“Best hotel I been to in Balaton area...”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

I spent 2 nights, 3 days at this hotel.... It shows its a Ramada, in high standard of rooms and overall apparance of hotel... If I compare it to other Ramadas I have been to (5 in total ) its average...

What is very good :

Wifi in rooms
Quality of breakfast and dinner if you ask half board.
Large car parking facilities
Very nice not crowded beach... It is true that they do allow outsiders in the beach for a fee, however since the public beach is next door, not many people come who are not from hotel.
Free safe use in room.

Weaknesses :

There are 4 modern lifts, but it its busy with 13 floors you have to wait a long time..
If you are disabled and want to go to beach, dont come to this hotel.. The beach is 5-10 minutes walk with stairs, and not accesable by car as not access.

We had a few technical problems in room, called reception , 5 minutes and technical staff in room and solved issues., I seen no sigh of bad management in this hotel mentioned in previous reviews, perhaps its fixed in meantime... ;)) I can only recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for as high as possible... And remember to ask as we where told we did not get a room with a vi...

Staff very helpful,breakfast below , expected from a 4*, very short of staff at reception , at restaurant , and on the ,,hungarian beach,, what belongs to the hotel - outside guests also allowed , the public areas are not clean, the terrace area also not clean , no staff to make it....etc etc ....it would be very long to continue....but the main problem is the management. This hotel is not managed at all. Every part of the hotel is a chaos, all staff try to help on it, but without a teamleader or well trained staff its a disaster... Must inform the hotel head office in the USA to check this situation and help to solve all the problems. The hotel itself would be a very nice place with a strong and very well trained staff!

The hotel is located a 10 minutes away from the lake, you have to use an overpass to get to Balaton. The building has probably seen great days once in the past, but time has passed - the design and the interior all reminded me of old time. The room was pretty small, more suitable for a short business stay.

I am currently having my pre-vacation with my family. Chose this hotel because I stayed here before some 5 years ago. I had a sort of okay rating from my previous stay. I wish I had not chosen this place now, cause it has been one of the worst stays ever. Hence the staff is friendly, I think that is all one can say. Rooms are tiny, bed in the room is a joke, no room cleaning during a stay. Dinner and breakfast is another mess, where nobody pays attention to you. If you wanna find a table, the staff does not care, doesn't move, sometimes it feels like guesta should set and clean the tables for themselves. Service tables are not re-filled, so if you wish to get the variety of all available meal you should be there at sharp 6pm when dinner starts. In general it hardly deserves 3 stars. Would never recommend this place not even to my worst enemies. This place is simply an example of anti-customer attitude.

We got the last room on the top floor of the building. It was a twin room, but hardly enough space for 1 person. I tried to change the room, they said there isn't any double room that they could give to us, so we tried again, this time attending the reception with luggage. Suddenly they found a room to be cleaned within an hour for us. Carpets are dirty. No change of bed linen in 4 days. Daily cleaning doesn't include wiping the mirror or vacuuming the bathroom floor. Breakfast is the same every day, no change. Coffee at breakfast is just bad. Kind service in the restaurant though. Dinner was also kind of boring, but quality and taste was acceptable. The sunbeds on the beach are dirty, you need to pay for them and carry them by yourself. Limited drinks selection on the beach. Nice view from the room. No mosquito net. Close to the railway which makes it a bit noisy. Spa had an OK capacity and helpful staff. Gym is just stinky, no AC. Water in the pool is cold but clean. The rest area is too cool, not decorated in a way you would expect to look like, not cozy at all. Few hard beds, low temperature.

Okey hotel, more like a three star than a four. The staff was friendly and tried to help you out in any way they could. The rooms are average size but rather small bathrooms. great view from the room overlooking lake Balaton. Don´t know why but I got the feeling that this was an old hotel from the 60´s that had been renovated some years ago. The breakfast is okey but nothing more, it´s a big difference if you visit the breakfast room early or if you go there after 9 am, then you will see a crowded place, half empty plates and if your unlucky you can´t find what you want. The bar at the hotel cloesd down just after 11 pm, a bit early I think. We did try a massage treatment, a nice lady did the massage but she had no idea of what treatment we had ordered, I was also told that there was only one person who was doing all the treatments so it was´nt easy to get an appointment and of cause she must be tired after doing all the treatments from ealy morning until evening. All the staff that we met was polite and friendly but several of them did´nt know any English, but on the other hand - it all worked out anyway. So over all, an okey choice but absolutley no four star. Oh, yes - I must also comment on the elevators - what ever you do - dont be in a hurry!

We were on the eleventh floor of a suite. It was a nice clean room. View first class. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. If you want to bring into the room. The average restaurant but delicious. Wines only high quality but expensive. Staff friendly and helpful. The pool and wellness average. Nothing special. The bar is cozy. The top function room is very nice! I recommend this hotel. You should go in the summer because you can go swimming in the lake.
