An Old and Poorly Kept Hotel
Decent size room; location near River; restaurant on the ground floor; public transit options
Very old with signs of deferred maintenance. E.g. The upstairs bathroom leaked and made a mess of our bathroom. The good thing is the hotel staff came right away and fixed the problem. The location of hotel is far from the major tourist attractions as it is on the Buda side of the river. The SPA IS A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT: it reminds me an old hotel swimming pool with freezing cold water.
Chabby chic with great breakfast!
Staff was attentive and pleasant. Breakfast is amazing, huge and many choices which is included in room price. Price was very reasonable. Access to the bath house is so convenient and guests get discounted entry, it's wonderful to walk down in your big terry cloth robe and enjoy the bath house, towels are also provided by the hotel, added perk. Tram is directly across the street and allows access to all directions in the city. Views are stunning of the bridges and river. We were there in November so not crowded at all.
The furniture in the rooms is shabby chic, looks like the original furniture from 1918. Despite the furniture it's comfortable and the linens are clean and good quality. They could use new pillows, they are down but very flat.
Fantastic Location, Individaul Character
The Location just on the edge of the town on the riverside is excellent. if your expecting the sterile look of a premier inn or other large chain of hotels then don't stay here. The Gellert gives you glimpse of a bygone age. Wood panelling and colourful glass decorate the interior. Yes its a bit frayed around the edges, but then so am I and I am not 100 years old. The service was attentive and helpful and the facilities more than acceptable for its price bracket and rating. Yes you can get a more modern and predictable experience but I consider myself an individual character in life and so the Gellert has individual character. I came to see the city of Budapest and not spend all my time looking under the carpet for hotel faults, so savour its uniqueness, charm, history and enjoy. Thank you for the experience.
Breakfast was a little to canteen like, but other than that good value for money.
Old world charm
The hotel is old but clean and well maintained. Our rooms were large and the bathrooms huge by European standards. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast is great and access is very easy by metro and bus, both right across the street from the hotel. The thermal spas were fantastic and although busy not crowded. Use the spas on the side of the swimming pool, it attracts less visitors. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Will certainly return.
Tram lines right next to it, friendly staff, beautiful building - inside and out, amazing breakfast buffet, very nice restaurant and bar attached to it, comfortable beds, easy access to Gellert Baths.
The carpet and minibar in my room looked a little outdated, but everything was clean and comfortable so that was just a minor issue.
english breakfast, clean bathroom, large portions in restaurants, hotel staff speaks english and german, great view (danube, hills)
room needs refurbishment, hotel price is too expensive
Excellent staff and services. Very quiet and confortable place. Great value for money spent. Perfect location. Beautiful thermal baths included in the price of the room.
Maybe the moquette on the floor in the room
The Spa was relaxing
The room was old and worn down. I had better expectations.
all was perfect....all was ok....staff and rooms too!!! i tell to all customers that gellert is shure the best hotel in budapest....no chance for others hotel to compare with gellert position too!!!! dr agnelli
the Internet access is expensive and in fact does not work as the company that supplies it did not solve the problem that when (as very often happens) the connection goes down there is need to call the company for a logout before you can login again
access to the spa
location and facilties
The interior common areas are beautiful. The room I eventually received was great. The breackfast buffet was the best of 10 hotels in 3 countries.
The "single" room was a hot, noisy shoebox, not merely a "room with one bed". An absence of water in the shower forced a hasty, gracious upgrade to a lovely room. The baths were dilapidated and disappointing- website photos out-dated. Thermal bath not available to females- upgrade in progress, I think (hope)..
The spa for goodness sake! Best I have experienced, but everything elsewas fine too.
No, not really
The spaciousness of the passages and beautiful stain glass windows
No facilities in the rooms for making tea
