Reviewed August 29, 2013

This hotel is old, but well kept. Family nice, and restaurant has decent food.
The hotel is not on a desirable part of the lake....very run down area.
The family took good care of us. Breakfast was unremarkable, the coffee was cold,and tasteless.
I would have preferred to skip it altogether.

Room Tip: Ask for from facing garden.

A very friendly family run hotel, a real jewel so hard to find nowadays. Has all the features a mid-sized hotel should, and the staff is very motivated and attentive. They were also very flexible and did their best to fulfil our wishes.
They serve abundant breakfast with fresh vegetables. Thanks to the beautiful garden ajoining the restaurant you can aslo eat outside. We haven't tried the restaurant for lunch or dinner (we usually eat out) but checked the menu and the prices and the variety were quite convincing. The other thing we liked very much is the cleanliness of the whole property, the garden and the rooms likewise. Speaking of the garden, it's well looked after and has some facilities like table tennis, a climbing frame for children and sunbeds. We valued the closed parking facility and the vicinity of a beach with fairly few people.
The only negative was the short beds, I couldn't stretch my legs with my 176cm.

It is a bit far away from center but close to the lake and has good territory and restaurant. Kids can play on the territory and still are under your attention.
The area around is quite and nice but in case you want to eat outside the hotel you should walk ~10-15 minutes.
Prices in restaurant are around 2-3K forrints (10 Euro) for main dish.

Room Tip: Family apartments on the first floor are the best however they are more expensive. We were lucky to...

Nice, peaceful and small hotel with beautiful green garden.
Little bit far away from Siofok center but ideal for family holiday with children.
Price of 40 eur for double room with breakfast is really great.
Breakfast is very basic but enough and delicious.
Rooms are big and clean with great balcons and bath.You can enjoy listening a birds song from your balcon.
Balaton lake is very close , about few minutes walk from hotel.
There is a free parking on the site -street side, but you can pay 3 eur per day for closed backyard parking.

Room Tip: Room number 29 is great !!!

We booked a room at hotel Kentaur for one night in late June 2011. As we were just passing by on our way to Croatia, we were looking for a cheap but good option for spending the night in Siofok. We paid around 50 EUR for a double room, breakfast included.

The hotel is situated about 3-4 kilometres from the actual center of Siofok, so those looking for a hotel near the night-time action of the town (Siofok is apparently quite a party-town in the summer) or do not have access to a car, should probably consider some other place. But for us, who arrived by car and were looking for a quiet place to spend the night, this hotel was an excellent choice. Parking was possible on the hotel property for a couple of EUR per day.

When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by a nice lady, who I assume was the owner. She was very helpful throughout the stay (provided us with a map, borrowed a hairdryer etc) and really made us feel at home.

The room was nice and tidy, but the decor and furniture were quite dated to say the least. Still the look and feel of the rooms fit very well with the overall "theme" of the hotel, which can probably be described as a "80s summer cottage" vibe. The walls were quite thin and some noise could be heard, but as there weren't a lot of other guests this didn't affect our stay too much. Free wi-fi was also available (password available from the staff) and worked nicely throughout the stay!

Breakfast was served in the restaurant of the hotel, and was a basic breakfast buffet (bread, condiments, cereal, vegetables, yoghurt, boiled eggs etc.). Nothing special, but sufficient.

Overall we were very pleased with our choice of hotel, as it suited our needs perfectly and offered excellent value for money. For party-goers or people without cars, this hotel cannot be recommended because of the somewhat remote location. But if you are looking for a real bargain and a slightly different and more personal hotel experience, try Hotel Kentaur!
