We stumbled on a great find in the hilltop fortress (The Citadel) of this city. There are some hotels in the Citadel but this was much better than any of the hotels we saw.
These rooms are located next to the Citadel wall and just meters from the Cizmarilor Tower (one of the 12 watch towers). Between Marius and his teenage son they speak English, German, Romanian and French. We paid 20 Euro per night per room. There are 4 rooms in a newly built wing with comfortable furnishings. The place is spotless and smells like fresh air all the time. The 4 rooms on 2 floors share 2 bathrooms (1 on each landing). The rooms offer different combinations of different size beds and each has a TV. Breakfast is not included. You can pet the family dog for free. We were very comfortable and would
definitely stay here again. To truly experience the Citadel and
Sighisoara properly a stay in the Citadel is recommended. Walking the Citadel at night is great. It's very different from day time when the place is crowded with tourists and the place is in full swing with the souvenir stands, shops and outdoor cafes doing a booming business. The Citadel is only 3 kilometers from the train station (but it's almost straight up) and a taxi was about $1 to get there. My husband and I are in our 40s and not backpackers. We were much more comfortable with Marius than we would have been in the nearby hotels (which had too many bad reviews to be acceptable to us)
