“Poor experience”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

A totally fake 5 stars.
No SPA (just a Jacuzi) no Massage (a woman will come from outside), no gym.
Breakfast definitely one of the most poor i have ever seen.
Proposed coffee is like dirty water and if you ask for a real espresso they charge it extra even if in my case you hire the biggest suite they have.

Room are by the way very nice and clean. Tv has volume limited so low that in any case you can't listen it.

For who described the services of the hotel as "wonderful" or "amazing" i would like to ask them if they ever went in a real 4 or 5 stars.

Binder Bubi is a nice family run hotel , should be just a 3 stars, fair but nothing more.

Room Tip: For what it cost you can take the suite 101

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to rate your stay at our hotel in Sighisoara ! We're sorry that your stay wasn't as good as it could have been.

However, I must say, our Spa Center consists of 3 types of sauna ( dry, wet and hay sauna), Jacuzzi and a relaxing room. Meanwhile access to Spa is included in the room price, massage is offered by our own specialized masseuse at extra cost.

Coffee is prepared from fine Julius Meinl coffee and we're sorry it was not on your taste, we are preoccupied with improving coffee and general breakfast experience of our guests.

We are pleased that you enjoyed the room !

Please note that Hotel Rating/Classification in Romania is made by Ministry Of Development and Tourism according to International and EU Regulations.

I hope you enjoyed Sighisoara, Transylvania and Romania and you will come back to visit our country ! Best regards

We found this hotel after an unsuccessful attempt to stay in a hotel in the old city. The hotel is conveniently situated outside the old city, but at a very short walking distance. The rooms were spacious, fully airconditioned, with nice bathrooms and amenities.
There is a parking space for several cars which is an important facility in this area. Breakfast, included in the room price was rich while we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food in the hotel restaurant, where we had both lunch and diner. What impressed us a lot was the friendly and very efficient service. SPA is well equipped and the massage we had was very good. On top of all the above prices are more than reasonable for what they offer. I would strongly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room in higher floor.

The hotel is located just at the base of the citadell, 5 minutes walk in a quiet area. Has woden decorations and great painting displays. The food was very good, breakfast included in the room price. The service, asolutely fabulous! But the cherry on the top was the spa. It isn't large but is very well equiped. And the acces price, very reasonable. You have to book a relaxing massage, it's quite an experience.

Binder Bubi is extraordinary hotel. Bit funny, because of wooden overdecorating, with pompous red carpets everywhere, but comfortable, with home atmosphere. It is located, slightly out of city centre, at the peaceful, side street. Our large room, with good equipped bathroom, has guaranteed full comfort, top quality of sleeping and nice view on the town. The hotel offers free parking and free WiFi in the rooms. The hotel restaurant appeared the best option for dining in Sighisoara, where the bars and restaurants are rather touristy and ordinary. The staff, especially in restaurant, was extremely friendly, with good communication in English. The things, could be improved, are: quite poor wine list and not very plentiful breakfast. Also the fee, we have paid, was reasonable - 75 € per day for double room. Sleeping there two nights, we had really enjoyable time.

Very nice hotel with very friendly and professional staff.
Its location is not far from the Clock Tower.
Very good breakfast with different kinds of food..bacon, eggs, cereal, sausages,fruits, salad, yogurt, sandwiches etc. We once had dinner here and although it's a 5*, the prices are reasonable.

I would definitely recommend BB hotel.

The relatively new hotel is on a quiet back street in town below the Castle. We had a junior suite with large high ceiling room, but only a single very small window. We had a good sized sitting area with couch, chair and desk. Very nice fully tiled bath with stall shower. BB has a very attractive wood paneled restaurant with impeccably dressed waiters. Would you believe they wear white gloves? Dinner was excellent with excellent friendly service. Breakfast was not up to 5-star standards. Watered down strained orange juice, canned fruit cocktail, low quality bread selection, over-cooked sausage bits.

Binder Bubi has a funny name but is one of the most welcoming, comfortable and pleasant hotel in the country! It is a very well managed hotel, with extremely friendly and accommodating staff - actually this is their strongest point! We felt relaxed and at home and we would love to go back!

There is a lot of wood everywhere, but the room was generous enough for all three of us to feel comfortable (we travelled with our 6 year old). The restaurant has better food than the one you can find elsewhere in Sighisoara, but be prepared for a heavier type of cuisine.

There is wi-fi that works well in the room, but strangely enough not in the lobby or restaurant.

Also, after 6 hours on the train, my back was hurting so I booked a massage and it was a great idea! I felt tones better after it. The spa looked nice and I was sorry I didn't go prepared.

All in all, our stay in Sighisoara would not have been as pleasant without Binder Bubi, as we went out of season and we saw what there was to be seen in a couple of hours. We left the hotel convinced we would return soon.

The only thing I would suggest is maybe a little activity corner for the children, as ours didn't have much to do. Even so, he still liked it...:-)
