Brilliant experience. Was very bizarre walking about in 10 degree weather in a bathing suit but being completely warm and comfortable in the 28 degree pool outside. Lots of varying temperatures in pools both inside and out so there is something for everyone! The reception staff were fab however the same couldn't be said for the staff in the locker... More

Great baths .... worth a visit. Great variety of pools in different temperatures. However the best is the beer tubs.... self serve beer, what a treat.

Beautiful building and good range of pools, saunas etc. However, very disorganised and needs an urgent restoration. Waited 20min (without a queue) to rent towels, some unfriendly staff not motivated to help. But if you're in Budapest on holiday it's definitely worth going to these baths regardless of the service because they're pretty and it's an experience.

Szechenyi Baths are a great afternoon or morning out, you could be there all day but it might get a bit boring near the end unless you had a massage or some extra. Although there are many nice things to do in the area so it isn't a problem. The pools are lovely and the area is nice and clean.... More

Let me begin by saying I visited Széchenyi 17 years ago and spas being such a historical part of Budapest this was a must do when taking my spouse to the Budapest I fell in love with in year 2000. The disappointment is that in the past 17 years the only thing that has changed here is the admission price.... More

It's a big, rambling collection of pools, saunas and a major Hungarian meeting place albeit with many tourists thrown in. If you don't expect the rather cloying five star hotel sort of spa service but want to experience this, then here are some tips: 1.Avoid the packages - they bump the price from about 15 euro to 45-100 euro for...

I bought the Viator bath + cruise tour and I think it was a great value. The baths can be a bit intimidating given that is such a local thing to do but it is worth it. Theres plenty of options of pools and saunas so although it might always be crowded theres enough space to enjoy it. The staff... More

Took my partner here for his 60th and it was such a great way to spend a birthday. Went to the beer spa first which was great but the ticket for that allowed us all day access to all the pools plus a cabin (recommended - I'd also recommend hiring robes and towels online ready to collect if you're travelling...

The place is a very nice architectural building but it in need of some renovation as there are lots of cracks appearing and shoddy paintwork. When you're in the baths it is quite pleasant. Inside get very loud and echoey so not very relaxing. Getting changed is a shambles. Nobody knows what they are doing as there is no clear... More
