"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: Due to early check out we have been given breakfast package which was very generous, two sandwiches (vegetarian one and roast beef one, apple juice, sparkling water, an apple and an orange. Hotel is with a long tradition and you can feel it. We enjoyed swimming in a pool (spa fee is payable also for hotel guests but I understand at reduced rate). Make sure you have a shower cap with you as you cannot swim in the pool without it. Cap from a bathroom would do nicely, otherwise you have to buy one - it is cheaper at the entrance and much more expensive when you come into the spa. We also tried brasserie for dinner, very nice meals and drinks. Waitress recommended to me Hungarian red wine, Bull's blood, very good one. Their poppy seed's noodles are excellent. Hotel staff is excellent (however in spa not so much, even few guys were very kind) and everything worked out smoothly, from checking in, to ordering breakfast packages (it seems they have them ready anyhow) to booking the airport transfer. Our room had beautiful view on Danube. First time I slept in this hotel in 1998 and always wanted to come again with my wife. It took it a while... Number of tram lines stop in front of the hotel so it is easy to go to other parts of town and sights. Bad: Not really that I did not like, but some of the furniture and bathroom show the age of the hotel. Probably the biggest issue we had was that in one electric socket, fridge and TV there were no electricity. We used other sockets to charge our devices, instead of watching TV we took a walk through nearby (across the bridge) Vaci utca and had drinks in brasserie. I am sure they will handle this problem in no time.
