Walked over the bridge and we stopped off for a coffee. Sat outside in the sunshine - clean , good service, free wifi. Not busy and in no rush to move us on so stayed longer than anticipated and ordered some more coffee. Staff, polite and helpful

Had a few issues during our stay with staff being rude to us, not all staff were rude but a significant number. There is no pool at this hotel and yet they advertise the baths being part of the hotel, yet if you go on more than one occasion you are charged the cost of a dinner in Budapest. There...

Lovely breakfast, especially on the terrace, great to have the wonderful bath round the corner, convenient location.Also appreciated the huge room with Danube view. The mobile air-conditioning unit in our room worked well to cool down the room within a very short time - just as well, as it was rather noisy. The hotel has a definitive nostalgic charm that...

If the hotel is unique and has many clients, the owners should invest more in restauration of the rooms, facade etc. They seem to love more the money it produces, than the beauty of the building We suspect the hotel is mainly used as a cash cow for financial managers. Food was excellent and the building is unique. Use Budapest...

Very nice old style hotel. But rooms are not very fresh. Nice view over the Donau. Breakfasts need serious improvement (coffie is not 2016). The quality of the bread (dry and tasteless) is poor. Perfect old spa.

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.

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
