I am French, living in Croatia.
I came to Brasov with my Croatian,girlfriend, her son, three couples of friends plus three children as I personally knew the country and considered Brasov as the perfect starting point to have a first discovery of Romania, with excursions to Sinaia and its King's Palace, to the German fortified churches around Brasov, to other cities and monuments, and the possibilty to make nice walks in the surrounding mountains. My friends all had various a priori about Romania, regarding quality of the infrastructures or the quality of service, and the only way I had to convince and satisfy them was to find an accomodation meeting their high standards in terms of quietness, cleanliness, safery, comfort. Another important point was to find something located downtown Brasov, at walking distances of restaurants, cafés, so we could let our cars parked at the end of the day and go out for dinner or a drink without using them again.
What decided me for Apartment Mara (and for Villa Arina) ? The fact the two flats were in the same building, and moreover the existence of a communication door between them, a door our host let unlocked during our stay so we could easily pass from a flat to the other one without using the main entrances. Very convenient, especially on the day and night of rain we experienced during our stay.
Apartment Mara is nicely decorated, very well equipped, and everything was new, in mint condition and clean. Wifi worked perfectly.
We spent a very good time in Brasov. I want to point out more particularly our host's total dedication to his guests. That positively surprised even our most demanding friends who left Brasov and Romania having abandoned all their a priori.
