The best hotels put you close to the old-world action, bringing this Romanian city’s colourful past – this is the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler, after all – right to your doorstep.

Built in 1897 and once the home of Sighișoara-born businessman Josef B. Teusch, the Hotel Central Park underwent a lengthy transformation into what is now a boutique hotel. Many of the rooms are designed with nods to the history of the building, including exposed beams and bare stone. There’s a regal flair with some including velvet bed canopies. Downstairs, the buzzy restaurant features a popular beer terrace in the summer months.

First built in 1520, the Hotel Sighișoara has had a long, rich history. It survived the great fire of 1676, which saw much of the citadel burnt to the ground, going on to become the home of Saxon Bishop George Paul Binder and eventually being used as the City Hall. Now a luxury hotel, the redesign has retained much of the eclectic character of the building’s past. Fresh flowers in the rooms, an on-site spa and fine dining restaurant add a luxurious touch.
