Hotel Delta Tulcea

If you’re looking for a place to stay in Tulcea for your Danube Delta vacation, your first choice should definitely be the Delta Hotel.

[adsense]It is the first hotel built in the city, it is the biggest, the most luxurious and it has a fantastic location that offers a breathtaking view of the city’s promenade.

Can I get away with another flattering comment? 🙂

It also has its own fleet of ships that you can hire for a ride deeper into the Delta.

That was, in a nutshell, what I believe makes this the greatest place to stay at.

Let’s go into more details to see what’s so cool about it:

The Location

If you could draw an imaginary bull’s-eye right in the city center, Hotel Delta would be right there. It can’t get any better than this.

And not only is it in the city center, but it is also located on the city promenade, in the middle of the action.

The awesome view

There’s nothing like the sight that you get from any of the rooms. You have an unbelievable panorama, with a full view of the Danube, the harbor, the promenade and the center.

The accommodation facilities

Hotel Delta actually consists of two distinct hotels… the first one is the ‘Delta 3 Hotel’, with three stars. That’s the older building, which was built like 40 years ago I guess. You can book a room here.

A few years ago they’ve built a new building which offers four star conditions and they call it the ‘Delta 4 Hotel’. It has a very pointy shape, inspired by boats I guess. It has a nice glass façade which, in the evening, makes a mind-blowing reflection. Reserve your four star room here.

The boats!

The hotel organizes plenty of trips in the Danube Delta, with its own ships. They are Sturzu, Camena and another one which I keep forgetting its name.

Of course, they have excellent conditions. The onboard crew is trained to make every visitor feel fantastic.


Delta Nature Resort Closed for 2010

Word just got out that the five star Delta Nature Resort complex won’t open for the 2010 summer season.

[adsense]One reason is the small number of booked guests that signed up in advance. It all has to do with the crisis that’s left everybody with a little less money in the pocket, and also with the new rumors about some birds being infected with bird flu, pig flu, penguin flu or who knows what.

I’ve heard it all before. Like five years ago. Same story… three birds were found dead… after summary analysis, the killer was found: bird flu! Then a massive operation was mounted to dispose of a huge number of innocent little birds, only to discover a month later that it was all … how can I say it, bullshit. Those three birds died of natural causes. Sometimes I think that there’s somebody out there who’s interested in messing with the Delta, but I can’t just put my finger on it.

But back to Delta Nature Resort, the other reason it’ll stay closed this year is because they’re also building a major spa and heath center which they cannot do when there’s tourists around.

This will allow the resort attract a large new range of customers and continue to function off season.

The works were started last year in October and will continue throughout most of the 2010 summer and will open again for the public in 2011.
