The hotel is in a good location and has a wonderful outer beauty, however it is beyond horrible within the room.
The beds were old and worn, the chairs were neat 1920's vintage but oil stained from years of use. The tv was old square style that sat behind a pillar for a blocked view. The finish on the porcelin tub was completely gone and the toilet has been leaking so long the floor had rotted away.
The lobby and stair cases are grand and are well kept. Don't be fooled by the replies by the hotel, they have not renovated the rooms, only your first impressions.
- 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
