Germ infested bath house!
Oct 2021 • Couples
Enter at your own risk with the high chance of getting something and/or sick! The pools are extremely over crowded, floaties in the pools with who knows what they are? Saw several men with underwater cameras that I thought was really strange and concerning. The steamroom was so overcrowded i couldn't even enter. Standing only?! I was a visitor not a native and this was an excursion from my trip guide so I figured it would be a safe place to experience. 1 day after this, I got really sick. I'm typing this as I'm in bed still sick and its day 4! I have a severe head and chest infection. Fever, chronic coughing, headache, nose and throat burns and body aches. I retested for covid and its negative. I'm 99% sure this came from the germ infested bath house. I would not recommend attending there ever!

Relaxing!
Oct 2021 • Couples
I’ve never been anywhere like this before! It was great fun and what a relaxing way to spend a few hours in the afternoon. We got a private changing room and felt very safe that our belongings were taken care of.

Nice and Relaxing
Oct 2021
Especially enjoyed the thermal spa pool with +38C temperature. Very soft and relaxing water. The other facilities are not that great but ok still.

Very overrated, Bad Service
Oct 2021
Starting from the staff, we ordered cap for the hair, they charged us for slippers and they obliged us to take two caps so they don't refund money, The bathrooms was not clean, and the massage, was really the worst you can see that the one doing me the massage is not an expert. so if you want to go there, make sure that all you can get is spending sometime taking pictures on the outside pool and fake that you are satisfied.
For me I will never go there again!

Nice experience
Oct 2021 • Couples
Very relaxing 3 hours we spent there. A little bit uneasy to find exit to the outside pools, but nice when you get used to all the labyrinths. Nice experience

Great way to spend a cloudy morning.
Oct 2021
We spent most of the time in the outdoor pool which was great. But, when I first went to the locker room, none were available. I went ahead and got ready and one became available but I had to grab it quick. The locker room is too small and poorly ventilated. BRING YOUR OWN SLIPPERS!. They are too expensive, uncomfortable, and just too much. Something lighter and cheaper would be better. The whole process was a little confusing and it seemed to be the first time for everyone.

A Must Do
Oct 2021 • Couples
Great experience going through the various baths. Good fun and well worth going through them all.

Didn't realise we had to wear swimming caps in the outdoor swimming pool so had to go.all way back to the beginning to purchase a couple. It's a great place and a must do.

Good food available around outdoor swimming pools.

Bring your own towel and flip flops
Sep 2021 • Friends
old historic building. two main large outdoor soaking pools plus a lap pool in the middle. lots of smaller indoor pools plus saunas. Note that during Covid, there are no towels or flip flops to rent, but you can buy those for inflated prices at the gift shop. Bring your own towel and flip flops to save some money.

Ok visit, please be aware of your belonging, leave nothing unattended
Aug 2021 • Couples
Baths were good, 5900 huff for one adult. Staff were friendly and spoke better English than my Hungarian. I bought a towel, it was a good size, with Budapest baths written in blue, I went into the sauna where my lovely towel was stolen and replaced with a stinking wet towel, there is no honour among bathers so please be aware of your belongings.
Grand to visit while we were in Budapest, would I visit again?…probably not.

The thermal baths are huge and have a great history.
Aug 2021
The thermal baths are huge and have a great history. Three outdoor pools, one of which is a swimming pool, where a swimming cap is required. A large number of smaller indoor pools. Different water temperatures in different pools. Few people in the weekdays, so sunbeds available. Refreshments are available inside the complex but you can only pay cashless with a credit card or wristband. However, the whole area is very outdated and in dire need of renovation. When we first came to the baths, I felt like I was in a historical movie. Extremely old equipment, peeling plaster.
