Hotel Korona

Small hotel, great facilities

Hotel Korona is a relatively small, locally owned hotel, however, it has facilities and services that puts other, similarly sized hotels to shame.

Hotel Korona has its own wine museum

Looking more like an apartment block than a hotel, Hotel Korona is located away from the hustle and bustle of Eger's centre but close enough to be able to stroll to the major sights, shops and restaurants.

The hotel is split into two parts connected by a covered walkway, one part is three stars and the other four stars, but the only difference is in the rooms, all facilities and services are the same whichever part of the hotel guests are staying in.

Not the prettiest hotel in Eger




There are a lot of different room categories at Hotel Korona, all offering different facilities/services:

3* standard double room: 15 sqm; single, double and twin;television, telephone, minibar; hairdryer, bathrobe; located in annexe

Hotel Korona's Presidential Suite. The grandest hotel room in Eger?

Included in the prices of all rooms and suites are the following:

  • Buffet breakfast
  • Usage of the wellness and fitness area (swimming pool, jacuzzi, fun pool, aroma and salt cabin, Finnish sauna, infra sauna, gym, relaxing and sun bathing area)
  • Entrance fee into the István Wine Cellar and National Wine Museum
  • Playground for children
  • Playroom for children and adults
  • Cot, highchair, tub for children

The indoor pool

One of the big draws of the Hotel Korona is its wellness area. It has a spa, sauna, jacuzzi, steam-room, solarium, indoor pool and a variety of massages on offer.

If this is not enough, then the Eger open baths are within walking distance as are the Turkish baths.

Restaurant laid for breakfast

The hotel has an extensive kitchen and apart from the complimentary hot and cold buffet breakfast, a la carte lunches and dinners are served.

A variety of Hungarian specialties and international dishes are available and, as you would expect from a hotel that has its own wine museum, an extensive selection of wines.

Taking pride of place in the Korona, is the Istvan Wine Cellar which also houses the National Wine Museum. It dates from the late eighteenth century and houses a superb collection of wine. I discuss the wine museum in more detail on another page.

Wine tasting programs are available in the Istvan Wine Cellar

Hotel Korona - What the guests say

What you find below are two columns: one outlining the positives of Hotel Korona 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.

Due to the subjective nature of reviews, I have only included positive/negative experiences expressed by a minimum of three separate reviewers. Also, only reviews given in English are taken into account as this site is aimed at English speakers.

The Good

Good Food

Friendly Service

4* rooms

Wine cellar/Museum


Secure parking (but a fee to pay)

The Bad

3* rooms (minimum sound proofing, decor, mattresses)

Hotel Korona gets a score of 64% on tripadvisor.com (calculated from 28 guest reviews) and on booking.com a score of 7.9/10 (calculated from 50 reviews).

From my reading of the reviews, there is a big difference in the reviews of those who stayed in the 4* rooms and those in the 3*; it is not the facilities, the service or food that upsets people rather it is the conditions of the lower quality rooms.
