The equipment is four stars but the quality is not. It looks nice at first sight, but when you look into details it is not. The rooms are clean, minimally equipped. The furnitures are not in a good conditions. There is no floor mat, any carpet on the floor, it was super cold. There was only one towel for person, they charged you extra if you asked for one for the spa. The wellnes is really small, but this is what they promised. In the bar there were only one bottle of white wine at 8 pm on Friday evening. And they had no any snacks. The breakfast was also low quality.

We booked a room wit my wife for just one night. We couldn't sleep at all because a bunch of Air Condition System Outdoor unit was under our window. We turned off our AC but it was not that. It was as if a tractor had been buzzing next to my head all night. I asked the receptionist what we can do but he said he can't help at all... We booked the room to sleep a night and we couldn't so my rating is 0.

We where searching for a breakfast and they offer it for 2000HUF. That's not much, so the food quality is not ready to criticize. Eggs, sausage, standard cheese, bread. Minus two points for the coffee!! A tin bucket full with black, handwarm liquid. Disgusting. The third point got burned by the staff: chatting behind the counter rather than refilling, what's visibly empty.

We needed to have meeting space for a group of 16-18 and the Hotel Kristaly was great! They were very helpful and accommodating for our needs. A perfect location, service and refreshments for breaks were available to us. I would recommend this for formal or informal meetings. The coffee shop was a great place as well for meeting with friends. Thanks!

We had a great time in Kristály Hotel during our three day long bicycle tour around Lake Balaton. We spent only one day in the hotel but we are totally satisfied with the kind staff and the delicous breakfast. The hotel is well located close to the centre and Balaton.

Not polite staff, very dirty and noisy place. The enterieur is poor and without conception. The breakfast was simple and not enough. I wondering how a hotel can overlive like this one. I don’t recommend it!

Keszthely is small city on the Balaton lake with minimum quantity of hotels. Hotel Kristaly locate near the lake and only this is plus for hotel. All other bad, room without conditioner, shower don't close, and always water on the floor, the bed isn't comfortable, the breakfast was poor.

Spent 3 nights with my colleague in the hotel working on a festival. Location is good, though not in the centre. Not all room air conditioned. Wifi was weak. Breakfast very basic, with some not fresh items. I found a cherry-pit on the floor of the room and also dust bunnies. Wellness seemed OK, but not used by us. There is a terrace on the roof. No restaurant, but café bar was nice.

We booked two rooms at Admiral Pension and got moved to Hotel Kristaly before our holiday. It is a 3 star hotel, the staff was nice and the rooms were okay too. Although my room was full of insects,bugs, ants .. even in my bed I found all of them... So the next morning I went to the receptionist to tell them my problem and request a cleaning. When I checked the room they did nothing with it so I asked the cleaning lady to hand me over some sort of spray. Even though I told them about the problem , they did nothing... So I needed to clean all the insects on my own. The breakfast was included in the price but they were not so many people and the dining area is tiny so we needed to wait 15-20 minutes in the rush hour (8.30) to get a place to sit. The spa area is also nice although the receptionist forgot to mention that we need to ask her to turn on the saunas and steam cabins. Moreover, I was on the second floor but the wifi was barely working and they could not do anything with it

I am absolute agree with DMNiki review. But lets see. We bought a voucher at Maiutazas.hu. It contains two night stay, with full board. Although the voucher mentioned what 'meals' will happen, it looked rather additional food above the full board, but not :) For first night two baguette and nachos. Was it starter? No. There were no other two course. The breakfast was acceptable but poor selection with low quality. There were no lunch in normal theory, I think one soup is not a lunch, (taste like instant). Of course additional we got one piece of "kuglóf" (cake) later, in the afternoon. After this very meaningful lunch we are very pleased to have dinner. The dinner wasn't so bad as we expected based on out experience, but the desert was not worth mentioning. In general my feeling was when I saw the food it is a joke (other face too) and where is the "hidden camera". We were very disappointed and I felt we were screw with the full board. This worth one star for them. Basically the room was good, the heating was working well. In our room there was LCD TV. The bed was hard, and the pillows... I have never seen such a thick pillow like 3-4 pillow. So we can't use it for sleeping. Towels were changed in the second day but dustbin was leave full and no cleaning. Spa: it has a small wellness department, there is only one jacuzzi (maybe 8person space), we were lucky because there were a few people in there so we can use what we want. The saunas were small too but good, one of each type. The bar was overpriced, and once I had to paid more then I should have. I thought maybe the tip is included but not. Most of the staff were kind. I wouldn't choose this place again, for this price I would get much better.
