The big advantage of this hotel is its location. If you come by car, you can park on the square in front, paying 2 RON/hour. For us it was easy to find parking place so there was no issue. The hotel entrance is a bit hidden and there is no free entrance to get to the reception. Once you have...

Located in the pedestrian zone of the old town of Sibiu (Hermannstadt). Correct breakfast, large rooms (we had an appt), overheated during winter (we had to turn off all heaters, and still dad around 26 C in the rooms), nice views of the old city. Tens of restaurant and bars around. Would stay again there. A plus was the parking...

Stayed here for Christmas. Great location to the city and a few short steps to the Christmas market and short taxi ride to the train station. The room was nice, but walls are kind of thin as we could here children down the hall in their room running around and screaming. Bed pretty firm and mini fridge seemed to barely...

My room was a huge and nice room, but there are some things that's just not ok. We're talking about an XXL room, with a tiny TV located 5-6 meters from the bed. You can barely see it. The bathroom is small, and smells bad, but this sewer smell is characteristic for the whole city. The hotel is actually nice,...

This is by far the best place to stay in Sibiu. It is right in the heart of the town. We've stayed in the Deluxe Suite, which I strongly recommend going for, because it is very big and luxurious and the price difference between the other rooms and this one is worth it. Breakfast is also very tasty. For the...

Beautiful place with a very nice and intimate approach. Breakfast was very good and diverse. The place is situated in Piata Mica with easy access to the main spots of Sibiu. I recommend this place for sleeping, it is very quite, clean and it has very nice and professional staff.

This is arguably the best located hotel in Sibiu, right in the middle of things. We were there when a musical event was live in the Main Square. Rooms are sound proof enough though admitedly the hotel doesn't face the speakers. The hallway is small, there is no elevator and the rooms have their own personality. You will be staying...

The location is the best in town. Rooms are huge and very clean. Breakfast is huge and really good. Everyone are super friendly. The only thing is there is no elevator and when you come with suitecase you have to clime stairs. We recommend!
