Daniel Castle Hotel – stay in a 17th century romanian castle

„Daniel Castle” Hotel is a wonderful place with a special story! Time stood still here, the paintings on the walls are still there, even if 10 years ago this place was an abandoned ruin!
The „Daniel Castle” was built in Covasna in the 17th Century. Unfortunately, over the years, the place was used as a granary and eventually abandoned. If you ever get to Covasna, you should definitely check out Hotel „Daniel Castle”! Pro Tip: it’s just a one-hour drive from Brasov, and the area is full of hidden gems.

If you’re wondering how an abandoned building got to be a beautiful hotel, I’ll tell you the story!

Lilla and Attila Racz were saving money to buy an apartment. The hard-working couple had dreams of owning their own place in Bucharest, but they found this old building and decided to buy it!
 
They spent a lot of money buying it, but even more restoring it. Of course it was a though and expensive challenge so they had to access some European funds.
 
When I was there, I had the pleasure of staying in Constantinople Room, one of the finest in the hotel! The walls still have on them the original paintings from the 17th Century, which withstood the test of time. The room is separated from the bathroom only by a simple curtain, so I was very careful when I took a shower, I didn’t want to be the one who destroys a 300 year old painting :). But I didn’t ruin it, it’s still there and guests can still admire it!
