We checked in for one night since we visited the cave baths down the road about 200 meters, the hotel is brand new and very clean.
Upon entering the receptionist was on the telephone and did not even acknowledge our assistance, if it were not for the masseur walking by who greeted us and gave us the sheets to fill in, who knows how long we woudl have stood there.
We checked in and went to the room, it was clean, orderly and free WLAN was available, we were hungry but had to wait for 6PM for dinner, where we had a choice of a buffet for 4000 HUF per person or Ala Carte.
The buffet was excellent, as a meat lover, there was everything to include ribs, simply delicious!
Our servers were in great spirits despite we were the only one there for the first 30 minutes. Very helpful and one even spoke to us, which was the first time in the hotel where anyone took any interest.
The mini bar was empty, they said since they are so new they did not stock them yet, but had nothing to stock when we asked them to.
The next morning we went to the wellness area, a great let down, the Infra Red Sauna was not working, the steam bath was not on and the jacuzzi was not turned on, the pool is to small to swim and the fitness room is, well a small room, very small.
We left and got ready for breakfast, again, a great buffet. When we went to mention our room, the staff said "we know who you are" and escorted us into the dinning room. Not sure what that meant but they spoke English for the first time so I guess they heard I was an American, not sure but it was good to feel at home and be served with such attention.
All in all a great stay, great staff (except for the receptionists) upon checking out the desk manager or hotel manager and two others receptionists were speaking and I had to insist they stop so we could check out, we seemed to bother them.
The location is perfect for the cave baths and very comfortable.
