The Salt Cave in Gellert Spa is more like a Salt Chamber (Sokamra) with cubicles.
Salt therapy for inhalation is an extra medicinal service, not part of the regular bath services. This means that you will need to pay some additional fee on top of the bath ticket. Once you take seat in your cubicle in the Salt Chamber, you can start the 15 min salt therapy. The chamber is filled with salty extract for inhalation to relieve asthma and other lung problems. The treatment is fast, more medicinal than spa, unlike typical salt therapies, which include a longer stay in a Salt Cave.
Opening Hours in Salt Chamber

How do I book the salt spa? Can i do to before we arrive…

Several years ago I visited the medicinal part of the spa. I suffer from nasal congestion and a nurse mixed up some potion and I was placed on an inhaler for a few minutes. The treatment worked for several years. Can you tell me if this is still offered? What is the proper procedure to enter that part of the spa?
we have contacted you via email.
I often suffer from an upper respiratory infection and was diagnosed with allergy (still waiting for a result). I was wondering if inhaling could help me or if it could work as prevention?
thank you, we will soon contact you via email.
Good morning. I am experiencing a temporary loss of sense of smell as a result of a cold with blocked nose. I am planning to visit the spa tomorrow. Is the inhaler treatment that John refers to above available and how can I book it?
Good morning Gregor,
Thank you for your question.
There is a salt chamber in Gellert Spa which can be helpful for your condition, however, unfortunately it is not available on weekends. It is available on weekdays and can be booked at the cashier, on the spot.
What might be still good for you is the steam cabin and/or sauna.
We hope the above helps. Have a great time in Budapest!
I visited the salt chamber yesterday and it was great. I will visit again today but I suffer from bad nasal congestion and was wondering if I could try the inhaler as John mentioned on previous post? Would it be possible to try today?
Thank you for your comment.
The salt chamber is open from Monday through Friday so today you can use it.
We wish you a wonderful time at Gellert Spa and quick recovery as well!
Thank you but I was referring back to the inhaler that John was speaking about in a previous post?
We will contact you via email.
Have a great day.
