We had a great time there, the room was clean and comfortable, the building and landscape have a traditional architecture with beautiful decorations and the manager is a lovely, smart and welcoming lady. I would highly recommend Pension Ela and certainly will stay there again at our next trip to Transilvania

Our room was very clean, bathroom was small but also very clean, good relation room-price, not very expensive.
the best thing is a family atmosphere and wonderful garden, peace and quiet, nice people - especially the owners of the pension, beautiful surroundings, a place for spending time - garden, arbor and grill :)

The rooms are not cleaned, especially the bathroom. The internet and the TV are not working. It is too cold in the rooms, even in October. When we ask dor a higher temperature, the did not do anything. They provide only one towel per person. I think nobody should stay there (even the owner).

I will return to this place with my parents after having brought my wife and kids for and very pleasant stay. I will also be recommending this place to other friends for its value, location, peaceful inner hof and picturesque outside dining area with antiques and folk art decorating the perimeter. The roses which run up the sides of the 75 ft long wall will be stunning once they are blooming. Our room was nice and clean with a tidy bathroon although my lower bunk bed creaked a bit. The owner, Ela, was surprisingly very fluent in German and English and very warm and welcoming. Very important as a first impression for the guests. Easy and safe access to the accommodation. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the upper rooms if they have not been taken as the view will be great. Try to phone a...

We spent 3 nights at Pensinuea Ela in Sibiu this April while visiting Romania. The owner, Ela, is an absolutely wonderful, welcoming person. She greeted us with hugs and great advice about places to visit. There is breakfast (bread, jelly, meats, yogurt) available for 5 euro extra a day- which is nice. We enjoyed getting to meet other people staying at the Villa. They have two nice outdoor gazebos to eat, drink, hang out in as well as a spacious backyard. It is centrally located about 5 minutes walking from Old Town Sibiu. The location was great and the people were wonderful! The rooms are not extravagant but do just fine. I would stay there again. Felt like home!

My husband and I wandered over to Pensiunea Ela unannounced at about 8 at night while on honeymoon. Despite looking very confused when we rang the bell, the owners quickly led us around their pension and set us up with a room.

The room was comfortable and impeccably clean, with a nice, en-suite bathroom (with a decent shower). The bed, though simple, was very comfortable. There were English-language TV channels available on the TV.

The best part about this very cozy pension is the owners. Ela is fantastically nice and helpful, and is very happy to chat away with her guests. The pension's dog, Lassie, is sweet (though a little mouthy--he definitely made a move for my hand once or twice) and low-key. Breakfast is very simple--not, perhaps, worth the money but certainly very convenient for the low-maintenance traveler.

Also, this pension is very centrally located in a local's kind of neighbourhood. It is not surrounded by other pensions and hotels, and is a great place to stay if you want to get a sense of real life in Sibiu. It is also only a quick walk (five minutes) from the medieval centre, which makes it perfectly located for sightseeing and nightlife.

We had a great time here and would stay here again.
