I do not recommend this place to anyone who would like quality gel nails and also do not go for this if it’s your last option before a special day. I asked for a wedding mani/pedicure. Pedicure was ok since I only asked for French nails. The manicure was terrible, the gel extremely thick, uncomfortable, made my hands look huge - not to mention it took 3 people to draw 6 leaves on 2 nails. Since it was done the day before my wedding, I had no option but to have to wear the terrible nails I have got from here. Please do yourself a favor and don’t ask for “complicated” stuff or find a better place. Gel nail polish they can probably handle, nothing more.
Also they charged double for a minimal haircut I had asked for my little daughter because the hair “designer” had made literally 2 cuts on my 8month old above each ear. Really rude staff and treatment. Ridiculous. Quality+service≠prices. Will not return.

I had the worst manicure experience in my life for THIS price!! The “top master” couldn’t even do the basic beige top straight. and i am not taking about the manicure part itself. Just watch the video. 12500 hug for this is a total waste of money! Wouldn’t recommend ever!

I went today for manicure first time after long time. Receptionist really kind and with good English skills. The employee that assisted me knew only the basics, so no talk for an hour. I was charged abive the price in the site. Booking a signature manicure, I was expected better treatment. I had booked in advance the next appointment but i will reconsider.

The worst hair cut ever seen when I brought my teenage daughter to make a nice style. not professional at all...I was choked while sitting and observing the way she was cutting..but I kept my mouth and didn't want to interrupt till the end..and won't make my daughter sad. That was big mistake as we arrived home she find plenty of mistakes. Sorry..but we paid 11300 ft for what???

Hi. I just home from my 5 day vacation in Budapest. I was alone and asian. I just walked in because it was early around 10am in the morning. They've just open for the day. I Ask them of they entertain walk-in customer and they said "yes" so i Ask for the manicure and pedicure with spa, and they said i need an appointment. so they just did manicure with spa. The lady who attended to me was nice but before she was finish with my hands and nails, she Ask me to move to the waiting area because she have a customer. I find it so rude and racist. And i was asking for their other services they did not entertained me. So i paid and left. For 6,600 huf was not Even worth it. They don't entertain much if a person is from Asia.

Be careful of two price lists for this establishment..... one for Budapest side and one for the pest side salon despite emailing and trying to confirm appointment for 4 people we took time and money to go to the spa on pest side... To be told we saw budapest pricing on the web we are wrong and get knotted type story and quite rude didn't want to phone manager or negotiate a deal so end result a bitter taste and no business for them.... Off we went to Thai massage place..... Wonderful!!!!!

We would like to thank you for your feedback, and are very sorry for what happened. Sorry for the inconvenience. We want to tell the Pest salon prices are higher because this store is located in the heart of Budapest with higher rents and the Buda salon belongs in another district. That is why we have different prices.We really apologize for you.

When you visit the website and you see the owners of this place you understand very clearly what I mean. Everything looks great and nice but it`s not. One of my friend was burglarize there, and when she recognized they were so rude that it was more shocking as the fact itself that her purse disappeard. When my friend tried to call the police they did not let her doing it as it will destroy the good reputation. Khm!
I experienced several time the famious gossip, as they are very gossipy. I was just listening how they talk about guests who just left, so I imagined how they talk about me when I leave....Be careful what you say and to who.
Plus it`s sooooo overpriced recently! They just opened their second salon and probably they try to get more money this way, as the other salon usually empty. Well, there are better salons in town, where the price-value ratio also more then better, and the atmosphere is really good!

It is an awful feeling when you open your wallet and you realize that you have fewer notes than before. You are in denial and hope it did not happen to you. But it did. I got robbed at A-List spa during the massage. This is the Spa which has the fish pedicure in the store window. During the massage and the shower after were the only times my purse was not in my control. After the massage, before getting into the shower, I thought it was odd that the door to the room did not lock. Basically, 3 notes of 20000 forints(approx $220) were taken by the rather short statured male massuese. I sreered away from the seedy looking massage parlors on Vati Utca and went to this one which had good reviews. To the lovely US Air Force wives who were there getting thier mani-pedi, please
don't go back.

The fish were weird, but worth the experience. We splurged and got the exclusive fish pedicure that included nail care, and the girls were very meticulous with their work. Friendly staff. I will be coming back for even more affordable services during my ten day stay in Budapest!!!
