A magic time travel in the country’s only Hussar hotel

We are proud to announce that Hotel Óbester**** is an unrivalled world curiosity among the hotels of Debrecen.

Why do we think it?

In response, we invite you for a virtual time travel of a few minutes in the country’s only Hussar hotel!

The word Hussar is probably derived from the word “husz” (húsz; or “twenty” in Hungarian). King Matthias ordered that “a soldier must be appointed to the army of the king per each twenty serf land”. This means that the cost of twenty land owners should cover one appointed soldier. King Matthias calls the light cavalry of his popular Black Army as Hussars already in 1481.

Hotel Óbester is located in the historic downtown of Debrecen, at the mouth of the street named after the Óbester (the archaic version of the word colonel) of Simony. In its every little detail, the hotel cites this heroic Hungarian company! To the amusement of guests staying in our hotel, the magical time travel is ensured by individually designed and prepared contemporary furniture and authentic exhibition items.

At us you can bath in tubs, light a candle and cover your window with heavy upholstery.

At the same time we tried to do our best to preserve the historic national atmosphere while equipping the place with today’s modern technology - and our dream was finally realized.

We are proud of the fact that our hotel is the world’s first Hussar hotel, therefore we named it after the legendary Hussar officer, born in the vicinity of our region, Baron Joseph Simonyi from Barbács and Vitézvár, or better known as Óbester Simonyi.
