Stayed here for two nights during our Romania trip, definitely were not disappointed. Our room overlooked the castle and it was only a five minute walk away. The breakfast was delicious and John was extremely helpful, providing excellent tips for the continuation of our journey. I wish them every success as they prepare to open a second Guesthouse and can...

This is a great place to relax. Ioana goes the extra mile to accomadate her guests. The breakfasts are hearty and filling. The rooms are comfortable, well furnished, and extremely clean. The view of the castle at night is superb. The Guesthouse is a 2 minute walk to the Bran touristy area and the castle. This is the place to...

Definitely go there if you want a cozy, warm, wonderful place to sleep. The owner is very, very kind and the view from the terrace and from some of the rooms is worth it! For breakfast there was a large range of cheese and salami, and then eggs, marmelade, juice, coffee, tea, etc.

Rooms are comfortable, immaculately clean, modern. I very much liked the bathroom amenities as I didn't expect to have all those little bottles (like they have in hotels). The only con was that I was able to hear people walking up and down the corridor but this didn't last long and I was able to get great night sleep. The...

I have been to Bran 4 times and my first time to stay here. The house is quiet, clean and very accommodating. Iona is a wonderful host. Views of the castle and walking distance to great restaurants. They have single rooms, doubles and we stayed in a triple. They will make you breakfast for a small charge.

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...
