Full description
Since its construction in 1918, the Gellért Spa has been the most prestigious of the thermal baths on the Buda side of the city. The spa is famous for its main hall with gallery and glass roof, built in art-nouveau style, and the sparkling bath and open-air pool with artificial waves.

Begin your full-day experience by skipping the line at the main entrance and making your way to a separate welcome desk, where a host will lead you to your own private changing cabin. From there, get ready to unwind and explore 13 indoor and outdoor thermal spring pools.

The thermal waters are cooled from their natural temperature of 170 degrees Fahrenheit (77 degrees Celsius) to varying temperatures and contain minerals such as magnesium and calcium – a treat for your joints!

Be sure to check out the steam rooms and saunas, too, taking a quick dip in the cold pool after you've had enough heat.

Treat yourself to a luxurious VIP massage, choosing from an aroma-therapeutic or a Swedish-style massage. Book the massage for yourself or as a couple.

The duration of the gentler Harmony Aroma Massage is 45 minutes and the more vigorous Swedish-style Royal Thermal Massage is 60 minutes. Couple massage treatments take place in the same massage room.

The setting is magnificent. On the other hand the ambient temperature at the edge of the large swimming pool is too low for my taste: bathrobe or towel essential. However, the temperature in the different baths conforms to that displayed. The massage is also very pleasant. In short an excellent half day.

I found this to be a very fun experience. I had never been to a Thermal Spa before and I had been very curious because I had heard so much about them. First of all, the building itself is beautiful. The architecture, the intricate paintings on the walls and ceiling- wow! It was a tad bit confusing to get around, though. I wish they had a bit more signs as to how to get around, we got w bit lost at one point! There are several inside baths at different temperatures (20°C, 28°C, 36°C, 38°C, 40°C, etc) plus a pool, as well as an outside pool and warmish thermal bath. There are freezing mini baths as well as steam room and saunas (both inside and out). There was a lot of variety and one has to option of booking (at an extra cost) massages, VIP massages or Thai massages as well as other treatments. The VIP massage my partner and I received was nice but I have had better. One thing that did surprise me was that you had to pay to rent a towel, bathing cap (if wanting to swim

Booked this package, showed up at the spa and they said they couldn’t take us and it was a mistake that we were able to book. They told us that they would work with GYG to give a full refund and we bought a spa pass. It took a few emails to convince Gtg to give us a refund.
