Gellert spa is very well organised - ticketing, facilities, helpfulness of staff is excellent. The cabins are very convenient for keeping personal belongings. The total experience of immersing in thermal baths of varying temperatures in halls with period decor is unique and enjoyable. A must...More

100+yr old spa showing its age. Swim hats required for indoor pools. If swimming outside not essential. bring your own towel if possible as the ones for hire are small and threadbare. Virtually no staff to be seen around the pools. Changing rooms minuscule and...More

I so much wanted to like these baths but I don't think they are more than just sufficient. Downstairs there is a cold (27 degree) pool and a warmer (33) one. In the open there is the famous pool with waves, which is funny but...More

I went to Gellert Spa with four friends and we enjoyed soaking in the hot baths, with short dips in cold water in between. It started raining while we were there so we weren't able to swim in cold water (the main pool is outdoors...More

So we went here after the main spa was chocker block! It was very nice, but like an absolute maze inside and hardly any signs helping us out. The wave pool was really cool though.

First off get to the spa early or queue for ages! Make the spa a day experience without trying to cram lots of things in. This spa is very authentic with beautiful artwork within the baths and plenty of places to enjoy sitting and relaxing...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

Not sure about the latest entry fee, but we just turned up on the day and stayed ages; and used all the pools. We booked a foot massage when we arrived and they gave us a time slot for later that afternoon.

You can do both, but they fill up fast. We went around 10:30am, but they didn't have any available treatments until 6pm. I think it would be better to try to book in advance.
