The basics

Unwind with a massage or body scrub, which you can book in advance or at check-in. Treatments usually incorporate local elements such as Hungarian wine and mountain herbs.

Great experience
We arrived around 12.30 pm at the bistro and were asked if we preferred to eat before or after visiting the spa, we decided after although the time was flexible come back to eat. We were then provided with wristbands which scanned you into the spa and which you could use to lock any of the lockers in the changing room. You can use any of the pools in the wellness part, there are plenty of indoor ones but we went straight to the NMG-5QXL-82PO-7N7S where there are sunbeds, a bar and pool. We stayed until approximately 4 pm got changed back to our clothes and headed to the restaurant. The food was lovely, 3 courses, choice of each given. You get a glass of lemonade and a glass of wine. Overall a great experience. Take your own towel and flip flops or the like and if you prefer to eat whilst still enjoying the spa, a light dressing gown or beach cover type thing to wear in the restaurant. If you arrive without a towel and whatnot you might get caught out and have to pay to buy or hire. I look at it as going to the swimming baths here, you would turn up with what you need, dont expect things to be provided. The drinks prices at the pool bar were very reasonable and card only accepted

The restaurant was reserved for a private party and initially the manager was abrupt. He did accommodate us, the food was great-- looked a bit bland, but was NOT! We did have the tour in reverse order due to the restaurant issue, but myself and daughter tried ALL the areas available in the bathouse which was a fantastic experience. Taxi service challenging on weekend. Fav spot for locals.

Rudas Bistro Premium Brunch
The food and view in the restaurant is amazing and the service was excellent. Three very large courses ( you can skip a meal after eating here) and a wide selection to choose from. On arrival you are given your entrance ticket to the spa next door which includes the main pool, thermal bath area, sauna world and a locker. Don’t forget to bring your own towel as renting one is a rip-off. We also added on massages when we arrived at the spa. The spa itself is spacious and relaxing, the massages were magnificent if you enjoy deep tissue massages. We were in the spa as it became dark ( it stays open to 10pm), and it was beautiful to see the lights of the city twinkling from the thermal pools and poolside loungers. A very good value trip. I definitely recommend it.

Budapest’s Baths

Public bathing is a centuries-old tradition in Budapest thanks to its natural thermal springs, and the city has dozens of spring-fed bathhouses to choose from for a quick soak or indulgent spa day. Széchenyi Thermal Bath is the largest in Europe, with a sprawling outdoor pool and many soaking tubs inside an ornate neo-baroque bathhouse. Gellert Baths is a local favorite for its gorgeous Art Nouveau design, while Lukács Baths are known for its extensive menu of medicinal treatments.
