Very mediocre bath, honestly expected much more from the famous baths in Budapest. But maybe I'm just spoiled by the baths we have around my hometown. Rudas is small, cramped and does not offer much attraction.

When there is a line to get in, the ladies working the front seem overwhelmed and are not very cordial to first-time visitors. I highly recommend reading all the signage (posted in English) so that you understanding the pricing for the various pools, rentals/deposits for a swimsuit if you don't have one, etc. All of the facilities are nice, whether...

I felt extra foreign navigating the whole bath ritual - but sure glad I took the plunge. I was told that only foreigners wear bathing suits - and wanting to feel more native I opted for the typical cotton loin cloth (with cheeks exposed) that are part of the fee. (As is a secure 'cabana', and towel, but no flip... More

In all the times I have been to Budapest, I hadn't been to any of the historic old Turkish baths in Buda so I was thrilled to visit the Womans Only day at the Rudas. It's a quick and lovely walk across the bridge to the baths from Pest, which is what my party did. We were excited to take... More

At first something general: The bath is didided into just two parts, even if the screen at the entrance does suggerate something else: the tradiotinal thermal bath and the wellness part (where you can book extra the swimming pool which is absolutely not necessary to do if you do not want to swim for a few lanes - a bathing...

Quite literally the best spa day i have ever had. Just one little tip, they give you a kind of bed sheet style towel and as a usual towel user, this felt pretty weird. Suggest taking your own towel and flips flops. Not the end of the world though because once your there you forget about everything and really do... More

They've got men only and women only days during the week and mixed sex days on weekends . I went for the old ottoman baths . Steam room and various pools with varying temperature . An apron is included . I'd recommend it !

This is an extraordinary place in Budapest with healing thermal baths, saunas, swimming pool and great wellness. On the top of that there is an amazing roof top bath with a view over the city. I would definitely go back there

Many people have told us the other spas were better but we thought that these were great!! There is lots to choose from in the spa, many saunas, steam rooms and pools. Rooftop pool was hot and lovely to sit in in the winter overlooking the Danube. Had a soap massage and scrub there as well, great value for money.... More

I have been to RUDAS more times than I can count as I was studying last summer there and during the day I could go Rudas on mens day and I felt like I stepped back in time. They don't allow photos so I don't have any to show. 男性のみの日は一番良いです。日本の温泉みたいんです。ブダペストに一番大好きな温泉になります。

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.
