Residence Hirscher
Ranked #18 of 55 Hotels in Brasov
Reviewed May 31, 2010

Nice, spacious apartment-style rooms. The kitchen could have been better equipped (a microwave would have been nice), and there was a bit of a smell of mold, but otherwise no complaints about the lodging. The location is outstanding - perfect for exploring the city. Our only problems were with parking and internet access. The hotel's website advertised that both were available, which was true, but with limitations. Parking is in public spaces in front of the hotel, and the machines only take coins of certain denominations. We had a surprisingly hard time finding enough change that the machines would accept. (There is some free parking around the corner, but you have to be lucky to find a spot there.) As for internet access, it's only available if you have a Romanian mobile phone number - the service has to send you a confirmation code via SMS, and it won't send one to anything other than a Romanian number. Neither of these problems was a big deal, but we wish we had known about them ahead of time.

I was very pleased with my accomodation. The hotel is very charming and is in the best location possible. The building has a great deal of history and the apartments are HUGE. I felt very comfortable and the staff was incredibly helpful and curteous. I would definitely recommend staying at the hotel.

I always stay at this hotel when visiting Brasov. The rooms are very spacious and in fact are one bedroom apartments with a sitting room and basic kitchen. For the business traveller the sitting room can be used for meetings as there is a large dining table to gather around or work at. Communications are excellent with hardwired broadband connection. The Residence Hirscher is also a few minutes walk from the historic city center with its multitude of restaurants.

As mentioned in the other reviews, our apartment had a large bedroom and a huge living room. The kitchen is small but who really wants to be in the kitchen when travelling. The staff is nice and helpful. There is parking spaces on the streets mostly with parking meters. The residence is just next to the central plaza, the centre of the city with all the restaurants, shops and pedestrian streets.

The apartment we stayed in was very spacious and had two floors. The bedroom was big and lovely. The toilet and the bathtub was spacious too. The apartment was cleaned everyday and we found everything in perfect order. The staff were very friendly too. As mentioned in other reviews, the kitchen is very small and doesn't contain much utensils. However, we ate mostly outside, with all the cafes and restaurants only a stone's throw away from the apartment. Overall this is the best place I've ever stayed in on my trips abroad. And, oh, the internet provided is good too, was very useful in searching for travel info etc. At the price and the service provided along with the location (in the middle of the old town), I think this is a real bargain!!! I will stay there again in the future.

Compared with most places we stayed in Romania this was a little pricey (95 EUR a night), but the apartments are large and very tastefully furnished and the location is perfect for sightseeing in Brasov.

Bathroom was lovely, kitchen nice but very small and not particularly well stocked (e.g. no chopping board), bedroom upstairs nice and living room/dining room downstairs roomy and comfortable.

There were 4 of us and my only real criticism is that the sofabed downstairs is not comfortable at all and we slept very badly the two nights we were there. But for a couple it would be fine as you wouldn't need the sofabed.
