This hotel is my happy place when I need to chill. I can just think of it, and I feel peaceful, and elegant. It is hard to believe there are still places in the world like this. I know there are others there in Budapest that are elegant and old, but the location, the staff, the baths, it just goes... More

The Danubiushotels Gellert hotel is a potentially first rate establishment seriously dragged down by penny pinching rule by accountants. It charges ten euro a day for wifi in room which ought to be, and is, standard in top, and even economy, hotels about the world. Rooms do not have complementary tea, coffee or other standard services. Towels are cheap and... More

I stayed in this hotel a few days ago and I miss it too much. My time there was the best, I love the furniture and décor. Lots of great choices for breakfast and the staff couldn't be better. Close to all attractions and shopping. The spa was great as you get a free pass and then half price the... More

Have stayed at The Gellert many times and am pleased to report that, in 2014, it hasn't changed, It really is the 'grand old lady' of The Danube. If you like faded elegance, huge high ceilinged cavernous rooms, somewhat old fashioned decor and superb old fashioned service, you will love it. If not stay at The Intercontinental over the river!

I stayed in one of the riverview rooms together with my boyfriend. We had chosen this hotel because it was recommended in the book 1000 places to see before you die. Even though the recommendation is for the Gellert Baths, we wanted to stay in the Hotel. I got a bit worried when I read up on Tripadvisor, but wanted... More

I really wanted to like this hotel... I really wanted to. But, in the end, I was left disappointed. It is a grand old building that have really been something in its heyday. However, that time seems to have long since passed, leaving behind the remains. The Good: the location. At the foot of the "freedom bridge," short walk to... More

If you want an enchanting hotel in the heart of Central Europe, hotel Gellert in Budapest is for you. It’s an impressive Art Noveau building with magnificent stained glass windows decorating the stairs. The position on the Danube riverbank ,in front of the Szabadsag bridge, is ideal to explore the city. The hotel guests have one free admission to the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Gellert. It's stunning to look at from the outside and when you enter the lobby. The room we had was very dated and old-fashioned but we liked the vintage look about the furniture and decoration and found the room and bed very comfortable. The bonus is that you can walk straight into the... More

I organised a conference over 4 days in February. Overall I was really disappointed with the quality and service we received especially as it was pricey. We booked superior rooms and some smelt or stale smoke and the others just smelt moldy. The bathrooms were horrible as well. Rooms got really hot at night but you couldn't open the windows... More

First the positive, the hotel is clean, very well located close to the main city attractions and the commercial district. The Gellert Spa is within the complex and a delightful place to be. The downside is that the hotel is quite old and shows its age in the room furniture and public spaces. Breakfast was usually included but the restaurant... More
