“Perfect mix of historical atmosphere with modern conveniences”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

I wish all hotels were like this; an amazing old building, beautifully preserved and sensitively modernized. A real taste of Transylvania, so much better than an anonymous chain hotel where once you're in your room you could be anywhere. Our room was huge, big comfortable beds, gorgeous simple furniture and a lovely view. The staff were kind and friendly, welcoming us even though we checked in at 7.30am after travelling into Sighisoara on a night train. Breakfasts are delicious, with homemade cakes and jams and local ham and cheeses.

Spent a night here on our tour of Transylvania. Fronius is great value for money. Staff exceptionally friendly and spoke great English. Rooms generous, clean and modern. View from our window (15) to the Clock Tower was lovely. Amble down the cobbled street to tons of restaurants. Also close by to the Clock Tower to start the anti clockwise self guided walking tour of the old city. Only downside was smoking in the bar, but that's Romania.

Room Tip: All 3 couples had great views. One had 3 beds in it which is good for friends or families. Careful...

Very friendly staff speaking good english with well equipped room and good breakfast. Pick up arranged to/from station went smoothly. Great location on middle of old town close to covered stairs. Renovation on 17Century building done very well with interesting old artefacts to view.

Lovely room, delicious breakfast, and friendly folks. Built in the 1600s, this is updated without loosing the feel of the era. Clean and serviceable baths, furniture that fits the feel of the town and time. Locally made cheeses, along with cooked to order breakfast foods make a super start to the day.

A Romanian friend had recommended this place to us and I'd have to say we were completely bewitched by this place and even more surprised when we found out that this hotel was remodeled from the original which was built in the 1600s...
Where to begin...
Upon entering the hotel through the small alley we found ourselves back in time.
The decoration of this place..lobby area is amazing, just like a small museum. The room was a very nice surprise- we stayed at the Herminia room..very clean with the details and touches of antiques and a great view of the Clock tower at the same time overlooking some of the lower roofs of the town.

Staff, just amazing. They were super nice and helped us extra with the rented car we took.
Location is conveniently at the entrance of the stairs that lead to the Church on the Hill.
Breakfast was great, as well, cheese and bread was homemade and the forest fruits jam was so good.

Overall we loved our stay in this nice hotel. :))

Room Tip: We stayed at the Herminia room, it was lovely!!

Beautiful spacious rooms, delicious home made jams and local cheeses for breakfast, off street parking. I forgot my passport here and travelled on to Bucarest, when I called them they arranged to have it delivered to my hotel in Bucarest the next day, without charge. They saved me an incredible amount of grief. I am truly indebted to them. Thank you all at Fronius.
