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.
