I have gone to Budapest a few times over the years and my favorite spa is Rudas. Its authentic turkish style with modern touches. The sulfurous waters sooth and there are like five smaller pools of different temperatures and one main central pool with a very comfortable temperature. The steam room is intense and feels good and has a great scent. Adjacent you have suspended buckets with cold water to cool down and a few cool pool choices.
The place has alternating days of the week for men and women and weekends were co-ed. Lots of age ranges and a good looking crowd of people to make the experience eve better.
Definitely better than the Gellert and less pricey.
Only complaints are that you gotta bring a towel and or rent one I guess. The cleanliness was acceptable but not pristine. Waters are constantly exchanging with clean water from the thermal spring though. Last, there were hungarians there, not just tourists.
