They must think they are special.

Well the spa is very nice. Now first no wifi in the rooms unless you pay 25 dollars a day. Second no air conditioning. So I leave the window open. They I have perverted guy on roof masterbating outside my window. I call staff and they laugh. ( yes funny I agree in one aspect) but I would believe they would still do something about it. Yet 20 minutes later nothing done. So I had to keep my shades pulled in a hot non air conditioned room. Oh the rooms are old I mean old. Sink is 1 foot wide. Shower is a hand hold but no holder. Serious not a hotel I will visit twice. I will say the breakfast was excellent. Ok that is all in a nut shell.

Faded Glory and Rude Staff

The exterior of the hotel is quite glamorous and beautiful but the interior was unimpressive. Rooms were nice enough and breakfast was good enough. Some of the staff members were quite rude. The baths aren't that great. I was much better off on my second trip to Budapest staying elsewhere for half the price, including a great breakfast and free Wifi in the room. The Gellert only offers the latter in public areas. On my second trip I discovered the Szechenyi Baths which were vastly superior and quite inexpensive.

This is a very nice hotel for the money. Great staff and very accommodating. The rooms are somewhat dated but clean. The continental breakfast is not your basic breakfast and probably one of the best we had our experience traveling Europe- wonderful hot items to choose from. Definitel recommend this hotel.
