We had booked Leonard's apartment for a month, but just before we arrived he let us know that he was having a problem with the previous guest not leaving. We showed up in Brasov and the guest had still not left, so Leonard put us up in a nice hotel for the night so he could take care of the problem guest.
Once the previous guest finally left, Leonard picked us up at the hotel and took us to the apartment. After seeing the apartment we could see why the previous guest did not want to leave. While the outside of the building and hallways look very dated, Leonard's apartment is very modern and offers a great view of the mountains.
Our one month stay in the apartment was great. The high speed internet, huge flatscreen TV, comfortable bed, and nice view made our stay very comfortable.
There are two well stocked supermarkets just a 5-minute walk away, as well as pharmacies, bakeries, and other shops.
The only downside to the apartment is that it is a 30 minute walk to the town center, but a taxi ride is cheap at less than 6 Lei ($2 USD) each way.
We were quite a bit late getting to the apartment since we had to take our son to the hospital. Leo was very understanding and made sure that we had everything we needed. He even let us borrow a cell phone during our stay so that we could make local calls. We were also delighted to find a bottle of wine waiting for us. There were several bus stops that took us to the old town of brasov that were really nearby, so it was really well communicated.
A very lovely couple who even picked us up from the railway station and an excellent apartment with everything you need. So nice to find a fully equiped kitchen at my disposal.
Everything was perfect but for the location just a little bit out of the way (though the local buses are handy and regular).
We would absolutely recommend a stay here in beautiful Brasov
