Very clean hotel situated in a large park on the shore of lake Balaton, with an excellent indoor swimming pool, friendly staff and very good choice of food. In few words: excellent 4-star hotel.
Nice big room, nice bathroom, nice environment, good wellness facilities, rich breakfast Staff behaviour (not friendly), poor pool bar (rude staff, no warm food, only sandwich)
nice spa center, nice parking place staff too official with little sens for hospitality, no free internet wlan
Ideally located next to Lake Balaton with excellent air-conditioned rooms and a balcony. Contrary to the details on the website, the hotel does not have its own sandy beach. There is an area of sand in the park area near the lake side - not quite the same. Also the dinner was a buffet arrangement which I did not expect at a 4* hotel. I was expecting a restaurant with waiter service and an a proper menu.
The location; swimmingpools The restaurant: the selection of food; no food for children; very expensive compared to the prices in other Balaton area restaurants
outdoor pool. nice facilities.
Very nice location, good choice for relax & spa quite expensive food price
no annoucement about the running construction (new part of hotel) in time of booking and receiving the room 5-10 meters far from the construction in the same price with any other possibility to change the room in the same level (price dropped BUT after long discussion with the staff ) = Recommended BUT for the future - no such experience for others in this year
nice breakfast, comfortable room
1) The rooms are uniquely designed and very attractive 2) Hotel breakfasts were excellent. 3) Hotel staff are so helpful and kind. 4) The restaurant Amigo near the hotel was excellent. 1)not comfortable as a relaxing spa. The spa and the swimming pool are too small. Do they really use real thermal mineral water? Water looked clean but it was not explained how often it is changed. Not sufficient facilities as a spa and wellness. Not very many activities within the hotel, and on the second day we were so bored. 2) Not good air-conditioner. Too cold to stay in the winter. Hot shower was not working, either in my room. 3) i wish they had free transportation service to the station. (on a rainy day, guests must walk the muddy road to the station) 3) we (two) were charged on our credit card upon arrival at the hotel. I hope we were not double-charged.
The decor of the whole hotel was really nice. Even though we stayed at the hotel during June, the cafe/bar was not open.
Rooms of special characters, very nice and special hotel. Sauna, swimming pool and jacuzzi were great. The room was very clean. Air condition was great. Great restaurant Amigo near by hotel. Facilities of room and hotel were very good. The location near train station, some noisy. Breakfast after 9 am was sometimes bad, before 9 am it was good.
Position is good, far enough from the noisy Siofok main street. They have 4 free unattended parking spots right in front of the hotel plus some other beyond a gate (need to pay a daily local tax per person). This is the best BestWestern hotel I've seen around the world; every room is unique and has its own style. The jacuzzi in the spa is very nice and also the sauna.They have a free to use coffee machine running 24 hours. We had a problem with the shower and they fixed it the same day. 24 hours front desk. The double room was incredibly small. In the spa they have a hot jacuzzi for 6 persons and a bigger pool for 20 persons incredibly cold, it's kinda nonsense. One night we had some heavy rain outside and...even inside the room.
It was petfectly clean, the staff is very nice, the hotel _does_ look like you see it on the picures, the room was actually set up for the two of us, enough towels, etc, whirpool, swimmingpool, a great traditional Hungarian breakfast - all these included in the price, coffee, tea, orange juice and microwave :D at your disposal all the time at a nice central hall in the hotel with a little library. Airconditioning/heating also installed in the bathroom and the mainroom. I am tryly pleased, and recomend it to everyone, will be back there myself. The sleeping pillows were too big for my taste but I still slept well.
Noisy location,not so clean,too old,poor breakfast
The staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were cleaned and towel changed everyday. The Public rooms were very nice. Very small rooms, No Resteraunt or cafe open, Bar not open, Breakfast not very interesting
very bad service, low quality facilities, over-priced, over-rated very bad service, low quality facilities, over-priced, over-rated
Relaxed atmosphere ,Private beach.Outside areas. No other pillows except feather which is a problem for people with allergies.
Clean comfortable rooms, pleasant staff, a little out of the centre of Siofok. I rated value as fair only because we didn't use many of the hotels facilities on this occasion.
Beautiful wellness facilities!
It was clean and quiet. The aircon worked well. The spa facilities were ok. The buffet breakfast had plenty to choose from. The hotel is overpriced. They gave us a seaview room with no sea view; when asked they said it faced the sea! Directions and distances marked on the road from the station to the hotel were misleading, which was extremely frustrating.
Quality of the hotel The checkout time at 10am is too early.
Hotel looked new, well cleaned, lots of possiblities to relax/wellness. Hotel was good, only they could have invested more in staff, they barely spoke english, only at the reception a bit, and we had several diners, lunch and breakfasts in the hotel, and we only ran into one waiter who actually spoke good english. Thats maybe acceptable for a cheap hotel, but I'd expected better from a 4**** one
I booked a room with balcony and I received one without. After I specified this they offered to give me the right one
Very nice staff, very nice and clean room. Anytime again!
Vey comfortable, clean and nice hotel. Good parking possibilites. A family hotel, only a lot of children running around. Not to recommend to stay there if you are not with your family. This hotel private beachside was close to a joke..very small and crowded with people. Wifi only in public areas.
The service from the staff in the restaurant was excellent.The food was excellent. All written information about the hotel and surroundings should be in english too.The private beach is good but kan kan be developed.For ex. the bar open times, the flowers in better shape. More sunbeds
small breakfast, no hairdryer
The lake. The hotel is looking better in the photos!
First floor could be a bit noisy when they prepare for breakfast
Breakfast; to see the bright thing of the stay Old hotel, extremely old furniture no renovation in a long while, no bug treatment in even a longer while, bugs and mosquitos in the room, hadn't made contact with them in a while till reaching this..."hotel". Thank God we stayed only one night and during that night we slept only 2 or 3 hours because we were affraid not to get biten by any of the few spiders that were enjoing the holiday with us... Very interesting how this "hotel" got his 3* while other's down the street that looked a lot better had only 2 or the ones that had 3* were exactly how a 3* hotel should be (at least on the outside). PS:we came from innsbruck that was almost 820 km away, being not for that we would have got back in the car and driven right away from there
Location very close to the beach, 24h reception A little bit of overpriced and not too clean. Small renovations would make the place much more agreeable
Staff in the Venusz Hotel vas helpful. The hotel have good location. nothing
Location was the only thing to recommend it The rooms were very poorly furnished, the toilets smelt, the rooms were tiny and the corridors lacked any picturs or charm. Worst of all the hotel staff allowed drunken behaviour from a lot of guests and did nothing to curb the noise even at 5.00 in the morning! Breakfast was limited (orange jiuce for example was coloured water). We have stayed in hotels for very many years and this is by far the worst we have stayed in. In no way was this a three star facility.
near town centre price at bar 3 times the price in other bars.
Very good location, friendly staff Poor comfort: very poor bath room equipment, very very noisy from neighbouring rooms and street, smoky smell however asked non-smoking room. would definitely choose another hotel when staying in Siofok next time
The personnel is great, English speaking and very helpful. Other that that, Location, Location, Location..couldn't ask for a better one. The breakfast was somehow not so diverse.
- We arrived between 8 and 9 p.m. and the only meal which their restaurant could offered was pizza. Please note, that both restaurant and hotel do not accept credit cards for payment (guess all in the center do so). The hotel central situation means very compact area of hotels, pubs, restaurants, etc. so for those who is looking for calm and relaxation and to avoid crowds and fast food smell- better choose a bit distant location.
comfort, pleasent stuff
Good position,relaxed atmosphere,friendly helpful staff
The positions and listenes. The room is small. Exchange rate is not displayed.
Very good breakfast with nice staff
Quiet, good breakfast, nice bathroom English speaking personnel
The included breakfast was very good with a variety of meat, cheeses, bread, veggies coffee, tea, juice etc. The staff were very pleasant and free internet access and proximity to Lake Balaton (5 minute walk) were great! One night my room had a very large spider in it, but I think that is due to the fact that rooms in Europe don't have screens on the windows, and so the "wildlife" comes in.
very nice hotel, there is a securised parking and it is not too far from the beach. It's either not too far from the ferry (which is very useful if you want to go to the other side of the lake) and it was one of the rare hotels containing free rooms and located near Balaton.
Great location, very friendly and helpful staff
Close to the lake, helpful staff, good breakfast, good wellness area, close to the center, room has balcony A/C broke down, asked the staff to fix it 3 times, never happened and never said a word why or apologized. Mini bar fridge did not work. These sorts of things are annoying when +38 Celsius outside. rooms are little small.
wellnes centre parking possibilities - it is not nice at the tennis corner..
hi i have used your booking site many times but this time i found this hotel to be only 2 star because many of the facilities were either broken or out of use could you please pass my unhappyness onto the hotel and see what they can sugest as compensation many thanks norman and edina
The hotel is right on the shore of Lake Balaton and close to the center of Siófok The room would have needed some refurbishment
this was my second stay. a lovely hotel with such helpful and friendly staff.
Good location Refrigerator and air conditioner not working probably
the location , uhe hotel staff verey friendly all are excellent
Helpfull staff, good indoor wellness center
Location (on the beach) was very good; cnn on tv; helpful desk staff; good choice at breakfast; Check out by 10am is very early; although staff were helpful, no-one spoke very good English; we were given one of the few rooms without a balcony; indoor pool was very small
This Hotel is a good value for the money. Great restaurant and friendly staff. If I come back to Ballaton I will definitely stay in this Hotel again.
spa and pool facilities, sun deck on the hotel roof with the gergeous view of Balaton lake - unfortunately it wasn't warm enough to sunbath very dull breakfast
fine place, friendly staff, all in all fine, will stay again
Location, right on lake as described. Thought food expensive. Ate elsewhere. Have reason to believe that we were not shown the full menu,as on the day we left we saw a different menu on a hotel board on the quay side of the hotel which was more extensive.
spa facilities (i.e. pool, sauna) included in the price are a big advantage, great location just on the Balaton shore basic breakfast
excellent swimming pool 25m
Fantastic fun spa area with multiple types of sauna, good rooms, very clean. The food was good,but not traditional Hungarian, food was rather expensive as well. The location was a taxi drive away from the town
going to the pool and spa the cleaning of the room wasnt very good - they didnt cjanged at all the toweles.
I was pleased it was clean. The food was great and the hotel staff were very respectfull. I made the right choice for going there
Staff was helpful and friendly. English spa services list would be nice
Nothing Extra charges levied for coffee a sachet of jam and a slice of bread even though everyone of our party had paid extra for breakfast.The hotels unclear pricing over food made us feel uncomfortable and cheated.
Wonderful staff, good place, good people. Recomendated for all guests of town.
I liked how the room looked like, when I entered it. I have also enjoyed its position (not in the noisy area) No cleaning service during 3 days stay. Toilet was very dirty. Bed clothes: dirty and ugly smell.
Location is ok, parking, cable tv Small room with small and uncomfortable beds, overpriced for what it is (although it was high season, the rate wasn't justified), as often the case it looks a lot nicer on the web site, in the summer the room is very hot (it's under the roof) and air conditioning didn't work, and finally on Booking.com this is rated 4 stars!! Unbelievable...
Pension is near core of city (300-400m) There was some difficulties to obtain a bill for hotel services but in the final I received a bill. If you insist, you can get a bill from the hotel bar for hotel services. So, attention at the low respect !
Very bad. If you are with Family with kids do not go there. Nothing good to say. The room was stink, the bed covers were not clean, no elevator. We reach at 23.00 there was no one to recive us, all was dark and closed.
stuff was very friendly, and it is near beach and night life, but far enough to sleep well.
one of the sheets was not clean upon arrival, however they immediately replaced when requested. towels were small and of poor quality.
Good location - quiet zone, but only 5 min. walk from beach and city center We stayed in apartment - it was new apartment, but very dirty. So we asked again for re-cleaning (it was no problem for them) but still not clean enough. Kitchen furnishing - not enough for cooking.
The hotel is perfectly situated near the main (bar) street, the beach and the train and bus station They never cleaned our room, we didn't mention it because there were no lockers available and we liked that they never visited our room
It was in the perfect situation, a very short walk from the harbour and lake beach, set in shady woods. The nearby park was also lovely. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful at reception. We had a large balcony at the back, but most balconies were standard size. The hotel was easy to find, and we parked free of charge in a secure area. We also liked the many restaurants and cafes which were a short walk away. We thought the breakfast was below average, compared to many other hotels we have visited. The bedroom was rather plain and a bit too small.
Friendly staff. Terrible selection of juices for breakfast.
Great location, close to lake & restaurants. Nice quiet street. Great indoor heated pool. Breakfast wasn't so good. More variety would be good, such as fresh fruit & hot meats.
Very nice pool with thermal water, good breakfest Scary invasion of tiny flying insects in our room. When we turn on Raid electric, thousands dead small insects rains down on everything in our room whole night. After massive work cleaning service, second night was ok. And although we had windows closed, the third night was insects in our room again.
good location, clean but nothing special avarage hotel with a maximum 3 star level
