“Nice, central hotel in a nice town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2012

Newly built hotel in the very center of the town. Modern, friendly rooms, very comfy beds, enough space for the cloths. Connecting rooms are available, very good solution for bigger families. Free coffee and tea in the room. Drink prices in the bar and minibar are ridiculously expensive. Cleanliness is good, except the shower tray in the bathroom, that really would need more care. Breakfast is OK (fresh fruits, omlette, ham, cold cuts, cheese, jam, cookies and tea/low quality machine coffee). Unfortunately the chairs' legs in the restaurant are very loudly moving on the floor, as people pull them while standing up or sitting down at the buffet, it can be heard even in the rooms above the restaurant (even at 5 a.m. when the staff starts the work), so try to avoid these rooms. Otherwise the walls and windows are nicely soundproof. Windows of the rooms are openable (I find this important to mention, as there are more and more hotels where there is no possibility to let some fresh air in). Bathrooms have no ventilation system at all.

The gym has several cardio machines and weights for a basic training, as well as a ping-pong table. The jacuzzi was out of work during our stay, as well as 1 of the 2 saunas, so you'd better forget the wellness part of the hotel. You can try the massage instead, it is good and the price is very reasonable (max. 20,- Euros/hour). Conference rooms are available.

The town of Hódmezővásárhely is surprisingly nice, is beautifully renewed and has several thing to see. It is definitely worth to spend there 1 or 2 days! The location of the hotel is excellent. There is a garage under the building. You can walk out, the restaurant in the neighboring building offers very good food for a very good price. The town of Szeged can be reached within 30 minutes drive, as well as Makó, where the spectacular bath 'Hagymatikum' can be found.

I think this is one of the best hotel of the region. Staff is nice and friendly, even though management could care a bit more in some little details. So don't miss this hotel, it's well worth a stay.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms right above the restaurant, they might be noisy (rooms 109, 110, 111).

Firstly, our family booked there a room for two nights.The hotel stretches in the ciy center so we could reach the sights easy. Secondly, our room was a bit small and the spa was just a portable jakuzzi but I think it was enough. The breakfist was delicious, but there was a belgian group of children and they ate all the cakes early...
For the end, we enjoyed this hotel very much. If the spa would be larger thishotel would be the best in this region. :)

Room Tip: The 414th room is suitable for a couple or a small family.

Thank you very much for your feedback. Our city center location is one of our main selling points. We can garantee that you won’t find a hotel in town closer to the city center and main sites! Hopefully we can welcome you again soon.

Hotel has a perfect location right next to the Main Square. It was built recently, everything is clean and brand new. We stayed there during the Canoe Sprint Worlds held in Szeged just 20 kms away from the town.
Breakfast is great, hotel staff is very friendly.
Recommended at any time for any reason.

I was invited to stay at this hotel as the first guest following a year long refurbishment. I am a well travelled person who has probably stayed at well over 50 different hotels a year from 1999 to now.

I have stayed at $5 a night rooms in Cambodia, Vietnam and India, $300 in New York and £60 Premier and travel lodges in the UK. I have sampled the best and the worst in the hotel world. The worst wasn't Cambodia, Vietnam or the UK so you get the picture. This hotel has everything you need. Very friendly staff, central location, Wifi, bright and fresh room, fantastic shower, It works without too much twiddling with numourous knobs, quality fittings in the room, quality shower gel and a really comfortable bed. It will never be home but the basics of a great hotel are here.

I hope you all enjoy your stay as much as I did.
