Wellness Hotel Kalocsa
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Kalocsa
Reviewed October 1, 2008

The wellness hotel Kalocsa sells itself as a classy wellness hotel, offering healthy spa treatments and wellness programmes. In reality it's a decent but old hotel with a couple of sauna installations in the basement and a some beauty treatments that hqve seen better days.
Kalocsa is a nice little town and well worth a short visit, the Bishop's library and a walk through town are thoroughly enjoyable.
It's quite good value for money: for two persons, we paid 400 Euro for four nights half board; that included half board, drinks and several wellness treatments (massages, pedicure, facials)
The hotel rooms are quite worn and not luxurious, definitely not four stars. The whole wellness complex (a basement spa with a whirlpool, two saunas, a steambath and a tiny swimming pool) as well as the rooms set aside for massages and beauty treatments seem a bit self made and not well though out. The cosmetic service and beauty treatments are quite good though. Food is surprisingly good (even though in buffet form).
Summary: If you are looking for a luxurious wellness experience to pamper yourself for a few days, do not choose the Wellness Hotel Kalocsa. If you are looking for a good value hotel deal that also allows you to use whirlpool and a sauna as a bonus, you may just want to consider it.

Reviewed November 20, 2007

We stayed at the Wellness Hotel Kalocsa in August, 2007. From the websites descriptions we had expected a very nice hotel with spa.

On the outside the hotel is very beautiful indeed, but the rooms we got were very basic, and they felt like monk's cell in terms of size, although the decor had some charm. Ours were in the back of the courtyard and many of these rooms were very small and had small or no windows. Our next door neighbours kept their door open as they didn't have windows. Fortunately we fared bettter, but it was a far cry from what we had expected. I went with a couple who had expected a double bed or at least side-by-side beds; instead they got two small and separate single beds (see photos).
When we complained and showed the room on the brochure, they said they only had one room like it. We don't know how many rooms (other than the one on the brochure and websites) there are in the main building and if they are better than the ones we got. We offered to pay more for a better room, but the hotel was full. I have uploaded some photos of the hotel and rooms.

As for the spa: it is a basement spa with several sauna and steam rooms and small pools and jacuzzi at different temperatures. It was OK but not very big. Many places in Hungary have natural thermal waters, but I don't think this was one of them.

The hotel service was good and if I had expected what I got, I would have liked it better.

As for the town, it is a charming village. It is a historic Episcopal seat for Catholic Archbishops of Hungary. In fact the hotel is in front of the cathedral and right next to the archiepiscopal library and palace. I wouldn't mind going back or even staying at this hotel now that I know what to expect.
