Actually Vlad Tepes (Dracula) didn't even visit these parts of Romania, he was a ruler hundreds of miles from here. The hotel is nice and clean, but the food wasn't that great at all. I have eaten some pork and didn't feel that good after that. It's a pitty because I've eaten a few times here before and was very... More

I stayed at Castel Dracula in March 2015 for 1 night. This place is rated at 3*, but to be fare is more a 2*. It has a few things working for it, like : amazing location, a truly wonderful restaurant and vine cellar, the legend of Bram Stoker's Dracula behind it, BUT.... you only have wi-fi on one side...

The hotel has the most accurate location of the actual Dracula's castle. The staff will give you a vampire-like experience, the view is great and if you dare, you can visit the dark catacombs where Dracula used to sleep... did I say used to? I meant is sleeping.

Head through the wooded hills and spectacular valleys of the Borgo Pass and you'll arrive at the Castle Dracula Hotel. On first impression it appears more of a modern mansion than an old-style castle, but is in fact more like the sort of Dracula castle you'd expect to see designed by a Las Vegas architect. You can watch a beautiful... More

I stayed at Dracula Castle in 2014, when I was on my way between two conferences. First of all, the rooms are a little bit small but very cosy. It is a very warm hotel inside. The accomodation is very good, the food in restautant is traditional. At dinner we eat grilled fish (trout), polenta, garlic sauce. As dessert we... More

We stayed here as part of an outstanding tour conducted by Transylvania Live. I had read about this hotel years ago. During the Communist times in the 1980s it was built on the Borgo Pass where they estimated that Dracula's Castle would have been built if Bram Stoker's novel was true. However, historians and geographers reckon it is more likely... More

Visited during a 7 day trip with foreign tourists. The landscape is outstanding, but I consider the hotel is a kitsch. Despite the accommodation is comfortable, I don't find this hotel a good idea for the idyllic place.

Thee is heavy smoking in the hotel, including hotel personnel, heavy use of the reception floor restrooms with no proper cleaning ( a mix of toilet and cleaning agent smell), old fashion broom-and-dust pan cleaning manner, breakfast buffet is mobbed during the summer weekends when the personnel cannot keep...
