“feeling at home at the centre of Budapest”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

the cafe Gerloczy was recommended in the guide book I consulted when preparing my visit to Budapest, it also said that sinc a couple of years it is possible to stay at one of the rooms in the upper part of this historical building - I got intrigued, checked the hotel's web page and decided to stay there also because it appeared to me that its location would be very convenient. . . - I've to say that I immediately liked it and enjoyed staying there a lot - the room was very comfortable, cosy and also functional - recently furbished with an eye for beautiful details - I felt at home and was surprised that it was so quiet there, right in the middle of town - wonderful to get some well deserved rest after a long day's walking / visiting tour! The room was spotless when I arrived and thoroughly cleaned every day.
Staff is super friendly, helpful and just great - and made these days a pleasant experience!
At the cafe/restaurant, one may wonder about old days, when cafes played a major role in social life - the food is excellent and the service very good. And it's really a place where not only hotel guests come for breakfast. . .!
The location is close to central squares where one can take the metro, to the Jewish part of town and to a lot of shops. I had no problem to get around be it on foot or with public transportation.

We spent four wonderful nights at the Gerloczy, and I really can not say enough about how much we love this charming hotel. It is just so cute from the outside but you step in the doors and you feel like you have stepped back in time with a lovely elegance throughout. I'm afraid our mouths were probably hanging open the whole time as we walked up the circular staircase and then came to our rooms with the huge wooden doors that must be at least nine feet tall. The rooms are large and beautiful.
We had booked early and requested the room with the balcony while our daughters had the room right next door. It was so much fun to sit outside while enjoying a glass of wine and listening to the murmur of people below. The balcony has a small table and two chairs but the staff brought up two more chairs for us. The breakfast was very, very good and we never went over our allotment. A couple of earlier reviews had complained about the waiters, while they were not overly friendly, they were very professional and we had no problems.
The location could not have been better. We walked to The Great Market, down to the waterfront, good resturants near by and even a grocery store across the way. With the subway just a couple of blocks away it was easy for us to jump on and go anywhere we wanted.
Staff service was excellent. My e-mails were answered right away, they looked up jazz clubs and printed off a map, arranged a taxi to pick us up for an 4:00 pm to take us out to the airport, answered any of our questions and were ready to give suggestions. English was spoken as well as I believe, many other languages.
This was our oldest daughter's first time to Europe. The Gerloczy has set a very high bar for the rest of her future trips. This was a wonderful place for the four of us (daughters were 21 & 25) but it would also be my top pick for a romantic trip for two.

We just come back from a 4 nights stay: we loved everything at Gerloczy's! The location is ultra convenient, quiet yet close to everything, especially the design streets and the former Jewish quarter, which has lots of bars and restaurants.

The beautiful building has a palace feeling and the golden staircase is just gorgeous.
Our room (n°3 on 2nd floor) was beautiful and comfortable, with a charming but functional bathroom (we had a walk-in oval shower). And we liked our breakfasts (we tasted almost everything, everything was yummy with may be one exception: the tasteless "french" toast).

The atmosphere is laid-back and I liked the fact they had a "regular" menu for New Year Eve: for example you could get a grilled fish and your wine at the same price as usual, and I like the fact they don't inflate the prices for NYE. I think this is fully representative of the consideration this hotel has for their customers, and it is uncommon enough considering the reasonable prices!

Room Tip: Room 3 on 2nd floor has a bathroom with walk-in shower and a balcony: this is the room you can see o...

We booked for several nights, and extended the stay. The staff is friendly and accomodating. The restaurant downstairs is amazing. Each room comes with a room copy of a local guide book that has some great insider information on Budapest. The closest metro stop is just a few minutes walk away. Other reviewers have already mentioned the heated bathroom floor, which is huge by any standard. The bed was comfortable, the room very large, the furnishings and decor are top notch, but oh, the staircase . . . If back in Budapest again, would absolutely stay there. Highly recommended.
