Very good host for a large family! Accommodating all expectations and needs! Great services, amiable personnel, excellent location! Highly recommended. We'll certainly be pleased to come back, and also recommend The Council to friends and family!

The hotel is very nice with a very interesting architecture, but for us - me, my husband and our 2 year boy - was a little to difficult to leave in an apartment with a very steep staircase without any handrails. Otherwise, the breakfast was good and the staff is very friendly.

We had an excellent weekend.
The staff is very friendly, the rooms are nice and cozy.
We checked in an apartment, and even if is very big (living room downstairs and 2 rooms upstairs), and it was December, we had enough of heat.
We had hot water all the time, a lot of towels and bathrobes.
High quality food for breakfast and staff ready to serve you with everything you need.

The location was excellent, right in the city main square. The hotel is very nice showing the architecture of Sibiu pretty well. The rooms are very clean and cozy. The service was excellent with everybody from the staff taking care that you have everything you need. The only comment i would have is that in the bathroom was too hot and you couldn't do anything, it was like in a sauna. The breakfast was good and the room where you serve it is really nice. Overall, i would really recommend the hotel.

We booked at The Council for one evening while passing thru Sibiu. The location is excellent, right in one of the main squares, Piata Mica, no car circulation, big parking(although payment parking), very quiet and silent area full with restaurants and bars and perfect to start a long walk.
The hotel is situated in a villa and the only bad thing is that was hard to find. no indication or good visible signs with the name of the hotel in that plaza. The receptionist, very gentle, came to pick us up from downstairs. For the rest hotel was perfect. the superior double room we choosed was very large and comfortable, very clean and enough hot, very cosy, nice furniture Bath was a little small, only with bathtub, but plenty of towels. also bathrobes very appreciated.Breakfast very good and with quality foods and a lot of variety. Staff very attentive and helpful.

Room Tip: the villa has one floor only and all rooms are quiet

Charming 10 room hotel, that captures the architecture and vibe of the city. .
Killer breakfast with local goodies and a friendly young staff.
All touristic attractions are within walking steps and therefore this is the best place to start discovering Hermannstadt.
