During my stay in Budapest I decided to try out thermal bath and I decided it will be Rudas Thermal Bath.

Why Rudas?

I get a lot of recommendations about this ones and I wanted to make sure on my own that they really have something special what I was listening about.


After a long and tiring day of traveling i knew what I needed, a day in a spa, to be pampered and to relax, not thinking about anything, just me, me, me…did I mention me? And the spa was wonderful, I felt so refreshed after it that I think I could have walked all around Budapest and still I wouldn’t feel tired at all.


Budapest has a fairly unique quality, being among the very few large cities in the world that is rich in thermal water – so it is also called the city of spas, and has been a well known balneological center since the 1930’s.

Visitors can choose from a wide range of local thermal springs, where many different treatments and wellness services are available. The Rudas Thermal Bath was established as early as the 16th century, during the time of the Turkish occupation. Its central part includes an octagonal pool covered by a 10 meter diameter dome. At the end of the 19th century, a therapeutic swimming facility and a sauna was added. The bath also has a complex physiotherapeutic section, as well as a drinking hall, offering drinking cures from three water springs: Hungária, Attila and Juventus. In the wellness department guests can enjoy the benefits of Juventus pool, immersion pool, rooftop pool and two hot water pools.



This hotel being exceptionally clean and having great service. And I really have no objections on the hotel it is amazing, I’m sure I will come back.

  • Service is great
  • Staff is one of the best I have ever met
  • Superb Location
  • Nice decor

    I did visit Budapest last summer (Hungary was my 30th country on my mission to visit 30 countries before my 30th birthday!) – but I didn’t manage to get to any thermal baths, though I have heard such great things about them. The Rudas looks beautiful – I’d love to visit if I am ever back in Budapest (which I am sure I will be, as it’s an awesome city!) x

    Thermal baths are a thing when in Budapest. It’s like a must. Your post reminded me of hammam spa bath I took in Granada, Spain. It was so awesome. Btw, that’s a great post with abundant pictures to have an idea about the place. Would looking forward to it when in Hungary.

      I agree with you that is an incredible building and it’s really beautiful, far from that a quite modern and clean.

      There is no better rest during your trip than to relax in thermal baths with an amazing view to a whole town.

      I recommend that to everyone it really fills up your soul and recovers your mind 😀
