The rooms are big, location is central and Gellert baths are inside the hotel. Breakfast was outstanding. The hotel could use renovating as it feels old but overall it's pretty good. I would definitely recommend it.

Everything is 5*, except one pain point: missing ventilation in shower rooms and toilets of guest rooms keep the air in them moist-cave-like and often smelly. I understand the building is almost 200 yrs old, and it takes a small toll. Maybe this could be the topic of next minor to-the-point renovation some day? We enjoyed the city and the...

What a fabulous hotel! Visually stunning with its plush art nouveau style, but also a glorious living artefact of the ravages of turbulent woth century politics. Some would say that rooms were in need of modernisation: I would disagree - there is real charm in some of the remaining memories of another era. Please don't change a thing! Staff very...

Take in the baths, swim in the pool, then relax in a warm bath. Great breakfast in the morning! Slept well in a quiet room! Make sure to go to the Church in the cave! Easy walk across the street! Wonderful lobby! Beautiful tile work and stained glass throughout!

We liked everything at Gellert and have only a few wishes: it would be nice to be able to leave an return to the baths with the same ticket. Please don't allow big parties at night which disrupt your guests sleep. Please change bathrobes after 2-3 days.

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.
