Racz Baths in Budapest

Kiraly Bath is a five star hotel and spa bath right at the foot of the Castle Hill, near Elisabeth bridge and close to further Turkish Baths in Budapest like Rudas Bath or Kiraly Bath.

Racz Bath has a beautifully restored octagonal  Turkish bath, and several smaller and bigger thermal baths (including private baths for 1 and 2). The architecture of the building is a contemporary mix of the historical Turkish motifs (the dome of the bath), the romantic extensions of the 19th century (designed by Miklos Ybl, the architect of the Hungarian Opera House in Budapest), contemporary components (even including a range of little white ‘desert igloos’ resembling the planet Tatooine).

Entrance Fees at Racz Bath Budapest

Bath ticket prices at Racz Bath will be approximately 7-8000 HUF (source: index.hu), almost double of the currently most expensive luxury baths in Budapest: Gellert Baths and Szechenyi Baths.

Hello Kurt, no, Racz Bath (Racz Furdo Budapest) has still not opened its gates, although there are no more legal obstacles for the bath and the accompanying 5 star hotel to open.
There is are several Turkish baths in Budapest, however, e.g. the recently opened Veli Bej (former Csaszar Bath) is often praised (open during its trial period).

Hello there,
Ill visiting Budapest this year between the 30th of december and the 3 of januari 2014 and I am wondering if the Racz Bath is allready open?
Best regards

Hello Bernard, unfortunately Racz Bath in Budapest has still not opened its gates for guests. There are random news about its opening in 2014 but the news have been predicting an opening year for every year in the last few years, so the best is to check if the thermal bath and luxury hotel has been officially opened or not.
