Reviewed August 5, 2012

this hotel is just a new experience, low 3* but very good value for money. I am glad we tryed it, but would not like to go there again.
Nothing specific tro complian about, but as well, apart for the very original idea, there is nothing specific to prize.

Just come back today from this litttle gem of a holiday. The area that the botel is located on is so relaxing. On the danube and you find a kind of beach to relax on. The weather was great. The botel was everything that we expected. The room was clean a fair size and easy to get to at all times. The breakfast was basic but enough to set you up for the day, all areas of the botel were clean. The menu was limited but we enjoyed the food. Especially the platter for two. The staff were friendly and always helpful. The waiter named 'Peter' was great at keeping our drinks topped up and ensuring that we were happy. The reception staff were very helpful and answered all our questions. There was use of a free internet computer and free wi-fi. There was a boat service that took us in to the city each day, approx £3 each way. On the days we didnt go to the city we enjoyed walking around the area where the botel is. We also enjoyed sun bathing on the jetty's and the beach area's. We were so impressed with this break that we will return next year, not for a main holiday but a few days away to relax. Finally the taxi service from the airport though pre booked was also attentive and ensured we got to the botel and airport at the correct times.

Room Tip: I think the rooms that are even are the rooms that back on to the dannube side. We were in room 216...

clean rooms. Nice idea. There was NO internet although it promised it, and the receptionist was playing with the idea trying to fool around and saying that since Danube level is changing internet is not available!! or saying that only Hungarian laptop can detect the internet!!
Morning time during breakfast, there was lack of English speaking people, and it caused some not so pleasant experience. People in back were nagging about us asking for breakfast since a guy who seemed to be the owner of boat asked them to come and help us. The toilet was dirty when we went to our room.

Looks like to be an exciting place, a great hotel idea, but, but... Not at all that expected steam boat atmosphere....
Looks like the hotel team has lost their enthusiasm... Stayed there for two nights, but no cleaning of the room. Poor breakfast service... Tee water with coffee taste... What should be warm food was rather not at all warm...

We stayed at the hotel for one night (dental treatment), then went for a 2week holiday to Heviz and on returning, we stayed for another 2 nights (completing dental treatment). We have stayed in this hotel before and liked it, that was why we returned. It is quiet, has a lovely view, the staff is nice. The rooms are bright, not very large but adequate. There is no hairdryer, but on asking at reception, they will give you one. I missed a safe in the room. But there is wifi and it worked well.

Room Tip: Ask for a "downstairs room" if you don't want to climb stairs with your luggage.
