I feel like the reviews on this site aren't really accurate, and people should know what they are getting into by staying at this place. Firstly, the town itself seems to be dying, but in any event, it's strictly a mining town and there's nothing to do here as far as nightlife or coffee shops. The only coffee shop is the hotel, which is where locals flock to after work. None of this is the fault of the staff: they are helpful and try their best, but Madjanpek as a town is simply a dead end. The hotel itself is straight out of old Yugoslavia. I felt I was staying in a museum of hotels rather than an actual modern hotel. All the basic necessities were there, but it just had a creepy feeling to it. It's a rather large hotel, but I wouldn't have been surprised if the only…
Everything was perfect. Rooms very clean and spacious, comfortable and big. Bathroom excellently equipped. Food was very tasty, all praise for chefs. WiFi worked perfectly in all areas in the hotel. Very good location, hotel located in city center. Good value for money. Great service, very friendly, helpful, polite and respectful staff. Perfect overall opinion. I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone.
Being the only hotel in Majdanpek, the Golden Inn is a only option. Like the other buildings in this small mining town this hotel is very old and the traces of time have left the marks everywhere. We asked to stay in the newly renovated rooms which are adequate for 2-3 days stay. The hotel organises all the big events in town (weddings, christenings, festivals, etc) with the live music and dancing. The food in the hotel restaurant is also adequate. Howver, the best in this hotel are the actual people and their service, They are always there to help, they are always smiling and nothing is difficult. For exploring the buety of East Serbia, reserve this hotel.
Majdanpek is a good base for exploring this part of eastern Serbia, lots of sites. Golubac. Iron Gates, Rajko's Cave are within easy driving distance. It's certainly not what you would call cosmopolitan and you will stand out like a sore thumb as a tourist but the people are very friendly. Our room at the Golden Inn was a large suite, big. clean and comfortable and the staff at reception and at the bar are extremely friendly and helpful. The bar area is a real busy local hub from morning to night. Really good spot.
Mandanpek is not a town that could be considered on the tourist trail for foreign visitors. However we were made feel very welcome and really enjoyed our night there. We stayed in a suite and it was very large. Huge bed, nice seating area, fresh fruit and water available, blackout curtains and very quiet. We had a good meal in the restaurant- I don't believe there is any other one in town. Breakfast was enormous and very good. The hotel would be a strange experience for someone not used to communist era decor and routine but I always find it comforting and so different from the sometimes standardised approach in western hotels.
