Super easy access by the tram line number 1. A lot of different pools to try out with different temperatures. The building is also very beautiful. Definitely worth a visit.

Be prepared for big summer crowds in pools. Cabins are changing rooms that lock! Out teen group had a blast.

We took a long bus ride to these baths and were so excited. Only to find out it was closed for tours that day and so you could only enter as a swimmer for a significant price. We just wanted to see the beautiful baths.

If you want a different kind of experience, go here. Although there is very little English spoken, it is less daunting than it seems. Get a locker. Rent towels - you will get a refund when you return them. The baths consist of multiple indoor...More

They may be very busy, but this Spa is definitely worth a visit if you're in Budapest. We went earlier in the day (11am) to try and beat the crowds and found it quite relaxing. It did start to get very busy from 1pm. It's...More

Morning so you can get a lounge chair and an umbrella. Use Get Your Guide app to purchase tickets if you go! It gets quite busy by 10 am so we bought our tickets ahead of time on the app
