Great rooms, ideal location, friendly and helpful staff a lovely hotel full of character. We were given lots of helpful advice by the reception staff who were also happy to book tickets for trips and make reservations for restaurants. A very enjoyable stay.

My wife and I spent four nights at the Gerloczy Rooms de Lux. Positives: Very nice and responsive staff, terrific location, more than decent value for the price. Nice breakfast, free mini-bar(!) although selection limited. Negatives: Bed pretty hard, no coffee maker in room. Overall, we'd certainly stay again and can enthusiastically recommend to couples looking for a pleasant place to stay in the fascinating city of Budapest.

Room Tip: Ask for room 3 of any floor. These are supposeldy somewhat bigger (we didn't get it) but are re...

A nice place. Staff was friendly and welcoming. The location is excellent, easy walk to many sights and dining options, and it is close to public transportation. The rooms are clean and comfortable (though not luxurious). Wasn't a big problem for us, but be aware it can get a bit noisy in the mornings and evenings from the cafe below the rooms (we had a room with a balcony right above the cafe). Definitely a good value, very affordable for the quality.

First I will deal with what is good about the Gerloczy:

We were welcomed on arrival and allowed to check into our room a little ahead of time. Our Attic room was charming, clean and contained all that we needed. For those who might be less able, getting into bed could be difficult. The minibar contained sparkling wine; bear; water; cola; orange; fresh biscuits and chocolate - all to be eaten or drunk free of charge and replenished every day. The range of smellies were sufficient, wifi was fast, the hairdryer worked well etc. Breakfast each morning was included in the compulsory extra charge payable on top of the room charge. You would have difficulty in eating 12Euros worth of food - we never managed it. We had dinner there one night - on the expensive side but we enjoyed it. The waiters are very good and did not hassle us. We also had free tea one afternoon and more delicious cake. Some people have mentioned street noise or noise from the live harp / piano etc each evening. We had no problems at all. The hotel is very central for the sites of Pest and its very efficient public transport system.

Now to deal with what is wrong with the hotel:

Nothing

So we have no problems in recommending it to others.

We felt as comfortable as cats in a warm window, staying at the Gerloczy. Unfortunately just for one night, but the fantastic attention to detail in the decor, the great food (DO try the fish from the grill), the smiling service and fabulous cakes already have us pondering when we can return.
We stayed in room 4/1 at the top of the building, with a beautiful bath room, exposed beams and a curious raised bed (our guess was that is has to do with the ventilation system), the room was spotlessly clean and as the area is very quiet, we could sleep with the window open.
A few minors things could make it the perfect ten: A shower curtain to the baths (would probaly mess up the post-first world war-feel of the bathroom though) and a darker blind to block out the early morning sun - there is a blind, but not a block-out.
In the fridge you'll find a free minibar with home baked snacks, both sweet and salty, and a free bottle of Hungarian bubbly to celebrate the great idea of staying at the Gerloczy. Enjoy!

The Gerloczy is ideally situated for quick access to the centre of Budapest, on the Pest side - just 10 minutes walk to the Basilica and the same to the river. The staff are extremely helpful and welcoming and the breakfast is very good in the bustling setting of the café downstairs. The only small negative was the soft bed. Overall - really good value-for-money. We would definitely choose it again if we go back to Budapest.

Room Tip: The attic rooms are great - quirky-shaped but very comfortable and good value for money at 80 euros...

Having recently returned from a week's stay at the Gerloczy,
I share the opinion of many others......It's an extraordinarily
good place to call home when in Budapest.

Throughout, the hotel presents an "old world" charm. The
high ceilings, the room's furnishings and the bath's fixtures
take one back to another era yet provide for all of today's
expected comforts. I might add that the hotel generally, my
room and the café were well maintained and
especially clean!

Taking breakfast and dinner in the hotel's café gives one a good
selection of tasty choices, well presented and moderately priced.
It's hard to go wrong!

I found the staff to be very cordial, not intrusive but most helpful.
I especially appreciated being greeted with a smile and kind word
as I would come and go during my stay. You're not a stranger here.

Of course the hotel's location is a real plus. It's centrally located
and allows for an easy walk to many of the Budapest's attractions.

All told I can easily recommend Gerloczy and would certainly choose
it again should I return to Budapest.
