Such a great old building which must have had a massive wow factor. It is now ageing with some grace. Great location and staff. Good varied breakfast. Beautiful hot spring baths next door with access from inside the hotel - so relaxing.

Dear Diana W,

You have very kind words on our Danubius Hotel Gellért. Thank you very much for that. You are right, we are ageing a bit but the staff does its best to make your stay an enjoyable one. We actually have planes now to refurbish the hotel. Restored in its original form and charme, it will be the best in Hungary.

Gellert fulfills my expectations completely. Although they seem simple, they are not normally met elsewhere. Great Service starting from the door and reception. Combination with bath. No stress with earlyy check-In. calling and Fixing Airport shuttle. Finally free wifi in the room. Specific wish for room (411) always considered. Breakfast satistfactory. Overall service-oriented friendliness of staff. Only Little Thing: mattresses should be harder (French-style) and thus more comfortable for the back.

Dear Christian R,

It is always nice to hear complemantary words about our hotel. We try to keep the high standards of service in our truely „one off” property. Having free wifi is just one example of moving in the right direction. The reception and front office will always do its best to make your stay comfortable. We are working on changing the mattresses. Thank you again for your comments.

We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again.

Kindest regards,

A Hotel with great history and hospitality, located at the most beautiful place, close to center and all important and interesting thing Budapest has to show. Since 1972 I´m guest at Gellert and always was the best. I like it very much.

It needs a romm,s change.
It could be one of the best hotels in Budapest, but it need to be reformed.
An excepcional location but some rooms looks like pensions.
Good breakfast, good termal baths,
Metro in front of hotel and many trams

Dear JGA59,

Thank you for your comment. Yes we need an investment to refurbish the whole hotel. The plans are almost ready to go ahead with the project and after that we will then be definitaly the best hotel in Budapest.

The rooms are a bit outdated, but the charm of this hotel are the Gellert thermal baths. Conveniently the stay in hotel gives you one entry to the baths, so enjoy the full day there even when you can. Just a little note, when you do so, that you need to have a bank card or some cash with you, because in the therms' cafeterias they don't have a system where you could have drinks or food by paying for them on the exit.

Dear Hettel,

Your discription of the hotel is very flattering. I think you found the ambience of our almost 100 years old establisment. Being 100 years old means, we have a lot of history. We are sharing the building with the spa as we are two separate companies. Maybe in the not too distance future it will be possible to put your spa consumtion charges on your hotel bill as well.

Thank you very much for your comments.
