“Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Budapest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Rarely do you get such good value from a hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, from the front desk to the restaurant. The location, in the centre of the city but still tucked away in a quieter street, couldn't be better. The rooms are very tasteful.
The breakfast options are plentiful and extremely good.

Room Tip: I enjoyed the attic room more than the standard room. Also, I highly recommend having dinner here at...

Staying 4 weeks in Budapest made me looking for a comfi boutique hotel, that is not part of a big chain. I felt more than at home and I do not know how I would have survived in this high touristic season without Gerloczy.
Alle rooms are different and I liked the cosy attic rooms as much as my beloved corner room on the 3rd level.
There was nothing better than the fresh strawberry musli & orange juice in the morning.
Everything a full delite. Most important: the lovely staff who took so good care of me and my bike :)

Room Tip: there are 2 rooms with balcony (+15 €), also the corner rooms are top - spacious All rooms will mak...

Four of us stayed in the Gerloczy for the F1 weekend - we must have been in the room next to safarigirl68 as we were also on the third floor and looked out over the cafe terrace. I would also agree that the staff were excellent, both reception and cafe - nothing was too much trouble for the staff in the cafe and for the first time ever, we actually ate at our hotel every night we were there. Never done this before as we like to sample different places and experiences, so this speaks volumes for the food and service at the Gerloczy. They were also really good in helping us prepare for arrival, replying by email almost immediately when I asked about a taxi from the station. Not only did they advise us to avoid the taxi rank, but actually asked us to ring an hour away from Budapest and they would book a taxi for us from a reliable firm. Nothing seemed too much trouble and thank you Gerloczy for making our stay such a pleasure - the icing on the cake was Lewis winning the GP !!!

Room Tip: would suggest a room looking over the cafe at the front

We stayed for a long weekend at Gerloczy for the Formula1 end of July. It was scorching hot all weekend but the shady cafe terrace of the hotel was a lovely retreat! The staff were excellent, all very friendly, particularly the guy who checked us in when we arrived late on the Thursday night. We had a corner room on the third floor with views down the street above the cafe, high ceilngs, dramatic deep red fabrics and free mini bar, the air conditioning was not very effective but it didn't matter, it was cooler than the burning streets!

Food was excellent and their local house wine very nice and reasonably priced. They booked taxis and swimming bath tickets for us and reception staff were very helpful.

A word of caution though, when we booked a taxi for the F1 on Saturday the receptionist asked if we wanted an 'official' Hungaroring VIP taxi and we said yes. This was a fabulous service with set price and VIP lane off the autoroute. The next day a different receptionist booked another taxi for the Sunday and booked a different company, City Taxis - the driver was surly and grumpy, the car a bit messy and he took us all round the houses only to try and charge us extra and dumped us miles away from the gate we needed to be at, resulting in an hours walk in the heat to get to our stand. This is not a slight at the hotel, although it was the fault of the reception for not booking the taxi we asked for.

The location of Gerloczy is ideal, just a couple of blocks from the Danube and the main shopping area of Pest.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a city break in Budapest, excellent service and value for money.

First and foremost - the Gérloczy is a fabulous hotel. I had a good feeling about it when I found it online - partly because of it's style and reviews AND the fact that I had dinner at the restaurant 2011. On my first evening in Budapest me and my boyfriend stumbled upon their darling outside patio and had a romantic meal.

Now I could gush about this hotel for a long time - but I'm going to give you the best parts about the Gérloczy and what makes it stand out from the crowd.

It's said to be owned by the owner of a cheese shop.
They put out their own magazine (cool!)
The minibar's included in the prize. And it's not just stocked with water - there's soda, juice, snacks and even some bubbly. BIG points for that.
The styling is breathtaking with such an eye for detail
There's something old-world Budapest, parisian and cultural about it.
Great staff!
It takes less than two minutes to walk to Vaci Utca (the high street in Budapest) and pretty much anywhere.
They have the cutest logo.
Breakfast is a la carte. Fun!

Stay here if you're looking for something romantic, stylish and comforting. Budapest can be a hectic city so it's nice to have somewhere soft to unwind.

Room Tip: Room number one in the attic. Specify that you want room number one or ask if any of the other attic...

Gerloczy Rooms de Lux provided a wonderful haven on our recent 2 night stay in Budapest. Front desk staff were supremely helpful and courteous - answering every question and making suggestions to make our stay more enjoyable. The restaurant right outside our door served delicious food and was patronized by locals as well as tourists. We had dinner as well as both of our breakfasts there, and the waiters treated us like family. We greatly enjoyed all of our meals. The free mini-bar was a wonderful treat for our children after long days of sightseeing! If you are looking for a unique and charming boutique hotel in Budapest, look no further than the Gerloczy. We will be staying there again when we return to Budapest.
