  1. Hello

    I would like to book «Gellert Spa Ticket and Cabin » or «Gellert Spa Ticket and Locker ». What is the difference between Cabin and Locker ? Is there a locker in the cabin in order to store our clothes and personal belongings ?
    Moreover, we are 2 adults and 2 children (15 and 11 years old). Is the Gellert Spa authorized for the children ? Is it the same entry fee for adults and children ?
    Is the Gellert Spa crowded in August ? Especially in the evening (17 :00 pm) ? Is there a long wait to buy tickets on the spot ?
    Thanks in advance for your answer,
    Best regards,

    C. Hubert

    • Hello Hubert,
      The cabin size is approx. that of a dressing room in a clothes shop, so you can change there and store your belongings.
      The door of the cabin has a unique chip code lock, which opens and closes with a special waterproof bracelet: in fact, with the chip incorporated in the wristband bath entry provided at the bath. Please make sure that your door is locked with the silicon wristband before leaving the cabin. As you are wearing the band all the times, it is quite secure if you make sure that the door is not left open.
      The size of the locker is 120x30x65 cm (1200 x 300 x 650 mm), and you can use the public changing rooms to get changed.
      The lockers are also opened and closed by your wristband.
      Unfortunately, there is no different pricing for children. As the thermal waters are not recommended for younger children, please read our FAQ’s about children at Gellert Spa.
      The summer months are usually very busy at the baths, so we suggest the online bookings, so you can skip the main queue at the cashiers and check in at our HelpDesk.
      You can also buy your tickets on the spot upon arrival at the cashiers.
      Enjoy your holiday in Budapest!

  2. Hello,

    I’d like to know if we could come without booking? or will it be full very quickly?

    • Dear Melanie,
      you can buy your tickets on the spot at the cashiers too. Online tickets are fast track entries, so you do not need to queue at the cashiers.
      Should you like to book a massage we would recommend to book it in advance online, as massage hours are limited, and the timetable of the massages fills up very quickly, and it is not very likely that you can book a massage for the same day on the spot.

  3. Hello,
    I’v just bought tickets via Paypal but i haven’t received my tickets nor I haven’t received a confirmation mail (except from paypal informing me that the payment have been made).
    Could you tell me what is the next step ?

    Thank you ?

    • Dear Julien, in the meantime you have received the tickets, so all I have to say is enjoy your visit at Gellert Spa!

    We have a reservation for tomorrow and only received a Paypal receipt yesterday after booking but not the tickets. Please we are going at mid-day so if you could send me the tickets early im the morning will be all right

    • Dear Montserrat,

      I would like to confirm that we have received your booking and the auto confirmation has been sent to your given email address, but we keep getting an automatic message that you are out of the office until the August 25th.

      We have already re-sent the confirmation from our backup email address too. Please check your spam folder too.

      Could you please let us know if you have received it this time?

      Thank you for your kind cooperation.
      Enjoy your visit at Gellert spa!

  5. Hello,

    As other customers, I have just bought tickets via Paypal (reservation for Tuesday 15th of August) but I haven’t received my tickets.
    I have only received a Paypal receipt just after booking, but there is no date confirmation, so it is not a confirmation booking nor a fast track ticket.
    There is nothing in my spam folder ….
    So what’s wrong with your online bookings ?
    Please could you send me the tickets quickly ?

  6. Hello, how would I go about booking a red wine bath in a private room? I couldn’t see any options for that when I went to book.

    • Hello Sarah,
      unfortunately, the red wine bath is not bookable on our website.
      We have contacted you via email.
      Have a nice stay in Budapest!
