I honestly couldn't fault this hotel at all. Amazing service from all the staff and they couldn't do enough to help us. The room was lovely and spacious and we had a fantastic view from the balcony onto the Danube. Breakfast every morning was super tasty, and the hotel itself is stunning. I would recommend this to anyone going to budapest!

"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.

Explore our hotel


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.

    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.

    Good: Good location, nice people. I'm sure this property was spectacular in the past and is just a little worn now but still a great place . We also very much enjoyed the spa visit which was included with the room as well as the excellent breakfast . Bad: Room was quite comfortable but needed small repairs and updating

    A wonderful old hotel with big comfortable rooms, excellent restaurant and bistro. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The place is well located for visits to the major sites of Budapest. Acess to Gellert Baths and massages is brilliant and very enjoyable. All in all I had a fabulous time.

    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.
