Well, no splashing really just a couple of hours enjoying the 5 pools of water, steam and sauna rooms. We went at 09:00 so nice and quiet, as we left if was getting busier. Really really relaxing.

Visited today having never been to such a place and what a great experience. Lovely staff loads of lockers and cubicles. Every one uses the same locker room and the layout is initially strange. The pool was the least enjoyable due to having to wear...More

Of the baths we visited in Budapest (along with Gellert and Kiraly), Rudas had the best variety of bath units and wellness rooms (multiple saunas and steam rooms and a salt inhalation room). There are two parts of the spa: the original thermal baths and...More

An interesting experience. Paid for a visit to the thermal pool. Went on a mens only day and was given a wristband and a loin cloth (which covers only the front, leaving the butt exposed). Upon entry, a staff guided us to tap our wristband...More

This bathhouse gives a more personal thermal bath experience, with nice individual changing cabins and not overcrowded pools (the rooftop spa with city view is understandably the most populated). Relaxing in the original Turkish style bath house, the part built in 1550, really transports you...More

Wonderful experience. The staff is a bit annoying, only because we did not understand the rules. Once you understand they do things their way, things go great. The building is amazing. Go at your own speed. We only spent about an hour, but we enjoyed...More

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
