Staying in this beautiful hotel is like taking a step back in time. The hotel could do with a makeover but then the price of the hotel would have to increase so I prefer it just the way it is. It is impressive and unique and you can just imagine yourself walking through the corridors in another era. The hotel...

Danubius Hotel Gellert is a beautiful hotel situated to the west of central Budapest. The location is fantastic, there is a metro station located meters from the hotel, and you can't miss the hotel when you leave the metro station as the hotel is huge! The hotel has a very vintage atmosphere, and that was nice, the staff were all...

Stunning hotel where the service was excellent. We booked a superior room but were given a suite which was great, it was huge and very comfortable. We asked for a quiet room, and it certainly was that, but although it was on the back corner of the hotel, we could still see the river and the green bridge from our...

Loved sitting on the terrace eating the included breakfast and looking at the Danube River. The front desk staff go out of there way to help the guests. The outdoor swimming pools are great. The rooms are spacious but a little old fashioned. The thermal bath downstairs is amazing but too many rules. Hotel Gellert is pretty much near the...

Rooms with a fantastic view of the river - but also heavy traffic noise (exept during the night). Nice, spacious room; good bed; good bathroom.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Art Nouveau style Danubius Hotel Gellert first opened its doors in 1918, and has long been an iconic Budapest landmark that has even featured in Hollywood films. Its stately building, at the foot of the Gellert hill, also houses the world-famous Gellert Baths, which include an outdoor pool with the original wave-generating device installed in 1927. Over the years, some famous names have stayed at the Gellert – including American presidents and European royalty – and the hotel retains the elegant atmosphere of a bygone age. Guests can enjoy superb cuisine at the Panorama Restaurant or Gellert Brasserie, and take advantage of wellness treatments and medical programmes at the adjacent Gellert Baths. Furthermore, the hotel is the perfect base for exploring, located next to one of Budapest’s most beautiful bridges and a short walk from Pest’s Great Market Hall and shopping streets. ... more   less
