Simply not Worth it. Looks historical and impressive but ain't delivering at all on any criterias. The hotel is in deep need of a renovasjon of it's roms, it could be done without rendering the historical atmosphere.

The best things about this hotel are its exterior, its staff, and its proximity to the Gellert baths. If the baths are your primary draw, this is an OK place. If you want to see the city and do other things, then I'd stay someplace on the Pest side and plan to go to a different bath. The room smelled...

The rooms are big, location is central and Gellert baths are inside the hotel. Breakfast was outstanding. The hotel could use renovating as it feels old but overall it's pretty good. I would definitely recommend it.

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.
