Great rooms with beautiful view from the attic, perfect location on a narrow street near the entry to the old city. Rooms are just beautifully arranged and you have a breath taking view over the entire city. The entire hotel is arranged in an art-deco/ medieval fusion theme, with old furniture brought to life by the owners, hand painted pieces... More

We spent one night in this pension during our tour of Transylvania. Pansion is in the Old Town, a few steps from the Clock Tower and 130m from the birth house of Vlad Cepes (Count Dracula).It is difficult to find a pension even with the help of GPS devices. Had beautiful, traditional but small rooms with amazing views over the... More

We have stayed for six in one of the loft rooms in the attic. What an experience with views over the city and the clock tower. Although not serviced, we received fresh towels every second day. The linen will probably have to be changed soon. Very central to all the activities and restaurants. Can definitely recommend this pensiune for a... More

There's something a special about Sighisoara, I don’t think I've been to a place to consistently picturesque throughout. The pension Citadella is situated on one of these idyllic buildings on an idyllic cobbled street. We had a room up in the attic, it was fine by us, I needed the exercise of humphing the bags up two flights of stairs... More

The hotel overlooks the clock tower and is bang in the middle of the old city, it is quite differcult to find but well worth it when you do. The rooms are clean and warm, as single guests in double rooms breakfast was thrown in for free which was nice. The only downsides were romania's penchant for bad shower curtains... More

Lucky enough to stay here for 2 nights with my husband in mid September at this lovely 200 year old home just steps away from the Clock Tower. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Simina, the owner: she always responded promptly to my emails, she was very friendly and went out of her way, literally, to help by driving... More

The location of the B&B is just great. It is centrally located and all the main attractions of Sighisoara are within walking distance. We had a room under the roof on the top floor: only reachable by the well trained :-) Breakfast was included but was basic; probably you'd better not book including breakfast and go out to all the...

Pension Citadela is situated right near the clock tower offering great views and has easy acces to the city center. The rooms are small but comfortable and clean. The whole establishment is decorated using a vintage style. I had a very good experience with the staff and management. I will come back here for sure.

We had a bit of trouble finding this place (not their fault, we didn’t think to get good directions before we arrived) but it was worth it. The room is smallish by North American standards but more than comfortable for 3 people. The lobby area is really old-fashioned and the rooms have a rustic feel with exposed beams. The shower...

Excellent location, right near the clock tower. Parking on the place but it's pretty hard to get (narrow slope) and depends on the number of customers that it has boarding. Room very small, outdated furniture, walls thin, steep staircase,a generally feeling of old. Wifi signal very weak, unusable in the room. Breakfast is only a selection of three types of... More
