Best of Budapest & Hungary 2022

The Best of Budapest & Hungary is an impartial rating system that, since 1993, has been annually surveying its readers, business associates, and members of the editorial committee to determine who excels in Hungary’s hospitality, hotel, and other service sectors. This prestigious accolade, often referred to as the “benchmark of quality,” is bestowed by the publisher following a transparent and rigorous editorial vote, open to the general public, recognizing those who consistently uphold high standards of service. This year, a total of forty-one distinct categories celebrated well-deserving victors.

The restaurant of the adults-only hotel on the north shore of Lake Balaton was selected as “Best New Restaurant” based on the online votes and the votes received by the Budapest Week Publishing jury.
