Nice view but unfortunately no entertainment for tourists. 2 minutes visit to Dracula tomb and that's it. They should improve on entertainment part. It has huge potential. Definitely worth visiting at least once in a life time

I got there around 11:00 PM and the sight of the hotel is really interesting during the night with all the red lights and dark appearance of the "castle" . I actually liked the idea of having to walk from the parking through the big gates, through the main court and finally get to the reception . I don't know... More

I have been coming here since I was a child. The view and the area are absolutely breathtaking. However, the restaurant really disappointed me this time. The quality of the food has deteriorated and the prices have gone way up. It's as if no effort is being put into this place anymore. We had a party of 9, with 2... More

It took 6 years to build this fantastic hotel on top of the mountains, somewhere deep in north Transylvania! With a bit of luck you can see the fantastic mountain view on both sides. Visit the tunnels, dungeon, Dracula's grave and coffin. Very nice staff. Book the white suite from the tower on the 4th floor. Definitely a place to... More

Estonishing surroundings but the hotel outdated! The place is very clean, but it needs an immediate refurbish in order to gain customers and of course its lost fame. The place is relatively large, but the acces is a litle complicated, like the menu at the restaurant. There, I eat some "mici" (a traditional romanian grilled mix of meats) but the... More

The hotel is situated in a very beautiful area. If you have time i reccomend a trip to Colibita lake. The hotel is an interesting mix of "medieval" and modern things, probably very attractive for foreigners looking for Dracula. Rooms are small with some medieval touch and not too much technology(the TVs are CRT for example). In my opinion the... More

Great place, castle-kind of hotel with red colours and lights all over the place. The food in the hotel restaurant really sucks, i have ordered pork meat with Dracula sauce. The waiter told me the sauce is really spicy, my kind of spicy. After bringing the pork meat with potatoes she forgot to bring the sauce; i requested and finally... More

This was the last hotel on our 3 day journey. The views from the terrace are outstanding also the road to the hotel, passing thru Pasul Tihuta. The room was a bit cold at the begining and we had to call the reception to check the problem, and they solved it. The food was not the best, breakfast was OK.... More

We haven't stayed in the hotel, only had lunch in its restaurant, but the food was really bad. Tasteless, deep-frozen ingredients, tough meat, accompanied with bees trained by Dracula. The food was so bad that even Dracula moved to another place.
