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.

Gellert Spa is famous for its lovely warm spring water pools, its architecture, its landscape, and also for its spa treatments, and pampering massage therapies at reasonable prices.

  1. Hi , are the external pools open this weekend?

    • Dear Olga,
      no, I’m afraid the outdoor pools won’t be open until the weather allows (probably until May). Thank you for your understanding.

  2. Scheduled a 60 min massage at 5:30pm. wont be able to arrive to the spa until 4:30pm that day. see that we can use the thermal pools before and after our massage, between 9am and 6pm. however, will not be finished with the massage until 6:30pm. see that the thermal pools are open until 8pm. can we use the thermal pools after our massage from between 6:30pm until 8pm?

    Also, are we able to lock the cabins while we are having our massage?

    • Hello Leslie,

      yes, of course, you can use the polls until the spa closes.

      The smart wristband you receive upon entering the thermal bath serves to use and lock the locker and the changing cubicle (cabin). Please note that there is a charge for the loss of a Smart WristBand (aka the Proxy watch).

      Have a great time in Gellert Spa Budapest.

    • I see in some of the reviews that some days are men and women only. Is this true as we did not see this on your website when booking? We are coming today (Wednesday 27th)

      • Dear Gary,
        I would like to confirm that Gellert Spa is absolutely co-ed since 2013.
        This means that there are no men-only or women-only days or areas of the Spa. The whole area of the Baths is mixed, every day, all day. Thank you for your understanding.

  3. Hello
    I’m staying in Budapest 01.-05.04. and I wanted to know if I need to prebook the entrance ticket or buy it online, or is there any chance to buy the ticket the day I decide to visit your Spa?

  4. Hi, I just booked a Double Harmony Massage 45m & 2 GS Ticket & 2 Cabins for this next Friday (5th of April) and wanted to ask a few questions:

    – The time is at 18.00h and I wanted to know if this is the entry time and massage or how it is organised.
    – Besides the swimming suit, do we need to bring towels and slippers?
    – For how long we can be in the spa? What time it closes?
    – I would like to have confirmation email as I have not received yet.
    – What are the cabins exactly?

    Thank you very much and sorry for so many questions 🙂

    Looking forward to be there!
    Kind regards,

    Marti Garcia

    • Dear Marti,
      you can arrive anytime after 9 am and stay until 8 pm. We have just sent you the updated massage hours, please have a look in your spam folder too.
      Yes, please bring your towels and slippers. The cabin is like a tiny room where you can get changed and store your belongings. The cabin size is approx. that of a dressing room in a clothes shop and the door 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. I hope I could help.

    Will be visiting the Gellert spa this weekend.
    Can you give me an indication of the cost for the flip flops?
    Is it okay to bring your own towel?

    • Hello Doug,
      Flipflops can be bought on the spot for HUF 3,000.
      Yes, you can bring your own towel, if you wish.

  6. I am arriving on 7/4/19. One of our party is wary of spas, are there places that he can relax and have a drink/food? What is your quietest midweek day? Can I hire towels?


    • Dear Maureen,
      no problem, there are a lot of quieter places in the Spa, and also a restaurant to have something to drink or eat. Monday-Thursday are usually less busy in the morning hours. Yes, towels can be rented on the spot.
