Jaw-dropping architectural gems await guests who opt for a visit to the beautiful city of Sibiu in central Romania. Located in the evocative region of Transylvania - with its spectacular scenery - the city is a popular destination for international travelers. The Germanic architecture of Sibiu’s Old Town makes it a great destination for romantic city breaks, while the Brukenthal Palace - which today operates as an impressive museum - the evocative Bridge of Lies, and the 13th century Council Tower with its public viewpoint, will all appeal to fans of old world culture. Throw in the vibrant restaurant scene and you’ve got a city with the potential to create some truly special memories. And these top Airbnb vacation rentals will put you right in the heart of the action. Scroll down to learn more.
Memorable accommodation options don’t come much more highly-rated than this historic gem right in the beautiful heart of the Old Town. Featuring plenty of period touches - such as exposed wooden beams - and stylish furniture, it’ll make for a great base for those eyeing a romantic city break. Better yet though, the additional sofa bed means the property will also appeal to families or small groups of friends. Amenities include a fully-equipped kitchen - should you prefer to dine in rather than sample the cuisines at local restaurants - free wi-fi for planning your daily itinerary and a cozy indoor fireplace. Past guests adored the property, giving it top marks in all categories, praising the “fabulous” location and the chance to “really soak up” the city’s history and atmosphere.

Speaking of charming accommodation, this one-bedroom flat is another great option for couples looking to stay in the Old Town. Beautifully decorated and owned by the same host as the previous entry, this Airbnb option is located in the same area of the historic core, and it sits just 100 meters (330ft) from the likes of the main squares and the Bridge of Lies. Naturally, its location also means it is handy for all manner of local eateries and bars, but it also comes with a fully-equipped kitchen if a romantic meal back at your accommodation sounds appealing. The addition of a sofa bed means small families or groups of friends may also wish to consider this as a base. Other amenities include wi-fi access and cable TV.

A great option for couples or solo travelers on a budget, this low-priced studio flat will put you right in the middle of the city’s beating heart. This small, but equipped flat is situated on the main tree-lined street in the Old Town, which means you’ll be out and about exploring the area’s historic charms the second you set foot outside. Naturally, this means that those looking for a quieter accommodation option may wish to look elsewhere, but former guests were suitably impressed with the location, giving it top marks, as well as praising the view from the window and the low price. Amenities include wi-fi access and a microwave, but the lack of a fully-equipped kitchen should pose few issues, given the position close to so many local eateries.
