Judging from the other reviews we seem to be the odd guests out, but we really didn't like La Despani very much. In fact, over the course of our month in Romania this was probably the only guesthouse we wouldn't want to come back to! We had the room off the garden and found it cold and damp. It smelled...

The propietors of the hotel were extremely kind, spoke more than 6 languages fluently and warmly between them, and were kind enough to pick us up from the train station in their own car. The propietor explained landmarks and travel advice to us in great detail and had a fantastic personality. The hotel is great value and has a variety... More

I have vizited La Despani guesthouse since i and my girlfriend wanted to go sking to Poaiana Brasov. The guesthouse is not far (if you have a car) from Poiana Brasov - almost 15 mins (if the traffic is not heavy due to the pick of season). We were pleasantly surprised since after a hard skiing day Daniel and Anu... More

The Despan family built this wonderful pension which is beautiful, comfortable, spacious, fully equipped, with a large garden hosting the sauna - all in one. Great to stay there all around the year. Enjoy!

La Despani is a lovely, cosy guesthouse in a walkable Brasov neighborhood. We loved our cheerful, immaculate room with its huge tub and we especially enjoyed our excellent, welcoming hosts, Daniel and Anu. The guesthouse provides coffee and tea for guests and a nice kitchen and common room for making food and hanging out. The bus station is a short... More

I have spend the weekend at La Despani Guesthouse. It was a really nice experience. I met a great family. Anu and Daniel are wonderful people. They have offered the sauna every each day and spoke with us about the experience from their past. I recommend the place for family, for couples and also for business trip.

My trip to Brasov was my best trip ever! It was made really special by the hosts of La Despani, Daniel and Anu and of course their wonderful sons Alex and Robin. The excellent communication between us started long before my trip. I had been in contact with both Daniel and Anu, and the time that I was able to... More

This is how hotels/guest houses should be. You don't feel like you are in somebody else's house. The warmth with which Daniel and Anu greet you is like some family member or close friend inviting you into their house. The rooms have everything including a Jacuzzi bath. If you need something you just need to look and it will be... More

La Despani sets the bar for being an excellent and very welcoming guesthouse. We stayed there for one night at the beginning of a month long Romanian bicycle tour and we plan to return at the end of our trip. The owners, Daniel and Anu are amazingly friendly, and were very helpful in giving us clear directions for finding local... More
