The Schönherr merchant family of Pécs had an exclusive inn built on Széchenyi square in 1846. The hotel was addressed to the Nádor, or the Palatine of Hungary, which was the highest feudal administrative rank of the country before 1848. The new establishment had thirty rooms and a café. The curiosity of the inn was that the dome of the restaurant could be opened up with a peculiar manual device, so the guests could have a dinner under the starlit sky. Following the reconstructions according to the plans of Imre Schlauch a new, three-storey, secessionist Hotel Nádor opened in 1902 that soon became the central venue of the town's tourism. The ground level housed a restaurant and a very popular café that entertained the local citizens. The commander-in-chief of the occupying Russian army chose Hotel Nádor as their headquarters in November 1944. Following the liberation of Hungary the hotel became a property of the state. Hotel Nádor was receiving guests until 1989. The reconstruction works are still in progress, therefore the oldest hotel of Pécs will most certainly shine with the old splendour again in the next few years.
