Pension am Schneiderturm
Ranked #1 of 49 Sighisoara B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Location is fantastic, I never dreamed that I'd get to sleep inside a citadel.

Sorin, our host welcomed us warmly, and suggested some great fortified churches that made our trip extra enchanting.

The breakfast in the cellar was a wide variety of locally made meats (including bear!), cheeses, bread, honey, jams, yogurts and juices. Elderberry juice is delicious!

As the pension is located inside the citadel, parking is located at the bottom of a cobblestone hill (near where tourist buses park).

Room Tip: The annex is large and includes a sitting area.

I stayed here for a few nights in October 2013 and I really couldn't have wished for more. Nestled in the heart of Sighisoara, it was perfectly located to see everything (although Sighisoara is quite small!) The real charm was the owner, Sorin, though. Right from the word go he let me know the best places to eat, what I should go and see, and was always close by if I needed any help. I was also invited to try some of his home made schnapps (which was delicious!), and had some good chats, which is especially great when you're a solo traveller. It really made the stay, and I would highly recommend it to anyone wishing for a nice retreat into the heart of Romania! Oh, and the breakfast - INCREDIBLE.

We stayed at Pension am Schneiderturm in Sighisoara in January 2014, and were totally impressed in every possible way. The hospitality is unparalleled, the facilities are of superb quality, and the breakfast is perfection. Sorin is one of the most helpful hosts we have ever encountered, and he will gladly assist in recommending restaurants, excursions, shopping, and even Romanian beer and wine. This was our first visit to eastern Europe, and we truly fell in love with the misty, romantic citadel and surrounding mountains and villages. We were very well cared for and will recommend Sighisoara as well as Pension am Schneiderturm to our friends and family. It lives up to these excellent reviews. Thank you Sorin!

This B&B is the model of what a B& B should be : perfect location , warm atmosphere , great hospitality , home made food , originality , comfort and you feel like family ! This is what you get when you set foot in Pension am Schneidertum and you meet the owner Sorin !
We stayed in the annex , that is the room beside the street ! It is not as original as the rooms built within the walls but it has a great quality : it is BIG !!! In fact one of the biggest rooms we have had in a B&B ! And it was quiet !
Like many guests in the past , we have used the services of Sorin to book us a driver-guide to tour various landmarks of the region and also to select some restaurants to have dinner . On both counts , we were happy with the results !
Make sure not to miss the breakfast and try to go early if you want to try the complete selection of home made bread, juices , cheese and jams ! They disappear very rapidly !

Located just beside the fortification known as the "Tailor's Tower" just a very few walk minutes from the main square, this is a great B&B experience. My single room was quite small, but everything else was wonderful: the fantastic breakfast; the courtyard where you could relax; and the very helpful proprietor who arranged for a driver to take me to the fortified churches nearby for a fair price. Breakfast consisted of many types of smoked meats, cheeses, boiled eggs, jams, natural drinks like eldeflower and various juices in a great basement dining space.
Highly recommended.

We stayed at this lovely pension, only for one night. The location is perfect. The owner welcome us with tsipouro (a traditional drink from Greece-because he is half-Greek) and he gave to us from the very first moment information about everything. The room was small but functioned like home to us. The next morning, began the event of the breakfast: everything from every corner of Romania: sausages, cheeses, jams plus juices and every type of coffee. I would like to go again just for the breakfast. Thank him for his hospitality.

The pension is great. It's part of an old tower that was restaured in 1797 with small but cosy rooms that gives a great feeling that you belong there. It has a wonderful dinning place in the basement with traditional food ( swedish bufet), fruits, non alcoholic drinks( apple juice, tea, coffee etc). The host, Sorin, was very nice. He welcomed us very warmly and guide us through the city akk of our journey. He even borought us a pair of bicycles to ride near the city and afterwards he gave us some refreshment because we were looking very thristy hahaha. At the end he gave us two suveniers (mugs) and called us a cab. I recommend anyone who wants to visit Sighisoara to stay at this pension regarding your age, buget or intensions.
