We did not meet Anu personally but our contact via e-mails and SMS was very good! Anu provided all needed information in details. Also during our stay she took "virtual" care about our comfort. I can not give any review about guesthouse LaDespani because we stayed in Daniel's parents house (as guesthouse was full). So - our marks go to that house! But as hosts - this family is very kind and hospitable. Recommend!
My extended family and I (11 people including 5 kids) traveled around Romania and stayed at Guesthouse LaDespani for four nights. We had a lovely time at their wonderful place. It was the perfect choice for exploring Brasov and the surrounding areas. Anu and Daniel were able to comfortably accommodate all of us, the place is very clean and spacious, the hosts very welcoming and helpful with local information, our kids had a great time playing in the pool, the trampoline, garden and playing with their two sons. And on top of it a great location. All around a very pleasant experience.
Thank You for such a nice review. It was a real pleasure having You over! You really have a BEAUTIFUL family! And I am sure one day we will hear something about the young talented biologist! I really enjoyed the evenings chatting with You all. All the best for You all and maybe one day we will meet again. The world is not so big after all.
The rooms are very very nice and the warm welcome is even nicer :) . Very recommended stay!!!
LaDespani was awesome! I would recommend this place to anyone traveling through Brasov. The hosts Anu and Daniel were incredibly nice and accommodating to us, and gave us a bunch of information on things to see while we were in town. They were so nice that Daniel even BBQ'd some delicious Romanian cuisine for us, and they invited us to use their Sauna which was awesome! This place is a hidden gem!
