“A gem of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2012

This wonderful old baroque hotel is on the pedestrian street. How to find the parking area and how to get on to the pedestrian street is complicated. Our suggestion is to get excellent directions ahead of time. Our room was very spacious. In fact, it was really a suite with a living room and the bedroom off it. The bathroom is so teeny, tiny that it is the smallest we have seen except for a cruise ship. But, it did have a tub! There are no bell boys to assist with luggage. Breakfast was very good and the staff were lovely.

The hotel was good looking from outside, old building, historical, nice. The interior was also old fashion (nice, I mean); But pretty old furniture (not only the style); My room (double, with regime single) was very small, but my friends' room (also double) was spacy enough. Staff was nice enough. Breakfast was not satisfactory at all - a lot of fried stuff..., less fresh food.

The best thing about the Imparatul is its central location in Sibiu. We had a very large room which was good. However, it was a bit worn and the mattress was too soft. There was an extremely large jacuzzi in the bathroom which made things seem more cramped than they were.The biggest negative was the overwhelming smell of cigarettes as smoking is allowed in all rooms and common areas.

The rooms are very nice and the spa is wonderful. The negative things are that smoking is allowed in all rooms including the hallways and common areas. The breakfast is of low quality. There should be an alternative to stay at the hotel without the breaksfast because Sibiu has a lot of nice things to serve.

After one day in this beautiful hotel 1' away of the gorgeous piazza, we felt like home!
We were given a room with a staircase, which is an ingenious trick to give one the impression of being in an appartment. It had a separate sleeping area and another one for cooling down in a setting decorated with style (watch tv, have a drink etc).
The staff was extremely kind, smiling and helpful.
It is a great choice for anyone wanting to experience what living in the center of a unique town like Sibiu is! That Balcescu street never sleeps, with people wandering about, playing music or just enjoying one of the many pastry temptations likely to haunt you after your departure from Transylvania.

It must however be said that after one breakfast at the hotel and the mandatory pictures of the impressive restaurant, you are done with it. Two main reasons: the repetitive Julio Iglesias music and the always-the-same choice on the menu.
Also, as elsewhere in Romania, it is perfectly OK to smoke in the hotel, so it could be bothersome to be exposed to smoke, even in the bathroom.. But otherwise, it is worth going at least for 1 night in this hotel. Do not forget to bring your swimswear for the elegant spa! Learn from our oblivion! :)
