The palace-like edifice contains a huge thermal pool where people often play chess while immersed in chest-high, and very hot, water.

Very beautiful..however, it is a bit too crowded with kids and teenagers making too much noise. Make sure you get there early so you can find a lounge chair.

Lots of people... Maybe too much. We missed some manicure and pedicure. Hope those would be easier to book. This was our try to get A day at spa but we didnt get it.. If you just want to swim, this is perfect!

It is impressive that so much water is generated underground and brought to the surface. Very pretty scene but probably not much for a tourist unless your going to be there for a few days. It is worth seeing briefly and then moving on.

It is clean and tidy, we had a fantastic time get there early to get a lounger and avoid the lines, even if you have payed in advance

We picked a beautiful sunny day to visit the Szechenyi Baths. It was busy but not uncomfortably crowded. We each had our own "cabin" which is a changeroom/locker that is very secure. The building was very clean and quite nice. The pool area is well...More

Visiting Szechenyi Thermal Baths is definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Budapest. The baths are clean, traditional and a unique Budapest experience. The building itself, the architecture is stunning. We visited in July and as expected, it was very crowded, but nothing...More

Having just returned from an incredible few days in Budapest, 2 of which were spent at the beautiful baths, I am booking another trip here for early next year. Are the baths open in February, and if so are they still popular at this time of year? Thanks

All baths are open all the year round, during the coldest periods too, most of them are indoors. Just take good rubber-sole slippers to Széchenyi, where it could get icy on the outside surfaces (which are practically... More
