If you want to really feel the spirit of Brașov, you will for certain achieve it by staying in our 16th century historic building, whose architecture has not been changed for over 400 years. This is where Prince Michael the Brave, the voievod of Wallachia (the southern part of today's Romania) spent a few nights, when he visited the then-Mayor and head judge of Brașov, Valentin Hirscher, in 1600. The property also features a garden enclosed by the medieval walls of the city. The flat has a generous private staircase made of natural wood hundreds of years old, which leads to an entrance hallway tastefully decorated in keeping with the history of the building.

The flat has a generous private staircase made of natural wood hundreds of years old, which leads to an entrance hallway tastefully decorated in keeping with the history of the building. There is a bedroom, with a double bed, TV and wardrobe and a living room with an expandable sofa bed and a second TV set where two more can sleep. In the living room, there is also a working space (desk and ergonomic desk chair) for those who travel for work or simply want to check their emails without getting backache. A fully furnished kitchen (microwave, cooking hob, fridge, washing machine, dishwasher) provides you with the space to cook your own breakfast, thus allowing for a relaxed start to the day. For the comfort of our guests, the toilet room is separate from the shower room. The shower room is very modern and a steaming hot shower is available whatever the season. The apartment has a separate entrance and staircase, which makes it unique and provides a lot of privacy. All windows are south-facing, so the flat benefits from natural light all day long and also direct sunlight between 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. Due to its thick medieval walls, the flat is very cool in summer and warm in winter. When you come to Brașov, do not just visit the local attractions. Live in one! More

About the neighborhood
Although it is situated in the heart of the historic centre of Brașov, the flat is very quiet as it doesn't overlook the street, so you cannot hear the traffic. For a fully medieval experience, the only things you can actually hear are the bells of the Black Church and chimes from the clock in Piața Sfatului Main Square which have been ringing out uninterrupted since 1460! Coming out of the building, if you cross the street and walk 50 meters to the right, you are in front of the Black Church and if you walk 50 meters to the left, you are in the Brașov's Main Square (Piața Sfatului). The pedestrian area with the main pedestrian street featuring the best restaurants and bars (Republicii Street) starts here.
Getting around
You can explore all the tourist attractions by foot, there are supermarkets within walking distance (Carrefour and LIDL are just 15-minutes away). As you come out of the building, you have numerous restaurants and terraces (from May to October) and pubs to choose from. The pedestrian area starts 50 meters from the flat. There is a specialist wine shop selling all the best local and Romanian wines across the street.
