This lake is very accessible from Budapest and has a very well laid out cycle path that circuits almost the whole lake. I rented a bike from a Zilaj Bringa, a bike rental shop very close to the Velence train station. Took about 3 hours...More
I love Velencei lake. It's close to Budapest, so you can get there in half an hour by train. The water is not very clean but safe to swim in it. There are buffets, bars amd sports facilities on the beaches, so you can spend...More
Nice lake. But a bloody awful tourist destination, way to over crowded. Bar's and restaurants, average. But the completely missing service is all over present. No smile, no small talking, its more and more typical for the most tourists areas in Hungary, it's more than...More

Hi I can't help you with your transport issue. About the accommodation, I would use the internet for searching between the many hotels in the area. I've have been staying at the Juventus hotel, easy access, very close to the lake and panoramic view. The hotel is"only" average and the "standard" Hungarian service. Good luck.
