I just finished a 1-might stay at Hotel Emire as part of some sightseeing in Transylvania. This was my first time in the area and was not sure what to expect. The hotel is a bit off the neaten path, but there were enough signs for us to find it. The hotel's decoration is a bit ecletic, but comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly, helpful, and efficient.I was given a room with a view to the east and was treated to a spectacular mountain view from my balcony. We had dinner in the hotel dining room and it was quite good, as was breakfast the following morning. So all of that was fine. The only reason I give them only 4 stars is because the layout of my room was quite odd. Most of the members of my group stayed on the 1st floor and had "typical" rooms. My room was on the second floor, and had a set of stairs leading up to a loft that contained the bed. The opening between to top of the stairs and the loft that held the bed was only about 4 feet tall, requiring me to duck through it, and the ceiling was less than 6ft tall in about half of the loft area. When I got up in the middle of the night, I managed to bump my head on the ceiling.
BOTTOM LINE - If you are looking for a hotel near Bran Castle, you should definitely consider staying at Hotel Emire. It lives up to it's 4-start rating. But unless your are feeling adventurous, you should probably ask for a room on the 1st floor.
