As if concealing its identity, this alternative to the traditional hotel is identified by nothing other than a single brass sign at the entrance of a stately late-19th-century Austro-Hungarian building; it's on Apollonia Hirscher Street, just a short stroll from the historic center of town, but feels far away from it all. Opened in late 2005, the sober neoclassical facade conceals modern interiors; with just 12 large apartments, each with a lounge, bedroom, kitchen, and dining area, it really is a "residence" rather than a hotel. With parquet flooring, decent furniture, and relaxed, neutral tones, this is a great option for anyone who values space, peace, and quiet. At press time, there were no hotel amenities, just daily servicing of apartments, a full-time reception, and the option of breakfast at nearby Casa Hirscher. There are plans, though, to upgrade the residence to a hotel in 2009, which may, unfortunately, also drive prices up.

Great hotel in the historical center of Brasov
Amazing location, excellent service, and very friendly staff. Probably the best accommodation in Brasov.
