Pension am Schneiderturm
Ranked #1 of 47 Sighisoara B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Due to the excellent reviews I had high expectations for this place - I thought it will be our best stay during the 14 days Romania tour. In the end it was just ok - which was almost a dissappointment because I expected too much.

The rooms are very small and not much comfort in it (a super small TV). The owner was not overwhelming friendly (contrary to other reviews). The highly praised organic breakfast are just 2 table full of different ham and cheese and jams (10 kind of cheese and ham are still just cheese and ham , we would have preferred some eggs).

All in all, the Pension was still quite ok, not too expensive, in an excellent location and clean. I would recommand it - but don´t expect too much!

My boyfriend and I spent two days at Pension am Schneiderturm and had a fantastic experience. Sorin is so hospitable and we spent a very enjoyable, fun afternoon in the sun drinking local wine with him and some other guests. He was helpful from the moment we arrived, making us feel welcome and offering great advice about the area. There's a good reason he is No.1,really a first class B&B with very comfortable and clean rooms and a great breakfast, I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Sighisoara.

I spent two nights in this lovely B&B pension, which is located at the wall of Sighisoara old-town. Room was quite small, but compact which nice furnitures and it offered nice views to over the old-town. The breakfast was superb, all organic food with local taste. The owner, Sorin, was very kind and nice person and he gave us a lot of information not only for the old-town but also sights nearby. Hint: if you travel by car, you can leave your car out of side of the old-town were you can find plenty of free parking places.

This is a really cool building and the rooms are fantastic. The location is in the heart of the citadel and great for seeing the sights. Great breakfast using local and organic produce. Really good service.

Where shall I start... I stayed here for two nights in June 2013, if I had the time I would still be there.

Everything was perfect - the room, tiny, but very clean, the location, the staff - well, that was more or less Sorin - the owner, the breakfast, the coffee.... It is one of the best places I ever stayed in - and I`ve been around a lot.

Thank you, Sorin - you got a perfect lttle place. I will be back on my Harley on of these days...

A really authentic place! You stay at a hotel that is a really medieval house with very old wooden furniture but definitely with modern conveniences. Our double room was quite small, but we expected it and had nothing against as we stayed for just one night and wanted this experience. We were fully rewarded. Everything was perfect, just what we had expected: a hospitable and helpful host, his ancient house and its location, the room, the wooden authentic furniture, the plentiful organic food variety that was offered for breakfast! It all went so well with the air of the town! We definitely recommend the pension.

The owner is very helpfull.
The breakfast (locally produced products) is outstanding (5 kinds of local produced honey)
The rooms are very romantic
The location is perfect.
We felt very good and recommend this place strongly.
Of course it is not a 5-Star hotel and the house is old and thus some of the rooms might be small for a couple. But exactly this is the point at this place: Oldfashioned charme

Room Tip: The place has no pool and fitnessstudio. I marked it by accident. Room 4 is somewhat small for a co...
