We've been going to Balatonfoldvar for many, many years but this was our first stay at the Fonix. What a wonderful experience it was! First of all the building is simply lovely: it's a majestic old estate located very close to the lake. Thus it was very impressive from the start! The staff is incredibly friendly, welcoming, and helpful. We... More

Nice stay at Lake Balaton. Fonix Hotel is located 400 meters from the lake. Good location in the town center-Supermarket CBA, promenade with plenty of restaurants, beautiful park with summer cinema. The hotel has a beautiful garden, swimming pool. also offers sauna.Clean room, fridge, tv, plus bath. Comfortable beds. Breakfast could be more varied. But sitting outside in the garden.... More

We booked here because it is close to the train station, has a pool, and - perhaps the determining factor - there was a very attractive offer on b****ing.c*m! We were very happy with our choice, very friendly and helpful on arrival and throughout our short (three nights) stay.

The location is excellent, being less than 10 minutes walk from the Balatonfoldvar railway station but also far enough away from the noise of the main centre. Our room was clean and tidy, with a newish AC unit. The pool here was a real bonus to refresh in after the madness of the (very shallow) lake. We can't comment on... More

We just arrived and they've told us our room is no longer available and have booked us into a different hotel each night of our holiday .... all hotels we would never have stayed in. Not even a courtesy call! We have also been told by locals that in history of hotels in the area these cowboys are notorious. Be... More

The Főnix Hotel is near Lake Balaton at Balatonfoldvar (3 minutes stroll from the lake and the railway station). It is spotlessly clean and friendly, and everything works, although breakfast service is a bit slow as the end of breakfast time approaches. The food in the restaurant is excellent.

This is a very friendly reasonably priced Hotel in a renovated old Villa. The staff is very helpful, warm and knowledgeable. There is a pool which seems to be a favorite for children. The lake is a 5 min walk if that is your preference. The Hotel has several air conditioned rooms which you should specify in advance as your... More

Balatonföldvár is one of the few resorts on Balaton, which maintained some of the fleur of the bathing culture of the 30th of the XX. Century. Some of the private villas got renewed (some of them are private, some others are operated as pension or hotel).But do not expect an intact museum resort there. Te FÖNIX Hotel is the result... More

14 - 15 Sept 2011 It is possible we had the least pleasant room in the hotel - room 19, so that may jade this review. We had a downstairs room at the back of the hotel facing the road (near the pool). The major problem with this room is that it was quite warm and since we were on... More
