The hotel has a perfect location, the spa is beautiful and an excellent breakfast is served. On the other hand, the rooms would definitely benefit from a refurbishment and to be equipped with air conditioning.

Included breakfast was great. Location was fantastic. Within walking distance to several of Budapest's historical sites. Encourage everyone to take advantage of the free hot springs pass. Staff were very helpful and pleasant to deal with.

The hotel is a true landmark in Budapest. Our junior suite was very spacious and had incredible views overlooking the Danube. It was centrally located with a tram stop practically outside the door and its proximity to the Liberty Bridge made it easy to reach all parts of the city.

Thanks, it was nice but the bed is too small even though on the website it says twine bed. Breakfast is the best I ever had in a hotel. I am also wondering why this questionnaire is sent to me in German language.

Dear hegwuche, Thank you very much for taking the time to give us invaluable feedback – it is the very foundation of our unending growth! The language was probably set to German by Trip Advisor because of your country being set to Switzerland, and unless you enter a different preference, it might choose it for you.

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.
