We loved it - great location, huge room (we had gone for the deluxe option)with a great view, breakfast included and the attached spa. The opulence of a classic Grand Hotel as refitted in Soviet Modern style about 50 years ago. So if you really want all the trendy Boutique Hotel details you'll be disappointed - but its still very...

Feeling as being in the last century.I like the no nonsense accomodation.Only point of critism is that at both my stays it was hard to find a table at breakfast.Staff is friendly and helpfull.Please do not change the interior,only maintain it.

My stay here made my imagination run wild. Even if some things were not completely on the level people are accustomed to in today's luxury accommodation, the architecture and atmosphere was like visiting the hotel from the movie "Grand Budapest Hotel" and totally made up for any shortcomings. I bit pricey, but definitely worth experiencing!

We wanted to book something better, so we looked around at the different 4-star hotels available. I think Gellert Hotel had a really nice atmosphere, and is in an old building with personality. Seeing the reviews below, I asked for a room toward the river and high up in the building. This request was granted and the room was very...

5 Star boutique chic it is not. The dated and genteel charm is a good enough reason to want to stay here. Add to this; excellent value, friendly and helpful staff. Plus the wonderful Gellert baths (free 1st visit, 1/2 price thereafter!) without leaving the building! With stunning views over the frozen Danube, what's not to like. We will be...

we enjoyed our stay at the Gellert. Of course, if you are looking for a standard hotel treatment, this may not be for you. But if you appreciate experiencing past glory and a place that still vaguely reverberates the communist times, you will enjoy your stay. Two travel tips: If your sleep is light, you shouldn't take a room with...

This is of course the aged hotel resort, feeling the hystory but perhaps some details are below the expectation. Expected value of the spa resort was low, cleanliness and services poor. Some services like parking out of standard way.

Really enjoyed our stay. Supremely helpful staff and a grand hotel. Lovely stained glass, super spa and the best breakfast I have ever eaten in a hotel. Outside spa isn't open in some winter months so check before you book. The inside spa was 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.
