The Palatinus is right in the very centre of the town making it ideal for exploring the sites. It is leftover of bygone elegance and extravagance, especially as far as the public spaces are concerned (lobby, lift, dining room). Our room was on the second floor, adequate, perfectly clean, but small and unimpressive, with an old TV and with the extractor fan not working in the bathroom. However, beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. Breakfast was good and plentiful.
My only real gripe would be that for a good hotel, wifi was charged extra if used in the rooms. It was free in the lobby, but there are only 8 armchairs there, so if they're taken, you have to pay. I think this is something I'd expect from a cheap place looking to make a few extra pounds - not an elegant hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- With its historic monuments, cultural events, charming streets, thermal baths, fine wines and scenic hiking routes, Pécs is understandably one of Hungary’s leading tourist destinations – and Hotel Palatinus is among its most beautiful buildings! Entering the grand lobby is like stepping into a different era, and Art-Nouveau masterpieces like the stunning ballroom – where Béla Bartók once performed – continue to enchant guests to this day. The hotel is also an excellent base for exploring, located just off the main square in the historic old town, and next door to shops and restaurants. ... more less
