The 74-room hotel, which marks Hilton Worldwide’s sixth property in Romania, is situated in the 16th century medieval town of Sighisoara in the famous Transylvania region. Sighisoara itself is a World Heritage site thanks to its ancient citadel, landmark clock tower and the iconic Bran Castle, which was once the home of Vlad the Impaler and was the inspiration for Bram Stocker’s Dracula tales.
