So many wonderful places to visit in Hungary, but Lake Balaton is not one of them.
Posted Sep 19, 2010
A disappointing hotel 20 minutes walk away from the town, located in a remote residential area. The room had no balcony and smelt of stale air- freshner. The swimming pool was no bigger than a paddling pool. On the plus side, hotel staff were reasonably friendly and the room was clean.
The lake is only a ten minute stroll away, although we were unaware that to swim in it you had to pay to use a hotel jetty or kid's park. Overall poor value for money in an unpleasant resort. We may have successfully avoided the touristy tackiness rumoured to be on the other side of the lake, but any charm evaded us too.
