Spending few days in Saschiz at Pension Cartref was the best choice, considering its location so close to the fortified churches in Transilvania. We appreciated the kindness of the host in provinding info about the nearby places and also the attention to details (the bookshelves for tourists, the nice description of the house found in the room, the decorations). All...

There is a large indoor area with plenty of parking space, a small museum and an outdoor mess hall. The food is delicious and the servings are large. We were not aware of the old...

We specifically needed a room with a double bed, and a room with two single beds. We also weren't sure of our exact arrival time until the day of, and didn't make up our mind about whether we...

Nice experience. We tasted a little bit how the Saxons lived in the past in these places. Good accommodation, nice personnel, good food and atmosphere. The room was simple but nice decorated and clean. It was easy to reach many touristic objectives around this place. We recommend Pension Cartref.

Thirteen of us stayed at the Pension for 10 nights and had an enjoyable holiday. Anka the owner couldn't have been more helpful and organised a couple of day trips for our group. It is next to the main road so is a bit noisy although you did get used to it after a couple of nights and there are...

Behind its unremarkable exterior there lies a gem. Not only is the pension immaculate and beautifully decorated but what really sets it apart is the passion of the owner to deliver a perfect experience for her guests. The only negative is the closeness to the road but she has dealt with this by triple glazing and air conditioning. My room...
