Explore Bucharest from the glorious Capitol Hotel, one of the city’s most sophisticated and prestigious landmarks. With more than 100 years long history and situated within the heart of the city, near the most impressive tourist attractions, this Bucharest hotel provides spectacular views of The Palace of the National Military Circle inaugurated in 1923 and Calea Victoriei (Victory Avenue), one of the oldest and most important avenues of Bucharest dating back to the late 1600s.

The history of this building dates back to the late 1600 when this side of the Mogosoaia Bridge (Calea Victoriei) belonged to the Cocorascu family. Some documents of the times show that the Cocorascu wealthy family contributed to the foundation of the Sarindar Monastery. The Cocorascu family later sold the surrounding lands of the monastery to Ch. I. Zerlendi, a successful cereal trader, who, around 1890 built his building in the Sarindar Suare (see photo 1).
