"Back to the 60's" Danubius Hotel Gellert Tip by cup0joe

Danubius Hotel Gellert, Budapest: 4,859 reviews and 34 photos

The hotel seems to have been caught in a time warp. 60's decor mixed with the old Art Deco. The cafe off to the side should be in a tour listing just for the novelty of it. Kitch I tell you!

We stayed in a room that had not been updated. Nothing to write home about.

So make sure you request a room in the new wing.

Check out the hallway leading to the elevator to the bathhouse. I'm sure it was in a James Bond scene. White melanine walls with an illuminated drop ceiling.

Unique Qualities: Breakfast tip...the buffet is grande. Get there well before it ends or you will not get a seat for a while and when you do the good stuff will be gone.

If you stay here, you get full use of the bathhouse! Steam yourself silly!

Address: Szt Gellert Ter 1, , Budapest
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Can't miss it. Right over the bridge. Facing the old district.
