Located at the foot of Gellért Hill, this Art Nouveau style hotel has been an important landmark in Budapest for more than 80 years. The building also houses the world-famous Gellért Baths, offering indoor and outdoor bathing. Built between 1912 and 1918 and inspired by the Vienna Secession, the German Jugendstil, Art Nouveau from Belgium and France and traditional Hungarian designs like Zsolnay mosaics, the Gellért is the most photographed spa in Hungary. Hotel guests have free access to Gellért Baths through a private elevator in the building. Breakfast is included in most room rates.

There are two restaurants, a cafe and a lobby bar onsite. The Panorama Restaurant, and terrace with views of the Danube, serves Hungarian cuisine, along with gypsy music in the evenings. The Gellért Brasserie Restaurant provides a casual atmosphere along with a selection of Hungarian and international dishes and a wide range of draught, bottled and specialty beers.
