Good rest, good food, nice environment,wonderful Lake Balaton,appropriate price / value ratio,nice support staff,parking by car is difficult for many guests, The hotel is located next to the magnificent Tagore Promenade.
The hotel building is not the newest but generally clean. Staff is kind and really attentive. The private beach is close but not suitable for kids below 4-6 yrs. (There is a great beach nearby). Half board eating was on a good level.
I was afraid of booking here after reading some negative reviews here. There were 8 people in our party and we reserved 3 “superior” rooms. Yes the hotel has a “dated” look and the rooms were a bit on the small side, but it didn’t affect our stay at all. Remember, you don’t go to Balatonfured to stay in a hotel room all day. The staff were friendly, professional and if there was any problems, they tended to them immediately. We requested a daily room cleaning (at no extra cost) and our room was immaculate and we had fresh towels every day. The meals are buffet style. We had breakfast and dinner each day. The food was good and everyone found something every time we sat down to eat. And despite some reviews, they never stopped bringing trays of food out. The beach area was smaller than the pay strand next door, but it was still large enough to accommodate everyone that preferred the lake (as we did) to the hotel pool. There was a good atmosphere with live music in the lobby in the evenings. We just wished the bar would’ve stayed open a bit later. Overall our stay was quite pleasant. The other guests were friendly and courteous. We will defiantly stay here again the next time we visit Balatonfured. viszontlátásra!…
Despite decent private beach and pool area, hotel is very old and needs serious renovation. Fighting for a parking spot is horror, waiting for elevators takes forever. Rooms are small, carpet is old, furniture is garbage, everything is truly reminiscent of the 1970s era.
Met expectations classic old socialist hotel design located next to park on Lake Balaton centrally, and everything worked e.g. tv, wifi, pool, bar in lobby, food and location; not too busy after school holidays ended, early September (for those with families, plenty of activities etc. in house and outside). Room was fine in all aspects, think having a Danubius Hotels card helped in getting a front room on 2nd floor. Food selection for both breakfast and dinner was quite good and would also satisfy vegetarians plenty of choices. Bar with snacks too in the lobby, access to strand or Balaton water's edge 50m away and both outside/inside pools good from early a.m.
