The inn-type house on 18, Haralambie Botescu Square, next to Matache Hall

House dating from the early era of the Neo-Romanian architectural style (possible arch. Ion N. Socolescu?!), showing off picturesque Oriental features, soon to be demolished in Piata Matache (Matache Market area).

Inn type house with passages (Durchgang), a typology typical to the commercial character of the area. Late 19th century, eclectic architectural style, combining a classical concept of the composition of the fa├žade with an Early Neo-Romanian style decoration featuring Ottoman-Oriental influences.

The edifice is part of the Protected Built Zone 02- Calea Grivitei (Zona Construita Protejata 02- Calea Grivitei)
