Stayed here for 8 nights and am sure that on booking was told that I would be given a room on the first floor but ended up being on the third floor with no lift because "it's a pension". Room was very spacious with 2 TV's but it sort of became like a sauna during sunset and only a fan was available to cool off. Breakfast was fine though.

The brand new Pensiune Ambient (Str. Iuliu Maniu nr. 62 B Tel. 4-0268-410622 ---) is smaller and lower key than its glitzier parent the nearby Hotel Ambient. Both are very nice but different in style. While the Pensiune Ambient is more for tourists or lower maintenance business types, Hotel Ambient’s primary target is the business traveler. The well-constructed Pensiunea just opened eight months ago. Good non-touristy location northeast of the Strada Republicii/Parc Central. About a 10-15 minute walk to old town and close to the business center. Some parking spots in the front. The staff is friendly and attentive. The manager Ciprian quickly answered my emails from the USA before my trip. I called when I arrived in Romania and the desk clerk was very helpful in trying to find a suitable room for my needs since the hotel was filling up quickly. As a solo female traveler I felt very safe and comfortable.

I splurged (70 Euros-US$90) and stayed in the quiet Apartment Suite #15 on the third floor. There are no elevators, so be prepared to climb stairs. Large one bedroom with king size bed, TV with cable (CNN, BBC), skylight windows and windows looking out on the copper tiled rooftops and the mountains in the distance. In the center of the apartment is a separate medium sized living room with a large sofa trundle bed that pulls out to a double bed. The living room has a TV, a refrigerator and a large skylight. The living room has a door to the bedroom and the door to the bathroom and the entry door. The bathroom is very nice and big. Beautifully tiled. All brand new. Large mirror. A shower stall with good water pressure. A radiator doubles as a towel rack. Also, a large skylight window. This apartment could comfortably accommodate up to 3-4 adults. (Other rooms: Singles 45Euros/Doubles 55Euros).

The price includes a basic continental breakfast of cornflakes, cocoa puffs, salami, ham, cheese, tomatoes, bread and coffee. Breakfast is served in the little bar/café off the lobby, which has windows looking out to the bustling street. Unfortunately, like everywhere in Romania, the café/bar allows smoking. Fortunately, the café windows were open since it was not cold outside.

The front desk clerks helped with my heavy bags and joked I brought the entire United States with me. The young, helpful desk clerks spoke very good English. Ditto for the clerk at the parent Hotel Ambient. All were very interested in talking to Americans who are still a novelty in Romania. All the other guests looked like Romanian business travelers. It was May and I only encountered Americans on my last day in Cluj. I wish I could have stayed and just relaxed a few more days in my nice room.

The Pensiune guests can use the parent Hotel Ambient’s free Internet /computer and other “services. The Hotel Ambient is about a 5-10 minute walk and has a good restaurant. The Hotel City Center is located between the two Ambients and looked nice.

Other tips: Across the street is a Banca Carpatica with a foreign exchange window with 0% commission. The CFR – Romanian national train system has a ticket office one block behind the Pensiune. CFR ticket office - Corner of Blvd. November 15th and Izvorul Rece Street. It was pouring rain so the CFR office came in very handy. I needed to buy a ticket and I saved an extra trip to the train station. The ticket clerks spoke English.

Restaurant: Ceresa Rau Romania just down the block from the Pensiune. A terrace restaurant with a non-smoking section! Good traditional Romanian food. Inexpensive- $11 for a full meal and tip. There is an OMV gas station at the next traffic light around the corner. The taxi to the train station should cost no more than 5 Lei. I was ripped off by a cab driver who charged 20 Lei or $7.50. The Brasov train station is under construction and the ramp way is like walking on rubble. Tough on my rolling suitcase. The Intercity train is very nice. Near the Black Church in the old town is a fabulous pastry shop named Vatra Ardealului. Brasov is pretty, go before it’s too discovered.

What is good:
1) It's not a terrible property.
2) Prices are good.
3) It feels relatively safe and though it looks run down and needs some TLC, it's okay.

What they could improve:
1) Provide fans in every room. We got one after asking, but it was HOT and muggy in our room and too loud by street to leave stuff open
2) Cheer up that crabby man who serves breakfast and is so rude
3) Laundry- when a customer has laundry you don't give them a trash bag and no slip and tell them to drop it off. I ended up hand writing a list and the laundry was done well BUT it was extra work for me and tacky.
4) Get Do Not Disturb signs, people want them. Don't say you have them when you don't.
5) When the US Army is there occupying the entire breakfast lounge, make other space available or tell other customers we can take our food to our room. We were unsure of rules and crabby breakfast man was no help
6) More than one tiny trash can in bathroom

TIPS:
1) there is no elevator- so prepare to march up hot stairs
2) This hotel does not have a bar- it has a seating area where the front desk person can leave their space, run in, mix you a drink and run back to work. Bar area is hot when it's warm out
3) there's a GREAT restaurant just a couple doors down that the front desk didn't even mention. it has a tree in the open courtyard center- great food and super help.

I spent two nights here in order to show a friend the main sights of Brasov. The position of the pension is perfect for that, very close to city center, in walking distance (about 1 km) or a very cheap taxi ride if you are to tired. The place was clean, comfortable and had the most impressive breakfast spread. Freshly made local food like eggplant salad, fish paste, cheese paste, hummus plus eggs, sausages, fresh vegetables. Also the cheese and meats platter had a very wide variety, about 5 or 6 cheeses and about the same of the cold cuts. Plus corn flakes, gems, fruits, juices, coffee and tea.
I would definitely stay here any time I find myself back in Brasov.

We chose it on suggestion from our business partner since it was the closest. Rooms are spacious and nice, with balcony and a nice view but no air conditioning. So you rely on the temp outside being perfect :) It gets cold outside but the problem was the heat.
TV was good and with a lot of channels. Internet was good as well and its free. Except Receptionists, no other speak English.
Conference rooms were small, but enough for us. I guess not good for groups of 10+ max. Coffee breaks arranged by them were OK, coffee and hot water were cold so and those are not cheap, at 12 eur maybe should be better.
Breakfast was OK as well, make sure you replenish things.
Price Vs Value i would say avg because there were options of similar pricing but a category higher.

This was a clean place with large rooms, nice bathrooms, friendly service and good breakfast with a pretty price tag. Great value for the money. About 1 km from the center of town, easy walk with a restaurant really near by.

Hosts effort to create a pleasant stay is admirable but remain some things that can be easily improved. For example, the smell of stagnant water in the bathroom, cop attitude of staff at check out. It's good when you're stopped one night passing through.

Brasov was the first stop of my Transylvania road trip and I decided to stay at Ambient Pension based on the price of the pension, location and other comments on Tripadvisor. The front desk staff was amazing and very helpful. They assisted me with things to do and see around Brasov and they helped me with directions to sights near Brasov.
My one complaint is probably my own fault, I booked the smallest room that they had. I was traveling alone so I didn't think this would be a big deal however it was summer time, very warm, and the room didn't have AC. I checked with the front desk to switch rooms however that was not an option and they had no more electric fans for the guests to borrow. I figured I would be alright left the window open during the night.....Well again, that was my mistake, I forgot how much mosquitos love foreign blood.
I definitely recommend this pension just make sure to pay attention to what exactly you are booking.

We stayed in this hotel in October half term, We highly recommend it, the room was great, we had a big comfy bed and large spacious bathroom, fridge and even a balcony, all the staff were lovely and very helpful and knowledgeable.
The hotel location is excellent with parking in front, its on a busy main street but nighttime noise is minimal. 10 minute max walk and you are in the city centre, which is really nice to visit.
Good breakfast with a nice atmosphere in the dining area.
The only thing to be aware of is there is no lift and lots of steps to climb, as we had a room on the top floor, but the room is definitely worth reaching!
