Hotel Gellért - Thermal Bath Hotel In BudapestHotel  

The last days of the decadent Habsburg Empire

The Hotel is named after St Gellert who was a visionary monk and priest who lived in the 10th Century AD. Situated between Gellert Hill and the banks of the Danube the Gellert Hotel sits on a site that has been used for many centuries.

You see, it is the location of a popular thermal spa. The Hungarians have a strong tradition of spas and baths. Indeed, there has been accommodation for visitors to this site since the early 1800s. The Gellert Hotel was finished in 1918 and remains one of Budapest’s most famous landmarks. The architecture is Art Nouveau, which was the style at the time, and remains an exceptional example of that aesthetic movement.

The fabulous Gellért Spa is attached to the hotel. There, ancient springs and volcanic waters fill many baths. In this masterpiece of design, choose from many pools, indoor and out, smell the sulfur amid echoing voices along the tiled corridors. There is also an extensive gym, physiotherapy, and aromatherapy on offer.
