The location can’t be beat! We were also upgraded so our room was absolutely huge. Lots of character and friendly service. The location right o. The Piata Mica was great for accessing restaurants and sightseeing.

I'm not too fussy about hotels in Eastern Europe, so long as they are clean, warm and dry. There was a decent breakfast. But for a Four-Star hotel, The Council has serious faults: Dodgy electrics, exposed cables, with an airconditioner powered by a plugboard hanging in mid-air; Bad smell from sink (no plug); Tricky, uneven painted stairs to bedroom, with no handrail; Beds not made daily; Trip and head-bashing hazards throughout (including an unfenced 6 foot drop through a gap in the landing !); no hot water on arrival or following a.m. until a complaint was made; Main light in bedroom not working; No tea/coffee facilities in room. The price reflects the hotel's central position in the main tourist square, but 4-star ? Definitely not !

Really a great experience. Sibiu is a wonderful place, culturally and aethetically rich, and The Council is at the heart of it all ready to take care of you for work or vacation. The rooms are comfortable, breakfast is quite nice, and the staff are ready to make sure you have a great experience. Highly recommended.

Our room was great ....bigger than we expected with a great view over Piata Mica . We were generally happy with our 2 night stay but the cleaner did not do much at all when servicing our room . The bathroom was not cleaned at all and she could not give us a bath towel each so we had to make do with a hand towel. The breakfast was varied and tasty particularly if you like meat . More fruit would have been welcome .

Location, great - the old town hall. Staff, very friendly and helpful. Comfortable and tasteful, definitely a place to recommend. Most probably full during the weekend, personally had no problem with the noise during the artistic venues... Visit Sibiu but also the surroundings, you will be amazed.
