Very nice and convenient place to stay, walking around easy, good transportation. Excellent thermal pools and breakfast .Room cleaning every day. This is the second time I stayed here, no disappointing. Would stay again.

Possibility the best hotel in Europe, if you prefer a classic building, staff, old-world atmosphere, and charm of a historic city. Loved the location, the room view, the hotel amenities, the breakfast, and Tram out front of building. When I return to Budapest I will only stay in this hotel.

Ir appears needs verter maintenance very old building

A wonderful reminder of the past. It isn't as elegant as it used to be, but the intent is still there and it was a pleasure to experience today's world and the past in such a nice intertwining.

Lovely hotel at a central location, public transportation is right outside. The guests get one free entry to the Gellert baths, that is a BIG plus!!! Also, the breakfast buffet is LAVISH!!!! Uncountable choices even for the vegans. Thanks Gellert, for such a beautiful stay in one of the best cities of the world 🙏!

The Gellert Hoel has a magnificent history but is worn and needs major updating. The. Lobby, elevators and restaurants are in fairly good shape. The hallways however and the rooms are in need of renovations. The carpeting needs to be stretched and is full of stamps the walls were full of marks either from luggage carts or cleaning crew carts. My bathroom the caulking around the tub and there was an actual hole in a door that led to an outdoor area that was covered with masking tape. It is convenient for use of the spot as there is a special entrance for hotel guests. The breakfast was generous with a wide assortment of items which would suit almost any taste. However this is another example of the glory days gone. The breakfast room had linen tablecloths that were not changed when a previous breakfast guess had spilled and left stains on the table cloths. If they are not going to be cleaning it would be better to just have a table that they could wipe down. Another concern i involves security. The hotel uses old-style keys with the heavy attachment that you turned in at the desk when you leave the hotel. Each time you return all you would do is give them a room number And they would hand you a key. There was no verification the person is actually booked in the room matching the key they requested .
