We visited the spa and baths on a prebooked ticket which included a 50 minute double 'royal thermal' massage. The building is stunning and the baths were fairly clean and facilities good (though the whole place is a bit of a maze to navigate around!) Changing cabins recommended as these made things so much easier. Toilets and showers could have... More

I don't really know how to rate this. As a historic location with really beautiful architecture and decor it is a gem. But as a spa, it is not really what one would expect. The thermal pools are good, but nothing to write home about. And the dressing room part would really need some renovation. Also, the signage is not... More

Absolutely enjoyed a relaxing afternoon here. We booked a cabin which I would highly recommend. There is some refurbishment going on just now so it was as easy to get from area to area. The 40 degree pool was also closed. You can hire everything you need there so don't worry if you have forgotten anything. We were there on... More

The architecture of the building and the spas is beautiful and worth the visit. Then there are the pools of varying degree of heat. It is incredibly relaxing to be in the pools. There is also a wonderfuol swimming pool for those who want the exercise.

I guess is this one of those things you are " supposed " to do in Budapest. This review is simply about " the baths"..not the entire spa. Not a pleasant experience... you feel a " little dirty" after visit..overcrowded pools, strange odor. I must say however the hotel is beautiful and dining are by pool very nice. If you... More

We arrived on a Sunday morning to find a complete lack of organisation and very rude and unhelpful staff. One male staff member actually yelled at us for wandering in the wrong direction whilst trying to find the changing area!! The area for hiring towels and swimming caps was woefully undermanned with one young man trying to cope with the... More

We pre booked tickets so didn't have to wait in any lines. It wasn't very clear where you had to go to get to the cabins. We wandered around for a bit until one attendant started shouting at us. If you already have a bracelet/watch thing you apparently just walk up to a machine and find your cabin number by... More

The baths are clean and well preserved. There are swimming pools and Roman baths. Even if It was Easter, the place was not over crowded. Thai massage was awesome!!

Good experience and great architecture. When the weather does not allow you to be outside, it is worth to spend a couple of hours, but not more.

It was great to visit, beautiful building. But swimming there was not a quiet relaxing experience as it was crowded. We went there on a Wednesday afternoon. The swimming pools were packed with hundreds of people and as all were talking and there was echo in the rooms it was very noisy. The massage we tried was good. Also the... More

Staying in Gellert Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the landscape with its imposing 19th century construction, a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being distracted by the phenomenal view over the Danube and the eight bridges crossing. Once on Gellért Hill however, one mustn’t miss the famous Gellért Baths. Budapest is renown for its thermal waters and its baths, and the Gellért Baths are housed in an impressive art nouveau structure. Its interior design, with its many mosaics, recalls the preceding relationships the city has had with healing springs and saunas, traditionally used within this neighborhood since the Ottoman Empire.
