We stayed overnight here enroute to Maramures over Easter and absolutely loved it. The building has been wonderfully restored and the rooms are great with comfortable beds. The bleating goat in the neighbours yard was a surprising and amusing wake up call. The selection for breakfast was outstanding and we certainly had enough to keep us going for the day....

Our room was part of the Tailors Tower , had a special design to it and everything was so beautiful incorporated into the medieval atmosphere. It was such a wonderful surprise for me since my husband made the reservation and I didn't know anything about it. The location is perfect, you are in the city center and there was free...

A beautiful old house, renovated with much love, and full of marvellous and tasteful old furnishings and decorations. The host is a nice guy. Helpful, kind, reliable and very quick! The location in the old town is terrific!! I stayed there in cold and snowy February. The heating works fine, but made some noises every 20 or 30 minutes. No...

We were guests for one night only but we liked it very much. The top attraction from a tourists POV is that we slept on the actual wall of the medieval fortress (on a bed ofc). We slept where people long ago fought and defended this stronghold :) big plus for authentic experience. The breakfast was good and the landowner...

We booked this B&B through booking.com, where the rating is a whooping 9.6 and the photos show much larger rooms. Upon arrival I was impressed by the general cleanliness of the place and the friendliness of the man at reception. However, our room was so tiny one couldn't swing a cat :( The bay window made the room be even...

Dear special guests Yolanda and Mike Waters, dear friends, with respect and consideration, please receive our many dedicated greetings from the medieval small town of Sighisoara to London and Bucharest.

WOW! What a wonderful place! Look no further – this is the place to stay in Sighisoara! Built into the old city walls, just inside one of the two entrance gates into the citadel, this building oozes atmosphere and charm. Our room, the Junior Suite, was situated on the ground floor at the front of the building. Although at street...

This was a really attractive place to spend a couple of nights. The owner has done a great job in restoring a former building to create a lovely guest house which is actually built into the medieval city wall. The service was great and the owner is very helpful and friendly, and speaks excellent English. Owing to the old structure...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pension am Schneiderturm guesthouse is located in Transylvania, in the medieval town of Sighişoara, near the citadel's main access gate. This medieval house dates back to 1797 and, through construction and architectural style, it forms an integral part both of the Tailors' Tower and of the citadel's Wall. Traditionally restored, the guesthouse has four double bed rooms, one single bed room and an apartment, all of which are furnished with authentic pieces of furniture in massive wood and have their own private bathrooms, fully equipped. In case the tourists staying at the guesthouse would like to pay a two-wheeled visit to the tourist attractions near the medieval town, they will be able to do so, as the guesthouse offers them the possibility to use, free of charge, its high quality, modern and well-kept bikes. Breakfast is on the house and it consists of local food products, purchased from the farmers living in the villages close to Sighişoara. ... more   less
