Nice spa, great swimming is great. Swimming pools in the building are small. Good price for entry and food.

Szechenyi Baths are one of the best I have been to. There are several pools, each maintained at a slightly different temperature than the other. The pools have built in points where water comes out at a high pressure which helps massage your body. Infact...More

We visited here on a Tuesday afternoon- it was busy but not crowded. I think we had a much better experience than people visiting at peak times. It was clean everywhere and no bad smells that other people have described. We were able to enjoy...More

We spent the whole day in the spa and left feeling so refreshed. We started the day with a 45 min aroma massage which was incredible. It was so peaceful and a great all over body massage. We then went into the outdoor pools which...More

We paid around £34 for both of us and was very impressed with how much you get for the money. Baths are open until late so you could effectively spend hours here and there loads of different pools, steam rooms and saunas. My husband decided...More

Other than the blue lagoon in Iceland this is the best thermal spa I've been to. So many different pools to relax in.

If you are staying at a hotel, you can just bring one of their towels with you. The lockers would fit a backpack but would highly recommend hiring a cabin to store your things and get changed in. There were heaps of people... More

Szechenyi Baths and Pool... a few questions... (7 Replies)
We are planning on visiting Szechenyi Baths and Pool during our upcoming visit to Budapest. I was thinking of doing this on our last day. We have an evening flight and will have our luggage which will only be 1 piece of hand luggage each.. Just wondering are the lockers big enough to hold a small case. Also I would love to take some pictures and was also wondering will it be safe to put my camera back in the locker when finished.

I am curious what others think...I have heard tales of stuff that went missing from lockers at Szechenyi and other baths, including a couple of first-person accounts. From the descriptions, I could not rulomensomeone picking the lock (or having a master key) but I also could not rule out the possibility that the visitor had not properly locked the door. Personally I would not take anything of immediate or urgent value, like a passport, into a public locker like that. But, again, I wonder what...More

We've only been to the Szechenyi Baths but had a reat time. We spend about an hour inside going from pool to pool, but after going outside we stayed the rest of the afternoon trying as many of the pools and areaas as we could because it was so pleasant. We would go again but we will probably the Gellert baths, too, on our next trip. Pk
