Whenever we go to Budapest we stay at the Gellert Hotel. The hotel may not be the most modern and may need some improvements but it makes me feel like a wealthy traveler of the beginning of the 20th century. The staff is so helpful, the stained- glass windows of the staircase is beautiful and the proximity of the Gellert...

The rooms are rather down at heal, but if the bedrooms are basic and old-fashioned, they are at least comfortable and, ours at least, came with a great view over the river. The public areas are modern and more appealing than the rooms. The thermal-baths on-site are as promised and a great experience.

I was attending a Conference held at the Hotel, while my wife was sightseeing Budapest. All went smoothly and effortlessly. The Hotel shows signs of history, which implies that not everything can be kept shining but, on the other hand, it creates a pleasant atmosphere of old glory. We were totally satisfied.

The bed was small, there was a strange smell in the toilet and out of 2 elevators one was not working. Moreover, the spa was old fashioned and the swimming pool did not look very clean. in summary, it has everything, but everything looks old! But I think it has one of the best locations in budapest!

This is a beautiful and attractive grand hotel with an old fashion way of doing things, albeit great service , friendly and efficient staff. Our room overlooked the Danube - as per our request and it was very elegant, clean and smelled lovely! The bathroom is slightly old fashioned and tired but functional and incredibly spacious. The Spa is amazing!...

Staying in Gellert Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the landscape with its imposing 19th century construction, a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being distracted by the phenomenal view over the Danube and the eight bridges crossing. Once on Gellért Hill however, one mustn’t miss the famous Gellért Baths. Budapest is renown for its thermal waters and its baths, and the Gellért Baths are housed in an impressive art nouveau structure. Its interior design, with its many mosaics, recalls the preceding relationships the city has had with healing springs and saunas, traditionally used within this neighborhood since the Ottoman Empire.
