EXCEPTION: SIBIU - prices have been inflated for 2007 and we are waiting to see prices announced for 2008. Some hotels such as Imparatul Romanlor (which doubled priced) were overpriced and offered poor value for money. To counter this we are still able to offer a selection of holiday packages based on private pensions in and around Sibiu.

In all cases the packages and modules we offer provide exceptional value.

Sibiu: European City of Culture 2007


To celebrate its status as European City of Culture 2007, the beautiful mediaeval city of Sibiu (Hermannstadt) is hosting a wide range of cultural events and exhibitions throughout the year, in addition to music, dance, theatre and visual arts, including weekly classical concerts by the philharmonic orchestra.
These are in addition to the annual cultural events which include the Sibiu Jazz Festival, theatre festival, art and theatre festivals, many of which make full use of the beautiful old squares for openair concerts and performances. The famous ASTRA open-air village museum in the Dumbrava Forest will be a major venue for events during 2007. A new ASTRA cultural museum has opened on the Piata Mica (Small Square), while there will also be a 'Sibiu 2007' information office in the city centre.

For full details of events and programmes please refer to the official SIBIU 2007 website. Event tickets can be booked via Transylvania Uncovered in addition to flights, accommodation, car hire and a wide range of activities and other services. You will find more detailed information about Sibiu below, together with a range of special holidays.


CASA MORARU 4*, Sibiu

An excellent alternative to the larger city centre hotels is this quality, private hotel located in the leafy suburbs close to the edge of the Dumbrava Forest (20 minutes walk from the city centre).
The comfortable rooms are well appointed and feature cable TV, telephone, minibar and bathroom. There are 6 double rooms and 4 Garconieres. Facilities including a speciality restaurant, bar, swimming pool and a garden with terrace.

STOP PRESS: Several Sibiu hotels have raised prices in anticipation of increased trade arising from Sibiu 2007 and Romania's entry into the EU. Some of the rates no longer represent good value in comparison to hotels in other parts of Romania or even other countries. In particular Hotel Imparatul Romanilor has doubled prices - now over Euro 100 for a double room in a nicely refurbished, but basic 3* hotel with indifferent sercice. However, we can sorce a wide range of accommodation and are finding that some of the pensions in surrounding villages offer much better value. Cisnadie, Rasinari and Cisnadioara are just minutes from central Sibiu by car. We also have access to quality self-catering accommodation and simple town pensions at more realistic prices. NOTE: AVAILABILITY LIMITED FOR SUMMER 2007. Some Sighisoara hotels have followed the trend to raise prices especially during busy periods such as the summer mediaeval festival. Again we can still source quality accommodation at good prives through our local representatives.


HOTEL IMPARATUL ROMANILOR 3*, Sibiu
Accommodation in the once popular "Roman Emperor" is poor value at the moment. As a consequence of Romania's entry into the EC and Sibiu 2007, this hotel has chosen to raise its prices by over 100% above its 2006 rates, without any real justification. As a consequence we feel that it overpriced and no longer represents value for money.

The hotel was recently renovated though service could be better. However, the location is one of the best in the town, and the rooms are comfortable.

HOTEL CONTINENTAL BULEVARD 3*, Sibiu

Continental Hotels have taken over the historic Bulevard Hotel at the edge of the central pedestrian zone and have upgraded it to a smart heritage hotel. 135 rooms and 7 apartments. Good facilities including a business zone with offices, bank, shops, cafe-bar, restaurant serving regional cuisine, spa and gym, sauna, massage, solarium and an attractive indoor garden. Excellent location.


HOTEL RAMADA 4*, Sibiu - OPEN 2007

The 138 room Ramada will open in May 2007. This is a modern hotel with excellent facilities situated in the centre of New Sibiu. Buffet Breakfast. Air-conditioning throughout.


HOTEL PARC 3*, Sibiu

Large hotel in the Sub Arini Park part of the city. Good value if driving. Good facilities. Opened 2006.


HOTEL APOLLO HERMANNSTADT 3*, Sibiu

Another relatively new hotel. Situated in the lower town near to the station. Very nice rooms but sometimes hosts late night parties,


CASA LUXEMBURG 3*, Sibiu

Beautifully restored historic building overlooking Liars Bridge on Piata Mica. Pleasant family-run pension.


HOTEL CASA WAGNER 3*, Sighisoara

A delightful, historic hotel rather reminiscent of an old German Gasthof with a bar and restaurant providing traditional and international cuisine downstairs, and a separate wine cellar. The building, which is 400 years old, has been carefully refurbished to preserve its architecture and character. It also comprises an inner courtyard shaded by a nut tree, ideal for relaxation. All of the 17 guest rooms and 5 spacious suites are different, mainly large and spacious, and uniquely with genuine antique furniture. All rooms have en suite bathrooms, cable TV amd telephone. The hotel is conveniently situated in the heart of the romantic citadel, on the edge of the main square. Since opening in 2003 the Casa Wagner has proved extremely popular with our clients due to its traditional atmosphere, quality service and hospitality, and has established itself as one of our favourite hotels in the region.

CASA CU CERB 3*, Sighisoara

This is where the Prince of Wales stays when he is in town! Quality, private hotel occupying a beautifully restored, historic saxon house - the 'Casu cu Cerb' or 'Hirscher-Haus' on a corner of the old square in the citadel. Spacious, attractive and comfortable rooms with en suite bathrooms. Restaurant and gallery.

HOTEL SIGHISOARA 3*,
Sighisoara

The largest of the historic, citadel hotels, the Sighisoara stands between the old square and the covered stairway leading up to the church on the hill.
29 beautiful rooms and 3 apartments with rustic, modern furniture and en suite bathrooms. This hotel includes an excellent restaurant and wine cellar, fitness room , beauty salon and conference hall decorated with 16th century wall paintings.

HOTEL CASA EPOCA 3*, Sighisoara

The most recently opened 'citadel' hotel is the charming Casa Epoca which is located in the ramnling Strada Tamplarilor close to the Shoemakers Tower. It is located in beautifully restored 'Gothic' style house constructed during the 15th century. Casa Epoca offers 10 cosy double rooms and a suite, all with en suite bathrooms, cable TV, telephone, and minibar. There is an intimate restaurant, bar and a terrace in the central courtyard. Other facilities include laundry services, secure parking and travel services.

HOTEL CASA LEGENDA 3*, Sighisoara

Small, private hotel with different themed 'historic' rooms such as the 'Mediaeval Room', 'Old Room', and 'Green Room'. Access to the rooms is from outside. Small bar in cellar but no restaurant or other facilities. Located in the citadel. Poor value compared to other citadel hotels.

SPA HOTEL EXPRO 3*, Bazna

The spa resort Hotel Expro is situated in the small and pretty saxon village of Bazna (Baassen) situated ina valley between Medias and the main Tarnave Valley wine-growing region at Cetatea de Balta. Bazna, like many of the villages in this region, is dominated by its impressive fortress church. Thermal gases and iodine salts were discovered in the 18th century and following the realisation of the benefits of both the water and climate a spa was established in Bazna in 1843.

Hotel Expro comprises 28 comfortable rooms and suites with en suite bathrooms, cable TV, telephone and minibar. The main attractions are its central location (easy reach of the saxon villages, wine-growing region, Sighisoara, Targu Mures and Sibiu) and its health and sports facilities. The spa offers treatments with iodine salt water and mud, especially for rheumatism, in addition to natural therapies such as aromatherapy. There are also indoor and outdoor pools, jacuzzi, sauna, massage, a sports ground, tennis courts and a well-equiped gym. The restaurant offers a wide range of cuisine and there are two bars, one of them beside the pool. Other benefits include laundry service, parking, internet access and full conference and business facilities.

PENSIUNEA TEMPO 4*, Târgu Mures
Comfortable private hotel-pension in the old town.
HOTEL CONTINENTAL 3*, Târgu Mures
High rise international type hotel with good facilities. located in the town centre. Part of the Continental chain.

HOTEL EDELWEISS 3*, Sovata

An attractive private hotel situated in the spa resort of Sovata providing a high standard of service with young, professional and multilingual staff. 15 rooms with bath or shower, cable TV, minibar and telephone. The restaurant offers a range of international cuisine while other facilities include attractive gardens, summer terrace, safe deposit boxes, lounge, parking and a small conference room.

DANUBIUS HOTEL SOVATA 3*, Sovata

Modern international style spa hotel; with a wide range of facilities fully refurbished by the acclaimed Hungarian Danubius Group. This 6 storey hotel offers comfortable accommodation in 168 rooms, all of them with balcony, bath or shower, satellite TV, minibar and telephone. Non smoking and rooms for the disabled are available. Of special significance is the modern health spa offering relaxation and healing treatments. Other facilities include a restaurant, cocktail bar, buffet, summer terrace, indoor salt water pool, steam bath, sauna, solarium and beauty salon. The hotel stands 150 m from the Bear Lake which has a very high salt content and warm, sun-heated water.

CASA MAI 3*, Rasinari

Located in a quiet valley beside the road from Rasinari to the small resort of Paltinis in the Cindrel mountains. This comfortable "Austrian-style" pension boasts an excellent restaurant, a good selection of Romanian wines and its own trout pool. 3 double rooms and one apartment for 4 people - all are reasonably large, tastefully decorated and all of them with a private bathroom, comprising shower and wc, TV and central heating. Some of them have balconies. There is ample parking and an outdoor pool and terrace.

UPDATE 2007: This is another property which has recently raised prices to an extent that we feel it now represents poor value - prices quoted are now on a level equivalent to the Austrian Tyrol without the refinement to justify them!


CERBUL CARPATIN, Cisnadie/Sadu

A nice private pension, located on the back road from Cisnadie to Sadu, with magnificent views over flower-filled meadows and woods to the rugged Fagaras mountains - especially suitable for families. A useful alternative if you are driving and would prefer to visit Sibiu from the countryside rather han stay in town. Very hospitable proprietor - German also spoken.

2 apartments upstairs for families - each with a large double room with smaller, adjoining twin room; wooden with shuttered windows and balconies. Shared facilities: good bathroom on ground floor, extra WC upstairs. Large dining/ living room, breakfast room and kitchen including fridge. Other facilities include outdoor covered terrace, BBQ, garden and orchard, own small wine cellar and laundry room. Extra cabin outside for summer use only with 2 double beds. Full board available but menu is basic. Good value
