The area
Address
Neighborhood: Gellért 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.

Too many Instagrammers taking Photos right next to you
Oct 2021
I was there October 2021 on a busy and overcrowded Sunday and what annoyed me most (except for the UNBEARABLE noise in the pool areas) was the amount of people taking their phone inside and doing Instagram Photossessions. Not just a quick Snapshot to send home, but hours of shooting just right next where you try to relax. Women trying to take sexy Photos 40 cm away from you, while you try to relax with your girlfriend.
Definitely can't recommend for people who actually want to relax for 6000 Forint.

Excellence in service
Aug 2021
I visited the Rudas Bath three times during my stay and all three times I had an amazing experience. I did use the spa services and I had no opportunity to use the bath and I can only recommend this place for their professionalism and hospitality. Specially I would mention Dia, who attended me twice and she was excellent both times. This is a must place to visit if you want to relax or simply for recovery.

Don't go here on Saturday night! People spitting in the hot tub
Jul 2021
Don't go here on Saturday night! We went here during the daytime in 2017 and that was fine. But we visited on Saturday night in 2021. Don't bother. They let way too many people in, without decent supervision. A group of guys was literally spitting in the hot tub on the roof. They played loud music and it was overcrowded. Horrible experience all around. Maybe still good during the daytime or weekdays. But we definitely don't recommend you go here on Saturday night, unless you like bathing in an overcrowded hot tub with people's spit floating around.

Hungarian baths with a view
Jan 2020
During the day we visited the city and around 6 pm we went to relax. Hungarian bath facility not overly large, but satisfying. The view of the city from the swimming pool outside is beautiful. Good organization and great price.

Aggressive staff

I was in the Rudas bath yesterday. Never again. Rude service. Aggressive staff. Arrogant and xenophobic lifeguard. Never again!

First Visit
Oct 2019
I love a good relaxing sauna or bath, and this was my first visit to Budapest so the baths were a must. Great historic location, the central bath had a great atmosphere. Saunas were super hot, showers super cold. Multiple pool temperature options. Male only day, so you get a loincloth to cover the front, which you switch to the back in the sauna, though some went without, and a few took two to cover both sides. As soon as you get wet they are basically pointless anyways. People kept to themselves during my experience.

Excellent historical baths
Sep 2020 • Solo
Have visited these baths for many years now on male only days.

There used to be quite a lot of friendly gay activity in the showers and sauna but it seems to have stopped now. Although there still was a regular money boy (but he must be pushing 35-40 now🤔🤨) strutting around looking for customers to take downstairs to his cubicle for whatever. In saying about downstairs, there was a little observing going on down here.

On arrival If you enter the first area of cubicles walk straight through till you see stairs going down on your right, go down 2 levels and activate your wrist locker key in the lower level and keep your eyes open down there, can be interesting.

Aquatic Thermal Furdo Delight.
Aug 2020
We are absolutely spoilt, living in the Majestic, Historical - City of Budapest, Hungary, the number of Thermal Furdo's, that are available for us to visit and enjoy.
Rudas Furdo, is a delight to visit.
It's facilities for ALL, inclusive of children and those with disabilities, makes your visit joyous and relaxing.
It is a public facility, that is operated, in a displayed form, of total professionalism.
Staff are polite, obliging and courteous, present, for your safety and well being.
They are available, if required, to make your visit an unforgettable experience.
Cleanliness - is factorially noticeable, the attention to detail paid by staff.
This includes, in these testing and challenging times we ALL live, prior to entry, that ALL undergo a body temperature check, which is not of an invasive process.
We encourage ALL, when visiting our Home and Capital City of Budapest, Hungary and numerous other thermal facilities spread throughout Hungary, that you make time to visit them.
You will have a lifetime joyous ever lasting memorable experience.
Stay Well - ALL.
