“Lovely place tucked away in the centre of the old town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

We had a lovely room with the fresco of Sfatului Square. It was nicely decorated and very cosy. Adored it. Plus it was very reasonably priced. The location was excellent. It was centrally located among restaurants and shops yet tucked away from the crowds of the main pedestrian street. The only "complaint" I have would be that it was very hard to take a shower in a bath tub that did not have shower curtains.

The owner was extremely helpful and helped us organise a day trip to visit Rasnov Fortress, Bran Castle and Peles Castle in Sinaia with his friend who was a tour guide. We had great time, it was like having a local friend show you the sights.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

The pension is hidden behind the main Republicii street, very easy to find if you walk up from the main taxi station on the street, looking after the house number, on the left side. You just walk outside and can easily grab a coffee, beer, breakfast, nearby all the restaurants and bars placed in the center of the city. The room was nicely decorated with a historical painting on the walls and a 19th century-like telephone, making you get that ancient feeling. Staff are very helpful, arranging your needs with the bags or arriving time.

Room Tip: We had the purple room on the upper floor, very quiet, as it was facing the inside courtyard.

This place was quaint, quiet, and charming. It was in old town and about 1 block from the main square but was hidden in an alley. I slept the best here cause I didn't hear dogs barking or people milling around at night.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor two doors down from the office.

It's located right off the main pedestrian street with all of the bars, restaurants and shops. It's about a 3 minute walk to the main square. It's very quiet. Make sure to have the address or a google map print out for the cab drivers as none of them knew where it was, and I forgot to bring the address. The room was huge with lots of space. There's no proper reception desk, you have to go into a travel agency and they will give you your key and help you with anything you need. They were very courteous and helped us with whatever we needed. I was told in the future they would have a proper reception desk, but who cares. Definitely recommended. It was very clean and nicely decorated. Even though the room is down an alley, we always felt safe. Should be 4 stars, not 3 as listed in my opinion!

The reviews here sum it all. Good service, unique room decoration, quiet place despite its location being in the very centre of busy Str. Republicii. The staff was very helpful. We checked-in on the Christmas eve and she greeted us warmly, and more surprisingly she even gave us a bottle of local wine. Nice touch.

Casa Albert is a really good pension with attractive bedrooms and very helpful staff in the associated travel agency. It is perhaps, by local standards, a little expensive but worth it. We would have no hesitation recommending it to others.

Nice place on the main pedestrian street of Brasov. The rooms are comfortable and very well decorated. The staff was very helpful and spoke excellent English. There is no reception neither restaurant, but the main street is plenty of places. Great value for the location.
