"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.

Services & Amenities

Free WiFi is provided throughout Danubius Hotel Gellért, and there is a business centre too. Room service is available 24 hours, and there are laundry, dry cleaning, babysitting and transfer services. If you have a vehicle, there is a garage 150 metres from the hotel which guests may use at a discounted price.




Food, culture, history and entertainment – Budapest is the compact capital that has it all! Whether you’re visiting for a week or a weekend, you’ll find our city and spa hotels have all the top-quality services and facilities you need.

    Good: This was not my first stay here, so, obviously, I am a satisfied, returning guest. However, while the purpose of this trip was business, and I picked the absolutely smallest room I could find (I was planning on being out late with a client) - and, yes, the room DID look like a movie set from 1969 - I had an ulterior motive: to wake up extra early and enjoy the thermal baths at 6:00 am before anyone else arrived. It was heaven! Aside from myself and about a dozen local Hungarians (and some very serious Japanese), I could soak in absolute silence without the din of summer tourists. By 8:00 am I was famished for the Gellert's well-known breakfast buffet (if you can't find something there to enjoy, you must be fasting) and by tram (directly across the street) I was at my buiness meeting by 10:00. To enjoy these historic baths in near silence is a magical, restorative experience, and if you are an early bird, you will not be disappointed (Gellert Baths open at 6:00 with direct, discounted access from the hotel). Bad: The mattress may have been older than me, and may have felt a bit like sleeping on the ground, but at the extremely low discounted rate that I paid, I still enjoyed it very much. Would I stay in one of these single rooms again? Depends on my bursitis . . .

    Good: Great location, views and old world charm. Bad: Could do with the interior upgrades that they say are going to happen?
