A beautiful spa, by anyone's standards, with modern pools of different temperatures and an outdoor jacuzzi on the roof, but the highlight is the 16th century Turkish spa, with it's different temprature baths, steam room and (for the brave!) ice bucket. It is very popular, and we were battling the crowds on a Sunday afternoon. We were a mixed group,... More

I've visited some thermal baths before in South Africa and in northern Spain, but this was to be a different experience as we wanted to try out the bath on the sun terrace at night in minus temps. It did not disappoint. The views are gorgeous. There are hot pools, cold pools, jacuzzi, the large swimming pool, showers, etc. -... More

On the city's baths, this is a Turkish style. These pools are state of the art. The baths are easy walking distance from the town center. Little expensive.

We go to Gellert whenever in town but our first trip to Rudas was even better. They rotate days to specific gender which makes the atmosphere calmer and less distracting. Cozier, cleaner and better facilities. Cheaper than Gellert as well. You should experience both when in Budapest. Progressive baths and saunas (dry and wet) allow you to move from one... More

We wanted a traditional thermal baths and Rudas gave us best of both worlds. We went on a Tuesday so it was woman only in the thermal spa part but we went all inclusive to access the whole spa, really clean, lots of different options. Could have spent whole day there, best part was braving the cold for the hot... More

The baths have clean private dressing booths, a good range of temperatures, up to 42 celsius in a main ottoman styled central space and new section with windows to the street and the best - a roof top open air bath with view to the Danube ! We came before our flight home for the night bath on Saturday night.... More

I have been here three times over the years and it remains my favourite of the baths. My first time was over 15 years ago when it truly was confusing and a bit daunting, the thermal baths themselves have not changed but the entrance system and cubicles are now very simple (with guidance). We have not done the new 'wellness'... More

My friend and I went to the Baths after much hesitation because we had read so many different reviews that we were kind of confused about which one to pick, and the process for non-Hungarian speakers seemed quite confusing and daunting! Eventually we decided to brave it, and chose Rudas because it seemed to be the cleanest, got good reviews,... 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.
