get the ticket from the booth, NOT on the bus.
The other city buses run from 5:00 until 23:00. There's night buses too but they run every half an hour after 23.00.
If you prefer to take a taxi – taxis are 1.40 lei/km, anything else is a rip off. The price is around 40 lei from the airport. You can get reliable taxies not in front of the airport but out in the parking lot, or out closer to the main street. You will have to go outside, on the main street and get a taxi there.
If you have a cell phone you can call : Meridian taxi – 0040 21 9444 ; Taxi 2000 – 0040 21 9494 ; Confort taxi – 0040 21 9421 ( The Romania code is 0040, I quoted the numbers as if you called from a foreign country cell phone).
