Probably the only relaxing place in Bran where you'll see less concrete than in the whole neighborhood, a beautiful green garden and nice and friendly people. The service was impeccable and the room, clean and cosy and it has a beautiful view. We had also, very tasty and rich meals. For sure a place to return!

Simply the best place to accommodate to when you are in Bran! I felt the warmth of my home in every moment spent there. The breakfast is the best that can be in the Rucăr-Bran area, for a reasonable price also. The place was cleaner than 99% of the places I saw in my entire life and the attention that...

We stayed for five days in September. The whole place was spotless, nicely decorated and really great for our toddler, given the playground outside. The fully equipped kitchen was really useful, as we were able to cater for ourselves, which was cheaper to do and easier to manage with a one-year-old. John, our host, was extremely friendly and helpful. All...

The personal was friendly; the room (double superior in the first floor) was very big and nice. We slept well until the neighbors up were starting walking (wooden floor noise). Next to the room is a balcony with nice view over the Bran castle.

Wonderful villa, exceptional and helpful owners, ideal for children, clean, a pleasure altogether. The garden is as well kept as the house and everything is practical. This is how tourism should look like in all of Romania! Thank you!

Excellent 4 stars villa above our expectation, great time to stay, very quiet, professional service, easy access to tourist attractions and shopping souvenirs. The villa has really a good place to sleep. We found the room very clean and spacious. We like more the garden with rocking chairs and landmark with Castle Bran which we see it from our room....

Room was spacious with view on the Bran castle, bathroom a bit small with slopped ceiling making it hard on your head if not careful. All spotless clean, very comfortable beds and great light down comforter. The only problem of the room for me was that the shades were sun shades not light shades/curtains so at 6am I was awake...

My family and I stayed at the guesthouse for only one night and loved it! John, the owner, was great. He was helpful and friendly and fun to talk to. The house is very cute and the location is great (you can walk to the town center where there are restaurants and you can also walk to the castle). There...
