“Great value for the money”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We spent 7 days at this hotel. The hotel has excellent location: lake Balaton and the center of the town is 5 min walking distance. The staff was friendly and and room was clean, but hot and noisy.
Anyway, definetly one of the best hotels in Keszthely

We booked a 2-night package with my girlfriend, which included buffet breakfast, parma ham sandwich on the day of arrival, a 3-course candle-lit dinner on the second day, wellness centre usage via a coupon scheme for just about 85 Euros. I've stayed at the hotel before, in 2007. Since then, the wellness centre has been renovated and among other things, a jacuzzi was added, to our delight.

However, the room we were assigned was the hottest one I've ever slept in. We both woke up at night many times, gasping for air and drinking water before being able to go to sleep again.

The weather was very hot during our visit, so the conclusion is that if you'll stay at this hotel, make sure to choose its air-conditioned rooms (EUR 8 per room per night, as the staff told us when we checked out) in hot weather.

I may stay at this hotel again, but definitely not in hot weather.

Room Tip: Get the air-conditioned ones for EUR 8 per night extra.

My wife and I stayed for three nights over New Year's, our second visit. The hotel has recently upgraded their wellness facilities to impressive effect--we particularly enjoyed the beautiful salt room and private jacuzzi--as well as the stylish, contemporary ground floor bar. The breakfast bar and service was also very good with a wide array of options. The bedrooms are less impressive compared with the wellness facilities and new bar, but were comfortable enough. Recommended.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel but we don't recomend it to anyone. The food is terrible (like in a school cafeteria), our room and the overall design of the hotel is from the '80s, the wellness section was also 'weak'. It doesn't worth 3 stars IMHO.

We spent 3 days at this hotel in October, in a beautiful autumn time. The center of the city Keszthely is 5 min walk, the Lake Balaton even less than that. Good restaurants around. The hotel has a good wellness center as well, very nice breakfast service, and friendly staff. I'd recommend for anybody for short or long stay.
