Have to disagree with the numerous lost and entitled tourists on this site. This is a great thermal baths and locals do go, but they have the sense to go in the morning. The architecture is stunning late art nouveau, it’s celebrating its centenary this...More

Yes, it’s pretty and it’s historic. However, it’s also expensive, noisy and crowded with tourists. Locals don’t go there. The layout is confusing with virtually no signage. The staff was uniformly rude and unhelpful. There are so many other baths in Budapest. I would never...More

Definitely go prepared, it helps to take your own footwear and towel. The baths themselves are beautiful but negotiating your way between them can be a bit confusing and the floors are quite slippery. Understandable given you've got a lot of wet feet going through...More

If you are expecting a modern spa you'll be disappointed. This is something totally different. I loved the art deco rooms and the different temperature baths. It has an air of faded grandeur that was rather pleasant. Great to go in summer with the wave...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
