Hotel Arany Griff

Pápa, Veszprém

In the heart of the West-Hungarian baroque town of Pápa, on the beautiful main square, a few steps away from the Esterházy Castle, is the 3-star Hotel Arany Griff. The hotel was named after the bird in the Esterházy family coat of arms.

Due to its central location, the most important sights of Pápa can be quickly and easily reached from the hotel, e.g. the Castle Garden Bath (Várkertfürdő), the Great Church (Nagy Templom) on the main square, the Reformed Church and Library (Református Templom és Könyvtár) and the Museum of Blue Dyes (Kékfestő Múzeum).

Room information

The deluxe rooms and two suites are on the first floor with a direct view of the Great Church. The remaining deluxe rooms of the hotel are spread over three floors. All 25 rooms are equipped with their own bathroom (shower or bathtub).


Guest parking is free in the inner courtyard, and public parking spaces in front of the hotel are free of charge on Saturdays and Sundays.

Pure plant based gastronomy

The Restaurant-Bistro offers purely vegetable dishes. The plant-based „meat“ ingredients are all produced by us. We offer fare from fast food (juicy burgers, crispy nuggets, …) to gourmet cuisine at star level (schnitzel, roast, steak, filet …), which are visually and taste-wise no different from real meat dishes.
For snacks we serve Italian coffee specialties, homemade cakes and desserts.

Events and conferences at the hotel

The hotel’s air-conditioned hall of mirrors offers excellent facilities for 150 people to enjoy corporate events, family celebrations, concerts, lectures, cultural programmes, balls and weddings, all organised by our specialist staff.
During conferences and other courses, coffee breaks and buffet meals are available on request.

Wellness in Pápa

A pleasant 5-10 minute walk from the hotel takes you to the newly completed Castle Garden baths. Here you can bathe, swim, relax and do something good for your health. 11 pools with a total water surface of 2000 m² guarantee guests unforgettable experiences all year round. The thermal bath has indoor and outdoor swimming areas. The garden bath also offers Jacuzzi, paddling pool, sauna, hairdresser, cosmetics, fitness and various wellness treatments.
Discounted tickets to the Castle Garden baths are available to Hotel Arany Griff guests.

Places of interest

The baroque town of Pápa is situated on the Tapolcza, approximately halfway between Győr (Raab) and Lake Balaton.

The Esterházy Castle goes back to a complex constructed from 1408-1432 and was inherited by Nikolaus Esterházy in 1626. The castle was destroyed during the Rákóczi uprising. In 1717 new construction began on a baroque castle. At the end of the 1750s Bishop Karl Eszterházy inherited the castle and had it completed in the form it has largely retained to this day.

Between the castle and the town, Bishop Eszterházy had the large St. Stephen’s Catholic Church built between 1774-1786. Today it is the most famous landmark of the town.

Apart from the castle and its park, which is a nature reserve, the Great Church on the renovated main square, and many other baroque residential buildings in the historic district of the town are under monumental protection.
