Where to Stay in Bran, Romania

Nestled in the hills of Bran, Transylvanian Inn offers cozy, but spacious rooms and unbeatable views. Travelers visiting Romania head to Bran to see infamous Bran Castle (aka Dracula’s Castle), which can be seen from many of the rooms at the inn and the restaurant’s balcony.

The inn has a modern cabin-like feel, with rich, wood trimmings and massive windows. For my money, the suite is the way to go, where you get your own Jacuzzi bathtub, balcony with views of the valley and castle and your own fireplace to cozy up to.

The full-service restaurant is more than just the view. They offer traditional Romanian dishes, as well as other European options for different palettes. And be sure to try their homemade Romanian liqueurs – brandies infused with local fruits.
Enjoy the (included) breakfast spread before heading to town. The hotel also offers to link you up to local tours. I highly recommend the fall season when you get incredible fall colors in the hills, but it isn’t too cold yet…
