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

OUR HOTEL IS TEMPORARILY NOT ACCEPTING GUESTS

In view of the situation regarding the coronavirus, we're providing a free booking modification and cancellation opportunity for our guests in order to give them some extra flexibility in their travel plans.

DETAILS >>

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.

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).  

Dining

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.

Meetings

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.

    Good: We had a wonderful visit to Budapest and the Danubius Hotel Gellert was a key part in making it a great stay. The room was great and very comfortable. Morning breakfast was great and made every day enjoyable. We had the opportunity to enjoy the Gellert spa while there - a truly enjoyable experience. Bad: The only issue was the distance from the old town and St Stephens - but the hotel was so wonderful we didn't really mind the walk.
