    The place is in desperate need of an uplift. It still smacks of Soviet-era decor. The toilet in our room was one of the oddest contraptions I've ever encountered. The staff is a bit cold on first meeting but they got warmer as they got to see us iteratively. Maybe that's a cultural thing. The room was a bit shabby. A stained bedspread. Missing lamp on one side of the bed. Just little things here and there that require attention. All that said, the spa alone was worth it. 😊

    If you are looking for modern facility, this will not be the one. It is a historical building of 101 yrs old and they keep it like this, to attract customers that are looking for this kind of experience.Baths attached to it are very nice, breakfast was delicious and plentiful, staff is very friendly and fluent in English.

    Fabulous architectural gem, wold's greatest swimming pool facility. Hotel a bit antiquated, needs renovation. Wonderful helpful staff, from the manager to the maids. Breakfast is unsurpassed. Overall, a great experience to stay there

    I’ve stayed in many older hotels and recognize that everything may not be perfect. Nevertheless, for the price and the rating, I was very disappointed. Carpets were very dirty and furnishings were awful. The spa was convenient but still cost 14Euro per person. Staff were friendly and breakfast was decent. If price were reduced by 30-50% it would be reasonable.

    Extremely good location. Very kind and helpful staff. I got a room on the mountain side, which was very hot (no air conditioner but have a fan), and loud on the weekend. But asked for another room with AC and got one, no problem. ( all room facing the Danube have air conditioner according to the staff at the front ) The breakfast buffet is excellent. The waiters could be a little more friendlier in the other hand. Little smile wouldn't hurt. The bath next door is beautiful, the wave pool is so much fun. But I found it a little bit expensive. (It is not free for the hotel guest )The people in the information were rude and didn't care about you. They should spend a little less time on they phone and more time actually doing they work and helping you. You could find very good food in the Gellert sörözô, everyone there worked hard and they are very nice. But check your bill before paying, they might include the tip already! I would definitely stay here again,!

    Don't expect a good nights rest

    The beds are so old you feel the springs! Not comfortable in the least. No air conditioning! The spa is no longer owned by the hotel so now you pay extra for the use. Breakfast is excellent! Staff is wonderful!
