The whole place was dirty - paint hanging off the walls, a funny smell throughout and bits floating in the large pool. When entering, there’s barely any signposts so it’s unclear where the men and women’s changing rooms are. There are more lockers upstairs, which...More

When visiting in Budapest, make sure you have local Forint. Generally euros are not widely accepted, if accepted you get lousy rates. Ensure you change at a valid money changer, as bigger shopping districts is safest but be mindful they extract a sales commission. To...More

We visited during the day and found it to be a little overrated. Biggest turn off was that there was no music!!

So first up it is June and unseasonably warm. Much warmer than we expected. We went to the baths on a guided tour and enjoyed 90 minutes exploring. As we stayed on in Budapest for 3 days and the tourist thing was getting a bit...More

My boyfriend and I visited Szechenyi Baths on our first day in Budapest and loved them! We paid the equivalent of around £15 each for entry and a lockable changing room which was definitely worth it and you have a private space to get changed...More

Very busy, not the most hygienic place (definitely wear flip flops) but had a good few hours here. I would definitely recommend getting a cabin and bringing your own towels. No need to pre-book there weren’t any queues for tickets to get inside.

However 2~3 hours are enough, come late when there are no lines. Buying your tickets online ahead will save you the lines if any. Also, bring your own towels as all you het there is an empty locker

There’s a small bar to the side of the outdoor hot bath where you can buy drinks (including alcoholic) and snacks.
