Gellert Hotel and Baths
It was during the Ottoman Empire that Budapest’s astonishing 120 thermal springs were first used to supply the city’s baths. The highly sulphuric waters are believed to be therapeutic and healing. The various bath houses still perform a central spiritual role for the people of Budapest to this day.
The Gellert hotel and Baths is the finest of the great bath houses in the city. The main swimming pool is arguably the finest example of Neo-Classical architecture in Hungary and must be experienced by anyone visiting the city. Stain glassed windows, opulent marble colonnades, intricate mosaics and galleried balconies make up this stunning bath house - truly splendid surroundings in which to relax and rejuvenate in the mystically healing thermal waters.
In the summer the Hotel opens its outdoor pool which includes sun terraces and even the world’s first artificial wave machine! Round your trip off with a relaxed brunch in the first floor terrace café which enjoys magnificent views over the Danube and across the city. The Gellert Hotel and Baths are located in the heart of Budapest. Holiday apartments enable visitors to explore the city with greater flexibility and offer a cheaper, self-catering option for a city break.
