This is an old-time guesthouse in the historical downtown of Kaposvar. The name Borostyan means Ivy or Amber in Hungarian. Our guesthouse is located nearby the Theatre Csiky Gergely. The theatre was built in 1911 in secessionist style which was been being very popular those times. The theatre - embraced by the old linden trees of the theatre’s park - is the outstanding representative of the Hungarian theatrical life for many decades. In the repertoire besides the plays for adults we can find prose and musical plays, and performances for children as well. You can find the actual monthly program among our recommended links. The beautiful building of the theatre is characteristic part of the city’s image.
About 100 meters far from the guesthouse, in the Setaloutca (Pedestrian Zone) is found the Old County Hall (Regi Megyehaza) which was built in classic style. Close to it one can see the baroque-styled Golden Lion Pharmacy (Aranyoroszlan Patika), the first drugstore of the city. Few hundred meters away from the pharmacy is the late baroque-styled Dorottya House (Dorottya Haz) and the former National School (Nemzeti Iskola) which was the first school of the city. On the most beautiful square of the city, on the Kossuth square (Kossuth ter) is situated the Our Great Lady Cathedral (Nagyboldogasszony Szekesegyhaz). Next to it stands the rococo statue of Mary’s Column.
In the summer of 2006 the family spa called Viragfurdo, one of the highlights of our city has opened its gates. With 3462 m2 of water surface it owns the widest undivided water surface among the family spa in Transdanubia. From the guesthouse it can be approached by a 10 minutes’ easy walk.
Two suites, two superior rooms, one small apartment, nine comfortably furnished standard two-bed rooms and one one-bed room stand at our guests’ service. Some of our rooms can be equipped with additional bed.
For families with small children we can provide a baby bed. The rooms include air-conditioning, bathroom, phone, colour TV, mini bar and internet access. In the suite a hydro-massage tub assures refreshing for our dear guests’ refreshment.
The parking place in our backyard can be used freely.
On request we take up the task of the organising and arranging of special occasions, class reunions, banquettes, and other meetings up for 40 persons, both indoors and outdoors in the open-air part of our restaurant.
Apart from the cultural offers of Kaposvar there are many kinds of opportunities to spend free time leisurely. With thermal, swimming and children’s pools the Kaposvar City Pool (Varosi Furdo) awaits guests who enjoy bathing. The forests, lakes surrounding the city promise a great program opportunity for the lovers of nature. For the people interested in equestrian sports the Riding School (Lovasakademia) and the horse bases near the Lake Deseda offer an excellent way of spending time.
We hope to see you as our guest soon!
