It would have been fantastic to see the hotel when it was new (probably wouldn't have afforded a stay). The facilities are very impressing, however a bit worn. With a renovation this could be a luxury hotel again. The public areas are ok, but the rooms would need renovation as soon as possible. Staff was polite and breakfast super! Metro...

Located on the river side, this hotel has the charmest location in the city. The Art Nouveau bulding and the thermal baths transport you to the cultural efflorescence of Budapest at begining of the 20th century.

It is a shame that such a beautiful hotel is in such a bad shape; I am talking about everything but especially the carpets and furniture in the hallways and rooms. I had an economy room and the bed was so terrible that I missed a nights sleep. They upgraded us to standard room and it was better. It was...

My wife and I stayed in the hotel during a scientific conference. We really enjoyed our staying. The room was very nice with windows looking at the river and Pest. Conditions for the conference were ideal. Breakfasts and lunches were served very well, the food was of good quality. If we come to Budapest as tourists we will stay here....

I liked the food and the Location of the hotel. On one day some weird smell had developed in the restroom (while I was away...) but the issue was dealt with quickly by the staff. Other than that the place was kept very clean, some of the furniture was a bit older, but still comfortable.

Whenever we go to Budapest we stay at the Gellert Hotel. The hotel may not be the most modern and may need some improvements but it makes me feel like a wealthy traveler of the beginning of the 20th century. The staff is so helpful, the stained- glass windows of the staircase is beautiful and the proximity of the Gellert...

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.
