“Wonderful weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

We were here only for 2 nights, but this short period was more than enough to realize why this charmy little hotel is on the top of Eger's list.

Cordial welcome, kindly and helpful owners, center-located with parking, warmly baroque-style equipment, beautiful lobby.

Our room was large, direct view to the main square and to a little street, minibar, cable-tv, everything what you can get from a ***hotel.

Breakfast was not so wide, but delicious: hams, cheese, fried egg or omlette, fresh patry, yoghurt, fruits, home made jams, tea, coffe, water, orange juice. It's perfect in the little breakfast-room all around with coloured pictures.

Dinner was superb, we tried the duck breast carpaccio, home made salamis, smoked salmon with beetroot for starters, then catfish stew with pasta, calf stew with gnocchi, spaghetti with ruccola & mozzarella, chicken breastbwith potato puree - all of them was very good. We drank only from the house's wine named Egri Lányka which was from a local winery, and that was ok too.

So i recommend this hotel for everybody who would like feel themselves good in Eger.

Located in the center of Eger, this hotel was a real surprise. I was with my parents, and we received a very large two rooms suit. The rooms were clean and with plenty of light. Breakfast was very charming and fulfilling. After reading on Trip Advisor that the hotel restaurant is recommended, we had dinner there and enjoyed ourselves very much.
Most importantly, the staff was very welcoming and kind.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and would defiantly book there on my next visit to Eger.

Very nice small hotel with the most friendly staff - i guess it was the owner, but he was very nice and helpful. We went by car and you can park for free very close to the hotel. Nice and clean rooms. Breakfast is good and there is what you need. The best thing is the location - just in front of the Castle and at the square. The entrance hall is full of old stuff and very warm and cosy. There is no lift but only a few levels. The beds or our bed was a bit too soft but i guess its personal how you like it.I would definetely go back anytime!

We did not stay at the Senator Haz (it was full) but fortunately discovered the restaurant early in our stay in Eger, where we had gone for the world underwater hockey championships. The food was fabulous and the service very efficient, friendly and helpful. We ate through the menu over 4-5 days and every dish was a winner. Australian team members organised a dinner there and had just as good an experience. I am recommending anyone planning a visit to Budapest to travel 140km further to take in Eger, which is a charming town in itself but even more of a destination with a restaurant of the quality of Senator Haz.

I only stayed here for two nights at the end of August but this was time enough to enjoy the hospitality of my hosts and their delicious food as well.

The hotel is very centrally located, bang on the square facing towards the statue of Dobó István (the burly chap who held off the turks in the 16th century). In the evenings there are usually musicians playing in the square and you do catch the odd strain of tango music wafting upwards through your olde worlde window shutters. However, the music didn't bother me as I could shut the windows and turn on the air con.

My room was clean and had everything I needed. It wasn't gigantic but I expected that from a building that is almost 300 years old. It really is a charming little place and well worth staying in. Do note that there is no lift so try and get a room on the first floor (second floor for our American cousins) if you are no friend to heavy lifting and have poor upper body strength (like me).

The staff were all very friendly but Tamás in particular stood out for me (not least because he's around 6' 5"). He was very helpful and had lots of handy suggestions for places to visit and dishes to try. His English is as impeccable as my hungarian is terrible (he used to live in the UK).

Finally, the restaurant is top notch and has lots of quality hungarian specialities. I'd recommend the mangalica pork if it's on the menu when you get there - melt-in-your-mouth meaty heaven it was.

Sometimes when you read great reviews the experience never quite lives up, Not the case with Senator Haz in Eger. This was really a wonderful place to spend a few days. The hospitality of the owners and staff was exceptional. The restaurant was fun with good food. The room was spacious and despite the fact that we were right over the square, we never were bothered by noise.

Room Tip: I suppose you could ask for a room not facing the main square. We were nervous when we first looked...

This is a well run, charming European countryside hotel. Rooms were smallish, clean, but with nice, modern bathrooms. No elevator here, but also no big tour groups. Eger's castle is a sacred Hungarian site, their "Alamo" where a small group of warriors and townspeople held off thousands of seiging Turks. The castle is the big site, followed by the facade of the church in Dobo Square, and the Lyceum library. We spent one night, sampled the local Hungarian wines, esp. Tokai, and ate twice at the Senator Haz's restaurant (quite good and well priced as compared to Budapest).
