Casa Mosului Guesthouse opened in 2008. It was built in a thousand year old village, full of stories about colorful characters. The house is made out of wood and rock, decorated with authentic, old items, from the Fagaras Valley. We are not a big hotel and our guests become our friends quickly. Mosu, well, he has, as you would expect, white hair. He is kind and attentive with all the people coming to his house. We have five big and sunny rooms, with shiny floors and soft beds, ideal for lazy afternoons and silent nights. You reach them by climbing an original staircase made out of logs from the nearby woods. In the living room, near the fireplace, we have a big table, usually full of all the delicacies of the region, carefully cooked by aunt Mariana. We expect you with a blooming garden, from spring to autumn, where, in the evening you can stay for one more glass of wine or even make your own barbecue. If you are not in the mood for drinking and dining, you can just listen to the crickets, hidden in the grass. In winter time our garden hosts, free of charge, as much snowmen you can build.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Unfortunately there aren't many good things I can say about this guest home. I must acknowledge the sole positive aspect, which is their accommodation of our late check-in, despite us arriving 45-60 minutes behind schedule. However, behind this point the positive things stop. To put it plainly, the value we received did not align with the price of 350 RON per night that we paid. Once you arrive there, they have a weird policy of removing your shoes right at the entrance, with the claim, that they want to keep it clean. However, it raises the question of whether this is intended to preserve our cleanliness as guests or merely a means for the establishment to upkeep its own tidiness, and make the mandatory cleaning part easier on their side. This is not to say that the room we got was clean - it was dusty and there were spider webs on various corners of the room (this can be seen in the attached photo) - so that claim fails from the start. Disappointingly, our allocated room did not had a balcony and exhibited an unsettling odor. The room was very hot, with no AC / minifridge and the minimum of bathroom necessities (only the standard round dime hard soap) - in a 350 RON per night stay. There weren't any mosquito nets on any of the windows and because of that, on the second night we arrived at the location, the bathroom was full of bugs. Furthermore, the inadequacy of the drapes to fully close due to a ceiling support beam not only permitted unwanted light to infiltrate but also compromised the expected privacy that any guest anticipates (as depicted in the second attached photo). Curiously, despite the guest home boasting a minimum of five rooms, a mere three parking spots were designated within their yard. This forced us on the second night we arrived to park on the street - again we are talking here about a 350 RON per night stay. They do not have a catering service - all that is provided is cooked in house. While this approach holds a certain charm, it's important to consider the pricing. Regrettably, the cost associated with their offerings mirrors that of an urban pub or restaurant located at the heart of a major city. You are better off driving 45-60 minutes to Sibiu and dine there. Additionally, the owner's "office" was inside the kitchen where the meals for the guests are prepared. I know this, because I walked in (with my shoes on) during the check-out.

The Host Mr.Mircha is a perfect gentleman and made us feel very comfortable. If the intent is to pick a place that takes u back to your roots, then look no further. A lovely homestay kind of atmosphere replete with a garden and decent parking space. We loved the fact that one could sleep here peacefully without the need for any AC or Fan. You can walk around the house and garden barefoot, and the hosts make it a point to serve you some amazing dishes. We would love to come back to this amazing place and stay much longer.

Stayed for 2 nights, great comfy room, good food and very accommodating. Our stay was booked via Transylvanian Cycling which made things nice and easy. Very friendly staff could not have wanted more, even the local buffalo’s being bought home every night was an experience never to be forgotten (note fresh warm buffalo milk is delicious! ) Very nice stay !

Soon after booking two double rooms I received a message that one of the rooms "allocated" to me had twin beds instead of a double bed. I ended up with my reservation being canceled after several messages and phone calls with the property. The staff was unfriendly and unwilling to hear any complains from my side.

A very good experience at a quiet place, a lot of space, very clean rooms, you cand park in their garden, the best traditional food and an amazing russian style. It's a best place if you really like this type of house.

Stayed for 2 nights during a cycle trip in Transylvania. Lovely house with views of the mountains and garden from the room balcony. Tasty meals (with portion sizes a bit too generous!) enjoyed with the house wine. Nice relaxing garden and helpful host. Only suggestion is that a jug of water is added to meals

American here, visiting my girlfriend's home country! First off, the house looks fantastic inside and out. Outside is a large yard with really nice grass and the inside is a nice polished wood with animal pelts (if pelts bother you, this isn't the place for you). The standard rule that the house maintains is "take off your shoes and wear slippers". It looked like they provided slippers as well, but that may have been at a cost. Between this rule and the meal style of "tell us when you want to eat and it'll be ready exactly at that time" the house felt a bit strict BUT that they were trying to be a very nice place to visit (they were successful). The food was very tasty, but know that when they make food, they make a LOT of food. For a family of 4, they provided probably twice what we could eat. I felt bad not being able to eat more. This is not a criticism of the business as they made sure we were appropriately fed. Just maybe more than what we were capable of. All in all, the house was very warm and very accommodating. They lose a star for no air conditioning, really spotty wifi, and charging for water (though I believe charging for water is a pretty common thing in EU). Minor things overall.

Overall not a bad place, looks really nice with all the wood ornaments. They removed the kitchen. You have to know this if you come with a toddler, as you need to ask for help every time you want to heat something. There is not even an available microwave. Taking your shoe off in the hall seems like a cool idea at the beginning, but when you have to get stuff from your car it gets annoying. Place could be cleaner like this, but the dead flys under the windows are telling an other story. The most I was pissed about the Grumpy Old Man though. Heard he might be relative with the owner? Not sure. That guy should not be working with clients. Everything is an issue for him, commenting on anything you would like. Dinner was something like 4 stars out of 10.
