The most famous, but not the best hotel in Pécs

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 22, 2008

I used to work in the hospitality industry, so this is my professional opinion, but I did have friends staying in this hotel.

The three star, 100 room hotel is located on the main pedestrian street, Király utca of downtown Pécs, in an impressive art deco building. It is worth walking in, looking around in the richly decorated lobby and, if possible, in the elegant ball room on the first floor, where Béla Bartók once performed. But, that is all about it. Great location, great architecture, not so great rooms.

Most of the rooms are small, you feel you cannot breath, and, as there is no air-conditioning, they can get really hot in the summer. The food is mediocre. Parking is expensive. The room price is high compared to the value. If you really want to stay here, take a suite, they are much more comfortable, and are equipped with airconditioner.

If you insist on staying with the Danubius Hotel chain, then their other hotel, Hotel Patria is a better bet. That does not have such a great location, but it is still in downtown, only ten minutes easy walk from Palatinus accross Széchenyi tér and on a very nice street (Ferencesek utcája). It is in a not too pretty modern building. A completely different atmosphere, but much more comfortable rooms. The food is a bit better, too, and parking is much easier and cheaper. (Maybe included in the room price?)

If you insist on the good location of Palatinus, I recommend Aranyhajó, a small private hotel in an old building right next to it. Bigger rooms, attentive staff, lower prices.

Unique Quality: Palatinus is located in a richly decorated art deco building. The atmosphere of the lobby and the ballroom is great.

We did not stay at Palatinus Hotel, but met an elderly, american couple on the train and they were heading to this hotel. We walked by this place many times and it is spectacular, espcially at night. Even the locals praise it. Not too expensive and the staff speaks German and English too.

The hotel is situated in the historic inner-city, in the walking street directly opposite the Szechenyi square.

Unique Quality: Restaurant with international and Hungarian cuisine, Gosser Brasserie.
The elegant banquet hall, where Bela Bartok once performed, was restored to its former splendor. This grand art-deco building offers all modern comforts and facilities.

Hotel "Palatinus" is located in the heart of the city, just a foot from Szechenyi Square. See the very attractive entrance in this yesteryear type of hotel.

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 25, 2002

Hotel building and lobby and beautifully restored. The economy rooms on the 5th floor are plain, but the bathrooms seem to have be updated since my first stay. The rooms are clean and most on that floor have a fabulous view of Pecs or the country-side. The included breakfast had a wide variety of choices including eggs and meat. The staff were very accommodating.

Unique Quality: It is a Jugenstil era hotel -- beautiful stenciling in the lobby and in the large restaurant where we had breakfast.

There are plenty of good restaurant choices on Kiraly utca as well as the state theater and shopping.

Directions: On the walking street in the center of Pecs

Unique Quality: The composer Bela Bartok gave a concart is the concert hall of the hotel once.
In Hungary it is normal to write the surname first followed by the christian name and so on the sign on the hotel it is Bartok Bela
