What Shall I Take With Me When Visiting Gellert Spa?

The most important things to take with you to Gellert Spa are the following:

  • money for the bath entry (and maybe for the catering if you get hungry or thirsty)
    or
  • your printed confirmation email of your online purchased bath entry and/or massage treatment (if any)

We also suggest to take with you (if you can and want):

  • Swimwear – Being a coed bath, in Gellert Spa you have to wear some kind of swimwear all the time and in all part of the Spa. However you can rent a swimsuit in Gellert Spa, if you wish, please check Swimwear rental in Gellert Spa (link)
  • Towels – Towels can be rented in Gellert Spa (link), but we suggest bringing your own towel, as the deposit for the towels are set quite high, the waiting time can be long, and you need to keep an eye on your rented towel to get back the hefty deposit fee.
  • Soap, shampoo – There are showers but no complimentary soap or shampoo dispensers
  • Hairdryer – You can use the public standard hairdryers by the showers, but in case your hair needs a special dryer, you can bring your own too (2 point European style plugs)
  • Swimming cap – you can also rent in the Spa, please see Rental Prices in Gellert Spa (link)
  • Food and drink – You can bring your own drink and food to the Spa, but we also have a buffet with cold snacks and drinks.
  • Other personal items – comb or haidryer, suntan lotion, body lotion, etc.

What we do not recommend you to bring:

  • Jewellery – We suggest leaving behind your jewels
  • Other valuables, like cameras, wrist watches, etc.
  • Cigarettes – Please note, smoking is prohibited in Gellert Spa (inside and outside, by the pools too)

In case you do need to carry a valuable item you can rent a safety box in the baths.

  1. Hello,

    I’m coming to Budapest this week (from the UK) and am interested in coming to the Gellert Spa on my first day. As my accommodation check in time is later, I was wondering if it would be possible to bring my little suitcase with me? I was going to book a cabin, and complete the booking today but i just thought i would check I could be bring my case with me.

    Regards,

    Jamey

    • Dear Jamey,
      We suggest the tickets with cabins for you.
      The cabin is like a tiny room, or cubicle, which can store a standard check-in suitcase easily.
      The cabin size is approx. that of a dressing room in a clothes shop, so you can leave there the 20 kg suitcase as well ( if it is a regular size) along with your jackets etc.
      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), we assume it is too small for your bags.
      The lockers are also opened and closed by your wristband.
      Hope we can welcome you at Gellert Spa!
