“Cozy, quiet, comfortable and safe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

I will return to this place with my parents after having brought my wife and kids for and very pleasant stay. I will also be recommending this place to other friends for its value, location, peaceful inner hof and picturesque outside dining area with antiques and folk art decorating the perimeter. The roses which run up the sides of the 75 ft long wall will be stunning once they are blooming. Our room was nice and clean with a tidy bathroon although my lower bunk bed creaked a bit. The owner, Ela, was surprisingly very fluent in German and English and very warm and welcoming. Very important as a first impression for the guests. Easy and safe access to the accommodation. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the upper rooms if they have not been taken as the view will be great. Try to phone a...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

We spent 3 nights at Pensinuea Ela in Sibiu this April while visiting Romania. The owner, Ela, is an absolutely wonderful, welcoming person. She greeted us with hugs and great advice about places to visit. There is breakfast (bread, jelly, meats, yogurt) available for 5 euro extra a day- which is nice. We enjoyed getting to meet other people staying at the Villa. They have two nice outdoor gazebos to eat, drink, hang out in as well as a spacious backyard. It is centrally located about 5 minutes walking from Old Town Sibiu. The location was great and the people were wonderful! The rooms are not extravagant but do just fine. I would stay there again. Felt like home!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2010

My husband and I wandered over to Pensiunea Ela unannounced at about 8 at night while on honeymoon. Despite looking very confused when we rang the bell, the owners quickly led us around their pension and set us up with a room.

The room was comfortable and impeccably clean, with a nice, en-suite bathroom (with a decent shower). The bed, though simple, was very comfortable. There were English-language TV channels available on the TV.

The best part about this very cozy pension is the owners. Ela is fantastically nice and helpful, and is very happy to chat away with her guests. The pension's dog, Lassie, is sweet (though a little mouthy--he definitely made a move for my hand once or twice) and low-key. Breakfast is very simple--not, perhaps, worth the money but certainly very convenient for the low-maintenance traveler.

Also, this pension is very centrally located in a local's kind of neighbourhood. It is not surrounded by other pensions and hotels, and is a great place to stay if you want to get a sense of real life in Sibiu. It is also only a quick walk (five minutes) from the medieval centre, which makes it perfectly located for sightseeing and nightlife.

We had a great time here and would stay here again.

This friendly pension is for travelers who prefer authentic home comfort rather than sterile, generic chain hotel rooms. Very clean, cozy rooms. Pleasant colors and rose bushes in summer. Garden area for reading, writing, relaxing. Good Romanian breakfast. The pension is in a historic neighborhood that is a nice 7 minute walk from the main squares.
