If you forgot your swimsuit and are looking for an alternative to the baths of Budapest to pamper yourself, A-list provides an excellent opportunity to do so! There are locations on both the Buda and Pest sides, and my friend and I visited the Buda location. Upon entering, we were greeted with a friendly reception and warm cups of coffee as they prepared for our services. We first had our eyebrows shaped by a skilled and professional beautician. Afterwords, we had fish pedicures, in which little "doctor fish" nibbled away the dead skin on our feet. The sensation was similar to submerging one's feet in a tank of soda water, with a rather tickling sensation. The beautiful decor, relaxing music, and lovely tea only enhanced the experience. You are placed in the window for the fish pedicure, allowing pedestrians to view the interesting spectacle of individuals with their feet in tanks of fish, drawing quite a few funny reactions! After half an hour, my feet were in the best shape they have been in for quite some time. I felt completely pampered after these two services and my interactions with all of the staff. Even with such exquisite services, the prices were entirely affordable for a student traversing Europe on a strict budget. I would highly recommend visiting the salon to any Budapest tourist looking for an unforgettable experience of relaxation and indulgence!
