The Pensiunea Barsan is a delightful place to stay whilst visiting the railway at Viseu de Sus (where the owner is a driver). The railway runs behind the pensiunea and is a short walk from the station (ten minutes at the very most) down a partly unpaved road. The friendly welcome from the family (and their lovely black and white cat) made our three day stay a pleasure. I stayed in one of the ground floor rooms (sharing a bathroom) which was simply furnished, clean and very comfortable. Other rooms in the pensiunea had private bathrooms. WiFi was available with a strong signal. Breakfast included a selection of bread, cheese and meat. We only sampled dinner on one evening but on that occasion were treated to some delicious vegetable soup, homemade sarmale (stuffed cabbage rolls), apple strudel cake and tuica. Superb!…
The pensiune is a good place to stay for everyone that want to make a trip with the narrow gauge train Mocanita. The pensiune is a family owned buisness. You you eat in the family kitchen. The food is very good. Homemade and delicate. A free Tuica comes with the dinner. The owners are very friendly, the room is nice and clean. If you arrive with train in Videu de Jos, a transport will be arranged for picking you up at the railway station.
Ich war mit meinem Bruder und meinem Hund für 10 Tage bei der Familie Barsan. Juni 2009. Ein Traum. Der Hausherr war Lockführer auf der Cozia und wir durften abwechselnd auf der Lock Kohle schippen. Die Pension sauber, Verpflegung sehr gut. Als Hammer die täglichen Abfahrten der Holzzüge früh am Morgen direkt an der Terrasse der Pension vorbei. Ich (wir) kommen wieder.

Sono stati pessimi. Avevo prenotato una camera la mattina (che naturalmente risultava disponibile), la sera, all'arrivo intorno alle 19:00, mi hanno detto che non l'avevano più per non so quale ragione e che mi avevano inviato una mail per avvisarmi. Difficile in vacanza all'estero poter avere sempre il pensiero e la possibilità di collegarsi a internet. Grande disagio per noi viaggiando con due bimbi piccoli. Sono stati davvero scorretti.
