The hotel has not been renovated in fifty years. Carpets are worn, mattresses are old. The window frames had the paint flaking off. Rooms are small. My room was about 4 m by 4 m. Not sure why they are not upgrading the hotel. Good is the easy access to thermal pools. The lobby has the historic flair. Location is...

It looks impressive on the outside but the moment you walk through the doors you know this place is just surviving because of the spa attached. The décor is not simply old and outdated, it's oppressive, there is no charm and certainly no comfort, even the doors to the rooms look like prison cells and it doesn't get any better...

The hotel was very well located on the bank of the river in Buda with good transport links in front. It had great facilities and the staff were very helpful.

Our group of seven stayed at the Gellert from sep 9-13, 2016. While the hotel's external facade was most impressive, its rooms were in a pretty shabby state (no a/c, peeling facade, etc). Worse was the curt, almost rude, attitude of the reception staff on arrival. However, after a rather rocky start, we settled into the Gellert and enjoyed it's...

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
