We were guests for one night only but we liked it very much. The top attraction from a tourists POV is that we slept on the actual wall of the medieval fortress (on a bed ofc). We slept where people long ago fought and defended this stronghold :) big plus for authentic experience. The breakfast was good and the landowner...

We booked this B&B through booking.com, where the rating is a whooping 9.6 and the photos show much larger rooms. Upon arrival I was impressed by the general cleanliness of the place and the friendliness of the man at reception. However, our room was so tiny one couldn't swing a cat :( The bay window made the room be even...

WOW! What a wonderful place! Look no further – this is the place to stay in Sighisoara! Built into the old city walls, just inside one of the two entrance gates into the citadel, this building oozes atmosphere and charm. Our room, the Junior Suite, was situated on the ground floor at the front of the building. Although at street...

This was a really attractive place to spend a couple of nights. The owner has done a great job in restoring a former building to create a lovely guest house which is actually built into the medieval city wall. The service was great and the owner is very helpful and friendly, and speaks excellent English. Owing to the old structure...

Sympathetic renovation of an historic property to offer everything you want, without losing any charm. Full of history and character, this pension is built on the old city wall – a restored part of the old wall even features in the bathroom! All the fittings were rustic cast iron and looked like the local blacksmith had wrought them - look...

We spent 2 days at the Pension Schneiderturm within the citadel walls of Sighisoara, Romania. Everything about the pension from location, hospitality, the generous breakfast and overall charm rates 10/10. Romania's history and emergence from Communism into the EU should make every Romanian proud and everyone else an eager learner and visitor to this UNESCO world heritage site.

This was without a doubt the most wonderful stay we had while in Romania. Sarin, the innkeeper couldn't have been more helpful or hospitable. The Pension am Schneiderturm is extremely comfortable and most charming. The breakfasts were outstanding, if you went away for the day hungry, it would be your own fault. Our trip was almost 2 years ago and...

One of the best value for money choices inside the old fortress, this B&B offers tiny but very nice decorated rooms, with solid and comfortable beds. However if a unique feature should be emphasized, this could be the excellent breakfast with many local fresh specialties, for all the tastes.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pension am Schneiderturm guesthouse is located in Transylvania, in the medieval town of Sighişoara, near the citadel's main access gate. This medieval house dates back to 1797 and, through construction and architectural style, it forms an integral part both of the Tailors' Tower and of the citadel's Wall. Traditionally restored, the guesthouse has four double bed rooms, one single bed room and an apartment, all of which are furnished with authentic pieces of furniture in massive wood and have their own private bathrooms, fully equipped. In case the tourists staying at the guesthouse would like to pay a two-wheeled visit to the tourist attractions near the medieval town, they will be able to do so, as the guesthouse offers them the possibility to use, free of charge, its high quality, modern and well-kept bikes. Breakfast is on the house and it consists of local food products, purchased from the farmers living in the villages close to Sighişoara. ... more   less
