Came here with my partner and first impressions was good. The architecture was beautiful and there were plenty of pools... very easy to get lost. The outdoor thermal pools are the best pools there... nice and warm. However, I found the atmosphere quite dire unfortunately....More

We were very excited to visit these baths, and thought by coming on a cold, rainy day we would miss the crowds. WRONG. It was jam-packed with people and was a very confusing maze to navigate. The facilities (locker rooms and restrooms) were old and...More

The outdoor baths are really beautiful and relaxing but the indoor there is a bad smell. But it’s a thing you should do when you’re in Budapest

Myself and my partner visited here despite being sceptical after reading a few negative reviews- and we are very glad we ignored these! We were going to buy tickets online before we went, however it was so much easier (and cheaper) to get them there!...More

Great place! Lots of fun. However if you take Bolt or Taxify to get there, they have no wifi so you either have to take public transportation back, which is not real easy. I paid $6.15 to get there. Took random taxi back to hotel...More
