Beautifully decorated well appointed rooms with good showers (warm water, water pressure good). Traditional Romanian decor throughout the traditional wooden house. Wonderful meal prepared by the hosts from local/ homegrown ingredients..highly recommended. Very friendly and helpful. Hope to come back some day.

Very welcoming people. The place is humble and clean, located on the main street, very close to the church and the famous cemetery. Food was excellent, served in the traditionally decorated living room, one of the best meal we had in Romania.

The entire place was clean and inviting. The people, particularly Daniel, were lovely. If you are in the area then this is a great place to stay. One of the highlights of our Romanian road trip and somewhere we will fondly remember for a long time.

Actually, there are two reasons, the other being The Merry Cemetery, but Ileana's guesthouse is stellar. The rooms are pristine and comfortable and her breakfasts and dinners, absolutely amazing. It's been many years since I've tasted the wonderful cuisine of this area, and Ileana's was even better, from her homemade yogurt and local honey to fabulous meats and cheeses. And...

My husband, daughter, boyfriend and I stayed at the Guesthouse Ileana on July 19th, 2016. It was a wonderful authentic experience. Not only was the Guesthouse beautiful but we were treated to plum brandy made by the family. We were given a lot of history and absolutely loved our experience here. In fact, our biggest regret was that we didn't...

We were walk-ins after a long day of driving to get to Sapanta to see the Merry Cemetery. Ileana's was across the road with parking available in the drive-way. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. We spent the evening in front of a fireplace with other guests drinking schnapps and eating home made local food that Ileana had prepared,...

The guesthouse is run by a friendly extended family most of whom we met during our stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable but old fashioned. There were no other guests and we were encouraged to choose the rooms we wanted. There was also a sitting room for guests with a table, chairs, guidebooks etc. Before we left we were...

We had a lovely overnight stay here during a trip through Romania. Location is ideal since it is across the street from the Merry Cemetery. Bedroom was basic but very clean and certainly in line with the price point. However, the food and hosts were beyond all expectations. Breakfast and dinner were authentic, absolutely delicious, and among the best we...
