This was an amazing place. Very deceiving in its size with multiple baths and the fabulous rooftop hot bath which allowed us to steam in the heat whilst the ground outside had snow and there were ice floes slipping down the Danube. One word of caution it is easy to get lost in this place and without some local language... More

Might have to wait in line but the wait is worth it if the baths are done correctly. Great pool on the roof with an incredible view of the city at night. Get the full pass if to explore the ancient grounds!

beautiful spa with views over Budapest. I recommend you visit the baths at night. the city looks beautiful. in the thermal park is quite a lot of people but it's worth it to wait for a place in the spa with a view. fantastic mosaic in the old part of term

While the new sauna world and rooftop jacuzzi are top-class installations, we ended up spending all of our time in the original Turkish bath, dating back to the 1500s. It's absolutely unique and amazing, but 1) if you're going with a different-sex partner, make sure to go on the weekend, as all other days are single-sex and 2) be open-minded,... More

Rudas baths has several pools of different temperatures to change between for the thermal bath experience. When you are done with that head to the roof at dusk for a hot tub with amazing views of the city as the lights turn-on one bridge at a time. Beautiful!

Go up to the roof, relax in the jacuzzi and enjoy the view of Budapest, the Danube and the sky. Then if you have energy go to the Turkish bath area. They also have pool. WOW

It's definitely worth going here to experience the thermal baths - just don't expect it to blow your socks off. A great experience, and next time we visit we'll try a different bathhouse just to see what the others are like, but recommend giving Rudas a go. Nice and relaxing and great views from the rooftop pool.

I must admit, although I read over and over again how the thermal baths were a Budapest "must," I actually had zero intentions of going to one! But, after a few days in Budapest I impulsively decided to visit the morning of my flight out of Budapest. It happened to be a Tuesday which was a ladies day, perfect for... 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.
