A thousand metres high up on Galyatető
If you are not afraid of heights and slightly nomadic circumstances, this place is a must. You need to bring a sleeping bag, but wifi and electricity are provided. As one of the highest points in the country, the 360-degree view is absolutely exquisite. The building has colourful, circular windows, giving the whole place a cosy ambience for the night.
Hobbit houses in the Őrség
This eco-farm is the work of a Belgian couple. They live in a self-sustainable way, very close to nature. They keep animals – cows and chickens-, grow vegetables and built the houses on the plot from their own ground. The smaller house is fit for three people while the bigger one can give refuge to five.
With a unique location right on the border, not only the hotel but the entire area has a magical feel to it. The most famous monument of the area is the watermill from the time of Maria Theresa. There is also a huge sycamore tree next to it, while the nearby village is the proud owner of the house Zsigmond Móricz, the 20th-century Hungarian writer, lived as a young boy. The watermill hotel is the perfect place for a bit of relaxation or even for trying some extreme sports.
Africa-like life in the Bükk
This 4-star luxury hotel provides an authentic African experience with the help of the amazing design and the staff dressed in traditional clothing. The name of the hotel comes from the tribe living in North-Africa called Bambara as the interior was designed following their traditions.
Treehouses in the Őrség
In this unique location, you can literally wake up to birds singing in your ear. The calmness and quiet of the woods ensure a romantic atmosphere, with nature right outside the window and the smells and noises of a warm summer night guaranteed. However, there is no electricity except in the common rooms, so you better go prepared.
A church hotel in the Bükk
Served as a church up until 2007, the owner originally wanted to create a family resort, but the building proved to be too big for that. So, they decided to open a hotel instead. The building had to be renovated, of course, but it was worth it – the result is a puritan-looking outside, and an elegantly minimalist inside that caters to modern needs.
Luxury yurts in the Great Plain
This place combines ancient traditions – the yurt, the home of Ancient Hungarians – and modern conveniences like air conditioning and underfloor heating. The yurts also have their own terrace and three stories inside. It is the perfect place for those wanting to return to nature while still enjoying luxurious circumstances. It even offers glass ceilings that open up to the starry night, really providing a unique experience.
Swine stable for bikers
The building was built in the early 1900s, originally as a swine stable. Now, it is a truly minimalist accommodation for bikers and those who just want shelter from the night, literally on beds made out of straw, without any luxurious circumstances. Spending a night here only costs 500 HUF (1.58 EUR), but there are only seven spots available, with a shared bathroom and restroom.
Modern-time cave hotel
The apartments were created in 300-year-old caves. The rooms come with an equipped kitchen and a bathroom with a shower in it. At the hotel in Sirok, you can feel like the Flintstones while still enjoying the conveniences of the modern world.
