This is one of Budapest's most elegant and prestigious baths, featuring thermal spring water, indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, steam bath, an assortment of massage treatments and a private bath area for couples.

My experience, Explo description: 

The bath complex was built between 1912 and 1918 in Art Nouveau style. It was damaged in World War II, but rebuilt in the following years. References to healing waters in this location can be found from as early as the 13th century. The current bath complex and hotel was opened in 1918 and was expanded in 1927 and 1934 with artificial wave pool and with bubble bath.

Pools and facilities

The complex includes thermal baths, which are small pools containing water from Gellért Hill's mineral hot springs. The water contains calcium, magnesium, hydrocarbonate, alkalis, chloride, sulfate and fluoride. The interior of the thermal baths are decorated beautifully with Zsolnay mosaic tiles.
Gellért Spa is famous for its Art Nouveau main hall with a glass roof.

The spa also includes saunas and plunge pools (segregated by gender), an open-air swimming pool which can create artificial waves every 30 minutes and an effervescent swimming pool. There is also a Finnish sauna with cold pool and children's pool.

The one warm water swimming pool is possible to visit coed, but the male and female thermal sections (saunas and massage) are separate. Every Saturday and Sunday are family days, so all sections can be visited mixed.

Towels and swimsuits may be rented at the spa, please note that they only accept cash forints.

Massages: Hot lava stones (using hot stones and oil), Chocolate Dream (with antioxidant effects), Stress-away (Muscle-relaxing treatment especially for back and shoulder muscle. Helps your circulation based on swedish massage.), Harmony Aroma (aromatherapy)

The Private Bath:

The Private Bath service is a three hour service for couples or up to 4 people in the Ornamented Bath Hall of the spa. Guests can relax in warm spring water, enjoy a complimentary fruit tray and a bottle of chilled champagne and warm up in the sauna included in the Private Bath area.
