“Great place, location and service that goes that extra mile”

We stayed in this lovely clean and smack bang in the middle of Sighisoara apartment as part of our trip through Romania in May. The apartments are in a beautiful old building in the old town which we reached by simply calling the owner from the train station after getting off or train from Cluj. He was there with his car within a few minutes and is a super friendly and helpful gentleman. Once at his place we were offered some complimentary local schnapps to settle in. He also dropped us back to the train station for our onward journey.

On reaching our next hotel we discovered that the suit I had with me (we were at a Romanian friend's wedding) had been left behind. After calling back to the owner here we worked out the best way to get the suit back to Munich, Germany. He posted it to us and refused any payment for this lovely gesture.

Highly recommended for the location, cleanliness, lovely old furniture with all modern amenities and a decent hardworking team. Real Romanian hospitality!!!!

“Excellent accommodation in a great location”

We stayed here for a week, and everything was perfect. From the moment we arrived we felt straight at home. The apartment is really clean, a very nice woman, Christine, was always available to help with cleaning, washing etc. The apartment has a very good fitted kitchen with plenty of utensils. The location is amazing, right in the old citadel. We met the owner and his family on our first day, a really helpful family. Then we were dealing with the manager who was also really helpful. Parking across the cobbled street was very convenient. Also, a very nice back garden with a BBQ was most welcome and very private.
There is access to a laundry room also. I could not recommend this accommodation highly enough. Thanks to you all for a wonderful stay.

“Excellent beyond expectation”

We have booked a family suite for two nights in this hotel mostly by chance - we had arrived on a Friday the evening and had booked a different hotel, but had to cancel on the spot due to it being incorrectly advertised as located close to the citadel when it was not.

We booked through a very popular travel portal and within less than two minutes since our reservation was confirmed, we got a call from the owner who literally gave us directions while we drove to the hotel door.

Owner: the hotel is run by a young family with two kids. Both Ovidiu and his wife were very kind and helpful, and we notice they were greeting all guests personally. A bottle of tuica (traditional Romanian brandy) was available at the entrance for everybody. During our stay, the owner called several times to make sure all is well and gave us a tour of the property.

LOCATION: in the very heart of the Citadel, just meters away from the main attractions and the best restaurants. Parking is not available at the hotel due to municipality imposed restruictions, but a paid parking is available just outside the Citadel for about 1 EUR per day. It is however possible to drive up to the hotel door and drop the luggage, but if you leave the car at night there you will surely find a ticked on the windshield.

ROOM: our apartment was very clean and very spacious - entry through a large kitchen/dining room, fully equiped with a fridge, a Philips coffee maker and all that is normally found in a kitchen. We were very pleasantly surprised to find a mini USB charger and a Samsung tablet with a mobile data plan just there for guests's use - OK to take it away when going on a walk. That was actually in addition to the excellent WiFi.

We found the fridge stuffed with water, sodas, wine and some snacks - and a price list. The prices were more like at supermarket level than what normally charged for a mini-bar, so this was quite a convenience after our long trip.

Both rooms were spacious and nicely furnished. One of the bedrooms connected to a kids room where you had to go up on a small wooden stair and was about 150cm tall, furnished with two beds. This was kind of a bonus since it was not advertised and the kids loved it. However, you should keep an eye on the kids at night if they wake up to go to the bathroom as the stairs are rather steep.

OTHER: No air conditioned, but the very thick centuries old walls make up for it and we found the inside quite call despite the heat outside. When we met the owner, he issued us a receipt but insisted that we only pay at the end of our stay - we left the money on kitchen table as instructed, no other questions asked.

One of the best accomodations we ever had - when again in Sighisoara, we will definitiely stay here.

I stayed here for a few nights with my fiance and I could not have been more pleased. The owner and manager were great from the onset.

It is perfectly located on the main street with great restaurants and shops. The apartments are clean and beautiful. The backyard is lovely.

I would highly recommend to anyone!

This house is located in the heart of the Sighisoara citadel, being surrounded by all major touristic attractions.
There are 3 apartments, very clean, quiet and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything necessary and the owner (Mr. Ovidiu) is very nice and helpful.
Wi-Fi connection is very good and free of charge.
Free parking place is possible on the premises.
You should inform the owner about your arrival time in order to be there to hand over the access keys.
I strongly recommend this place for families

“Excellent accommodation in a gourgeous city”

We absolutely LOVED our stay at Casa Mador. This was probably one of the greatest acommodation that I have ever stayed at. The owner met us when we arrived in Sighisoara, he was such a nice guy. Our apartment had 2 bedrooms, it was very simply but so tastefully designed and furnished, in the spirit of Sighisoara. I guess the simplicity of the apartment made it so warm and cozy and comfortable. We found unlimited tea and coffee inside, water, even a mini bar (for extra pay, of course). The apartment itself is situated on one of the city's main streets and has a small, old courtyard which gives the whole property a medieval allure, if I can say so. There's free wi-fi and parking and the we had a view to one of the old streets of Sighisoara. This is one lovely place and we'll definetly return here.

We hit it off with a toast to life with our host with the local 'Zuike' and enjoyed the great settings of the rooms. Its in the center of everything you want to see, rooms are very big and comfortable, the porch is amazing for breakfast and there are a washing machine and a dryer. couldn't ask for more on the road
