Bad experiences: - NO balcony and NO safe in the superior room in spite of the ad promised. - Air conditioning NOT included in the price - LAZY, rude male staff (one of them just playing online games on the computer at the front desk all day long and gets angry if a guest 'disturbs' him with question) - Serious...

We stayed a weekend here and I have to admit that we've had better. The hotel itself is quite old-school with wifi not working properly. Room was ok but very standard. The courtyard was nice with parking space. Breakfast was very poor and refilled very slowly. For the money we paid (although I understand it's high season) I would have... More

The proprietor of this family establishment is named Nandor, and he will go the extra mile to make sure you are taken care of. We came here from Budapest swearing that we would never come to Hungary again due to a bad experience at the Danubius Astoria (see review). One afternoon here completely changed our minds.

Nothing noticeable about this hotel. Price is not exceptional, and you can get better place for the same money like hotel Hotel Del Porto, next door with its own swimming pool.
