Great hotel made for a wonderful couple of days in Budapest. If you are looking for an authentic Hungarian hotel and don't mind the decor being a little tired then the The Gellert is definitely worth considering. It has loads of charm and the thermal spa is a treat. We asked for a room overlooking the Danube and the view...

Lovely older style hotel not far from the city centre. Rooms comfortable and large, we overlooked the Danube which was lovely. Breakfast buffet style but plenty of it and a regular top up. Certainly enjoyed our stay and was very good value.

Very friendly personal, nice hotel and a very good location. The therms are fantastic, maybe a little more silents should be better. My room was ok, but sometimes had a very bad smell that came out of the bathroom.

The Gellért is like a relic from another era, a gentler era, one with bellboys and night managers and doormen. We loved it. Our room was huge with a walk in wardrobe and balcony. Our only real complaint would be the bed linen and pillows - neither of which were comfortable. The hotel has a pub with great Hungarian food...

Iconic hotel, you come for the history, not so much for the looks. Small rooms, last renovation probably 20-30 years ago, heating somewhat broken, but location is good, and breakfast and afternoon tea excellent.

Someone else perfectly described this hotel as an echo of former glory. It is a fantastic landmark, however, I was not overwhelmed once I got inside.

The room was massive (about 40m2) and niceley furbished old fashion style. Stunning view to the Danube. The staff was really nice and helpful.

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.
