    Location otherwise very old furnitures and not comfortable

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The Art Deco architecture was stunning. We loved the location - overlooking the River Danube. we took advantage of the proximity of the hotel to the less tourist-centred area further away from the river on the Buda side.

    The lack of air conditioning in the warm nights made it difficult to get a good night's sleep.

    free entry to spa area, actually the main selling point of the hotel

    rooms/ furniture very dated, in serious need of renovation

  • 7.0
    Very good

    The hotel was very central and it was very convenient to have the hotel spa facilities which we could access straight from our room.

    We stayed in a superior double room and would have expected air conditioning for the price and this room discription. It was also described as spacious it was however a meduim sized hotel room. The food in the Panoramic restaurant was not as good as in the Brasserie.

    Nice

    The beautiful Grand Hotel which carries both its past exuberant spa life in its magnificent pre Art Nouveau architecture, imposing entrance, beautiful marble and exceptional thermal pools as well as its scars from its near past history. A unique place that survived. Our room with the direct view over the Danube was comfortable and clean.The direct access to the thermal pools from the Hotel was convenient and the Hotel allowed us to use them freely.The desk staff is very helpful, speaking fluent English.The frequent streetcars in front of the Hotel took us over the bridge or towards the castle in no time.

    Little by little modern amenities are added, some air conditioning would be nice, as well as swimming caps and slippers for the spa facilities.

    Perfect

    I came with my sister on a trip which involved dental treatment. We both loved the hotel. All the historical details the wonderful stained glass windows and the interior and exterior architecture.The spa was wonderful. The staff were very kind and helpful. Location was ideal for shopping and restuarants. The food was good and I will certainly stay there again when I next comeback to Budapest.

    Perfect

    The hotel is situated by the Danube, with a beautiful view of the other shore. The turkish-style baths are spectacular, the staff generally very helpful in an old-fashioned, days-gone-by kind of way. A really lovely place to stay.

    The staff at breakfast were a little absent, while the maids tended to be somewhat abrupt, trying to tidy the room at strangely early hours (9am). The lack of free internet was irritating.

    Perfect

    Everything was highly satisfactory.The access to the spa facilities was outstanding.The spa facilities are fantastic.The breakfast buffet is one of the best we have ever had anywhere.The location of the hotel is very convenient and the tram stop in front of the hotel is great.We had a great time in your lovely city, substantially due to your hotel and staff.The interior and exterior of the hotel need some work and renovation/restauration, but this fact did not detract from the charm of the old gellert.

    Location and the bath off course

    I always read reviews that talk about one specific incident and I think it is not important, but this one I decided to share... On our first night, about 1am we were woke up by a strong music. We called the reception to see if they could figure out where did the music came from 30 minutes later we called again and they said that there were nobody above us so they didn't know what we were talking about. My husband had to dress up, leave the room and search it for himself to find out that was the crew cleaning the kitchen that had put heavy metal on! Since we were in the first floor... Well you got the picture! We were not happy then but makes a funny story to tell your friends later on.

    Perfect

    I am oft in Gellert hotel because this is for sure the best hotel in all Budapest and also because the Gellert palace one hundred Y.old with the very nice spa has a wonderful view on Buda hill and on the danube (Duna for the Hungarian)! All is perfect...the rooms the staff very kind and the rich breakfast with very many cakes and ham types. I have already told about Gellert to my friends in all Europe. Dott.Agnelli

    All was perfect!!!!
