We stayed as part of a tour for 2 nights. It really is a beautiful hotel in an absolutely beautiful location, overlooking the Danube River. The staff were very very friendly and allowed us to check in at 1030, which was unexpected. WiFi was good. And of course 1 free access to the famous Gellert baths. The breakfast was also very good.
Down side to the hotel. The rooms are very outdated, they just look old, there was a tear in the fabric of the head board over the bed. Also there was no air conditioning which really made it uncomfortable after exploring Budapest all day. We did have a pedestal fan, however no power points close enough to the bed to be able to use it.
Would stay here again, under the condition of having air conditioning or at least the ability to actual use the fan.
- 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
