“Your starting place for a great experience in a beautiful area!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

The Bran/Brașov area is, in my opinion, the most beautiful one in Romania if mountains are your thing. Nested between the Piatra Craiului range and the Bucegi mountains, in a beautiful hilly area, this is the spot where you can see Romania at its best.

And if you want more than just a quiet, serene place to stay, but which is not far away from shops/restaurants/bars, Casa Cehov is my recommendation. The owner, Ion Trandafir, is born and raised in Bran and, having travelled the world as a world tour freeride skier, brings together local knowledge and huge mountain experience. His mountain bike tours will leave you longing for more and you'll prolong your stay or come back again soon. He can advice on hiking and trekking tours in the whole huge area and, if you happen to want something he can't do himself, he'll put you in touch with the right people.

Be sure to write if you happen to have questions, I tried to write this review as thorough and complete as possible.

Room Tip: Book in advance :)

it is a grate place to find your self, for me it is a corner of peace and a positive attitude towards every outdoor activity, even if you are not a sports fan, you will became one after a trip to Pensiunea Cehov, it`s a bit like going back in time, when people were more calm, and had more respect for everything for nature in all it`s wild beauty, for people all around. the owners are the most amasing couple together, ion and ioana, they will help you with everything you need, from renting a bike to a hike in Bucegi...The food is grate, if you are not carefull you might gain a few pounds in stead of losing them....

Room Tip: choose any room, they are great, but if you are a hopeless romantic choose the vest side from where...

I stayed at Casa Cehov several times in the last two years. Every time I fully appreciated its location, its cleanliness, the excellent advice and the guiding on outdoor and sport-related activities that is done by experts: a former Freeride World Tour skier and his wife are the owners of Casa Cehov and the usual guests are hikers, mountain bikers, backcountry skiers, freeride skiers and other species of outdoor, nature and sport enthusiasts. It feels as if you are visiting and staying with friends, really.
The only downside is that food is usually not provided at all on location, not even breakfast, except for groups.

When i first saw on their website that smoking is not allowed and they have a discount for sport lover, i knew that we are going to spend a lovely holiday. Ion, the owner, which is a former free-ride ski champion, now riding his bike with the same great skills is the best pension owner that i've ever met!
He helped us configuring some mountain-bike journeys, also helping us with some GPS devices.
Cehov is a very cozy place to stay. Large living-room with chimney and sofa allows you to spend some quality time even if the weather is bad.
There is a lot of green near the building and a lot of possibilities to spend the time.
The breakfast is also very tasty and there is a lot of food.
The Bran area is very famous for Dracula's Castle but you can have a lot of fun even withuot visiting it (like we did).
Next week we will be again Ion's guest for a nice biking weekend and we made a promise: when we go to Bran, we will always accommodate at Cehov.
I strongly recommend this piece of Heaven (i remembered that i felt like this eating natural strawberries from behind the Pension.

Room Tip: all the rooms are quiet, but try to choose one not so near the stairs.

Lovely place to spend a week-end. It is very close to Brasov, very quiet. The host is very kind.
i recommend it if you want to go skiing, biking or hiking. Ion can give you ideas of numerous bike trails around or just to backpack towards Bucegi.
We came there in a 10+ group. Food was good.
it's also suitable for families.

Quiet, clean rooms with great people working there. Also it s great for people who like sport. I go there twice a year. Each time people greet us with open arms and a nice word. They organize biking trips around the area. The rooms have a great view.

Pensiunea Cehov was the accommodation arranged by Charity Challenges and I can only echo the other positive reviews here. It's a great place to say, the hosts are great people and very helpful. The hotel is away from the main road and therefore very quite, the rooms are spacious light and comfortable, with terrific views. I didn't see anyone comment on the food, though I didn't read all the reviews. But breakfast was always great and varied a little each day, NEVER had an evening meal that wasn't really good, though the stuffed peppers have to be my favourite.
Looking for somewhere to stay in Transylvania? This is the place :)
