I had a great time relaxing here. But you should come a little prepared. Staff doesn't speak English, so they can't really help you. Personally I don't mind. Travelling should be a bit of an adventure and not everything on a journey should come prepared...More

Visited the main spas in Budapest and I have to say this was definitely my favourite I recommend the roof pool but be prepared that it will be more than a little crowded in the evening.

Don't waste your money coming here. The whole experience will leave you stressed, angry and you'll be annoyed you didn't go to Széchenyi or Gellért, both of which are far superior. Staff here are rude, unhelpful and have no interest in making your stay relaxing....More

We also visited the Széchenyi and Gellért baths previously, but Rudas turned out to be our favourite. Important things first - at Rudas there are restrictions on who can visit on what day. We went on a Saturday morning - only Saturday and Sunday are...More

I went to Rudas bath in the original thermal section (not the swimming pool or roof pool). The baths are well equipped with private cabins and friendly enough attendants. The baths were built by the Turks, and the architecture of the oldest section still bear...More

Stylish old Turkish bath with the amazing 16th century dome with the original bathing pools and saunas. Great experience for regular guests and first time "bathers". Not too expensive, not too touristy, quite and pleasant atmosphere, most locals come here for rejuvenation. My go-to place...More

The fairly small (72 feet) indoor swimming pool contains silky 84 degree thermal water. The average 10-15 swimmers presented to old folks like me a very pleasant swim. The staff is reasonably courteous and the facilities are updated. The locker room is shared by women...More

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

I don't believe you can buy tickets in advance. Myself and my husband paid around 34 euros I believe for the two of us to go everywhere in the Rudas baths.
