“Great building - a pity that soooo neglected”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

The building used to be beautiful. It's a sign of times when Romania was a newly independent and fast developing country. You will find more of such pearls from end of XIX - beginning of XX century around the country.
It's a great pity that the building is in such a bad condition. Clearly nobody has any idea what to do it with it. Renovation will be very costly... In 2009 there was a good opportunity to renovate it - 100 anniversary of it's construction. I guess it will have to wait some years.
Nevertheless the casino is a must-see. Just close your eyes and imagine how the life used to be there a century ago with creme de la creme of Romanian (and not only) high-life coming there every evening...

“SAD”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Such a beautiful building and setting and they have let it go to ruins. Really made me sad to show my girls how it looked with the broken windows and chipped paint. It's a tragedy and i hope that they can figure out how to rectify it.

“great place”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

I highly recommend you to go there and visit the Casino and in Old Port there is almost the best restaurant we ate seafood, we ordered mussels in wine sauce (or something) and they were very good...

“Beautiful Elegant Lady in need of Repairs”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

So sad to see this once beautiful Art Nouveau style building fall away to pieces. I was allowed to go inside and take pictures... It was like walking back in time a hundred years ago.

“Great Building/Huge Ruin”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

One of the Constanta's landmark is left in ruins. A great building with an exellent position on the Black Sea's promenade area is lost between political games and interests.
