Hotel Binder Bubi Sighisoara
A 4* hotel in the heart of the medieval city.
Its owners have also the same hotel in Medias (Binder Bubi) and also hotel Traube in Medias too. All of them are different by the style and the furnishing they have. What is similar is the old fashioned style accessories.
Big rooms, kind staff, delicious food - all there are characteristics of the hotel.
Of course there is Wi-Fi but if you don't have computer you can also use one in the lobby.
The hotel is surrounded by great architecture houses and lots of flowers!

Hi guys, is there an over-night bus from Sighisoara to Bucahrest? If not which other place is good to see in the area on my way back to Bucharest. On my way there I will be stopping at Brasov and Bran so it will be nice to see something else on way back. Thanks for your help
Re: over-night bus
The view of Sighisoara is very spectacular. You shouldn't miss it.I liked also Medias and Sibiu and Tirgu Mures.
My perosnal ranking order is 1.Sibiu,2.Medias- only its old center (as less touristy)3.Sighisoara 4. Tirgu Mures and far far away 5.Bucharest (at my first glance- as I passed this city by car at the night)- to much influenced by post war history means it's charm was destroyed by Caucescu like Republica Palace monster.
Re: over-night bus
According to autogari.ro (Romanian bus timetable site) the last bus leaves from Sighisoara at 8.15PM and arrives in Bucharest at 1.49AM, which doesn't seem very convenient (and besides I'm not sure if those schedules are too exact).
There are also two night trains, leaving from Sighisoara at 0.39AM and 1.41AM to arrive in Bucharest at 5.42AM and respectively at 6.44AM; see more about timetables on http://infofer.ro/
If you wont use any of these to get back directly to Bucharest, I agree that the best place to stop in and visit on the way back would be Sibiu, even though it's not on the most direct route to Bucharest.
Travel Tips for Sighisoara
The Streets and Houses of the Citadel
One of the things that I liked the most in Sighisoara was to walk the long and narrow cobbled streets lined with faded pink, green, and ocher houses. Each house deserves a look as each one of them is different than the others and has something worth seeing. Some look like simple craftmen's houses while others look like houses that belonged to the rich. Since the citadel is still inhabited is interesting to see how life goes on within its walls. Everybody goes about their business as they did centuries ago. And if you happen to find yourself alone on one of the streets, with no car or other sign of the modern world around, you'll start to feel as you've suddenly woke up in the 16th century.
Around the citadel walls are the towers that the guilds erected during the 14th to 16th centuries to protect the town from Turkish raids. Each tower was built by one of the guilds and bears the name of the guild. 14 towers were erected but only 9 are still standing. I walked around the perimeter of the citadel and was able to spot The Rope Makers' Tower (Turnul Franghierilor), The Taylors' Tower (Turnul Croitorilor), The Showmakers' Tower (Turnul Cizmarilor), The Butchers' Tower (Turnul Macelarilor), The Furriers' Tower (Turnul Cojocarilor), The Tinkers' Tower (Turnul Cositorarilor), The Tanners' Tower (Turnul Tabacarilor) and The Blacksmiths' Tower (Turnul Fierarilor). The ninth tower still standing is the Clock Tower itself.
A general sight from the city... this place could be impossible to look for it again ....my british friend took us ( me and Eddie the canadian ) among th ejungle, the trees looking for a natural canyon ..a rare canyon and so so disapointed when we saw it..and the way back he was the guide and took us to this vantage point where it were a restaurant and a leisure place
The beer was extremely cheap for a hottie day like it was !!
Landscapes from Cluj to Sighisoara
One feature that define mostly towns is sth i'd never seen before.. the graveyards are always on the top of the town over a hill meanwhile the town and its life is on the plain... so different to Spain where all is in the same level...mostly of it
see the fortified churches in the area
When we were in Sighisoara in july 2007 we tried to go to the saxon villages in the area. We found out it's hard to find any transportation or guides going there. In the end the people from the Cultural Heritage Information Centre told us about a small company, organising daytrips to several villages in the area. We phoned them, and they picked us up with a big Romanian 4 wheeldrive. On a great 7 hours tour the Dutch guides surprised us with their knowledge of the area. We visited several forgotten fortified churches and Biertan, went to a farm and had a picknick far away in the hills. It's simply surprising how beautiful and interesting the countryside and the villages a little out of Sighisoara are! We had a great day, and I advice you guys to see this area as well! The company is called eyetours, check it out!
