Just as expected, fantastic view on the river, unique swimming pool. An old-fashion way to stay in Budapest dreaming of the golden ages. The bistrot has a marvellous goose liver and perfect Wiener schnitzel

Great location and lovely staff. Room, however, was very tired and requires an upgrade. Value for money is the overall opinion, with a wonderful morning spent enjoying the adjacent spa facilities and Thai massage.

Beautiful old hotel overlooking the Danube. Interiors are in dire need of refurbishment. River view rooms are noisy as traffic, party boats and road works (at time of stay) are constant. Good location for baths, hills and metro. Staff helpful and courteous.

Okay - so we wanted a bit of faded grandeur....... and we certainly got it. Art Nouveau meets iron curtain nostalgia. It has its charm if you've a strong constitution and a penchant for the eclectic. Orange squash for breakfast though - tut tut.

The only thing I was worried about when going to this hotel was how cool the rooms were at night. Since you pay much more money for air-conditioning in your room, I opted for the basic room without it. I may have been lucky with my room placement (my window-door was looking straight at Gellért Hill) but my room was...

Staying in Gellert Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the landscape with its imposing 19th century construction, a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being distracted by the phenomenal view over the Danube and the eight bridges crossing. Once on Gellért Hill however, one mustn’t miss the famous Gellért Baths. Budapest is renown for its thermal waters and its baths, and the Gellért Baths are housed in an impressive art nouveau structure. Its interior design, with its many mosaics, recalls the preceding relationships the city has had with healing springs and saunas, traditionally used within this neighborhood since the Ottoman Empire.
