Lonely Planet review
Buda’s grande dame is a 234-room four-star hotel with loads of character. Completed in 1918, the hotel contains examples of the late Art Nouveau, notably the thermal spa's entrance hall and Zsolnay ceramic fountains. Prices depend on which way your room faces and what sort of bathroom it has. Use of the thermal baths is free for hotel guests.
The Gellért was the inspiration (but not the actual film location) for the hotel in Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, which opened and then vanished without a trace in early 2014.
Our independent authors have visited Danubius Hotel Gellért and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Gellért Hill & Tabán.
