Hotel Termalkristaly Aqualand
Ranked #4 of 7 Rackeve B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 July 2013

Weekend stay outside of Budapest. Getting to the hotel from the station at Rackeve is an easy 10 minute walk on the flat and no problem with bags.
The Pools and Spa facilities are great and probably of a higher standard than some of those in the city. The reflexology treatment I had was great but the ability to speak English among the Spa staff was very limited. Some hotel staff do speak English quite well.

The bottom of the indoor pool was dirty and the Spa area itself felt a bit dated however outside, it is colourful with numerous pools and a Thermal Spa. Great for kids.

Quiet location in countryside just outside of Rackeve - which is worth a visit.

The room was OK but showing some tiredness. Water pressure seemed to be a problem at certain times of the day with a weak shower flow but we managed

Food was disappointing. The breakfast was limited - the earlier you arrive the better. The weather was hot but not everything on the table seemed to be refrigerated well.

Overall a pleasant experience away from the city but the hotel food and accommodation has room for improvement.

It is a bit off the beaten track but the hotel is worth a visit. About an hours drive from Budapest the hotel is in a nice setting in the countryside with numerous swimming pools and slides etc. Over the back of the park there are two thermal baths which are superb. The hotel itself is good but has signs of beginning to get tired. We were very impressed by the food which is from a help yourself bar but a wide range of choices and good quality. The hotel seemed to close on Sunday night without warning and having been out for the evening we got back at 22.30 and found the hotel locked up with no one on reception. Phone calls did not work but after half an hour we found a rear entrance with a security guard who then let us in. We were attending a wedding at the hotel and it proved to be a good venue with a marquee set up in the grounds. There is a bit of a problem with language but the staff are friendly and tried their best. Room service was a bit hit or miss with rooms not being cleaned until late afternoon and then things were missed, towels not changed etc.

Room Tip: Personally, I would try to get a room to the side where you overlook countryside rather than the swi...

Wonderful spa facility with amazing massages, go see Bea , she seems to know exactly what your body needs to relax. Spend the day steaming and soaking in the healing waters. They also have a waterpark with slides and big pools outside. They have lane swimming inside. Don't miss out on this.

It is a cosy little 4-star hotel of unexpected quality given the relatively quiet southern tip of Csepel island, approximately 1 hourdrive from Budapest downtown, in the romantic little town of Ráckeve. The hotel seems to be part of a thermal spa and pool world complex popular among locals and guest of other lodgings, actually rooms face directly some pools vivid throughout hot summer days. Be prepared for some noisy and crowded daytime in this time of the year. But, as the spa possesses both indoor and outdoor thermal pools, one can count on a comfortable relaxing retreat at other seasons.

The room was spacious, and nice, though some smaller shortcomings were overseen by personnel (cleanness was not complete, a light bulb was broken), a warning sign about service devotion. Reception personnel was helpful still, as well as dining aids.

Dining was usual buffet style, a wide variety of warm breakfast dishes are served (not very common in Hungary!), quite a nice feat given the very small size of the hotel. The same for dinner, although here variety was significantly less than usual or expected for the price and level of the hotel.

A disappointment were complimentary room accessories: no shampoo, soap, pen or sewing was found in the room, only two travel size drugstore items provided (body lotion and tooth paste). Towels were of medium quality too (disappointment, as you would probably use them a lot together with any shampoo, after your numerous pool visits).

Of cource, main attraction of the location is the wealth of water recreation, themal bathing, mingolf, and various activites in the resort as well as dwelling in Ráckeve proper.

All in all, it was unexpected to find find such a high profile lodging so deep in Csepel island, still, I hope that this quality will prevail, unlike many Hungarian hotels, where long term service enthusiasm seems often lacking.
