We were very dissapointed. The food was horrible, without any taste. Nobody spoke any language except Hungarian. Dr.Pohl (the owner) was very annoying and pushy. At dinner he came around five times and was just looking at our plates. You have to drive there with a really old car (Trabant) otherwise Dr.Pohl will charge you more for your stay. The... More

We came in late in the day, and late in the season, and spent a pleasant time here. The price was reasonable, and the room was clean and simple. The reasons to stay here are the location, the staff, and the beautiful courtyard. Staff...espresso @ 2100, no problem. Very friendly. Courtyard.....a step back to relaxed classical. Comfortable too. Location...walk up... More

We've received a family apartment for 2 person/1 night for 73 EUR because they told us that there isn't any other free room in the main hotel. The apartment was in another building placed between the railway station and the main street. The room was on the groundfloor, without wifi, air conditioning and very noisy to sleep. The furniture was... More

We were thinking of booking into this hotel to stay and looked at the menu on their internet page. Thankfully we stay elsewhere but thought we would try the restaurant and the photos of the place and the menu seem good. The photos were deceptive as the place was filthy with dead spiders hanging down from the lamp shades over... More

We had been driving on a daily basis for some days and we were tired when we spotted this nice little hotel on the road side in Fonyad and decided to take a break. The hotel looked fine from outside and so we decided to take it up. The lady at the reception hardly spoke to us in any language... More

The hotel has made a good impression upon arrival. It was clean, with nicely arranged public places in the corridors. Clean room, quiet location, nice staff. Also the city itself has made a nice impression - quiet (out of season), fresh... I felt deep serenity when we were walking nearby the lake... a feeling of a good rest after noisy... More

We were driving through Hungary at night, and decided with my wife to stip and sleep at Hotel Balaton: we were accepted by a very nervous lady who did not make us feel welcome at all, we were not shown to our room and we were given the wrong WI FI password!! Once in the room the heating was not... More
