Was quite disappointed to be honest, especially after having been told that we 'must' visit one of the thermal spas in Budapest. We had a small possible discount for all-day admission though our hotel, and also through the discount vouchers from the tour bus, but decided we only wanted to spend a couple of hours in a spa and chose...

Gellert Spas were absolutely beautiful. The place is like a maze inside - walk around and discover all of the different spas. Most are heated to 36 degrees celcius but there is one heated to 40 - I could only stay in there for 5 minutes before I had to go back into the 26 degree but it was amazing.... More

We visited the Gellert Spa as it was on an easily accessible tram route from our hotel on the Buda side of the Danube! We started in the roof top hot pool and watched the sun go down and the moon rise in freezing temperatures, but we were lovely and warm in the pool. We then went back into the... More

I visited when it was -6 and was still impressed with heat and atmosphere of outdoor and indoor facilities. Plenty of different areas so make sure you investigate.

An absolute must for anyone visiting Budapest. I went with my partner in November and after a morning walking in the freezing cold the thermal baths were a welcome relief! It is quite pricey to visit however your ticket includes all day entrance and I believed it was well worth it even just to see the architecture! There are multiple... More

Getting your head around the system if you come here for the first time is a bit tricky. We wandered around for ages not knowing what to do. Staff were a bit thin on the ground and it was hard to find where to rent towels as the place is like a rabbit warren and signage not great. But if... More

The spa and baths certainly aren't perfect. It's a little dirty here, a little smelly there and its labyrinthine layout is definitely confusing: it took me more than 5 minutes before I found the actual baths. But all this added to the unique experience. There are a lot of different thermal baths with different temperatures. There's a sauna and a... More

One of a number of thermal spas located throughout Budapest, this is a great place to take in a local hangout and do some people watching, albeit in bathing suits. The hotel is gorgeous inside. The spa area can be a bit difficult to maneuver at first, but once you have the lay of the land, it gets much easier.... 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.
