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.
