“Good hotel... with an awful food”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

The hotel has made a good impression upon arrival. It was clean, with nicely arranged public places in the corridors. Clean room, quiet location, nice staff.

Also the city itself has made a nice impression - quiet (out of season), fresh... I felt deep serenity when we were walking nearby the lake... a feeling of a good rest after noisy and busy Budapest.

All good impressions were gone when we couldn't find a good place to eat in Fonyod (maybe because it was out of the season) and decided to eat at the hotel's restaurant. The soup of the house was made out of Mivina (quickly made soups from the pack). I've ordered a salad of cucumber with sour cream and was looking for this fresh dish... and was negatively surprised to see pickled cucumbers with sour cream on the plate... This combination I could never imagine and would not recommend to try.

The breakfast was awful as well. The cheese was 'made of paper and plastic', as well as sausages.

Reviewed April 6, 2013

We were driving through Hungary at night, and decided with my wife to stip and sleep at Hotel Balaton: we were accepted by a very nervous lady who did not make us feel welcome at all, we were not shown to our room and we were given the wrong WI FI password!! Once in the room the heating was not working, and no towels were to be found in the room. The next day when we confronted the General Manager Dr. Pohl we were treated with great disrespect and arrogance and literally thrown out of the door, because we asked for discount given all of the oroblems we had with hotel and bedroom condition. We asked to pay by credit card and they said " cash only" and when we finally paid we were not even given a receipt. Dr. Pohl said please do not come back!! Never ever we have been treated like this in 35 years of travelling. STAY AWAY!!

Room Tip: Be sure the room has HEATING and TOWELS in bathroom
