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.

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.

This small spa is often the spa of choice for Hungarians rather than foreign visitors. I came with friends who wanted wellness treatments, I am not interested in spas myself, and they were impressed with the pools and the quality of the massages they received. I had a day pass so that I could wait for them in the cafe but I was not impressed that I needed to pay for a day pass when all I wanted was to sit and read in the downstairs cafe. But this is fairly normal here. Only the Rudas baths have a cafe at the entrance. Food was basically sandwiches but they were fresh and fairly appetising. Very helpful at the information desk, less so at the ticketing booths as not many staff speak any language other than Hungarian. This can be a problem when trying to negotiate different wellness treatments. It is a very nice spa, though, and a visit can easily be combined with a walk up the Rozsadomb to the Gul Baba tomb, then on to Obuda (a few stops on the tram) to the Sushi Sei restaurant. Or to explore Obuda itself .

Yes, the outward appearance is impressive. But grandiose Hapsburg wedding-cake architecture belies an interior that has seen far better days, probably around the time of Franz-Joseph! Broken-down is the most generous overview term. Poor internal directions found me spending most of my hour looking for a seemingly mythical sauna. All I came on was a feeble steam room and a dreadful old harridan checking vaccination status. A far pleasanter experience is to be had at the Rudas baths.

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.

This is a good place to feel the intimate atmosphere of thermal bathing in Budapest. While Gellért and Széchenyi are more well-known and much larger, this bath offers a quieter historic setting in a more off-the-beaten path part of the City.

There are multiple pools in the dimly lit interior and a great outdoor leisure pool in a sunny enclosed yellow courtyard. The interior is a typical maze of corridors and rooms but it’s not too difficult to understand. There is another lap pool outside that requires bathing caps that we did not use. Our family really enjoyed this bathing experience and look forward to returning sometime.

Very poor, we visited two adult's and one child. The first greeting was a grumpy lady at reception. We finally found our way to the poorly sign posted pools only to be whistled at by the pool attendant as we attempted to get on the pool. Apparently you have a swimming cap to use the two large pools. He couldn’t be bothered to pop over and explain the rules. We found another pool where people didn’t have caps but it was over crowded and the whole experience meant we went back to the locker room and got changed. It’s not worth the hassle even if it is free with the Budapest card. Try one of the other baths, there are plenty.

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.

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 !
