They are in a very good location, about 7-10 minute walk from the beginning of historic area. There's also a gigantic park 10 minute walk the opposite direction that you'd take to the historic area, which is beautiful, then after the park there's a field where the locals hang out and then a zoo by a beautiful lake, after which a small forest and then Sibiu's village museum (bigger than Bucharest's and a lot less tourists). The room was clean, big, nicely furnished. The hotel staff and manager really cared about our comfort. The breakfast each morning was very good and plentiful. The lady who served us at breakfast was very good, always got our order right, and was very pleasant, however she can smile a bit more (I know a cultural thing to not smile much). They arranged a bus for us to the next town and even drove us to the bus station for free. Their employee helped us with our bags and was very pleasant. From start to finish they were great.
Our room was right over the patio of the restaurant where the employees and guests come out to smoke. Whenever we opened the windows, the smoke filled our room and it was disturbing to us non-smokers. One night, there was a group of French tourists who thought it would be a great idea to have late dinner at a big dining room table which happened to be on our floor, right by our room. (We still don't know why they have a big table there :) They were kind of loud and even turned the TV on which was there by the table and our room as well. For some reason, the soundproofing isn't very good in the room through the door, we heard everything almost as if it was inside our room. We called the front desk, she asked them to be quiet immediately and they left right away. They have no elevator in the hotel, but they will help you with your bags. I would recommend to ask them for a room on the top floor so that you don't hear everyone coming down the stairs in the morning,
They are a good value in Sibiu, would recommend them overall.
