We spent a wonderful day here in temperatures of minus 6! It sounds crazy to be outside in a swimsuit in these temperatures but it's fantastic. Outdoor pools were definitely the highlight. We booked online first and showed our ticket on our phone. It was seamless and helpful staff showed us where to go and how to operate the lockers.... More

We stayed about a week in Budapest and a friend recommended us to take a day off at the baths. It was pretty crowded, meaning we sat shoulder to shoulder in most of the baths. The exhilarating part that made me feel as though it took away all the pain of traveling and walking was dunking myself in 20*C water.... More

I paid for my ticket and booked a changing cabin for privacy. It took me a long time to find someone who could explain the process of using the cabin to me. I asked several staff members and two outright walked away from me without attempting to find someone who would be able to help. Once I got inside and... More

Spent an amazing hours here on a Saturday night. Booked the beer spa in advance which is 45 mins in a wooden tub filled with the water from the spring, topped with hops, malt & barley. You are served a little plate of bread to snack on and a beer tap sits right next to you so you can enjoy... More

So much fun and so relaxing. You should definitely go for a massage. Bigger cabins and more showers as well as blowdryers could be better. You can rent a towel or a rob but do take your slippers with you.

I would recommend coming here as it was really beautiful and right beside the tram station. When booking, book a locker to keep your valuables save.

We took a stroll on Andrassy Ut (Champs-Elysees of Budapest) and ended up at the Baths. We got in easily with very little waiting and rented a changing cabin. We should have rented a towel at that time but we didn't. The line to get and/or return towels was long and we decided to drip-dry. Bring your own towel or... More

I went to these baths when I visited Budapest in November it was a great experience and something that I highly recommend the atmosphere is great, I would recommend doing this early on in the day as when we went at midday it was very very crowded busy.

Nice place to spend an hour, tops two. Unfortunately for me (active person a bit boring), but very good for relaxing. Bit old-fashioned - can't buy water inside and pay with card :/

Absolutely must check out the baths. And make sure to check out all the indoor baths, saunas and steam rooms too. A few people didn't seem to realise there was more inside. The minty smelling steam room was my favourite. Buy tickets from your hostel in advance so you can skip the queue.
