The Danubius Hotel Gellért is an iconic Budapest landmark, opened in 1918 and has hosted celebrities, politicians, and other influential European figured during its lifetime. It is housed in a striking Art Deco building on the banks of the Danube, and is home to the famous Gellért Baths.
There is a sense of faded glory to the hotel – the interiors have not been maintained as well as they should have, and the decor and amenities in the rooms can be bare-bones. However, the rooms are all comfortable and clean, and the hotel is efficiently run by a friendly team of staff.
The Gellért Baths are well-known for their grandiose elegance, and they definitely do not disappoint. Colorful mosaics, elegant domes, and an absolutely stunning central swimming pool all combine to make this hotel’s spa worth the visit. Hotel guests get 30% off admission price for the Baths.
The gay-friendly hotel is located on the Buda side, next to the Citadella and to a bridge crossing over to Pest. RUDA Thermal Baths, a traditional Budapest hot springs popular with gay men, is a 10-minute walk from the hotel, as is Why Not Cafe & Bar, the starting point to many gay Budapest nights. Danubius is the only most booked gay-friendly hotel on the Buda side of the river.
