Great place, only 50 meter to the main point of interest. Owner is very hospitable. Comfortable rooms with bathroom and separate entries. Large place under the roof where you can spend time with friends.

The guest house is really pretty and the hosts are very welcoming. We really enjoyed our stay and we would highly recommend this place. They have an outside terrace where you can sit in the evenings and enjoy your stay. We had 2 rooms booked for us and my parents and we all enjoyed it very much.

Maria Stetca, the proprietor of this lovely homely B&B, is a friend of my hostess in Romania, so it was an obvious choice for our overnighter in Maramures. I was not disappointed. Maria is a gem; so welcoming and she had a specially-requested vegetarian supper awaiting our arrival after a long day of driving around looking at wooden churches and the rustic wonders of Maramures. The meal began with first class local Palinka. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on in my life and the huge soft pillow was luxurious. The place is spotless and enlivened by colourful traditional art work, embroideries and artefacts. Breakfast was generous - with a wide choice of interesting, fresh local food to choose from. Maria herself is a weaver and we were treated to a glimpse of her loom and working area, as well as the family parlour filled with beautiful cushions, hangings, cloths and embroideries. The pensiunea is diagonally opposite the church and Merry Cemetery right in the middle of Sapanta. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Nobody comes to Maramureș expecting a luxury hotel. This homestay gives us not only delicious food and clean beds but also rare insights into traditional way of life. Pros: - Friendliness and local knowledge of Ileana and her son Daniel - "Ceremony room" that Ileana proudly represents to her guests - Amazing dinner and breakfast (the best we have had in Romania) - Location literally a few steps from the Merry Cemetery - Cleanliness of the entire property Cons: - Old-fashioned décor especially the bathroom - Room size (in case of standard rooms) Good (or bad?) news: Ileana is building a new building next door. The rooms will be modern and thus pricier. But hopefully, this place will remain what it is, an authentic homestay with personal touches, not just a boutique guesthouse that can be found anywhere in the world.

It was on a summer vacation when some friends came to visit and I was thinking of offering them a traditional accommodation. In the rooms I found dust and misery, probably from other tourists, and the area was a noisy, not recommended for rest. I left disappointed there.

We booked this accommodation last minute as we decided on our trip to the Merry Cemetery. We couldn't have been more delighted. We were welcomed by Ileana herself and shown straight to our very clean room. In the evening, we were treated to an incredible Romanian meal accompanied with homemade palinca (really good as it can be quite nasty) and homemade wine. Gorgeous. The breakfast was an absolute feast and served with love and pride by Ileana and her son. I wish we were able to stay longer. The showers had hot water and good pressure and there is free onsite parking. Wifi was also very good. During the summer, sit on the terrace. Ensure you visit the Merry Cemetery across the street. Both Ileana and her son have great knowledge of the area. These were the perfect hosts. I really hope that we will return.

We simply love this guest house! It is just across the Merry Cemetery and sorunded by local market stalls with traditiona8l clothes, carpets, magnets and so many other stuff. There are 5 rooms here. Three of them have private bathroom, and 2 of them a shared bathroom qith a shower cabin, with hair dryer. Also, one room has twins beds and one room has a double bad and a single bed, good for families with one child. If you come here you will fill the true spirit of Sapanta and Maramures, due to the amazing owners which are so friendly and the traditional decorations all over this place. I am in love with the museum room, the indoor and the outside terrace. Also, the rooms keep the same style. They can offer you the Manu of the day for each meal and I truly recommend you to eat here, because everything the make it's fabulously deliciouse and you het the chance to taste the Romanian dishes. Also, they bring you a lot of food without paying extra... it's like an 'all you can eat' restaurant :)

My boyfriend and I stayed at Ileana's for one night during a week long visit to maramures. Ileana and her son Daniel were incredibly warm, welcoming and friendly. Ileana showed us her traditional maramures style room and told us about her house and family. We had a fantastic dinner consisting of ciorba de perisoare, sarmale with mamaliga and cakes all washed down with excellent palinca. Everything we ate was homemade and it was all wonderful. The room was comfortable and warm and after a good sleep we were ready for brrakfast- more delicious homemade treats the drob was absolutely delicious! Ileana showed us her loom and some of the products she had made. I cannot speak highly enough of our visit to ileana. She was a wonderful and welcoming host and I look forward to returning soon.
