The location is great - right in the heart of the centre. The check in was efficient and our room was very generously sized. There was seating area and large bedroom area. All was very clean and presentable. No view as the windows were a little too high to see the square we were next to. However, for four stars,...

The hotel is located just by the clock tower. It's a very nice historical building, where the city council was located. The room was large and had a small air conditioning unit (worked well). The shower stall was cramped and my room had a slight smell from the plumbing. Breakfast was OK, nothing special. There was noise from the bars...

We stayed here with our 4 year old son. The hotel is nice and cosy, right in the old city (Little Square). The bed is comfortable and the room is decorated with good taste. Bathroom is modern and clean. There is parking available. Breakfast is good and diverse. The staff even stocked it with vegan food per request. That was...

Entrance difficult to find. No elevator. No parking. Good location in old town. Spacious rooms, mine was clean, but had no view only high windows. Basic comfort. Could be hot in Summer. Lots of bars and restaurants in the immediate surroundings. Good but late breakfast (starts at 8).

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...
