La Contessa hotel is a very romantic wellness hotel not far from Budapest (only 150 km). Perfect for a romantic hideaway! The hotel is situated in a fully refurbished castle + a courtyard building. The entire place looks brand new in May 2014. Rooms are spacious and clean. The service is absolutely alright: the reception staff is helpful and the... More

The catering was nearly perfect, we missed only some fruit at breakfast, but to be honest they were offered for dinner. The spa is still amaizing an mainly clean, only the huge... More

For the first time we were there with a 1 year old in the summertime. The wellness area was too busy, steam room didn't work, kids's pond is ridiculously small even for 2 toddlers, but the outside pool, live guitar music, and the closeness of the forest kind of made up for it. Food was great, white glove service was... More

This was my third stay at the hotel with family. It has a wonderful location, perfect for a long weekend away with family (including children). In summary: Positives 1) Location. Wonderful walks etc surround the hotel. 2) Family. Works for couples, but also families with children. 3) Pool/Sauna. Well laid out, good to unwind at the end of the day.... More

The hotel/castle is well renovated, well maintained. In a beautiful location. Spa is great, restaurant beautiful. However staff is not very professional. We met ~15 staff, 4 of whom smiled, the rest just did their job. There is a lot more potential in the place than currently harvested.

Well, a wonderful castle, nicely renovated with a wellness and a confetence center added. Almost perfect. But the attitude and friendliness of the personal of the hotel remains the same as thirty years ago: below average. The food is ok, the waiters also, but the reception... :(

I visited as external guest this hotel, that is, I didn't stay overnight, so no experience about rooms. But, during this day I had the opportunity to use the spa and the restaurant of the hotel. The restaurant was excellent, finest service, super delicious meals. The spa is quite an average one, with three saunas (with different temperature), a Turkish... More

We were in Autumn at La Contessa, and it had a very nice ambient, watching the yellow leaved trees from the luxurious wellness department. They manage the hotel very professionally. We were late for check-in, and for our dinner, but they waited for us exclusively, and let us have our lunch at 9.30 pm. The hotel rooms shed mediavel ambient.... More

It was our second hotel in the vacation. The hotel and the garden is very nice, perfect. Only the food is little pure. We have tried more hotel in Hungary with 4*, but the food could be better. To have a choice in a breakfast you must weak up early.
