“Not at its best in the summer heat”
Reviewed August 25, 2008

Chose the hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. Location is brilliant with easy access to the sights of Brasov and the restaurant provides a really good experience of Romanian food.

I don't think other reviewers could have stayed in the heat of summer when there are different requirements. Temperatures were around 30C when we were there. There is no air conditioning and the room we had was on the ground floor so there is an understandable reluctance to leave the windows open when the room is not occupied. The room was also fairly compact and the shower was temperamental (-small leak and unsteady head). Breakfast was OK but not up to the standard of their restaurant or of other hotels in Romania that we visited.

In winter it would be probably seen as cosy and warm but in summer it is rather cramped and stifling. We stayed 4 nights but the niggles about the hotel didn't stop us enjoying our time seeing the sights in and around the Brasov area which were well worth the visit.

  • Liked — The location on the main square could not be beaten for convenience.
  • Disliked — The hotel doesn't match the standards in the restaurant - no air conditioning.

We stayed at Bella Muzica Hotel last weekend and indeed it's a lovely place. Great location, a warm atmosphere and a great restaurant.
The only thing that botherd me was the size of the room (the distance between the bed and the wall is very small).
In conclusion it's a place where I will stay again.

On the day of our arrival at Bella Muzika we were called at 7:30am and a message was left on our telephone asking for us to confirm our reservation (that had been booked for two months!) within 2 hours or it would be cancelled. We have already changed our whole holiday itinerary just so we could stay here so this didnt sound good. After calling back we were given the run around and were told the person who left the original message would call back. They did - 3 hours later!

We arrived to a surly receptionist who advised that there was no bookings available for dinner in the hotel and given our room.

The rooms are immaculate although very small. I stubbed my toe on numerous occasions trying to get past the bed.

The room had a mini bar although no tea and coffee making facilities.

Excellent location although usual surly romanian customer service.

Bella Muzica is located right off of Piata Sfatului. It is perfectly situated and within easy walking distance for seeing the most significant sites in Brasov. I booked through the hotel's website and received a very prompt response via e-mail. The hotel does not have an elevator/lift and this was emphasized in the hotel's e-mail which indicated a ground floor room was not available, but a room on the third floor was. Lack of an elevator wasn't a problem for me but the notice was appreciated. My room was nice, clean and comfortable. Front desk service wasn't the greatest and I had to wait over five minutes while the receptionist finished a personal conversation at check-in. Upon checkout, it was indicated that a towel was missing from the room - I did not steal one of their towels (although they were pretty nice)! I emphatically indicated such and it was not an issue, but it was still a little insulting. The restaurant was excellent with very good service as was the breakfast. I would stay at this hotel again.

I stayed at Bella Musica and ate at the restaurant attached to the hotel. It's a lovely boutique hotel, friendly staff and the restaurant does great food. Try the massive steaks - and papanash for desert if they are on the menu.

The Bella Musica Hotel was a great experience in Brasov. We were there at the end of October 2006. They have a restaurant which is fairly well known, but the hotel has only been in business for less than two years. It's in an old building that has been updated, (they did a wonderful job), and has a boutique feel. The restaurant is directly downstairs from the lobby. The location is great for Brasov, right off the main square, Piata Sfatuli, and very near to the Black Church. The staff was very helpful and friendly, especially Alex. He assisted us with our railpass planning, even doing internet searches for us, and making calls. The room we had was very nice, and they did a wonderful job with the decor. Kind of upscale Transylvanian....dark wood accents, and beautiful window treatments. The town of Brasov was just beautiful, and nearby is Bran Castle, and the old fortress at Rosenau, or Rasov. The pedestrain shopping street is rigt off the Piata, and the walking tour of the town, including the old city walls and towers, is nearby. Kudos to the Bella Musica.
