The decorations were tacky and covering all the furniture and everywhere. Annoying. That and the tourists making blood sucking sounds.
Had interesting anecdotes of the past in English. Great view of the valley below.

I've been waiting so long for this moment to finally now that I was in Dracula's castle. I'm a fan of the book long time ago and have watched all movies of Dracula...More
We visit the castle couple of days ago. The organisation of how many people can get in, it is terrible. We were stuck in a small room with at least 60 people waiting to walk up some secret stairs. The Halloween decorations was really bad....More
Nice place to be. Great views and photo shoot spots. They try very hard to make you feel it is a creepy place but in that point of view it just a failure. To put some skeletons, skulls and spider webs doesn't make it creepy....More
Awesome and fun attraction if you are travelling to Transylvania. Went with a group of friends to Romania, Hungary and Prague. Romania was the unexpected favorite!
Highly recommend the 4 day Dracula tour. Awesome tour guide Rezvan. took us to places we could never have...More
nice, interesting place to learn about the history, but our choice to go there on 3rd of Nov was really wrong - Halloween celebrated in Bran Castle ! I did not understood the connection between Romanian history and halloween. except if you want to have...More

Huge crowds pushing you around in a place that has nothing about Count Dracul, who is the epicentre of the visit. It has plenty instead about Queen Mary and other sympathetic fellows; it has also some artificial spider nets to put you in mood. There...More

No, you can't stay at Bran Castle as it is a private residence and still owned by the royal family! There are several hotels in the village of Bran probably with views of the castle though. Yes - there is a secret passage in the castle and you can use it to access the next floor. There are probably others as well but you are not shown those.
Have an enjoyable visit.

There are ways to get their with transfers in Brasov. I would consider looking into organized tours. I found mine very enjoyable and very informative. By doing a tour, we were able to do Bran, Peles and Rasov in one day and have a sit down lunch too. This was much easier that trying to make connectsion. We started in Brasov so that saved the ride up from Bucharest.
