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.
