Reviewed September 26, 2012

For a comfortable stay, handy to the train station, at very reasonable prices, look no further in Braşov. Anu and Daniel are excellent hosts, there is a modern kitchen for guests, and a 24 hour grocery store literally right up the sidewalk a few blocks. The walk from the train station is a good 20 minutes (be wary of taxis in Romania- some are very reasonable and others are tourist ripoffs). Head right on the main road in front of the station, go through two rotary intersections (continuing straight), and turn right at a pharmacy (green sign) a few blocks past the second rotary. The Despani is on the right and the bell to ring it on top of the sign to the left. This is NOT a B & B; you will obtain your own food, which you can prepare in the kitchen and enjoy on the dining table or on a table outside. The kitchen has everthing you need, including a large refrig/freezer. Really good value!

Room Tip: Most rooms will face a fairly busy road and the building is not fully soundproofed. If you are part...

We stayed three night in Brasov at this very cosy and comfortable guesthouse. Our double room was clean and welcoming with a modern touch and very good safety. The bathroom had a large bathtub and if you wanted to bath outside there was a nice swimmingpool (even though we didn't use it). It was very easy to get into city center and to the train station.

The owners were very welcoming, friendly and helpful with everything. We got thorough information of Brasov upon arrival which we much appriciated.

Overall a perfect accomodation!

Anu and her husband Daniel are very kind and available people. They made a big welcome at our arrive and we remained enchanted from garden and swimming pool. The room was very nice and clean. We appreciated the taste of furniture and colours. The bathroom is big and there is a modern big bathtube. They show us functionalities of our room, then how to living in the house common spaces. Also they gave us information about how to move in Brasov and surroundings, a map and advise about restaurants, pub, supermarket, ecc... Daniel was always available for everything we needed. We enjoyed a lot staying at Anu guesthouse!

After reading the reviews of thisn family run guesthouse we had high expectations. We were not disapointed. Danial the owner gave us some good advice and maps etc. Rooms were clean and airy. Bathroom was clean with large bathtub and instant hot water. Downstairs is a well stocked kitchen so if you prefer to self cater everything is there. Recomended

Room Tip: If you are a smoker ask for a room with a balcony

This is a small, family run pension on the outskirts of Brasov but ideally located for visiting the centre and environs. The facilities are excellent - everything top class with great attention to all the little details that make a place a home from home. Kitchen facilities are perfect for saving money and eating in and socialising with others , if you dont want to go to restaurants every night. The owners, Anu and Daniel, are very helpful and friendly; they have years of experience in hospitality business and speak a wide variety of languages whilst introducing you to local schnapps!
An excellent place to come with young children also - Anu and Daniel have two great boys of 7 and 8 years and there is space and toys in the gardens.
Very fairly priced
We will definitely return next year!

Room Tip: All rooms are fine. Only two have balconies , swimming pool is small but ok

This a great "home away" location, very close to the city centre. Although i have spent only one night while riding for a competition in the area, the hosts immediately made us feel like home.
The place has a beautiful cosy kitchen, where you can have your breakfast in the morning. The bathrooms are big and very nicely decorated while the rooms are very clean and offer a great price value compared to what you can find in the area of Brasov.
i would recommend this place to anyone who likes a cosy home like atmosphere....i forgot to mention the beautiful little garden and pool:). hope to be back there again!

The owner lives on site and is extremely helpful and friendly. Very nice rooms, with bathtub! A big common room downstairs with well equipped kitchen and plenty of room for cooking and eating. Nearby shops. A little way out of the centre, but not beyond easy walking distance, and taxis are extremely cheap; very close to the bus station for Bran Castle. A particularly friendly place where guests sit around and get to know each other.
