The Bath is friendly, modern and holds the classical old-style features at the same time. Great place to stop and relax for few hours. The thermal water is natural and pleasantly warm. When the weather is cold the rooftop pool is surrounded by water vapor, it looks mysterious with the awesome view of Budapest.

When we got to the place we found out the SPA area of the Baths were for men only that day (actually most of weekdays are for men only) so we couldn't get in. Also the prices were different from the ones written in the website.

Been going to Rudas since I moved to Hungary a few years back. Facilities are good but they need to do something about crowd control. Last few visits have been really below average because of the long waiting times before entering the premises. Also kind of distracting is the PDAing of some couples. Didn't mind that before but sometimes, it's... More

This was our 2nd visit to Rudas Baths, and I will definitely come back again if I'm ever back in Budapest! The first time we went during the night bathing hours, and bought access to the whole complex (swimming pool, "wellness" section and old thermal baths). However, the wellness section is basically just a collection of jacuzzis, nothing special (unless... More

I read many reviews on the baths in Budapest trying to decide which to go to and in the end I felt Rudas Baths was the best option. Yes it was a nice experience to try out the different baths at various temperatures, saunas etc and to generally relax from the sight seeing but I feel the whole "baths" experience... More

I have visited these baths on a number of occasions in the past. I have been going to the thermal baths here for a few years. They have specific days for men, women and mixed bathing. So make sure you check the website first if you intend visiting the thermal baths here, It is the most relaxing experience to float... More

Having visited almost all baths in Budapest I can say that Rudas is my favourite. It has a great location, fair prices, many kind of baths, pools and wellness facilities (e.g. saunas, salt cave, etc.) and the very unique panorama pool where you can enjoy a spectacular view on Budapest, its bridges and the banks of the Danube. Highly recommended... More

Visited here with a group of friends and was happy with the overall experience, would change a few minor things. Price is very reasonable for access to the entire spa Mixed changing rooms were slightly odd and we could not find towels and robes for love nor money even when we asked!! The main attraction is the rooftop heated pool... More

We went on a Saturday night as a group of 7. Night bathing is from 10pm-4am, cost was around ~4800 HUF for admission, extra charges if you need towels or a bathing suit (try and bring your own). The baths are pretty extensive. We really enjoyed the rooftop bath which had excellent views of the river and bridges (the venue... More

Thouroughly enjoyed our experience here (only disappointment, was not being able to experience the old section, as it was 'men only' maybe on a different day, women are permitted as it did state 'men only today') We purchased the 'wellness' package, we had the use of a mineral thermal bath, an iced bath (did not go in this one lol)...

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.
