A long tradition of thermal cures draws travelers to this lavish, historic hotel.
Located at the foot of Gellert Hill on the Buda side of this city, this posh hotel on the Danube fills with health seekers who come for its thermal treatments. The elegant property is connected to the famous Gellert Spa, and all guests are granted complimentary access (on their first visit, and half off for all subsequent visits) through a private elevator down to the city’s most beautiful thermal bath. The spa features an indoor aerated swimming pool, steam room, solarium, and beauty and massage treatments. Medical spa offerings are also available, including inhalation, balneo, physical, mechano-, hydro- and electro-therapy.
More than 200 guest rooms, deluxe rooms and suites are decorated in traditional style, with beautiful wood floors and paneled walls in some, and flat-screen TVs, safes, mini-bars and free Wi-Fi in all. There are four options for house wining and dining, beginning with the Panoráma Restaurant serving international and traditional Hungarian dishes in a setting overlooking the Danube. In addition, Gellért Pub & Brasserie, the city's oldest beer house, offers a seasonal menu with craft beers and Hungarian wines; Gellért Espresso presents enticing desserts; and Törley Bar specializes in vintages from the century-old Törley Winery. Many of the conference and event venues display appealing details in keeping with the hotel's historic character.
