Found UpperHouse because we were looking for accommodation with a view. Got a Queen Suite with balcony overlooking the town. Everything was top; very clean and good breakfast options.
This boutique hotel is lovely, spacious and modern bathoom and bedroom. Was very impressed with the standard. Couple of downfalls which is why i haven't given this hotel 5 stars, the room temperature was set and unable to be changed at 26 degrees which is impossible to sleep in, the bed we had was very hard which would have been ok if there was decent pillows but the pillows were tiny and completely flat as soon as your head touched them. Which is a shame as this was such a nice boutique property & great value for money.
Great location, 6-7 minute walk to the main square in the old town and the black church.
The apartment was very clean, with two large rooms (bedroom and front room with sofa/sofabed) and a bathroom in between, the bedroom had a 60'' TV with cable TV, Netflix and Amazon prime and another TV in the other room. King size bed which was very comfortable, wardrobes, mini fridge with payable drinks and snacks. The apartment was both modern, smart and stylish, and cleaned daily.
The cooked breakfast was lovely, home cooked with a good choice and presented nicely. Tea, Coffee, OJ available as well as a selection of fruit, cakes and cereal.
All the staff were really friendly and welcoming, spoke English, and couldn't have been more helpful.
We will be staying again - thanks again UpperHouse for making our stay a very enjoyable one.
Others have said that this is difficult to find but if you are arriving by car it is just below the Brasov sign on the hill/mountain. We chose it because it has reserved parking in front of the hotel which is within 10 minutes walk from the main square and other sights. It is also a pleasant walk through a park to the cable car. It is quiet, the rooms are spacious and well furnished. We were in the older of the two building but had had a lovely, comfortable room. The staff are SO nice and helpful as is the owner. Breakfast was amazing - not the usual buffet but cooked to order and served in a very modern, bistro style. There are plans to open this very trendy breakfast room as a restaurant. View over Brasov and the Black Church is a bonus.
We picked Upper House because of the parking and location. Our room was in the building that did not have air conditioning. If I had to do it all over again, I would have chosen a room with air conditioning. While it cooled off later at night, the mosquitoes were bad. I have several bites on my legs. So just be aware of that issue. I think the hotel could put an oscillating fan in the bedroom to help with both issues.
Also there are a very steep set of concrete stairs to get to either Room 1 or Room 2 and again just be aware.
Staff were very friendly and the breakfast was wonderful! You ordered from a menu of several items and the food was delicious.
Room was large with a seating area that had a TV and then there was the bedroom also with a TV. There was a kettle for hot water and coffee; however, no coffee cups were provided. We had glasses for water. Luckily we brought with us our collapsible coffee cups. There was instant coffee but nothing to stir the coffee with so we used the packages it came in. Complimentary bottle of water was provided. There was a mini bar with colas too.
Bathroom was nice and the shower was very good.
Short (10 min) walk to old town and the Black Church.
Some minor improvements such as referenced above and this hotel would be outstanding! I would definitely recommend this hotel but just noting the above information.
