The BEST hotels in Brasov, Romania – which one to choose

Brasov is one of the most charming cities in Europe and I’m not saying this just because it’s my hometown. I’ve traveled to 40 different countries across Europe, Asia, and Africa but Brasov will always have a place in my heart.

Brasov Tampa Mountain

Before telling you which is the best accommodation in Brasov, let’s talk about which are the best areas to look for a hotel or hostel.

1. Where to stay in Brasov – the best areas

Although Brasov is a relatively small city with only 270,000 residents, the city is divided by Tampa Mountain. The mountain is situated right in the middle of the city, separating the city into more areas.

Brasov map

For a better understanding of Brasov’s layout, I’ve created a map. The big green area is not a park. It is actually the Tampa Mountain.

If I could rate how good each of the location highlighted on my map is (according to proximity to Old City Center), I would put them in this order:

  • red circle – the best
  • purple & green circle
  • blue & black circle

Red Circle

The area inside the red circle is the Old City Center. This is the most popular area in Brasov, the place where you will find almost all the tourist attractions. As a tourist, the red circle is by far the best area where you can find a hotel.

The hotels inside the red circle are more expensive because they are close to the famous Black Church, Republicii Street, and many other attractions. Also, inside this area you will find many restaurants to choose from, serving both local and international dishes.

Green Circle

The big street inside the green circle, called Dobrogeanu Gherea Street crosses a small hill, offering some of the best views over the city. Here you will find many small boutique hotels.

Although this area is close to the city center, it is a bit quieter and relaxing. The Dobrogeanu Gherea Street is right near the Tampa Mountain which is great if you are into hiking.

To get to restaurants, you will have to walk for 5 minutes but all in all, the area inside the green circle is one of the best in Brasov. If you are in search of hotels in Brasov, I definitely recommend it.

Good to know: Dobrogeanu Gherea Street is quite steep. If you’re not a fan of a bit of exercise, I would avoid it.

Purple Circle

The purple circle is the area surrounding the Brasov Citadel. Staying here is a delight as you will walk on beautiful streets guarded by historical buildings with amazing architecture.

This area is a bit far from all the hustle and bustle of the city center but it’s still close enough to reach all the tourist attractions on foot. You will also be close to the Brasov Central Park or Nicolae Titulescu Park which is the perfect place to take a walk and relax.

Black Circle

The area inside the black circle is also called the New City Center. This is the business center of Brasov, the area where most of the companies in the city are located.

Although the New City Center is a bit far away from the Old City Center (you can take a bus or taxi), currently a huge shopping mall is being built right in this area. If you are a shopping addict, this might be the place for you.

Blue Circle

There are a few hotels inside the Blue Circle, also called the Astra Neighborhood but this area is mostly inhabited by locals. There are no tourist attractions here but if you want to explore Brasov’s local life, a visit to this area is a must.

There are many local markets, local shops and, apartment buildings. To get to the Old City Center from Astra Neighbourhood, you can take a taxi for about 8 RON or take the bus number 17, 5 or 31.
