Hotel Helikon Keszthely Reviews
Great sport services Aug 01, 2008
Well, the Hotel Helikon is definitely not the best choice if you would like to have room in an elegant and stylish hotel. Bit old fashoned, but comfortable, definitely enough for spending time there for sleeping. I spent a week in that hotel, only with buffet breakfast. For me (and my friends and family) the most importat thing was to enjoy the lake Balaton as much as it is possible. The location of the hotel is excellent, close to the downtown and to Festetics Castle, directly at the lakeside. Please note, that this hotel is opened only in the holiday season, and closed at 23rd November 2010 till 11st. March 2011. The hotel offer guarded parking place for free, what was definitely something important for us. The reception service was nonstop, the staff is nice, helpful and they are speaking different languages (mostly german and english). There is free wifi only at the main lounge of the hotel, this should be improved. Laundry service, car rental is available, and there is a small play-room for children.
So as I mentioned before,for us the sport facilities were the most important. There are many things you can do here. The hotel has its own small beach and mini- aquapark, also has swimming pool. At lake Balaton they offer you chance for surfing, kayaking and canoeing. The hotel has own tennis courts, and shuttlecock courts. There is a possibility to play basketball and squash. Bike rental is availbale also, with a cheap price. The wellness facilities are also great, massage, sauna, solarium us available, also there is beauty salon with full service. Who do not really like the above mentioned sports, than there is a gym at the hotel. We also had a chance to go for horseback riding, and it was an amazing experience, and we should have thank it to the receptionist who recommended for us the possibility.
Our room was a bit old-style, but we had enough space. The beds were comfortable, the balcony is very small. On the whole, there wasn't any serious problem with the room, it was clean, and comfortable. In the room with had minibar, bathroom, sat TV, phone, radio and hairdryer. The check in is after 14:00, and you need to leave the hotel until 11:00am.
Honestly, I think the hotel is a bit overpriced if you take only the room+bathroom into consideration, but the sport facilities are excellent, in that way we got absolutely what we wanted.
