4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

a good hotel at the Balaton lake, good food , friendly personel, and the lake and the place Balatonfured were great, made also a boattrip to another place, just a few minor points of the hotel, no airco in our room which made it quite hot and the little bar was closing at 22.00 which was a bit early , yet a very nice place and hotel to visit

Room Tip: if you can afford it take a room with airco in summertime

The hotel atmosphere is grim and tense... The rooms are old and dirty. The carpet is worn and stained! The unbearable heat in the rooms!!! The staff is moody, tense!
The hotel's management inept and arrogant!

I have been staying at the Annabella at the end of April, which would mean at the beginning of the season. This is practically the most important information about the hotel as it is a seasonal property and has no central heating. I did not experience all the services, but the rooms were comfortable, I especially like the small terrace. The furniture and some ficture are quite dated, but that seems characteristic for Danubius properties. The property seemed quite ideal for families as there are entertainment areas, which must be quite nice during summer, including the indoor and outdoor pools, the grill garden and the playground. Its real advantage is the proximity to the Balaton and Tagore Avenue, which makes it an ideal property for sailers and holiday makers alike. The staff is well trained and I did not find any issues with Food and Beverage. However, when checking the Rack rates during high season, my first thought was, that I would certainly not want to pay those rates. There are properties with a better rate-value ratio. If offered a good rate, I would maybe return...

The professional photos are a bit deceiving, the hotel resembles the architecture and design of the socialist era: rectangular shapes, functional rooms, simple and outdated furniture etc. The same applies to the kitchen: no special cuisine at all (boring, everyday meals). The bathrooms are nicely renovated, which is a good point however. Also, the hotel is close to Balaton and the sailing piers. Thanks to the reasonable price, it is still a good deal for a short stay.

Wonderful location close to public transportation, shops, and dining. The hotel has indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a private beach at the beautiful Lake Balaton.

The staff at Hotel Annabella was pleasant and helpful in every way. The free wi-fi was limited to the downstairs lobby area I think - I could not use it in my room upstairs.

Room was smaller than my bathroom. I expected a bit bigger room for a price of superior room. There is no air conditioning in the room and the carpet was dirty, small plastic pieces were all around in the room. This hotel is the worst I have ever been. I got much better room for 160 USD/day anywhere else in the world. Staff were helpful and friendly but that was not enough to stay more than a hour at here.

We stayed at Hotel Annabella with my family for 3 nights. Very good location, lots of bars and restaurants around. Rooms are clean but there is no air-conditioning. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There was a buffet dinner and breakfast included in our rooms price. The food was very good but not to much vegetarian options. There is no WiFi in the room just in the lobby. I didn't like the furniture its very old. On my opinion the hotel needs some good renovation or modernization. All in all it was a good hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side of the car park can be noisy.
