“Comfortable, friendly and convenient”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

We stayed here for a couple of days in November 2012. There were three of us, so we booked the triple room, which had one floor with two twin beds and a loft with a double bed. The bathroom was large as well. It was the perfect size for us.

The receptionist who worked at the front desk and the owners were all very friendly. Breakfast was good and they told us we could order whatever we wanted from the menu and as much as we liked.

The hotel is not in the city center, but Sibiu being a small place, it's a quick walk from the hotel to 'downtown.'

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

We stayed here a night in September and had a really good time.
It is a few minutes’ walk from the central parts of Sibiu, but not far enough to cause any trouble. On the contrary, it made the surrounding more quite. By the way, the next door neighbor was a graveyard and a very nice orthodox church.
The room was large, clean and fresh, but the bed was one floor up and the ceiling was very, very low there. It was so low that we couldn’t stand next to the bed. Since I had a leg that hurt, this was a bit of a problem. Otherwise it was very romantic.
The service was extremely good. The girl (the owners nice?) in the reception did a marvelous job and should have a lot of credit for a very good stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Casa Cardinal in Sibiu. The room was large, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The staff were all wonderful and so helpful, especially Christina at the front desk. The hotel is an easy walk from the gorgeous center of the city and any amenity you might need and also contains a restaurant.

Pension Casa Cardinal deserves all the good reviews it gets!
The personnel is very helpful and friendly, the rooms are cooled efficiently by the air con and they have character. The towels are made into swans and elephants before being laid on the bed. We booked suites and were amazed at the value for money, as up to 5 people can sleep in them. We loved the retro phone and paintings. The food was great, maybe the best food I have eaten in Romania. Real home-made taste!
It is situated in a short walking distance from the Main Square and centre of Sibiu. I was afraid we could not sleep at night, as there was a big rock concert nearby, but the insulation of the suite was great so we had a great sleep. Very clean and well looked after.

Room Tip: Both doubles are suites are great

Lovely spacious room and helpful and welcoming staff,not too far from the historic centre of Sibiu.I walked back on my own at night and felt safe. Breakfast was good and the service attentive. The room for 3 was split level and very large. The hotel was also very good value for money and I would recommend it.

We enjoyed our stay here and were made to feel very welcome by all of the staff. The room was very spacious and clean. Area felt safe to walk around and it was only a short walk to the centre. breakfast was also included in the room rate which we were not aware of and it was the best breakfast we had in Romania!

They are in a very good location, about 7-10 minute walk from the beginning of historic area. There's also a gigantic park 10 minute walk the opposite direction that you'd take to the historic area, which is beautiful, then after the park there's a field where the locals hang out and then a zoo by a beautiful lake, after which a small forest and then Sibiu's village museum (bigger than Bucharest's and a lot less tourists). The room was clean, big, nicely furnished. The hotel staff and manager really cared about our comfort. The breakfast each morning was very good and plentiful. The lady who served us at breakfast was very good, always got our order right, and was very pleasant, however she can smile a bit more (I know a cultural thing to not smile much). They arranged a bus for us to the next town and even drove us to the bus station for free. Their employee helped us with our bags and was very pleasant. From start to finish they were great.

Our room was right over the patio of the restaurant where the employees and guests come out to smoke. Whenever we opened the windows, the smoke filled our room and it was disturbing to us non-smokers. One night, there was a group of French tourists who thought it would be a great idea to have late dinner at a big dining room table which happened to be on our floor, right by our room. (We still don't know why they have a big table there :) They were kind of loud and even turned the TV on which was there by the table and our room as well. For some reason, the soundproofing isn't very good in the room through the door, we heard everything almost as if it was inside our room. We called the front desk, she asked them to be quiet immediately and they left right away. They have no elevator in the hotel, but they will help you with your bags. I would recommend to ask them for a room on the top floor so that you don't hear everyone coming down the stairs in the morning,

They are a good value in Sibiu, would recommend them overall.
