This was a great relaxing day in clean thermal pools. We had a "cabin" which was a locked changing room that had a lock controlled by an electronic plastic watch we had and to wear. Pools were clearly marked as to heated temperatures, showers were .. Read more »


Please don't bother going to the baths near hear square. This is less touristy and not so crowded. We got the cabin and full day pass. The indoor pools were just so relaxing and the steam room excellent. Highly recommended. We got there at 1030AM and.. Read more »


My husband is mobility impaired and was able to navigate the facility with little assistance. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the baths were kept very clean. We only went to the pool with the lowest temperature but enjoyed ourselves. Defi.. Read more »


Enjoyed all the pools very much. Swim cap required for the main indoor bath but otherwise great. Wave pool was a novel addition! No re-entry though so do be aware.


Nice bath, has good amenities. Though a bit pricey for what it offers, considering there are other similar baths across Budapest that are cheaper but it is worth going at least once. Often it is very crowded as it is a popular tourist attraction. But.. Read more »

My second time in gellért and without a doubt my happy place in Budapest. Relaxing, beautiful tiled rooms indoors. Blue colour schemes which put your mind at ease. Around 20£ entry. Such a novelty to sit in the warm outdoor pool at 9.30am when you sh.. Read more »


Simply the most beautiful bath in all of Budapest. Felt like i was transported back centuries. So pretty and elegant. Make sure to get in the 36° pool first before you get in the 40° one..


Very nice inside. The girl who served us was very helpful but after the swim, thermal baths & massage...which came to 43000 huf which is around £110. We was the told we'd have to rent towels at a cost of nearly £15 each....not impressed


Astonishingly majestic! The Gellértbath is by far my favorite thermal bath in Budapest! The Romanesque architecture in combination with Youth-style elements, makes this bath unique. The outside and inside areas offer a wide range of bathing activi.. Read more »
