Welcome to our 16th century house, one of the oldest in town ! You'll have the chance to spend your holiday in a typical Transylvanian house which is also a certified historical monument.
Every major attraction is a few steps away, you can see the Black Church through the window, so close you can almost touch it :)
Shops, cafes and restaurants are all around.
The apartment has been renovated recently, so it's cozy and equipped with everything you may need for a comfortable, relaxing vacation.
The apartment is composed of two rooms. One is strictly a bedroom, while the other also contains a small kitchenette, equipped with espresso machine, electric burner and microwave oven. There's also a fridge in the hallway.
The space is ideal for groups of four, but it can accommodate up to 6 people if some don't mind sleeping on couches :) It has everything you need for a comfortable stay.
The house is in a shared courtyard. The windows are facing the street, but they block out the noise very well.
If you arrive with a small child we can provide, for free, a baby crib. Just ask us ;-)
It's all yours ! The entrance is through a common corridor, shared by two other apartments in the building. The apartment is on the second floor and yes, there are stairs (15 steps) but no elevator since it's a historical house.
We don't live there, but we're half an hour away. We'll be happy to help you with anything - information, arrange transport, you name it.
IMPORTANT PARKING INFORMATION (if you come by car):
It's hard and inconvenient to pay for parking in Brasov.
There are two options:
1. Public parking
You can park anywhere in the city center, after you pay for either 1 hour or 1 day (which doesn't mean 24 hours - it means until 8 a.m. the next day). During this time, you can move the car to any other parking spot without paying extra.
Parking is free between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. (Mon-Sat) and all day Sundays.
There are two ways to pay for public parking, both of which are very inconvenient for tourists (but we can help, see below):
1.1. Make sure you have a lot of 50 bani coins, then find a payment machine and pay 1.5 lei (3 coins) for 1 hour or 12 lei (24 coins !) for one day.
1.2. Get a Romania SIM card from Vodafone, Telekom or Orange and send an SMS to 7420, with the text "341 license plate number" for 1 hour, or "342 license plate number" for 1 day. So, for example, if your car has BV10XYZ on the license plate, you'll send:
to 7420 for 1 hour of parking.
Of course, this method won't work if you have a foreign phone number. Paying through SMS is also slightly more expensive than through a payment machine (0.5 EUR for 1 hour, 3.2 EUR for 1 day).
2. Private parking (right across the street)
It's more expensive (3 lei/hour regardless of duration), but more convenient because you're almost guaranteed to find an empty spot and a cashier.
If you really want to use the public parking, we can pay it for you in exchange for 3.2 EUR cash per day, which is the actual parking rate for SMS. We'll need the number on the license plate and the cash in advance.
- Please keep quiet after 10 p.m.
- No shoes in the house (we provide plenty of slippers :)
- No smoking in the house!
We are a friendly couple from Brașov, Romania.
I (Sorin) am a computer programmer and occasional home brewer. I love technology and really enjoy building stuff - in fact, some of the furniture in our apartment is made by me :)
Anca is an artist and designer. She designed everything around the house. She also loves to make things - especially textile items and jewelry.
We're both avid travelers and love the way AirBnB lets you live the "local life". See you on the next adventure!
