We had initially planned to go to the much larger Gellert baths but made the right choice in the end. Our hotel staff had recommended this smaller venue as it was less crowded, with far fewer children. The spa had a wide variety of pools,...More

Enjoyed a relaxing few hours at these baths. The ancient thermal baths and steam rooms in the basement are full of atmosphere and the rooftop pool is fun especially when it’s nearly zero degrees outside. Staff were helpful and friendly despite other reviews and the...More

My husband and I went in September and it was not too busy. Our favorite section was the outdoor pool on the roof. Great views of Budapest and the river!

We went there for both the thermal baths part and the wellness part, it was really good, the thermal part gives the old feel as it's darks and misty in the room, and the wellness gives the luxury vibes, especially with the panorama pool overlooking...More

I liked the location itself but you have to cross a lot of electronic barriers which makes the spa experience a pain. At every corner you see staff observing the guests. You feel like back in a totalitarian regime. Nobody is helping you though, they’re...More

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

I think that the steam and thermal pool areas are men only on Mondays; but the swimming pool is open for all (wearing bathing costumes)

Women can swim in the pool and go to the "wellness center" - which is pools of various temperatures every day. Women can only go into the historic old center (which is the best) on Tuesdays (women only) and weekends (coed).
