Fodor's Expert Review Sopronbánfalvi Kolostor Hotel

Kolostorhegy utca 2, Sopron, Gyor-Moson-Sopron, 9400, Hungary Fodor's Choice

If you're looking for a memorable stay in Sopron, look no further than this extraordinary 12th-century monastery-turned-hotel. The bedrooms, many of which are old monk's cells but have now been elegantly refurbished as simple but stylish en-suite rooms, are spread across the old cloister of the monastery, with views either of the central courtyard, the beautiful garden, or the forest around. To help promote the meditative atmosphere, there are no TVs in the rooms (though there is Wifi), as well as no minibar and no room service. The hotel's gorgeous vaulted and frescoed Refektórium restaurant serves delicious, beautifully presented meals every evening for hotel guests (the standard package is half board), and even the conference room is worth a visit for its historic wood-beamed ceiling. Ask at reception for the key to the monastery church, and visit in the morning to see its beautiful frescoes and carved pulpit illuminated in the early light.
