Rejuvenated seventies - the hotel in Siófok

Made in the seventies with an uncompleted new wing, the hotel in Siófok had to be remade with a comprehensive design comprising the adjoining hotel. The design of Alfréd Peschka, Tamás Csernik and Tímea Egervári (Óbuda Architect Studio) managed to complete all these tasks, in addition, the finished hotel measures up to a higher standard. 

The planning task was to revive the hotel project cancelled in 2011 and to meet the altered expectations of the owner. The hotel was built in several stages, after 2011, an extension, whose construction stopped during the stage of structural works, was planned for the former wing which is dates back to the 1970s. The original architect was Szilvási Attila.

The new investor wished to finish this uncompleted construction by taking more advantage of the conditions functionally. For example, the main entrance was constructed in the new wing; larger, connecting rooms have been built and a health department has also been installed on the ground floor.

It was the client’s request to position the hotel to a higher level of standard, to create family rooms and to restructure the restaurant/kitchen and the community spaces by reconsidering the interior design completely. There was also a demand for functional connection with the hotel of 2630 m² and its spa building on the neighbouring plot of land, and it was important to create a comprehensive image comprising the two, since it had the same owner.

In the four-star hotel of 2600 m² with a ground floor and three additional floors, 38 room units have been created on two floors. The conference rooms can be found on the top floor, the restaurant, lobby and the service areas on the ground floor.

Due to its location, Hotel Yacht has a unique panorama; most of its rooms overlook the Lake Balaton and the sailing boat harbour. Primary purpose of the operator is to meet the demands of both business travellers and tourists with a fine balance.
