Romania Family Run Homestay: Casa Terezia in Transylvania Romania


My journey traveling through Romania continued as I finally hit Brasov. Homestays in Tiraspol, traditional hotels in Bucharest, swanky hotels in Windsor and an old English Inn in London had been my recent beds for the night on my travels and then I decided to head to Dracula country – Transylvania.

I wanted to stay in somewhere quiet, relaxing and tranquil and I came across an excellent family run place called Casa Terezia in the picturesque city of Brasov, a gem of a city.

Casa Terezia is situated in a courtyard off Strada Nicolae Balcescu in the heart of Brasov’s World Heritage listed Old City. Casa Terezia is Terezia’s House and this family run place is welcoming, friendly and relaxed. Terezia has a heart for her guests and will be able to help out with everything you need – maps, tips, bus routes, ideas and anything you need to know.

Casa Terezia is in a quiet courtyard off the main street. There is zero noise at night, no distractions and even better – there are just 3 rooms here. This makes it cosy, safe and compact.


Brasov has so many sights to see that the best place to stay is in the Old Town. Casa Terezia is great because it’s in the Old Town, and is a few minutes walk from the Black Church, Piata Sfatului, the Cable Car to Mount Tampa and the city walls. Everything you need is close by – supermarket, bars, restaurants, bus stops and souvenir shops.

Sometimes family run Guesthouses have sceptical or non-existent Wi-Fi. Casa Terezia has fast in-room wi-fi, mainly because it’s so compact and small and with just 3 rooms here, the possibility of lots of users at the same time just won’t happen.

Also as a bonus, free tea and coffee and Terezia was so kind as to provide me with fresh local pastries in the morning too!


So when you go head to Brasov, which you should as it’s a great city, head to Casa Terezia and you’ll love it.
