Good: The swimming baths & facilities were excellent. Staff very courteous & efficient. Bad: The cooked breakfast was disappointing. However the cold buffet breakfast was excellent.

"Art-nouveau extravagance – the world’s most famous spa"

The Art Nouveau style Danubius Hotel Gellért 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 Gellért hill, also houses the world-famous Gellért 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 Gellért – including American presidents and European royalty – and the hotel retains the elegant atmosphere of a bygone age. Guests can enjoy superb cuisine at the Panoráma Restaurant or Gellért Brasserie, and take advantage of wellness treatments and medical programmes at the adjacent Gellért 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.

Gellért Spa

Hotel Gellért is fortunate enough to share its building with one of the most venerated spas in Budapest. The Gellért Baths – with their stunning architecture, sun terraces and outdoor wave pool – provide a unique atmosphere. Guests face a dilemma: whether to reserve a room with a view of the Danube or the baths! Relax in the hands of skilled therapists and choose from a range of wellness treatments on offer at the Gellért Baths (operated by Budapest Gyógyfürdői és Hévizei Zrt).  


For two decades (from 1927) the great Károly Gundel was chef at the Hotel Gellért, and he played a major role in ensuring its reputation as one of the grandest hotels in the world! Today the kitchen stays true to its proud traditions, offering a selection of classic dishes, but fuses this with modern approaches to cooking. Enjoy fine dining at our á la carte Panoráma Restaurant and popular Gellért Brasserie, or relax with something lighter at our café and cocktail bar.


Hotel Gellért is one of just a handful of venues in Budapest that combine a yesteryear ambience with the modern facilities required for a successful event. The hotel has a range of halls suitable for hosting conferences, as well as indoor and outdoor spaces perfectly suited to romantic weddings.

    We had a corner suite on the 4th floor with balconies. The view from the balconies is breathtaking. You can see the Danube river, the Liberty Bridge, Gellert Hill with the Citadella and the Liberty Statue. We also enjoyed the in and outdoor thermal baths. Excellent location , friendly staff.

    My second stay here, this time for a fortnight. I like this hotel very much. My single room was quiet, and all facilities worked well. The WiFi is excellent, also the breakfast (but I did not have it every day). All the staff, from the door team to Reception and housekeepers are friendly, helpful and professional. Clearly this hotel is run to a high standard. I fully recommend it and will certainly stay here on my next visit to Budapest. I already look forward to returning to the Gellert!

    Good: FABULOUS baths; like stepping back in time! Staff were very helpful & pleasant. Extra bonus to be able to check in REALLY early after we arrived from an exhausting flight – thank you! Will visit again for sure, probably in off season. Bad: Very busy - but it was mid-season.

    The architecture was fabulous and it's detail varied. The staff were helpful and the location a short and interesting walk from so many old town sights and experiences. The wave pool in the hotels thermal baths area was fun and it was easy to get to the city's central baths by underground tube.

    Good: The reception staff were the best. Nothing was too much trouble. The location of the hotel was great, and the facilities excellent. The breakfast was great. All staff lovely. Bad: The only criticism and it's only minor was that the bathroom was tired and could do with modernising and also if they could put in at least a kettle.
