"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.

Most have captivating views over the Danube or Gellért Hill, and guests from all parts of the world keep returning, as anxious to seek out the Hotel Gellért as they are to visit Budapest itself.

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).
The hotel’s guests have access to the spa at a discount during their stay.
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.
