My friend and i wanted to go to a spa, since we didn't know where to go, we used GPS to find one nearby and we came across this place. The massage was amazing and my masseur Angela was amazing too. She knew what she was doing, i was very relaxed afterward. I can warmly recommend this place if you are looking for a good spa. They have sauna and jacuzzi as well if you want to use it after your massage, we used it. Beside that they had tea and fruit table that we enjoyed afterward. My friend was also satisfied with her masseur. If i ever go back to Budapest i will for sure go back to this spa.

The service was impressive. The tea room has plentiful supply and selection of teas, water, fresh fruit and other snacks. The spa provides 3 types of sauna, including an infra-sauna and the very very hot Finn sauna. We booked in for a couples 90-minute ginger and plum Swedish massage treatment. The massage was very good though a couple of moments of giggling between the masseuses detracted from the moment. They were otherwise very friendly and attentive. You don't need to bring anything except from a bathing suit. They provide towels, bathrobes and slippers and much else.

The changing room facilities could be improved to make the experience perfect. It was surprising not to find a swimsuit dryer and a better hairdryer. Changing facilities seemed a bit run down compared to the rest of the facilities. A member of staff kept leaving the doors to the changing rooms open, sacrificing privacy. It was even left open on one occasion whilst I was getting changed.

My girlfriend and I visited Magnolia Day Spa as part of our long-weekend getaway in Budapest. We decided to treat ourself to a proper couples treatment with a 20 minute bubble bath, and then a 60 minute massage afterwards. From the moment you enter the reception where you are greeted by a smiling and welcoming young lady (who speaks fluent English), and asks you what kind of drink you'd like in the bath with your loved one, you experience a sense of luxury, romantic ambiance, peaceful atmosphere and a sense that this spa can make you forget the stressful world outside. We were not wrong! Everything with this spa is outstanding.

The changing rooms are impeccably decorated, the tea-room has dimmed lighting, and comfortable sofas and chairs with coffee tables placed along the walls, and with a "buffet" in the middle with an endless supply of tea, water, fruits, crackers, and biscuits, all included in the price for the spa treatment.

The therapists greeted us in the tea room, and then showed us to the spa-room where our bubble bath had been prepared with candle lights and our drinks placed on the edge. After that they left the room for the 20 minutes. Regarding the actual massage, all I can say is that it was wonderful! The therapists were fantastic, and we felt like new people with softer skin, relaxed muscles and a sense of blissfulness afterwards.

A nice bonus was that after the spa treatment we could use the facilities of the spa for 3 additional hours. This included a hot tub, Finnish sauna, Bio sauna, Infrared sauna and the tea room with the buffet.

Overall, we got the feeling that this was an exclusive day spa with few guests. Therefor, even though there were other guests there, we felt taken good care of by the staff, but also like we almost had an entire spa to ourself.

We will definitely be back!

We went today for a couples massage, with high hopes after reading all the wonderful reviews…
From the moment we walked in there it was kinda off.. the woman who greeted us seemed rather uninterested and was definitely saving her smiles and hospitality for someone else. She took us to the changing rooms, where the smell of mould filled our noses. It looked somewhat clean but run down and in desperate need for upgrades..
I can’t imagine why people would want to spend 3 hours there 🙈
Jacuzzi was dirty and I really wished I didn’t go in.. there was a rim of oily dirt that looked almost fossilised and had the same aroma as everything else mould!
Massage ladies were nice, you could feel that they are good girls but inexperienced and very poor language skills, I was not asked a single thing and when I asked for a stronger hands, she said yes of course and just continued petting me.
My partner was asked and got a little elbow action but overall his massage was weak too.
We really didn’t feel like we got our monies worth..
As I am reminiscing about it all I’m not even sure it’s worth 2 stars 😬

Dear Sandra, Thank you for taking your time to write your opinion about your recent stay in our Spa. Every feedback is important to us, especially the one which reveal a certain problem. We are really sorry that we couldn't meet your expectations. Our intention is always to give the highest quality service for our guest's full satisfaction and improve our services continuously based on their feedbacks. All our therapists are highly skilled specialists, receiving continuous training. All treatments are performed based on their specific protocol which might prescribe special massage techniques, stronger or more relaxing movements, or using unique tools, like bamboo sticks, lava stone. Of course, guests can always ask for changing intensity during their treatments. Before or after their treatments our guests can relax in the Spa & Sauna area with a Jacuzzi, Kneipp basin, Finnish sauna, Infra sauna and Bio sauna. We continuously request our guests to take a shower before entering the jacuzzi, so no oil can go into the water. The jacuzzi also has a cleaning system, that hourly cleans the whole water through pipe and filter, and our team check the quality of water on a regular basis throughout a day. We are really sorry that you did not like our shower area, so far there was no complaint for the quality and appearance, however our purpose is to provide the highest quality service, therefore we will definitely consider your feedback. We do hope you will give us another chance to change your impression and make your next visit perfect in our Spa. Best regards, Magnolia Team

I'm flappergastet. I have had massages all over the world. But this is the best. I had a back, shoulder, neck and face treatment (around 70 euro including the spa and all). I was so great that I went back for more. The surroundings are also high class.

Myself and my husband came here for the couples massage and bath, we had pre booked and I would recommend to do this as it all went very smoothly for us. The staff were very welcoming and gave us English paperwork to read and fill in for allergies and medical conditions. We were then asked to choose the aromatherapy scents we wanted to have in our bath, there was a good choice. The massage rooms and changing room area where located downstairs. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. We were provided with slippers, towel, a bathrobe and a free locker. There was a relaxation area with sofas, quiet music and relaxing scents. We were given the choice of water, coffee, tea or wine to have during our bath. I have rheumatoid arthritis which affects my hands, I explained this to my masseuse and she kindly avoided the areas which are too sore to massage. I like gentle massages and it was perfect for me. My husband likes a heavier massage and he said his massage was very good. We were given 3 hours to spend in the saunas and relaxation areas, and we could help ourselves to water, speciality teas and snacks. We paid approximately £30 each and we felt like this is good value for money. If you enjoy massages and being pampered then I recommend coming here.

I've never had a massage/spa experience, outside of Asia (namely Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, India even). I love my body rubs, but I was somewhat skeptical about Magnolia. Are they really as good as the reviews say they are?

And oh my goodness! - I had the best time there! It was a seamless experience from start to finish - The changing room was kept clean, felt luxurious and was well stocked with hand towels, hairdryer, combs, make-up remover, cotton pads, comb etc. The shower area was well-maintained and kept clean too. After changing, you wait in a nice "waiting area" where you relax for sometime. They have cookies, pretzels, fruits, water (still and sparkling) and tea for you to enjoy before your masseur ushers you into another room where you will begin your massage.

My husband and I booked a 45mins massage and had requested for female massuers only - However, they only had a male and a female masseur at that time and my husband, who has never been massaged by a guy (he finds it a little odd), ended up having one of the best massages of his life! The massuers had great technique, were firm in their pressure and we wished we had been able to book a longer session! (They were very full, so reservations are a must!)

After the massage, we adjorn into their 3 different steam rooms/sauna before ending off with a shower. If you like to take a dip in their pool, pack your swimsuit too!

I have been very tired in the last weeks as I sat a lot at the computer. I decided to go to Magnolia and choose a full body massage. As soon as I entered the spa, I found myself in a wonderful, peaceful world. At the reception I got an honest, sweet smile and all the necessary information how to use the spa. I changed my clothes, got own slipper, bathrobe and towel. First I went to the relaxation area and had a delicious tea. I calmed down after a minute. I felt as I am totally far away from the busy weekdays on a quiet island. Nice music, fresh flowers, nice decorations, candle lits everywhere. But the total renewal happened to me during my full body massage as I totally got expert hands. After it I entered the sauna world, where I could really focus on my own and arrange my thoughts. It was not crowded and very clean, I could even smell the wood in the sauna. Magnolia was a unique experience that I will definitely repeat.

We booked the couples 20mins bath and massage and we were most impressed. You are treated like royalty from the minute you arrive.they provide everything except your swimwear. Free drinks/fruit and snacks greet you as you step.into a relaxing room filled with lovely aromotherapy smells.you are left alone to have the romantic bath for 2. We had norbie and susannah for our massages and they were the best swedish massages we have ever had.we were then left.to chill.in the jacuzzi and sauna. It was romantic and relaxed. If you visit budapest we highly recommend visiting here.

My boyfriend booked a couples session including a bath and 45 minute massage and out whole experience was fantastic. The receptionist was lovely, she asked you to choose a bath flavour and type of massage - aromatic or Swedish. There is a tea room with lovely fruit teas, fruit and other snacks. The massage and bath were fantastic and came with a glass of wine and then we had a chance to enjoy the Jacuzzi and the saunas. A lovely relaxing afternoon, we would definitely come back!
