the unique story

of a hotel in Tihany

8237 Tihany, Lepke sor 9-11.
+36 87 538 220

We believe in personal experiences: since we are a small hotel, we can pay attention to all our guests individually. It is our pleasure to recommend programmes and leisure activities tailored to everyone’s personal needs who want to discover the Tihany region and greet our regular guests by their first names.

We started to manage the hotel with my college friends fourteen years ago, and today it is run by a professional team with several years of experience. Our main aim is to introduce our guests to our „Balaton way of life” as we like it too. With all my colleagues from the housekeeping and maintenance department, reception, kitchen and restaurant we work hard to contribute to your days of relaxation and holiday in Hungary and we sincerely hope that you return home with many great memories and experiences.

What is a „Balaton way of life” according to our opinion?

…marvel at the beautiful sunset colors with a nice glass of wine

…lay on our beach with the kids after a refreshing splash in the water

…discover a unique viewpoint of Tihany Abbey from aboard a sailing yacht
