Veszprem Hotels offer both quality and variety, even though they are fewer
in number than you might expect of a vibrant university city rich in history
and in such proximity to the beaches of
Lake Balaton and other natural attractions.
You really won’t find any 5-star deluxe hotels, as is the case with many towns
and cities other than Budapest. It’s
not that there is lack of things to do
and see, for there are many.
But there is very good Veszprem accommodation
to be had that will fit any budget and meet any taste. You may not have the
opulence that’s available in some Budapest
hotels but you can find first-rate comfort in 3-star and 4-star hotels that
are close to fine dining venues and great
shopping opportunities and with easy
accessibility to the city’s sites and attractions. There are also cheap hotels
in Veszprem and they provide you with great vacations when you’re on a budget.
The Gizella Hotel is a 3-star Veszprem accommodation that is a hidden gem right in the Castle District. Full of history and ambience, it’s located in a 200-year-old protected Baroque historic monument and has stairs leading directly to the castle. Each room is totally unique, with whitewashed walls, hand-hewn beams, hardwood floors, and arched ceilings. There is a good restaurant serving Hungary wine and both local and international cuisine. Similar Veszprem lodging includes the Holdfeny Panzio and Veszprem Hotel.
The kind of Veszprem accommodation that is most popular are family-run guesthouses a little outside of the Castle District. They are often located on quiet and charming residential streets within walking distance of the town center. Generally, reasonable rates include cold buffet breakfast and many have good restaurants and other dining choices nearby. This type of intimate Veszprem lodging usually has only a few rooms, so will book up far in advance.
One of these Veszprem hotels is the Éllõ Guesthouse set in one of the prettiest parts of the city. It has private gardens and terrace, restaurant and bar, and will assist guests with things to do like hiking in the surrounding countryside. Since many come here for extended holidays, there also Hungary apartments and vacation homes with self-catering facilities available for rent. This kind of Veszprem lodging provides an authentic experience of living like the locals.
Veszprem is set within a large beautiful, unspoiled national park that encompasses Lake Balaton and the alpine foothills that lead to Austria. Out in the countryside near the city are some deluxe 4-star Veszprem hotels and resorts catering to those who want pampered comfort and opportunities to explore the beautiful natural surroundings. The Betekints Hotel, located in a valley on the Zed Stream and the superb Hotel Villa Medici are two of these. The Villa Medici offers a very extensive wellness center with indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, and massage services. There’s good dining including an English pub and opportunities for tasting of Hungary wine and playing billiards in its vaulted wine cellar.
