Breakfast was delicious with a great variety to choose from. Staff were friendly and helpful. Gellert baths next door is a must to visit also. Would definitely stay at...

Wood paneling and worn carpets aside, the Gellert is a grood choice. It is in a great location--on the Danube and walkable to good restaurants and attractions on both sides. Very professional staff. The baths are nice and the wave pool is fun.

This hotel is in a central location, is elegant and has old world charm. The spa, free one time entrance for hotel guests, is nice, clean, and relaxing.

The hotel is a great historical place. I loved the mood from the 20s and also appreciated the easy access to the bath. The breakfast is excellent and varied. The personnel is friendly. I also liked the furniture in the room. The bathroom was quite small, but I managed alright.

Staying in Gellert Hill

Neighbourhood 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.
