“Beautiful Hotel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2011

We spent 4 days at this Hotel with my family for our vacation and had the best time of our lives! The location is unbeatable, Balaton is a footstep away from the Hotel, great swimming pools inside and outside. We spent all day at the pools, had a great time at the wellness area, jacuzzi.

The breakfast and dinner buffet is exeptional, the selection is superb and wide, something for everyone's taste. You can also sit outside on the patio and enjoy the cool nights after a hot day with a glass of wine. Elegant service.

Now, some of the negatives, unfortunately there was a couple. The beds in the rooms are extremely uncomfortable and short. The pillows are very old and hard to sleep on, they remind me of my grandmother's pillows from 20 years ago...The AC did not work in one of the rooms with 30 Celsius outside.

Housekeeping did an excellent job, the rooms were spotless and the public areas were very clean as well.

Overall we enjoyed the stay and would definitely return.

This hotel is right at the shore of the lake. Nice large rooms, but the bed at least in my room was really short. The food is really good. The breafkast buffet has the widest selection I've ever seen.
The pools are good as well.

Room Tip: Lake view is a must!

Food is greasy, not very good. Go to eat out, many fine restaurants are in town

Room Tip: lake view, supperior room. A bit more expensive but it worth the money

The building is really pretty, nice and clean. The rooms are nice, Biedermeier style furniture, we had a big bathroom and everything was really clean. If you want a view you should ask for a room with the view to the Balaton.
They have inside pools and outside pools, kids loved them.
Food was really good, restaurant is really good as well, big selection. Staff was little scattered in the restaurant, but food was good.
We kind of felt "left alone" during our stay there. That is both positive and negative. Would go back again, and would recommend, just would like a little more welcome at reception area, more smiles from the staff.
The city Balatonfüred is just simply beautiful, with great restaurants, bars.

Room Tip: If you want a good view reserve with view to Lake Balaton

While visiting relatives in the region over a three week period last summer, I opted to relocate to this hotel for two nights when I couldn't extend my stay at the Silver Resort hotel in Balatonfured. The Flamingo isn't right smack dab in the heart of Fured but it is on the water and is well known for it's indoor and outdoor adventure pools, private beach and spa services.

The check-in process on arrival was similar to that of going through customs - cold and unfriendly. I had booked a room with a waterfront room and was not very pleased to be checked into a room that was right ontop of the outdoor parking lot and busy street. Yes - I could infact see the water if I went out on the mini deck and looked to the far far left but that wasn't what I paid for so I asked to be moved. After a 20 minute wait and several different comments from the front desk about the fact that there were no waterview rooms available, a lovely room looking on to the lake suddenly appeared.

The room was clean and nicely decorated and it was quiet as well. TV worked well and the outdoor balcony was a nice touch when it wasn't raining.

My biggest let down was the "dining hall" during the dinner hour. The nights I was staying in the hotel seemed to be quite busy so needless to say the room in which the buffet was served was noisy and jammed with people (and lots of kids) lining up for North American-style cuisine and the odd European inspired dish. As a foodie, I passed on the cafeteria-style dining the second night and walked to a local restaurant I was familiar with.

Breakfast options were good and served in the same rooms but I was fortunate to be able to grab outdoor table so I could enjoy my own company, a good book, a great view and far too many cups of espresso.

I'd recommend this hotel to those who love all things water and large quantities of food. Will I go back? Sorry but not thank you.

We stayed in this hotel for the second time and still we find it very very good for relax and very good for family with children.
Hotel has a great wellness centre. There is a lot of fun for everyone. Watter is very warm and suitable even for small children. The one thing I would complain a bit, at a rainy days, when everybody is in wellness, there is not enough beds around the inside pools.
We stayed in appartement exclusive and it was really very clean a spacious. 2 separated bedrooms, one very large living room combined with a kitchen and dining room, also big bathroom and separated WC, balcony around all the appartement with the infinity view to the lake Balaton. (100m2)
Food for us was super. It is mostly typical hungarian kitchen. Maybe English guests could struggle a bit, but we found it great choice. High chairs for kids are available, but there is not enough of them. The staff of the hotel was friendly to us. We did not experianced some bad beahviours. Be aware that waiters speak mostly German language only.
The hotel was fully booked during our stay. Mainly family with kids and older people. Mix of Hungarian, German , Czech and Slovak guests.
We had a pleasant stay of 5 days and would return back there.
Balatonfured is well mantained town. Nicely decorated with flowers. Good for nice walks around the lake. Shopping and the rest also available.

Hotel was good and facilities were good but the staff were unfriendly,
very snobby, never smiling, we really felt like we are imposing on their
time, outside bar service were very bad, ordered, some food and had to await, over half hour, for small burger, the young, but attractive staff thinks, its their vacation, so don't bother them. this kind of service is acceptable in allot of places in Hungary.
