The hotel is right at the heart of Sibiu with lots of attractions and restaurants in easy walking distance. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of my room with sitting area and shower / toilet downstairs and large bed in attic space above. The stairs up may not be to everyone's liking though. Good self service breakfast by Romanian standards -simple but filling. Not sure hotel would be four star in many western countries as it lacked a lift and extra facilities but I was more than happy staying there.

The location is very good, in the center of Sibiu. The hotel is listed as a 4star hotel but the facilities are not there at all. Except for the soap and sleepers tou don’t have anything else. I stayed in a suite, very small, the bathroom could really use a renovation, the shower had a lot of mould at the bottom, the space is very small for a bath. The bed was upstairs, very abrupt stairs, no curtains on the window, be careful if you have children with you, this kind of room it’s not appropriate. The breakfast is simple, not a lot of diversity but ok overall and the personal service is good.

The hotel, perfectly restructured, is faced on one of the central places in Sibiu. Four star hotel, rooms are on 2 levels, nice atmosphere, cosy and warm. But: breakfast was really poor, some cheese, ham, no fresh bread, only fridge bread that had to be warmed in the toaster. That didn't work, as it was broken. No honey, no choice of jams, only one kind of hotel jam. The coffee machine didn't work properly as well, no milk available. And the service ladies, chattering in another room, that didn't even come to check if everything was fine. And this is a 4 star hotel??

The Council is located conveniently in the Small Square in Sibiu, right in the heart of the Old Town. It is ideally placed if you intend to explore the city by foot. Another big asset is the public parking very close to the hotel, which is relatively cheap (10 lei per day, you can pay by SMS). The room itself was clean, but quite small, with not enough light and not very well maintained. On the plus side it had a working refrigerator. The wireless Internet connection was very slow and unreliable. Breakfast was also poor and not worth the price. Overall value for money: average at best.

it's true, it has a very good location, but forget the idea to go by car close to the hotel - there are just a few parking places into the Small Square, you could enter only if somebody else go out, so you could wait a lot behind the barrier; the advice is to park outside the barriers, and to walk with the luggage for some minutes, even to climb under the Liars Bridge the rooms are one by one customized, we visited the hotel two times and we received two very different rooms; but this is interesting, i suppose you have to go up to the first floor, no elevator of course breakfast.....4 stars hotel? it's a subject to laugh; maybe it was just a pandemic period, so this is the reason for such a poor breakfast but, once again, the location is so nice...

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.
