“Where you meet excellence in Romania !”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

French citizen, living in Croatia, with a Croatian girlfriend, I use to regularly come to Romania since the mid of the 90’s. I recently convinced my girlfriend, her teen-aged son, and our friends, 3 couples, each of them being composed of a Croatian native and a foreigner (an Australian, an Italian, a German), together with 3 more teen-aged children, to forget all their a-priori about Romania and to come to enjoy this beautiful country, its nature, its monuments and its interesting cuisine.

The most important for us was the choice of a proper destination…and moreover of a perfect accommodation. We were happy we found both.

First, Brasov is the ideal start point for excursions in nearby mountains, medieval towns, the King’s Castle in Sinaia,… Certainly a very good idea when you want to start to discover what is Romania.

And we enjoyed the best stay we could hope for. Most of us have been travelling all over Europe or even the world. Our standards for the comfort, cleanliness, hospitality, safety and quietness of accommodations are really high. I was afraid I would not find anything like than in Brasov but our standards have been met by those two flats we rented in Brasov : Villa Arina and Apartment Mara.

Both belong to the same owner, whose politeness, kindness and dedication to his guests, starting from the very first exchange of mails we had when booking until the morning we left Brasov, is truly in par with the highest levels man can expect in other European top destinations. He advised us on restaurants based on our tastes, places to go out, the must do’s, the must see,…
He even helped us with paying the parking places by SMS during our whole stay using his own mobile phone, so we did not have to keep huge quantities of coins and to run to the street in the early morning to pay the parking meters. Btw the city of Brasov should develop a more clever system of payment of parking places for the foreign guests coming by cars.

What made us also decide to book those particular two flats? The fact that, while having each their own separate access with a main door, they share a communication door we asked our host to unlock, so we could easily move from one flat to another flat. It made our stay even more practical and comfortable. Our teens were so happy to be able to easily meet, without having to go through the main doors, especially on the only day and night it rained during our stay. In fact it was like renting a huge flat, instead of two.

Flats are… amazing : all the amenities are new, clean, functional…and well designed. Much better looking in reality than on the pictures. Wifi was very well working, stable and fast.
And we had such a feeling of space, rooms being large, including the bathrooms. One of our friend, who often complains about how tiny are bathrooms in European hotels or homes, was really positively impressed by those ones. And all the bathrooms and kitchen are as well equipped - if not better - as in our homes in Croatia.

Add on top of that the fact we rapidly developped, within a few hours, the feeling to be at home, the flats being calm, away from the street noises, so cosy and so nicely decorated, attention can be found even in the smallest details… Nothing to see with this widely spread total lack of personality bared by most of the rooms in hotel chains, even the so-called prestigious ones.

So, yes, we enjoyed our stay in Brasov at those two flats, thanks to our host, to his delicate tastes for furnishing and decorating the flats, and to his real sense of what must be customer's satisfaction . We will surely come back to Brasov as we did not spend enough time there, we will stay again at those flats and we already started to recommend them to our friends and relatives.

“Perfect! Amazing!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 for a stay in February 2014

In the first floor an amazing and well equip kitchen with everything you can think of, plus a big table that can hold 6-10 people easily. you have a washing machine, oven and everything.
In the second floor you have a big living room with a large LCD TV, a shower which is separated from the toilet (which is great because you can go to the toilet while someone is taking a shower) , 2 rooms with a big balcony.
In the third floor, you have another big living room with a large LCD TV and another toilets and shower AND another large suite with another LCD TV and Jacuzzi and everything.

It made our vacation really good and fun! very recommended!

“Probably the best accomodation in downtown Brasov”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We booked this accommodation as the pictures were showing a nice beautifully designed place in downtown Brasov. It was a great surprise to see that in reality the house was even nicer and more stylish than in the pictures, that the kitchen was perfectly equipped and large enough for our group of 9, that the equipment and utensils were top quality. Children (and not only) had plenty of fun in the jacuzzi and overall the vacation was great. And not to forget that the house administrator is a very nice guy, helpful and available all the time.
