What You Can Expect

Private Entrance to Gellert Spa in Budapest with Optional Massage

Gellert Spa

Constructed in 1918 with a distinct art nouveau aesthetic, Gellert Spa is located on the Buda side of the Danube River, where mineral hot springs from within Gellert Hill feed the spa. Budapest is a city known for its bath culture, and Gellert Spa draws locals and visitors alike with its ornate mosaic walls, stained-glass windows and impressive glass roof in the main hall.
Begin your full-day experience by skipping the line at the main entrance and making your way to a separate welcome desk, where a host will lead you to your own private changing cabin. From there, get ready to unwind and explore 13 indoor and outdoor thermal spring pools.
The thermal waters are cooled from their natural high heat of 170 degrees Fahrenheit (77 degrees Celsius) to varying temperatures and contain minerals such as magnesium and calcium, a treat for your joints. Be sure to check out the steam rooms and saunas, too, taking a quick dip in the cold pool after you've had enough heat. The Roman-style pool and wave pool also await you.
There’s no need to keep your eye on the time, as the ticket is valid for full-day use. When you’re ready to rinse off, enjoy a shower with a Gellert Spa gift of shampoo and shower gel, included in this package. If you choose to upgrade, continue the relaxation with a 20-minute aromatherapy massage or a private 50 minutes Harmony Relax Massage in one of the VIP rooms.

This was a wonderful trip to the spa. The couples massage was very good. We had a beautifully sunny day at the pool and the hot springs were relaxing. I recommend you do this spa for a less crowded crowded experience than the spa in the park. The building is beautiful. Have lunch at the Gellert as the food is good.

I really enjoyed this spa, and actually have returned to it a second time on my own. Although you need to bring everything with you towel, swim cap, knowing ahead of time makes all the difference in not having to rent everything!

The private cabin is definitely recommended, and the massage was worth every HUF! A great spa, and easy to get to.

Amazing place to relax and unwind! Go straight to the thermal pools located near the steam rooms. It's non-chlorinated and is definitely the highlight of the spa! Bring your hotel towels as you will have to rent your towels for 1000 HUF each!
You can spend anywhere from 2 hours to a whole day inside! There are icy cold pools and tubs , sauna, steam. It's all mixed so make sure to dress appropriately! Take a day ticket with cabin facility, which gives your own changing room! The showers are separate for men and women although it's open shower!

Would recommend to visit this palatial spa on your last day at Budapest during the afternoon and then head over to Gellert hill and Citadel to get sprawling night views of this beautiful city. You also have the option of heading over to Buda Castle and the fisherman's bastion roughly around 10 mins by taxi or 25 mins by walk. Skip the Finucular as it's pricey 1200 HUF/ person and the whole ride is just 3 or 4 mins. Take the bus instead.

Worth every Forint! Just the thing we needed the day after our long flight from the US. We spent several hours in the hot baths, had lunch at the upstairs café, and the massage was first rate! Good value!

This was excellent. I opted to pay 15 to upgrade from the VIP massage to a 70-minute-long Royal Thermal Massage. It was so good that I may have to return to Budapest for a 3rd time just to have this experience again. The Baths are great but for me this visit was all about the 'treatment'.

Well worth every penny!!! We did a 30 minute massage and then spent the rest od the day going from pool to pool!!! We lucked out, there was a concert going on in the main hall so that's where we stayed till it was time for our massages. my only recommendation ...which I knew about..make sure you bring a swimming/ bathing cap, other wise you cannot go in the swimming pool swim lap. They were very nice but strick about this!! Great experience for my 89 yr old mother law!!!! A total blast!!
