What is the best way to travel from Bucharest Romania to Sibiu Romania (won't have a car)? Hotels? Any info?
I am also interested in real accounts of Sibiu and Bucharest accomodations and restaurants. I am going on a mission trip but will have some time on my own. I last visited Sibiu in 1994 and my info is long outdated.

For the travel part: the fastest way would be by plane - nowadays several companies have flights between Bucharest and Sibiu at very convenient prices.
If you want to travel by train I'd suggest getting a couchette on the 625 Rapid train that leaves from Bucharest's Gara de Nord station at 11.50 PM and reaches Sibiu at 05.12 AM.
You can also catch a bus from Militari bus terminal - it's a 5-6 hours drive to Sibiu.
DO NOT TRAVEL BY MINIBUS (VAN).
As for Sibiu, it was appointed the 2007 European Capital of Culture, so you won't have trouble finding decent accommodations and stuff.Source(s): Flying to Sibiu: even the Romanian state carrier TAROM has (or had) a special offer on flights to Sibiu (38 Euros return ticket): http://www.tarom.ro/spec_help/spec_offers/romania.... ...but there are several other low cost companies also operating this route.

Best in comfort and safety - the train from Gara de Nord (Bucuresti Nord - the north station) at 1st class:
1) R 825 Bucuresti Nord - Sibiu Start:06:30 End 11:30
2) A 1621 Bucuresti Nord - Sibiu Start 09:38 End 15:28
3) R 827 Bucuresti Nord - Sibiu Start 15:30 End 20:27
4) R 625 Bucuresti Nord - Sibiu Start 23:50 End 05:12
R is faster and expensive than A
1 tichet, 1st class - R = around 25 euro
1 tichet, 1st class - A = around 17 euro
I recommend R.

why go through the hassle of renting a car? take an overnight train with a first class sleeping car (vagon de durmit). the state railway, CFR, has a website where you can research this. Have fun!
