Balatonföldvár is one of the few resorts on Balaton, which maintained some of the fleur of the bathing culture of the 30th of the XX. Century.
Some of the private villas got renewed (some of them are private, some others are operated as pension or hotel).But do not expect an intact museum resort there.
Te FÖNIX Hotel is the result of a nice restoration work of a building from the early XX. Century. The refurbishing took place in 2001.
Its location is close to the (old) main road along the Balaton – less noise, than earlier (a highway was built some years ago taking the transit traffic away).
But rooms facing on that side are quite noisy.
We stayed in the hottest days of this season, and the rooms without air-conditioners caused sleepless nights.
A small pool, a private tennis court, a nicely managed restaurant, good breakfast and helpful staffs made our evaluation 3 + ½. –even if the hotel is not a **** category.More
