Recently refurbished, the Hotel Minaret is ideal for those looking for convenience, comfort and good value during their stay in Eger.
Looking down from the Minaret onto the Hotel Minaret
Located slap bang in the middle of the town centre, the Hotel Minaret is perfect for tourists interested in experiencing the sights. Both the Castle and the Minaret are visible from the hotel and the open air baths, museums, wine cellars, restaurants etc. are within walking distance.

The hotel has 40 rooms in four categories: Manzard, Classic, Family and City.
The Manzard and Classic rooms are for individuals and couples, whereas the Family and City cater for groups or families.
All rooms come with wifi, air-conditioning, private bathroom and hair-dryer.
Although simply furnished, all of the rooms are comfortable and perfectly adequate for a short term stay.
Room in the 'Classic' category
When it comes to food you are spoiled for choice as there are countless restaurants and cafes in the vicinity.
If you would prefer to eat in, the hotel has its own restaurant which serves a buffet breakfast for guests of the hotel, and has a lunch and dinner menu. A variety of Hungarian and International dishes are on offer and special diets are catered for.
There is also a garden terrace if you fancy a bit of alfresco dining, and a traditional wine cellar serving local specialties.

What you find below are two columns: one outlining the positives of Hotel Minaret and the other the negative as expressed by their guests. This information is collated from hotel review websites such as tripadvisor.com, booking.com and agoda.com.
Secure parking (for a fee)
Noise from the street
No lift and lots of stairs
Hotel Minaret gets a score of 57% on tripadvisor.com (calculated from 7 guest reviews) and on booking.com a score of 7.5/10 (calculated from 16 reviews).
From my reading of the reviews, most guests are satisfied with the hotel. Its main selling point seems to be its location, which ironically contributes to guests' biggest complaint, the noise.
