The outside looks stunning. it's a beautiful building with a great location and views looking straight over the Danube: Budapest experience: check. Sadly though, once you've got beyond the entrance room, it's desperately disappointing. The corridors resemble the secure wing on a mental hospital. It's dull, lifeless and painfully in need of updating. The room has fared even worse. The...

Great location, lovely staff, but wouldn't give 4*. Rooms are dated and needs to be refurbished. Huge options at breakfast. Pool area looks way better on pictures and it is actually. Could heat rooms better in this time of the year!

Went with two friends. I was lucky on my room: Riverview, large, nice wood panelling, but the bathroom needed a new tub and fixtures and floor (sink was new). Generally not a bad room, although more 3 star than four. However, my friends had a moldy bathroom and dumpy conditions. Even looking at what was available this was pretty awful....

gellert has a great location, charming facilities and fantastic food in its restaurant. staff great. crowdy breakfast however, and we had to wait for 10 minutes to get a table all three mornings. they give you a free ticket to the spa - but you can probably skip that if you expect an actual spa.

What a great name "GELLERT". But now the name only is left. The hotel needs immediat general refurbising. Everything is worn out textiles & furniture, dust in rooms, heating not functioning, cold draft blowing in rooms. The rating is less than *** now. Positive matters: very friendly staff and exellent breakfast. For sure next time when refurbished.

There was no problem in location and staff response. However, heating was weak, it was a problem. The cold day on January 1 was hard. If you could improve the oil heater it would have been more comfortable.

Location is great, price is reasonable, but it feels like a hotel whose glory days are in the past. It would be helpful to replace the communist style of the decoration with a more modern design (without changing the glorious facade of the building).

We upgraded to the Andrew Lloyd Webber room which had great river view, balcony and nice interior. We joined the new year party in the lounge but had to go to sleep early to catch an early flight.

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.
