Worst massage ever
Sep 2021 • Couples
I booked a refreshing massage but the experience was not good. The massage was with an old lady. She was very quick in her movements, which was stressful. On the back part, she focused mainly on a few places and I had a lot of pain the day after which lasted for a few daya. Overall, she did not seem to know what she was doing. Not recommended!

The thermal bads are relatively small but enough for an afternoon. There was quite a lot of noise in the indoor pools.

Local hungarian baths
Jan 2020
During the day we visited the city and around 6 pm we went to relax. Compared to the others, it is a small structure of Hungarian baths, frequented mainly by locals and few tourists. Good organization and great price.

Well worth a visit.
Aug 2020
The courtyard pool is warm and inviting. In a figure of eight shape, there are two parts; one has an outer circle which flows quickly and enables swimmers to float around unaided, the inner circle has a seat around the outside with Jacuzzi type blasters that switch on automatically and give an amazing massage. The other half of the pool has beds that have the same effect as well as bubble jets in the middle of the pool.

The thermal pools were absolutely fabulous. We used them all! Started off with the hot one, 40 degrees, then progressed to the 36 degree one, 32 degrees, back to the very hot one and a quick dip in the 24 degree pool, which was extremely cold in comparison. We spent about three hours here and totally enjoyed the experience.

As we had bought the Budapest Card we had free entry, just had to buy some sandals to wear about the place.
Further visits had to be paid for, but with a discount. There are changing rooms with lockers and small changing rooms that can be used, but you can also book a cabin, where presumably, you can leave all belongings.

There is a small cafe serving hot and cold drinks, including local beers, and snacks. Highly recommended.

Very enjoyable afternoon
Feb 2020
The Lukacs Thermal Bath is located within walking distance of the Margaret Bridge - admission was free, having purchased a Budapest 72hr Card. The day was a little cold to use the two normal swimming pools - but the thermal bath and warm pool, were fantastic - a great little lazy river and jacuzzi in the warm pool was the main highlights!

Well worth it
Feb 2020 • Friends
We spent a couple of hours here surrounded by locals. There are various pools at various temperatures and you go from one to the other. Hair needs to be tied up and a swimming hat is needed for the out door swimming pools. There is also a sauna and heat room.

Great afternoon
Feb 2020 • Couples
Great way to spend an afternoon, the Spa is a hidden gem the the locals use and the tourists have still to discover. It is most cost effective if you bring your own towel, flip flops, you also need bathing cap if you want a real warm outdoors swim, but that’s the save with the other more popular Spa’s.
Some of the staff don’t speak the greatest of English and the place could do with better signage.
The Spa was recommended by the people in the local wine bar and they were spot on. No overcrowding, friendly and half the price of the 3 more widely advertised options and with fewer hidden extras.

Authentic Hungarian baths and natural spring
Jan 2020 • Couples
We were recommended to visit this Spa over some others as it has the underground style baths that have the water from the natural springs (some don’t have these.) It is a fun thing to experience while in Budapest but quite different to the sort of ‘spa’ experience we are used to in the UK! It is very smelly because of the chemicals in the natural spring and it’s very basic (no instructions or maps anywhere just kind of grab a towel and work out where to go for yourself!) However we still enjoyed it - my advice is just relax and try and wander around to immerse yourself into the Hungarian culture!

Clean, friendly staff, bad massage
Jan 2020 • Couples
We were so excited to go to a spa that wasnt to touristic. And it was a fact. English was a small problem at he counter. As well a explaining us everything. What really was a shame is that we booked and payed for a foot massage and the masseur didnt want to give it. He said leg or back, so disappointing because the leg massage wasn't good either !

Don’t miss the rooftop sunbathing area!
Apr 2019 • Friends
Lukacs is a very traditional open thermal bath and lido
Only the locals know about the rooftop sunbathing area under the trees
Never too crowded
The massage is pricey but very good

A labyrinth without instructions
Jan 2020 • Couples
I found it really hard to find my way in this building. The staff at the entrance was not friendly, the signs to the thermal baths and the rest of the facilities were misleading. Some of them were also erased. There was no one to ask for directions or even inform you for the proper use of the facilities. The number of people using the thermal baths exceeded the stated one and there was no one to control it. Saunas were very nice though. And fortunately it was a clean place.
