    We enjoyed our stay at the Gellert hotel, it had a special feeling of old and grandiose. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas. My daughter did not so much care for the bath, we went on xmas day and they were quit crowded.

    Beautiful views, Charming, quaint hotel.
    On the positive side: Great location with easy access to the Tram system (if you can figure it out), taxi access & at the foot of the Liberty Bridge, Cave Church, and Liberty statue/park. Walking access across the river to "downtown" and Parliament side. Near-by restaurants, coffee houses and cafes. The spa/thermal baths are located next door and there is direct access from the interior of the hotel. The down side: Upon our Friday check-in, nothing was said about restaurants being closed in the hotel due to private parties. The front desk seemed not to know about this. They also didn't tell us that Sunday breakfast would close before the advertised time of 11:00 AM. We arrived at 10:15 and they were closed. The twin beds are about six inches off the floor with sheets that are too small. They can't tuck under the ends. Mattresses are hard. The bathrooms...well, not the cleanest. There were short black straight hairs on the sink, floor and bath tub. Additionally, similar length and color hair was on the interior folds of the two bath towels that were on the Heated towel rack, making me think that 1, the bathroom wasn't cleaned, or 2, they reuse the same towels. The water pressure in the sink as well as the shower is very low and the shower water line leaked at the head. The floor drain in the bathroom had small bugs crawling out of it and the tub had a couple of bugs. Only a couple of English speaking TV stations. Needs updating. Very dark halls at night.

    Outstanding value for the price
    The best part of the hotel is the free admission to the baths and is worth staying in solely for that reason. Each morning I was excited to wake up for the free breakfast!!! The hotel is perfect for cooler weather because there is no air conditioning. Previous guests said the rooms were old, but I thought it was nothing but comfortable and charming. Its location is a bit distant from the remainder of Budapest's attractions, but walking everywhere might not have been a bad thing because of Hungary's rich cuisine!! The room walls are quite thin and I was disturbed by an aggressively loud snorer, which was the only downside of the hotel.
