It's November, so I guess it's not high season in Tulcea... However, i would really expect a 4* hotel to have a porter on duty. Arrived 9pm on a Friday with a seminar to present on Saturday. No one to help me with my materials, had to drag the trolley with all my materials up a *very* steep ramp by... More

Not a very pleasant experience. Food was ok but not great. The dining room is lacklsutre and the tables are of uneven height. Waiters were not very... More

What a fantastic hotel. Beautiful views over the River Danube. Ideal location right on the quayside and very close to Tulcea centre.We booked a suite for 3 days for an amazingly cheap price, prior to taking a river cruise up the Danube. Off season so very quiet, but the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble... More

I believe we reviewed this hotel in 2008 and were happy with our find. Today it is much as was and is certainly much easier to drive to as a result of the road improvements throughout Romania. We booked direct for two nights and were lucky enough to find that we were located once more on the 5th floor and... More

The hotel is set right on the river quay and most rooms have a river view. Rooms are correctly appointed and fairly large (executives are almost double in size), even though it needs be said that some of the bathrooms show some wear here and there. There are two restaurants, a trattoria and an international one, both with small terraces.... More

I travelled many times to Tulcea for business and pleasure and stayed in almost all the hotels in town, 3* and 4*. From quality vs money point of view, I can say for sure that ESPLANADA is the best option. Location is great, by the river bank, near two duty-free shops and the port to the Danube Delta boats.

Room has outstanding views of the Danube, it is halfway between where the river is a environmental paradise and an industrial port. All amenities are served in the background of the river, commencing from Breakfast up till Dinner. Staff overall helpful, and the hotel is in a perfect position within the city of Tulcea.

If you plan to take a boat tour to the Danube Delta, this hotel is in the best location, in the port from which the boats exist. The room was clean and nice, the service was excellent.

We were here for a wedding in Tulcea. The hotel probably the best in the area. Great breakfast and wonderful lunch. The staff ia very kind and helpful. The only con is that the floors were all carpet which doesnt feel very modern but it was a very clean and spacious hotel.
