We were in Sibiu in December in order to see the famous Christmas Market from Sibiu. I want to say that the hotel is very well placed, in center of the city with welcoming staff and nice rooms.

We stayed in Deluxe Double Room and we totally recommend it!

We are a family of four staying in Sibiu for Christmas Market. This hotel have perfect location, at the beginning of pedestrian zone, on walking distance to Old Town and surroundings. Many restaurants in the area.
We had a family room, which was more like a suite, with a room with a sofa and a room with double bed.
Very clean, very quiet, even it was facing the street, with a small balcony.
Kettle available in the room, minibar also. Wi-fi working and reliable.
Breakfast was excellent, with a large selection of warm or cold dishes, fruits, pastries, local cheese and other products.

One thing we didn’t liked so much was the bathroom, cut from the room with glass panels, without door, without almost any privacy. But it was spotless clean anyway, only a little strange.

We visited Sibiu primarily to visit the Christmas Market. Our friend did all the booking and a fantastic job she did. It was our first time in Romania as well. The previous reviews say it all really. The main niggles were the size of the duvet compared to the bed, the lack of storage, and the unusual glass panels forming the bathroom (although it did not bother us too much).

Otherwise a great hotel and very good value at the price we paid including breakfast. Very close to the centre and the Christmas market. some good restaurants around and food & drink were very reasonable.

On the plus side, it was very central, the staff were cheerful and helpful, and the room was warm and fairly comfortable. We reserved in advance and, for what we paid, it was amazing. We went for the Christmas Market which, although not large, was very pretty, as is Sibiu itself.

Hotel is a 10 min transfer from the airport and just a few minutes stroll down a pedestrianised street to the central square. Perfect!

We loved Sibiu and this hotel ticked all the boxes for us for a winter break to see some snow and the Christmas Market.

60 steps down from the Piaţa Mică, the quiet setting in an unassuming square has given the opportunity for an enterprising re-think of a very old house. Our room (4) was huge with two double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a big sitting area maintained to a high standard.

Everything you would expect from a good hotel, including breakfast. Corina was a great help organizing laundry and a taxi.

We were very pleased with everything at Artisans Boutique Villa. The welcome was excellent, the rooms were spacious and very comfortable. The location is excellent just a short walk from the main squares and the lower town.

The owners were extremely helpful with all requests and offered excellent guidance and recommendations.

Had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful hotel in the heart of old town Sibiu.
Distance from the hotel to the main squares and restaurants, cafes and sites is literally a stone’s throw. The rooms are massive, spacious and clean. Yes there is cheaper but the convenience, friendly staff and simple but satisfying breakfast makes this place a delightful stay.

We spoke with Alex and he genuinely wanted us to enjoy our stay and took time in fairly good English to explain some sites.

Only one minus would be parking, but call the hotel and they help to get you parked. Would definitely recommend.

The hotel is located in “Piata Mica” Square with a very beautiful view to “Turnul Sfatului” and “Podul Minciunilor”.
The breakfast is ok, not very various but fresh; the people from reception were very kind and nice.
Our room was fabulous, an apartment with 2 bedrooms, interested furnished.
The only minus: there were not enough towels, bathrobe and slippers for all persons and even if there were 2 TV sets, one in each bedroom, only one was working.
I recommend this hotel, especially during Christmas time, when city is full of lights.
Lovely stay in this convenient hotel located right beside the 2 main squares in the old town and close to one of the shopping streets.Lovely views onto Piata Mica from our room. Loads of eateries nearby and we enjoyed the Christmas Market close by. We were welcomed by fabulous staff who were very accommodating. The breakfast was suited to a variety of needs and the freshly cooked omelette was a really tasty way to start a day of sightseeing.
It’s a short taxi ride to the train station and the hotel looked up times of trains for us. Met lots of locals on the trip and felt really welcomed to their community. Appeared to be a safe city.
This is not a hotel for anyone with a mobility issue.
