Good for the spa, but not for room

The hotel is convenient if you're going to the Gellert thermal spa. My room was outdated and could use updating. It didn't reflect the grandeur of the historic hotel. Also, wi-fi is charged separately!! My room faced the courtyard, so it was quiet.

Very good and friendly attentive service.

Although this hotel is very old and in need of a good refurbishment particularly on the accommodation side I have NO COMPLAINTS. The location is superb. Even though the rooms are pretty basic this is more than compensated for by the other facilities in the hotel. The Spa and pools are an absolute dream. The breakfast buffet great and the other restaurants very good and reasonably priced. All in all I would definately return to this hotel next time I go to Budapest.

great place to stay in Budapest

Staff was wonderful, rooms very old and worn out, but very clean and bathrooms were modern. Loved having the Gellert baths there - probably would never have tried them if they hadn't been in my hotel
