Reviewed June 12, 2014

We booked here because it is close to the train station, has a pool, and - perhaps the determining factor - there was a very attractive offer on b****ing.c*m!
We were very happy with our choice, very friendly and helpful on arrival and throughout our short (three nights) stay.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor romm, handy for the pool and the sauna.

The location is excellent, being less than 10 minutes walk from the Balatonfoldvar railway station but also far enough away from the noise of the main centre. Our room was clean and tidy, with a newish AC unit. The pool here was a real bonus to refresh in after the madness of the (very shallow) lake. We can't comment on the in house restaurant, but highly recommend Manna Mia Cafe which is a five minute walk away.

We just arrived and they've told us our room is no longer available and have booked us into a different hotel each night of our holiday .... all hotels we would never have stayed in. Not even a courtesy call! We have also been told by locals that in history of hotels in the area these cowboys are notorious. Be warned!

The Főnix Hotel is near Lake Balaton at Balatonfoldvar (3 minutes stroll from the lake and the railway station). It is spotlessly clean and friendly, and everything works, although breakfast service is a bit slow as the end of breakfast time approaches. The food in the restaurant is excellent.

This is a very friendly reasonably priced Hotel in a renovated old Villa. The staff is very helpful, warm and knowledgeable. There is a pool which seems to be a favorite for children. The lake is a 5 min walk if that is your preference. The Hotel has several air conditioned rooms which you should specify in advance as your preference. Same price! Also, the Restaurant of the Hotel is very good and reonably priced. You can also rent bicycles in the Hotel, even electric ones are available. Finally, for those interested, the Hotel can accomodate small meetings (30-60 people) all year round. Higly recommended!

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.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with aironditioner - in case you stay on hot nights. And avoid rooms facing the m...
