By far, one of the best places I've stayed. We arrived late and the hotel staff checked us in with complete friendliness. Each staffer we talked to spoke English. There were a lot of American travelers as well, as this is a time share exchange hotel. Breakfast was great, hotel was clean. It is quite away from the city, but we were in a car, so didn't deal with public transportation.
I booked by gozsdu court apartment but then they gave me a different apartment opera apartments because it wasn't avail. by gozsdu and that was big beautiful and fully equipped it was a really nice stay.
Gozsdu Court self catering apartments offer comfortable accommodation in Budapest city centre , within walking distance of …More
" " Good location near metro, courteous staff, spacious clean room with free wi-fi , awesome gym with swimming pool, and price was only 60$ per night.
"-" too little tea accessories (the only one tea bag) and toiletries (for 3 nights we had only 2 small bottles of shampoo). Also we had strange smell in the room (perhabs due to the old furniture).
Excellent hotel. Very friendly staff. Room and bed made daily. Free tea, coffee and croissant for non Breakfast paying guests. Center of Budapest and many sights in easy walking distance. Beautiful park outside the hotel. Even throughout my time (10 days) I struggled to find an alternative hotel that was in a more convenient location or better condition to meet my needs.
Finally after so many years I managed to stay at the Gellert. It did not disappoint! A big plus is its location, on the banks of the Danube and right in front of a metro station. From the quaint lobby bar , cosy room and unvarnished charm, the Gellert has it all!
We stayed in the one bed apts for five days just after xmas, excellent decor and very comfortable with a view of the pool from the balcony. Breakfast buffet is not included and far too pricy so we catered for ourselves with supplies from Auchan,it's a 20 min walk but easy to reach on foot. Hotel Colorado restaurant is a a carte and very good value as well as excellent local dishes. If you like spas and pools then it is an excellent place to stay, can also get shuttle bus to the city takes 20 mins, otherwise local bus and metro takes an hour. A draw back is the hotel is in a quiet part of North Buda with only a few restaurants near but there are some nice looking places to try in Auchan, it's a bit of a walk, so so an apartment is a boon. Also really need a taxi from an to airport, it is possible to use public transport if you are determined and have less luggage.
Pleasantly surprised; nice sized apartments, great kitchen with fridge/freezer and oven for making your own food. Beds slightly on the firm side but sill good enough for a couple of nights stay.
'Backpackers' bar a couple of stops down; not too noisy at night and offered good value drinks
Staff more than willing to help out; arranging things to do, transport etc
Housekeeping every other day but new towels delivered quickly if requested.
Free access to pool and gym an added bonus
Dvd player in apartment (even had a few English dvds - don't know if they had just been left before)
