Balaton hotel spends HUF 1.8 bln on new facilities
Hotel Azúr in Siófok, the most famous tourist resort of Lake Balaton, has completed a new wing, a wellness center and conference rooms at a cost of HUF 1.82 billion.
The project - the second phase of a larger development - took almost two years to complete.
The first phase of the development at the Hungarian-owned hotel, supported with European Union funding of HUF 530 million, was completed earlier this year. That phase added two 200-sqm conference rooms and a snack and bowling bar.
Marketing and Sales Manager Balázs Sternocky said the hotel's capacity has increased to 313 rooms and 750 guests with the expansion, which has created 40 new jobs. Hotel Azur has operated with almost 90% occupancy in the past two months, just as in the previous year.
