Looking for a special place in Braşov? The 250 years old house used to be the first bike shop in post-communist Braşov. With a bike hanging on its façade, it was well known by any biker. We loved it, got it, and restored it to save its charm.
Our “homemade home” is definitely one to remember. One of the few houses left untouched by the chaotic “development’’ in the past years, it shows the simple architecture of the typical Kronstadt Saxon house from the 18th century. On the outside we left it entirely as it was, but we played a lot in the inside creating 3 different apartments, each with its own style and charm entirely designed and manufactured by us so all places feels fresh and cozy and provide you with all the facilities you need.
Being 15 minutes’ walk away from the Old Center, it has the advantage of easy access, inner court yard, free parking, fresh market (2 minutes away), bus stop (2 minutes away).
It’s quiet, neat, with simple architecture, typical for Transylvania. Called Braşovechi (Old Braşov) in older times, it developed along the Lungă street, connecting the Kronstadt citadel to the St. Bartholomew’s village, built around the St. Bartolomeu Church, the oldest building in town.
Bus & taxi stop: 2 minutes
Regional bus hub: 5 minutes
Main train station: 35 minutes
Fresh market: 2 minutes

We are always happy to know our guests. So come on over! If you want, we can offer information about the town, activities, places to visit. We can arrange for tour guides, mountain guides, bike guides, ski and snowboard guides.

All 3 apartments face an inner yard with a coffee table and a barbecue.
