The Gellert hotel in Budapest is a grand old building with few amenities. Even the "Superior" room has only a noisy portable airconditioner. Don't even think about booking an Economy room because it does not have airconditioning and the beds are awful. The beds in the Superior rooms are tolerable at best. Also, at check out, I gave them some cash (HUF's) to apply towards the bill and they didn't. I realized this once we got back home. We trust hotels in general but in this case I guess the clerk decided to keep the cash hoping that I wouldn't notice....and I didn't...until I checked my credit card statement when I got back home.
The positives: one trip to the in-house baths are included and the included buffet breakfasts are terrific.
- 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
