The Gellert Hotel has lots of character, and is in a great location overlooking the Danube and an easy walk to the major sights. The room we stayed in was large and well furnished. Service was good and the breakfast was pretty good.

We love old buildings and this one is a beautiful old building with so much character. Loved it. Breakfast was awesome and included in the price. Location was the best...walk into town across the lovely Green Bridge or take the number 7 bus, runs every 7/8 minutes. Access to the Gellert Spa Baths simple, and is a wonderful way to spend a couple of relaxing hours each day. Thoroughly recommend this grand old hotel
