worst rooms ever experienced

We stayed here late August 2014. Our room was filthy & disgusting. Every fitting & piece of furniture was appallingly old, run down, dirty, unclean & unwashed for heaven knows how long. Bed was too disgusting to sleep on, pillows showed stains from previous victims of this hotel. Every piece of furniture was badly damaged because it was so old. Our room was so filthy we couldn't bare to touch anything. There was a buildup of filth in every corner, most noticeable in the bathroom. We asked for another room which turned out to be equally as bad so we can only say the hotel needs to be totally gutted and start again. The hallways and doors to rooms make you think you're in a mental asylum. The location is great, right on the Danube and walking distance to the city centre. We were too appalled by our room to appreciate the view of the Danube & city. Morning couldn't come quick enough to get out of there. Never again Gellert.

Grand Hotel, Great Experience!

Located next to the Liberty Bridge on the Buda side of the Danube River this hotel is stone built, very old and very grand. It's long history depicted on the walls as you walk it's corridors. The friendly staff allowed us to check in early with our heavy bags and even upgraded our view to overlook the Liberty Bridge and the Cave Church with our own terrace/balcony despite only affording a courtyard view online. The rooms were clean and tidy, fixtures and features as expected. I don't tend to dwell on hotel rooms as they are much the same. However that balcony and the view changed everything. My girlfriend and I spent the late evening enjoying the view of the river bridge and the rest of the city lit up in the dark of night enjoying a bottle of wine between us chatting about the day gone, watching the world pass us by. Priceless experience! We also ate and drank at the Hotel Brasserie (Söröző) in the early afternoon, enjoying the sun outside. Some interesting English translations on the menu, I ordered the starter "Mini Pig Knuckle Bun" which was actually meant to be "Piglet Chop" in a bun. Very nice! It does help to have a Hungarian speaking friend with you in this city.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Technically the Gellért Bathhouse (Fürdő) is a separate company to the hotel although it shares the same building however hotel guests get one free admission per booking plus discounted rates after that. If you visit Budapest you must visit the Bathhouses too!

Old world glamour all for show

This hotel is undoubtedly one of the best for location and looks - old world glamour personified situated in the heart of the city right on the river. And I believe their thermal baths are terrific, but I can't comment personally as I didn't try them. Maybe this hotel is relying a little too much on its reputation because I found their more modern requirements less than perfect: front dest and dining room staff were generally curt and unhelpful, though other staff members were exactly the opposite; corridors containing our rooms away from the showpiece public areas look like the entrance to hospital wards; and our bathroom was scratched, stained, and chipped - and except for some basic shampoo bereft of the toiletries you come to expect from good hotels these days. Worst however was the bathtub in which we had to stand to shower didn't drain properly so that by the time the shower was over we were standing in a foot of water containing what looked like decades of other peoples' detritus! If the old world glamour and sophistication of one of the lovlient hotels in the world are what you are looking for then this is the place to go. But if mod cons are more your cup of tea then head for one of the big American chain hotels.

Unforgettable stay

This hotel is excellent by all means and is very good value for money. The thermal baths are amazing and can give you a relaxing time. The breakfast they offer is very rich with a lot of varieties. My only negative comment is on the size of the rom which is rather small.

An overwhelming reception, very caretaking staff and a breathtaking view when we arrived. A bit disappointed of the room though, small and a little shabby. Delicious breakfast!

Comittee Dinner male ex school pals

Good.Breakfast a bit chaotic as some tables not cleared and others cleared as soon as one goes up for more.A puzzle to locate cutlery cups and water for tea tepid. Bar small. Tipping expectation everywhere possibly as a result of many US visitors. Old world decency but rooms a bit worn. Would use again but not with wives as they would want higher standards
