Three stars

Casa Wagner

Web info: Everything the hotel does is centered around the guest’ experience, ensuring comfort and relaxation.

Leif’s take: This 32-room beauty on the main square inside the citadel has a mix of rooms; some doubles are a bit cramped, but others sprawl, with extras like classic fixtures, armoires, chests and antique benches. Room 11 has a small balcony with nice views. There’s a back terrace and wine cellar that opens after 7pm or so. The ground-floor restaurant is quite good, often with live music in the evenings.

Sighisoara Hotel

Web info: Whether on business or holiday, each of the 36 rooms at this 3-star property are designed help guests relax in comfort and style. Convenient location, a dedicated staff and first-rate facilities make this hotel a favorite among travelers.

Leif’s take: Tour groups seem to gravitate to this fine 29-room hotel with arched ceilings over cranberry carpets in faintly historic, mostly modern rooms. The basement wine cellar is a cavernous hang-out spot, as is the back courtyard terrace and beauty salon.

Two stars

Rex Hotel

Web info: Rex Hotel is located in the heart of Sighisoara, making it a popular choice for both business and leisure travelers. There are 28 rooms in this 4-story hotel, all equipped with the most up-to-date amenities. Television are among the amenities guests will find in every room. For the comfort and convenience of guests, you’ll also find room service 24hr, restaurant, tours on-site. Gym/fitness facilities are on-site for guests’ enjoyment.

Hostels

Burg Hostel

Web info: The hostel, located in the centre of the citadel, is made up of a set of 17th century buildings and can host up to 60 guests in 16 comfortable rooms. It provides ideal accommodation for school classes and students as well as solo travellers and families. A seminar room and recreation room are available for use at no charge. Our kitchen offers both local and international specialities. Our Culture Pub has an extensive drink selection as well as DSL and wireless Internet. We offer a 10% discount for youth hostel members.

Leif’s take: With a basement lounge (rock music, internet) and restaurant onsite, this very clean, slightly sterile hostel has nice dorm rooms of various bed counts – all with their own private bathroom.

Gia Hostel

Web info: Why should you choose Gia? First of all because of the price, then for its position in town, thirdly for the comfort and different services.

Leif’s take: Backing the railway line (about a 15-minute walk to the citadel), these rooms recently enjoyed a complete and thoughtful redecoration. There’s lots of good services: an hour’s free internet on their PC (as well as free wi-fi) and kitchen/grill access.

Etc.

Casa Saseasca
Tel: +40 (0) 0265 772 400
Piata Cetatii 12
Leif’s Take: This is a great value place considering its location right on Piata Cetatii. The spartan rooms have painted wood furniture, TVs,  decent beds and wi-fi. There’s no breakfast, but they have a cafe on site, with an inner courtyard providing escape when the crowds get too big.

Bed and Breakfast Kula
Tel. +40 (0) 265 777 907
Str Tamplarilor 40
Leif’s take:
Those looking for a homey budget base in the citadel will enjoy this place, a 400-year-old home run by an English-speaking family who can help arrange Saxon Land church trips, rent out bikes and sit with you at the family table in the big kitchen. There are four rooms, plus a gorgeously renovated apartment in a nearby 500 year old house. The main house has a vine-filled backyard with views to the hills northwest.

Pensiune Cristina and Pavel
Tel. +40 (0) 744 119 211
Str Cojocarilor 1
Leif’s take:
Another inviting budget option in this quiet corner of the citadel is this home with four simple rooms and one dorm. They do laundry, arrange trips to Fagaras Biertan and other Saxon villages and rent bikes. There’s a self-cater kitchen available.
