I stayed at the Gellert from 20 to 31 August ,2020. The hotel had just opened again after many months of closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I was delighted to see that,although there was a reduced service,(coffee shop and Panorama restaurant closed,though not the brasserie),the staff,whether at the reception,on the door,housekeeping,in the breakfast restaurant or in the brasserie,offered the 5-star service that I have received on my previous visits. I was sad that some of the staff I knew from previous visits were no longer there,but those who were did everything to be welcoming and provide excellent service. I wish to congratulate the staff. I am sure that,when all this doubt and uncertainty is over,the Gellert will be as strong as ever I look forward to my next visit . My best wishes to all. Keep safe and well. Noël ,Lille,FRANCE

Visited this amazing hotel in August. Sadly, due to Covid 19, the spa and swimming pool were closed. But, the health and safety in the hotel was excellent. Safety measures were in place and obvious, but not so much so that they were 'in your face'. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly; the restaurant staff were friendly and the hygiene in the restaurant was second to none. All tables were shown to be clean with a sign, which was removed when we sat down. The range of breakfast food was excellent. Cooked items, cold meats, salad, fruit, cereals, breads and croissants etc. There was a range of coffees and teas as well as fruit juice that was very tasty. The location is perfect for trams and buses in to the centre of Budapest, up to the castle and for the metro. Bars and restaurants very close by serving real Hungarian food and beers. Travel to the centre of town takes about 10 minutes on the tram; the market is one tram stop away. The interior of the hotel is fascinating. Stained glass windows are on the stairs; there are pictures of the hotel as it was when first opened and the original lift is still in situ. Our room was an economy double, but we couldn't fault it. En suite, with toiletries, towels and bathrobes; small fridge, large wardrobe, free standing fan (it was very hot, so this was much appreciated) and a small balcony. Good sleep quality and always cleaned well. We will definitely return when we can to enjoy the spa and thermal baths.
