NOT A GAY BATH
“This is not a gay bath. Being a local I attend the place for more than 25 years. Recently we unfortunately have to experience that gay tourists more frequently come here to have sex. To put this straight: it is not about anyone's sexual orientation, but Rudas is not a place to have sex. Would you wish to have a bath in my sperm? I certainly wouldn't. Please comply with this.“

Enjoy the experience but dont play there
“This is a beautiful old world place, I've been going for years and it was renovated and cleaned up maybe 6 years ago or so and is now modern and in good shape.
You should go for the experience, four pools in different temperatures and a big central pool which is a degree next to heaven. There are some saunas and very hot steam room, its hard to stay in the steam room for more than a few minutes. You put your belongings into a small cabin just big enough to change in. There are men's days and a woman's day the rest are co-ed.
In prior years there used to be a lot of subtle play here but do not take a chance if you want to engage with someone or get propositioned, there is frequent security and policing users of the facility who will call you out. I saw it happen.
Soak and steam there, play elsewhere.
That said there is a lot of eye candy, some really good looking patrons young as well. Also a lot of beefy bears.“
