I share my apartment with those who want to visit Brasov and do not want to spend too much for accommodation
I can say enough good about Ioan (by the way, his name is pronounced "iown", not "Loan"). His place is modest, but perfectly comfortable and very quiet at night. An easy bus ride to central Brasov. Most important is that Ioan was a great host and volunteered to drive me several places. A really nice guy.
Ioan was a generous host. He met us at the train station and helped with local transportation. The apartment is small but the room is clean and cozy. He is a host that wants to spend time with his guests and be a guide for the city. My friend and I are very independent travelers so we did not spend as much time socializing with Ioan as he may have liked but we did enjoy our stay. Thanks for your hospitality Ioan.
Ioan is as good as it gets. A perfect host, a great conversationalist and he goes out of his way to be helpful. He picked me up, showed around, and (hold your breath) went all the way from Brasov to Sibiu in his car to drop me off while showing me wonderful sites and the projects he is working on as an architect. We also went hiking as well as to the ski resort. As I said, Ioan is as good as it gets. He is also fun to be with. Highly recommended.
Ioen was an excellent host – he picked me up at the bus station and gave me a tour around the city. He also introduced me to his friends. We also made a few excursions together which was really nice. Ioen has a car and never asks for money for fuel, but I just gave it to him and suggest anyone who stays with him pay for gas-- he is so generous. Also he made arrangements for me to meet his sister and niece in Bucharest. His niece picked me up at the train station. Ioen's apartment is very simple, but like others have said the reason to stay at Ioen's is his 5 star service.
