Cabins vs lockers

Please note that you cannot buy a ticket without a locker or a cabin (except for the special  tour tickets, enabling visitors to have a short (15 minute) bath tour in Gellert Spa but not to enjoy the pools and other services). Gellert Spa Entry Tickets can be purchased with lockers or with cabins. But what is the difference between them?

Both lockers and cabins are designed to store your belongings while you are enjoying Gellert Spa with its indoor and outdoor pools. BUT:

  1. Lockers are smallish boxes with a lock on them (like the ones at train stations). The size of one is 120x30x65 cm (1200 x 300 x 650 mm).
  2. Cabins, on the other hand, are like changing rooms (but smaller ones) combined with storage facilities. In a cabin, changing privately AND storing your belongings in a safe place can happen at the same time and in the same place.

Cabins can accommodate one person, so if you are a couple, part of a small group or a family it might seem a bit tight, but you can take turns in getting changed.

Buying a Gellert Spa entry with a cabin is more expensive than tickets with simple lockers. Should you purchase the cheaper entries with lockers, you need to change in the women-only / men-only public areas / changing rooms, and then store your bags in the lockers. If you wish to be alone while changing or are a bit shy, cabins are perfect for you.

        We would like to go to the train station just after the bath.

        • Hello Justine,

          The size of the cabin can easily hold a standard suitcase or a backpacker style bigger backpack. Please make sure to close the door properly with your chip equipped wristband, which opens and closes the door of the cabin with a randomly generated unique code.

          The cabin comfortably accommodates one person, so if you are a couple it might seem a bit tight, but you can take turns in getting changed.

  3. Hi, please help me understand why towels are so expensive to rent at the baths? It costs me equivalent of HUF350 to rent a towel at my gym in London but HUF2000 at the spa?

    • Dear Michel,
      as the rental price is not cheap we recommend you bring your own towels to avoid the queues at the rental room and save money as well.
