“Clearly the nicest hotel in Balatonfured”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

This hotel is actually a small 'annex' of the Anna Grand Hotel which is a larger more 'mainstream' hotel a couple blocks away. Ipoly is a newly renovated older building which has retained 'classic' features - very high ceilings, wood trip, large hallways etc, yet with modern furnishings. There's no doubt this is the most 'upscale' place to stay in Balatonfured which, overall is more of a 'family-oriented' area. The location is excellent and set back just a bit from the 'waterfront' which is great because there it's usually crowded and noisy. Ipoly guests have access to pool/spa at Anna Grand and also there's a very nice, small sauna and whirlpool in Ipoly itself. Only 14 rooms total in Ipoly so may be hard to book and for this area it's considered expensive...we paid almost $200 (U.S.) / night, but if you can afford it and want a high-end, 'Western-quality' experience it's the only option and I'd recommend it over all other options in the area.

Reviewed August 15, 2010

Having abandoned another hotel locally due to it's poor quality, the Ipoly residence was quite a find.

While expensive, we were able to negotiate the price of one nights stay from EUR240 to EUR200 for 3 people. The hotel only opened in March of this year, and you can tell some of the service that they are still new. For example, for EUR200 a night I'd expect a shower curtain and some reasonable soap (instead we had soap from a dispenser and a wet floor).

The champagne breakfast is amazing, and the service was very good.

Loved the location, although parking is very difficult - you'll need someone to show you where the carpark is.

Would stay again, recommended.
