One of my favourite thermal bath in Budapest. But I have to mention that changing their strategy about the sauna world was a big mistake in my opinion (previously you had to buy separate ticket, now it is included). Last time I was there it...More

Not so crowded but some tourists find their way here since it free when you have the BudapestCard (72h). It is not far away from the Margaret bridge. More locals than in Gellert. In all; a better bath experience than expected.

No, I think you have to get a locker and change into swim wear.

Yes you can hire towels - but at a £5 each its better to take your own. The hatch that you hire them from is also difficult to find in the maze that is Lucas Baths. Ask for help, or you'll be there all day trying to find... More

Lukacs Baths (5 Replies)
Off again to Budapest - I knew I couldn't stay away for too long! I was looking at the Lukacs website and they mention that they now have a Turkish hammam. Has anyone used this? Is it as good as the hammams in Turkey? Any idea of price? Thanks for any replies. Kate

I would like to add that Lukacs is not an original Turkish bath (although its spring has been used since Roman Times). This newly refurbished building was built in the late 19th century. If you are looking for a real, authentic Turkish bath, I recommend Rudas. It was built more than 500 years ago, during the Turkish occupation. Recently renovated as well. Note that Tuesdays are the women only days in Rudas. Weekends are mixed. Other days are men only days. Lukacs is mixed all day.
