Accor announces the signing of a new franchise agreement for the opening of a Mercure hotel on the Iron Gates Riviera, by the Danube River, which will be the first one affiliated to an international chain in the county.
Mercure Porțile de Fier Riviera Hotel & Resort will be operated by the local hospitality company Queens Horeca Management and will come to market in the third quarter of 2023, after significant refurbishment.
The hotel will feature 70 rooms and suites, a dining restaurant, a bar and a Privilege lounge. To host private and business events, the property will also include a large conference hall, two small meeting rooms and a foyer. In addition, guests can enjoy a SPA & wellness area, with various relaxing and therapy rooms, as well as an outdoor pool.
The new hotel will be located in Gura Vaii, part of Drobeta Turnu-Severin municipality, which is situated on the left bank of the Danube River, in the vicinity of the Serbian border. Nestled in the heart of the Iron Gates natural park, offering a quiet and picturesque natural landscape.
The property is close to a large range of touristic attractions, such as Iron Gates Hydro Power Plan Museum, Gura Văii Vârciorova Nature Reserve, The Danube’s Big Boilers and Ciucaru Mare Mountain.
A Mercure hotel on the Danube Riviera, one of the country’s most fascinating tourist destinations, further strengthens the attractiveness of the area, draws international tourists, and brings modern industry standards and practices. This agreement will grow and consolidate Accor network in south-western Romania, a key market for the group in the Eastern Europe region.

We chose to join hands with a leading international hospitality group such as Accor, to offer our visitors a world-class hotel and professional services to go with it. Also, we did it to connect our hotel to one of the largest marketing and distribution networks worldwide and to make it visible to travelers from all corners of the globe, planning to even develop further the hospitality on the Danube River.
