Don't stay at the Gellert if you want 'spin' or frills. But if you want genuine style and elegance of old Hungary, this is the place to stay. Riveting.
And, wow it would be difficult to beat the charm of ancient Budapest.
Just returned from a week in the Gellert, 2nd floor room overlooking the wonderous Danube. Travelled alone. Explored every day, buses and trams, river trips, took the waters, ate out in town and on the hotel's brasserie terrace.
Friendly staff, good welcome. Met the guest relations manager Mihaly Vasony, kindness itself.
One day the hotel will be modernised. Hope there are not too many frills.
- 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
