In case you are looking for a great, clean, quite big-size room/apartment very close to Lake Balaton - this is an ideal option. My mum, Maria, who is a hairdresser and has her salon in the house too, lives there. The Castelinho house has several one- and two-bedroom apartments with bathroom, TV, small kitchen and terrace. It is possible to have an extra bed in each of these apartments to sleep 3/5 persons.
There is a garden, parking place, and a beautiful restaurant very close to the house where Hungarian and European cuisine is served. Lake Balaton is just 500 metres away from the guesthouse (same street), and 3 thermal baths can be found at 8, 12 and 20km distance (Hévíz, Kehidakustány, Zalakaros, respectively).
The railway station is 300m, the bus station is 200m away - Gyenesdias is a relaxing small village right next to one of the most popular towns around Balaton, Keszthely.
The price for two is 39E, and 45E during peak season (between 17 June and 27 August) in the summer. The two-bedroom apartments are 69E for four people, and 79E during the peak season. The price for additional person is 15 E, for additional child (below 12) is 5 E per night. Children under 2 years old are not charged extra.
Smoking only in the terrace or garden. Otherwise, no rules, just relax and enjoy.
We had a wonderful time in this apartment for several reasons. One reason is that is was really close to the Balaton lake as you would reach the lake in 10min walking time. The rooms themselves were really clean and beautifully set up.
At every time we felt really welcome in this place as the host was always approachable. Also as we could not speak Hungarian which does not matter as we could always find good other communication ways.
Thanks for the great time!!!!
