Rudas baths is one of the smaller thermal baths in Budapest but still offers a unique and special experience with its historic octagonal shaped setting. If you go on men only day be prepared to have to wear a little cloth apron which exposes your buttocks! The temperature of the four corner pools vary from tepid to hot and the... More

A short walk of 10minutes along the river from the Buda side of Liberty Bridge. Take your own towel or hire there, take pool sandals or buy them there. There is a screen above the cash desks showing the 4 price options and what's included. Also, weekends are about 10-15% more expensive. Check the website for separate days for men,... More

I just wanted to make sure that the therapists who performed the "VIP" massage for us on last wednesday 1pm had proper qualifications? To be honest, it was the worst massage we ever received (and yes, we had many). First of all they played some dance music radio in the room instead of relaxing music (?!), when the massage started...

Could have spent whole day there, best part was braving the cold for the hot tub on the roof which had an epic view :) Excellent crew . Very easy to find your way through the whole bath . Very clean showers and lockers . The... More

We just had two days in Budapest so had no option than to try just one bath. Hence as per my walking tour guide we finalized to go for the Rudas Baths and trust me it was worth the visit. They have different temperature baths, much spacious. The best one is the rooftop but it's little small so u may... More

After sight seeing, sore feet and achy muscles we decided to indulge in the natural thermal springs of Rudas baths and we were not disappointed. Known to have healing qualities for Arthritis we looked around for the best place and chose Rudas, we were not disappointed! The original Turkish bath chambers were amazing with different sections and temperatures. The steam... More

This was the third spa for my wife and I, after the Szechenyi Spa and the Gellert Baths, and it was the one we enjoyed the most. It is smaller, and more intimate, but still less crowded than the more popular spas. We enjoyed the different temperature pools, and the range of saunas and cold and hot showers. They even... More

As it says in the title It was pretty crowded from around 12 a clock. The pool on the roof is nice and the view is also pretty good

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.
