Gellert Bath opened in 1918 offering medicinal water treatments using the same deep underground springs the Knights of St John used in the 12th century, and later on the Turks to feel the invigorating powers of the mineral rich waters.

Come and visit our favorite bath in Budapest besides Szechenyi Baths: Gellert Spa Bath is the true gem of the thermal baths where you can easily spend a day, explore the numerous pools, get luxury treatments without having to feel crowded by other tourists. Spa and elegance await you in the Art Nouveau building of the almost hundred year old Gellert Bath.

  1. Question – we have booked a couples massage at the spa but did not bring bathing suits on our travels. Is it acceptable to be naked during massage? If not, what is recommended?

    • Hello Debra,

      thank you for your email.

      General rule: Please wear your swimwear for your massage.

      If you prefer to be naked or covered in a swim wear can be a crucial aspect of a massage therapy. In Szechenyi Baths the massage therapies are always in a swim wear, but ladies can release the bikini strings if they wish. In general, we suggest talking to your masseuse in advance about your dressing preferences.


      I hope I could be of help.

  2. Dear Gellert spa & bath

    I have just booked and payed for a double visit to your bath the 7. oct with the royal thermal extra massage for 70 min. It is for 2 persons.

    I didn’t get a voucher but just the receipt for the payment.
    Will that be good for entering Gellert bath?

    • Dear Lars,

      thank you for your booking and your comment.
      We have already sent you an email informing you that the timetable of the October massages has not been finalized yet. We will send you the actual massage hours of your reservation approx. 2 weeks before your date of visit.
      Thank you for your patience.

      • Thank you.
        We are looking forward to visit your bath/spa.

        Can you please explain what ‘extra’ mean?

        • Dear Lars,
          the Royal Thermal Extra Massage is the therapeutic version of the Royal Thermal Massage.
          To enhance the healing and analgesic effects of the treatment, the masseuse applies a special balm – made of goat butter – to the painful parts of the body after the massage.

  3. Hello we have booked to come tomorrow and the money has gone out of our account but we never received tickets or confirmation via email. We have tried to contact the bath but incorrect number. Please get back to us urgently. Thank you.
