4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Stayed in this hotel during a conference trip to Pecs in 2010. It just so happened that Pecs was hosting the European capital of culture that year so that was an added bonus. Pecs was a pleasant surprise: modern, clean, the old city centre beautifully resotred. The same goes for this hotel - a small gem just out of the old city centre near the old fort in the city walls (hence the name). I was allocated a room (these are huge, by the way!) in the top floor which gave me a beautiful view of the city's roofs and a bit of a park. It was quite astounding. The food was good, the survice was very nice - as was the whole experience. If you happen to be in Pecs this hotel won't dissapoint you. Neither will Pecs.

Barbakan Hotel lies at the North East side of the city centre, within 5 minutes you are standing at the UNESCO 4th Century Christian graves! The rooms are clean, have German style furniture and neat. We slept with our two kids in the family room at the top of the building. Only negative point is that the sheets are too short for the mattresses, but you see that more often. There is an elevator for most rooms and at the back (very) limited parking, but you can park at the front of the hotel also. The breakfast is good, there is a buffet with some standard drinks and food (bread, butter, jam, honey etc), and you can order a dish from the menu with eggs or a cold plate with a.o. typical Hungarian salami. The receptionist speaks some German and English. Well recommended!

This hotel is very good for a 3-star hotel.
The hotel is relatively new and the rooms are quite good. The only thing that could be better is the breakfast, which should be more diverse.
The location is very good, very near the city center.

This 3-star hotel is a very good 3-star option in rural Hungary. The rooms are large, have air-conditioning (vital in Summer), and freshly renovated bathrooms. The beds are comfy, although they are all singles - so no double or king-sized beds. Strangely, they seem to have purchased sheets that don't fully fit the beds and the pillows are horrible. Breakfast is OK with a selection of cereals, yoghurt, bread rolls, coffee, tea and cooked breakfast options. Fruit was nowhere to be seen and the juice was heavily watered down. The service was excellent and always delivered with a smile. The location is fantastic as you are just a 2 minute walk from the Barbakan and 5 minutes to the cathedral and early Christian tombs. It is important to note that you cannot pay with credit card - it is cash only.

We arrived in Pecs from Romania in the early evening and our sat-nav found the Barbakan for us. First impressions were that it looked quite small and very well kept - this was confirmed at the reception which was also small and very well kept!

The receptionist had very basic English and of course we couldn't speak Hungarian, but we were quickly checked into what turned out to be a very pleasant and comfortable hotel. Although the hotel has a small parking area at the rear, we had to park on waste ground just across from the hotel entrance, which we were assured was safe.

We ate out that night, but had breakfast in the rather splendid hotel dining room. The food was very nice with assorted types of egg, all liberally sprinkled with paprika.

If I'm ever in Pecs again, I'll be back at the Barbakan.

  • Liked — Not far from the city centre and clean and comfy rooms.
  • Disliked — Not much private parking space.
