Sleeping and spending and swimming in Sibiu:

Phespirit stayed at Hotel Roberts and can heartily recommend it. The location is perfect, good for the airport and a ten minute walk from the centre. The rooms are large, clean and modern, and the prices are low. The staff are reliable, and all very helpful.

On his first morning, Phespirit converted his Sterling to Romanian Lei at the Strada General Gheorghe Magheru branch of the Banca Transilvania. Like everyone else he met, the young woman behind the counter spoiled him with her perfect spoken English.

And on Saturday evening Phespirit went for a swim at the Neptun Bath Complex, which was first opened in 1904. Its glazed bricks, brass fittings and wooden cubicles made a change from the tiles, chrome and plastics that characterise modern complexes.
