The hotel will be open until 1 December. The hotel is a protected monument, and it is famous for its Art Nouveau style. The iconic building of Budapest was built in 1918.
The hotel will be renovated and turned into a five-star luxury accommodation by Indotek Group. The company made a deal with Danubius back in 2019 about buying the real estate. Indotek Group then said that they wanted to fully reconstruct the hotel building, writes portfolio.hu.
Despite the renovations, the owner wants to keep the old look of the hotel’s exterior. Despite this, the property will change in great ways, becoming a luxurious accommodation.
The original agreement stated that Danubius Hotels would operate Gellért Hotel in the upcoming years, during the reconstruction and planning stages, until the authorisation process is completed. These stages have come to an end.
The hotel will be closed, while the spa can stay open until March 2022.
Booking rooms for a date after December 1 is not possible. Guests who have booked an accommodation will be hosted in other buildings that are the property of Danubius Hotels. The spa will not be closed like the hotel. According to spabook.net, the latter is the property of Budapest Hévizei és Gyógyfürdői Zrt., a municipal company managing the baths of Budapest.
Various attractions await the public before the building is closed. Many monuments can also be visited close to the hotel.
The hotel with its 103-year-old past will host retro dinners, walks in the building, and light painting. These programs would definitely be worth a visit.
The hotel has many close tourist spots as well. Gellért Söröző & Brasserie welcomes guests interested in gastronomy. In the summer of 2021, they welcomed visitors to a beer festival called Serfőző Biergarten. At the event, besides beer, dishes made with beer and other amazing food was prepared, writes spabook.net.
