We were absolutely amazed when we arrived at this beautiful guesthouse overlooking Bran Castle and the snow capped Bucegi mountains. We felt more like we'd booked a holiday cottage than a b+b. Even though we arrived later than expected, John was waiting to greet us and spent time to give us a very welcoming tour of the house inviting us...

Positive points: good location, the wi-fi works well, clean rooms, big lounge, big yard with a playground for kids Negative points: i think that this is more a 3* villa: small and ugly bathroom, dirty blankets in the cupboards with hair on them, no slippers, the breakfast was not great (continental, with nothing hot), no one at the reception (...

Stayed here for two nights during our Romania trip, definitely were not disappointed. Our room overlooked the castle and it was only a five minute walk away. The breakfast was delicious and John was extremely helpful, providing excellent tips for the continuation of our journey. I wish them every success as they prepare to open a second Guesthouse and can...

Definitely go there if you want a cozy, warm, wonderful place to sleep. The owner is very, very kind and the view from the terrace and from some of the rooms is worth it! For breakfast there was a large range of cheese and salami, and then eggs, marmelade, juice, coffee, tea, etc.

Rooms are comfortable, immaculately clean, modern. I very much liked the bathroom amenities as I didn't expect to have all those little bottles (like they have in hotels). The only con was that I was able to hear people walking up and down the corridor but this didn't last long and I was able to get great night sleep. The...

I have been to Bran 4 times and my first time to stay here. The house is quiet, clean and very accommodating. Iona is a wonderful host. Views of the castle and walking distance to great restaurants. They have single rooms, doubles and we stayed in a triple. They will make you breakfast for a small charge.
