The water is very warm, the baths are wonderfully set in beautiful sorroundings indoors and another one outdoors. The wave effect in the outdoors pool is exciting and really like the ocean. Massages Ok, but mine was late in starting and the masseuse did her job without friendliness - just another customer. It has become commercialised from being once rather... More

We read all the reviews across the options in Budapest. We decided on this one because it had a better range of indoor pools for April and the massage service was well rated. It turns out that this was a good choice. They have a range of pools and spas, from 26d outside to a 40d in side. It can... More

Although it's one the most famous therms, it was a bit disappointing. One of the 40 degree pools was under works and you can't swim in the main pool unless you have a swimming cap, which we didn't. Still, it was beautiful. You should also try the outdoor pool. Ticket costs 5300 HUF.

Beautiful surroundings with superb views of the city. Great stories to accompany the guided tour. Spa not quite as good as the Szechenyi but still worth a go. Felt strange being there. An other-worldliness pervades the Gellert, almost like a feeling of someone's eyes following you. Haunting. Or .......haunted? Mwooa......hahahaha......ha!

It was a great way to finish the day, arrived on Saturday at 17:00 pm more or less. The thermal baths and spa were much fun. The down points were prices (5500 fl), they close at 20:00, additional price for towel (1000 fl not including deposit). Locker area was completely open and the signs were confusing so men and women... More

Went to the Gellert spa today. Very calming and relaxing experience. Enjoyable. Can rent towel and robe or bring your own. Have lockers or small changing "cabins". Cabins can be for two but is cozy. Need a cap for indoor swimming pool, can buy. Overall a fun and relaxing cultural experience!

We went to 3 baths in Budapest, and Szechenyi is a bit better than Gellert. Gellert is very beautiful, but also quite small: There are only 5 warm pools (one of them is currently closed) and they get really full quickly. Definitely too many people to really enjoy it. The pools are very beautiful though, and definitely worth seeing. The... More

The baths are located just south of the citadel. There are beautiful indoor pools as well as an outdoor swimmining pool, hot pool and a finnish sauna. Gellert is among the more expensive baths in Budapest but it is still pretty cheap if you consider you can stay as long as you want.

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

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.
