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.

No waiting , got right in. A large place with multiple rooms and pools, you can spend as many hours as you want. Definitely relaxing.

Some reviews of dirty Gellert Spa worried me. I went at 10am and in the off-season, and it was really clean, those other people must have went much much later. I couldn't figure out the Cabin that come with this pass but the attendant was really good at helping me figure it out. Get a Cabin. As everyone says, bring a towel, sandals, and a swim cap. I thought it was really cool to use the hot and cold tubs...the sauna's are HOT. Only spent a few hours clue how people spend all day there. The pass includes shower gel too, which was nice because I went touring right after.

excellent value for money, superb location and experience, surprise after surprise as you make your way through the complex old fashioned hot baths, one of which was like sitting in the bath at home, a modern outside wave pool which was an excellent extra


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

We really enjoyed this experience
I am not a swimmer and it is not something I would normally do but it was a birthday present for my husband
The thermal spas were gorgeous - so warm and relaxing

This was excellent. I found it relaxing and the massage just took it to a new level. I have read some negative reviews about the Gellert Spa. I found the staff friendly and helpful and the place did not smell. I sometimes wonder what people expect or how THEY treat staff. I did not find it difficult to get around. It is quite large but there are notices everywhere. I would certainly go again.

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

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.
