From the Airport: Take bus 783 from the airport Otopeni and get off at Unirii 2 stop (which is also the last stop on the route). The bus 783 circulates 24 hours per day with a frequency of one bus every 40 minutes during night time (22.30 – 5.30) and one bus each 20 minutes during daytime. You have to purchase a 2 way ticket which costs 7 lei, aprox. 1.5 euros. You can find the kiosk in front of Arrivals Terminal, working hours: every day from 06:00 to 20:30.

At Unirii 2 stop get out off the bus, walk to your right straight for about 400 m on Bd. Dimitrie Cantemir until 1st big crossroad (it’s a big clock in the intersection), go left on Bulevardul Mărășești, walk for about 100 m, at the first zebra crossing go right on Cuza Voda street, then take the first street to the left, at Bucur no. 21 you’ll find a big courtyard.

Come in, we are at the green building on your left :)
