"Stay with the locals" Sighisoara Tip by rambling_rose

Sighisoara, Sighisoara: 208 reviews and 5 photos

Having found this place on Virtual Tourist, how could I not sing its praises! Marius Adam has built 4 rooms next to his house, with a bathroom on each floor (he's got plans to build en suite bathrooms, so watch this space!). There's also an apartment in a separate building, even closer to Piata Cetatii, which he will be doing up soon. We shared a room for 3 and paid 28 Euros total per night.

It was soooo much better to be staying somewhere quiet where you could come and go as you pleased, without hordes of school groups (who tend to fill up the hostals at this time of year - December). Marius went out of his way to make up comfortable and even invited us around to share some tuica, the local paint-stripper masquerading as an alcoholic drink.

Even better, we had warm fuzzy feeling that we were contributing to the local people's endeavours to make the town's tourism their own. Or maybe it wa the tuica...
