The building and the Spa are just amazing, the location close to sightseeing places, staff extremely friendly and helpful. The room had a nice view on the river and a small balcony, but except the TV, the facilities and furniture were worn out. The room would be fantastic if they would renovate it.

Amazing early 20th century building with the famous Gellert thermal Baths next door. Breakfast was a highlight, though you have to find your way to the outdoor terrace. Considering overall quality the room decor seemed a bit dated, but gosh our room was big with views over the Danube.

This is a hotel with old style. Don't expect new modern rooms and facilities. It is a huge, clean hotel with large rooms with a view over Donau. Excellent place on Buda side close to a famous Gellert SPA .

Quite dated Hotel, really in need of a renovation. However, the room was quite large and had a nice view over the river. The breakfast was ok. The hotel is in a good location with walking distance to the more central parts of town.

We were not able to sleep on Saturday night untill 02:00 a.m. because the hotel gives more importance to hiring its restaurant to private parties than to looking after their guests comfort and we could hear the music right in our bedroom that was right above.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Art Nouveau style Danubius Hotel Gellert first opened its doors in 1918, and has long been an iconic Budapest landmark that has even featured in Hollywood films. Its stately building, at the foot of the Gellert hill, also houses the world-famous Gellert Baths, which include an outdoor pool with the original wave-generating device installed in 1927. Over the years, some famous names have stayed at the Gellert – including American presidents and European royalty – and the hotel retains the elegant atmosphere of a bygone age. Guests can enjoy superb cuisine at the Panorama Restaurant or Gellert Brasserie, and take advantage of wellness treatments and medical programmes at the adjacent Gellert Baths. Furthermore, the hotel is the perfect base for exploring, located next to one of Budapest’s most beautiful bridges and a short walk from Pest’s Great Market Hall and shopping streets. ... more   less
