Up a steep hill overlooking Brasov lies Viron Pension, quite a climb with a backpack but good fun going down! I found Viron Pension on the internet and decided to stay there with my fiance a few years back, several rooms in a large Romanian chalet with a breathtaking view of the city and nearby mountains, a pleasant garden and a shared kitchen.
I like a soft bed, so the beds were comfortable for me but might not be for those who like a hard bed. Overall I found the place comfortable, even if it was a bit basic. The showers were warm and the only thing that let the place down was a visit from a local brigade of mice.
Personally, I quite like mice but couldn't eat a whole one. My girlfriends attitude was quite different though, when one rustled around in a waste paper bin while she was on the loo, she shot out like a ghost had come out of the toilet! I found this amusing but soon changed my tune or faced coventry for the rest of the trip! I also found a dead one on the floor by my bed in the morning, poor little blighter! It did look as though the patron was trying to do something about it! When we were leaving, we also met one in the kitchen, so I don't know if the Biker Mice from Mars had actually checked in or it was just a local gang!
The room was ok, the view was good, the facilities basic and the location was ok if you're training to climb Mount Everest! They may have got over their bout of rodents by now!
