Well worth a visit, we spent about 3 hours here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Worth remembering to take flip flops which I forgot and my feet were so cold walking around.

I was there in the winter and it was a great experience to jump into hot water when it's so cold outside and you can see the snow around.

Slightly dated, a little shabby, but all the better for it. A pure piece of history that works brilliantly today. Get up early, ideally midweek, and you'll have the place nearly to yourself. Two hours in the water you'll feel so fresh, £15 (own towels)...More

There are many baths in Budapest but for sure this one must be the most famous of them. It is nice to relax and enjoy the hot pools. Get in the whirpool and have fun just circling around!

We went when the temperature was 4 degree C at night and were just glad to be in the heated pool ;) I suppose with so many people in the pool, cleanliness will be compromised but that’s not what you seek when you visit the... More
