Like the other two accommodation providers we recommend in Dobo Utca, the Dobo Guesthouse is in a prime location. It sits on a cobbled, pedestrianised street and all the sights of Eger are within walking distance as are the Turkish Baths and the Eger Strand (water park/lido)
In the shadow of Eger's famous castle this little B&B is an oasis of calm in what can be quite a busy little city in the summer months. It is run by a friendly, non-English speaking couple, who are always at pains to ensure that their guests are comfortable and satisfied.
Dobo Guesthouse is located on picturesque Dobo Utca
Dobo Guesthouse has 6 rooms in total. Each is modestly furnished and includes a refrigerator, cable television, a private bathroom with shower or bath and some of them have air-conditioning.
If you want air-conditioning in your room, then make sure you ask when booking; it can get very hot in the summer months in Hungary and you don't want to be caught out.
Rooms are basic but comfortable
The guesthouse provides free parking in its own yard, this is a huge bonus as it is very difficult to find parking in the town centre.
As already stated, the location of Dobo Guesthouse is second to none. There are countless bars and restaurant within 500 metres of the place, the castle is a stone's throw away and, should the summer heat get the better of you, drag yourselves down to the baths just a 15 minute stroll along the Eger stream.
A couple of the rooms have balconies with a view on to the Minorite Church
I know the owner of Dobo Guesthouse, so I am not going to give my review of the place as it would most likely be biased. Therefore I have consulted
other sources for their experiences, good and bad.
