The hotel

Giardino is a cosy and friendly hotel with a large terrace opening off the main street of Balatongyörök, a beautiful village on the coast of Lake Balaton.

It has 14 rooms ready to accommodate any visitor who is seeking rest and relaxation. Amongst its many attractions is a permanent exhibition of the works of contemporary artists. The exquisite Mediterranean-style garden is a riot of colour, its flowers and scents help ensure that our visitors are completely relaxed.

The hotel is approximately 700 meters from the shore – thus your accommodation will be close to the lake, yet secluded from the everyday hustle and bustle of the beach. When you have had enough of the sun, the water, and the hub-bub of the beach, you will find peace and serenity awaiting you in the cool of sunshades on the terrace, or while you are relaxing on your sun-bed.


Children enjoy the pool, while the more active holiday-makers will find table tennis and csocsó (a traditional Hungarian game of table football) or they can try a Finnish and an infra sauna in the basement of the house. So even if it rains your fun need not be interrupted.

If you decide to venture out of the village, we would be delighted to organise a trip for you: you can take a horse-driven carriage ride combined with wine tasting at Szigliget, see a horse show, hop on a carriage for a nostalgia train ride, or be entertained by the medieval games in the Sümeg Castle. And these are just a few of our offers.

Balatongyörök welcomes golf lovers at its brand new 18 hole (PAR 70) golf course, which is only a 2 minute drive from our hotel. Imperial Balaton, designed by the well known golf architect D I Hans Georg Erhardt, currently has 9 holes and a driving range open. For further information, please visit
