Kiraly is small and 'local'. It has not been 'done up' but is very atmospheric and relatively quiet. I was there twice last week and it was bliss. Other than on my second visit there was a couple permanently on their phones!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone was on edge and they were obviously the only folk doing this. It was very intrusive, why come to relax in the baths and be on your phone!! When they left it was as if we all let out a sigh of relief and relaxed. At 3pm there were 11 of us floating/sitting around the edge of the pool and it was wonderful.
The staff just shrugged when I mentioned this on my way out.
I still love it there and hope that people respect the calm that we all wish.

The baths are just a short five minute walk from the Batthyany metro station and are situated on the left side of the road. Prices are reasonable and there is a generous discount for students and seniors. The baths have been in existence since 1500s and have a lot of character though they are perhaps not as clean as you might hope. You can hire a locker or a cubicle and the latter are only slightly more expensive and offer more privacy. There are several indoor pools and they all have a huge amount of character. It is a delight to soak there. Each pool is maintained at a specific temperature and whilst it gets busy there is ample room. For me personally, the nicest part was the outdoor wooden tub, again containing natural mineral water. The contrast of hot water and cold air was extremely invigorating. I totally enjoyed spending three hours here and would’ve loved to have stayed longer.

This is the oldest of the thermal baths famous in this city and we had opted to come here as it is a more traditional place! Visited on a Monday so it was not heaving with people!
There are several steam room and saunas and if you blink you can miss the fact that there are actually an internal and external hot tubs! Really not advertised! We stumbled on the one outside!
Like the primitive showers.. would recommend you take a pair of flip flops and a towel with you! There are hairdryers, but I was used one and my husband used one, both on my hair... would have taken hours to dry.... enjoyed our visit!

It is not a tourist place (yet). Nothing special: for 6900HUF you have a small Sauna and a small pool that you will have to fill. It will not be a clean place, nothing fancy, but it works like a charm aaaaand....

You can do anything. Dark place, unsuited for a romantic Instagram picture? Bring candles! Want more relax? Bring massage oil! You want to use shampo, or other stuff like a bath-bomb? You can!

This kind of freedom is rare for a "private spa" and it is not expensive. If you now how to handle this, it's gonna be a gem

We have very fond memories of Kiraly Thermal Baths, especially as we are both students. The place is rustic and very “native”. That was exactly what we were looking for. The very generous student discount (only 2000 ft) makes this place unbeatable. Remember to take your own towel and flip flops! The age mix at the place (we went four times!) was superb. About 50% were students / people under 30 and around 30% were people over 60 - a nice rainbow of ages. Everyone, including all the staff, were very talkative, friendly and helpful.

Went here on a Sunday afternoon and though having been before at this time and sometimes had to queue this was the longest I had ever had to wait - well over half an hour and the queue was right along the pavement outside.

Always gone after dark in winter and finally got to have some time in the outdoor hot tub though the water in it could be a little hotter especially when it's freezing outside. Also discovered an indoor jacuzzi. But again, you wouldn't fit very many people in it.

Initial looks are that this place looks a bit run down and unloved. Some may call it character but it was perhaps a bit beyond that.

Signage to the baths and changing rooms weren't great and the receptionist didn't really give us much help with what to do or where to go.

It wasn't too busy in the morning which helped. If you leave before 12, you also get your deposit back so it's worth getting up a bit early to start the day off with a relaxing dip.

I wouldn't recommend for a group of 10+ just turning up as it's not that big (with everyone else there).

A good place, for a Sunday evening though it had 30 minutes queue.
The cabins are clean, the water has a variety when you enter the polls when it comes to temperatures.
Small sauna with 2 different temperatures to choose.
Kinda smelly though but it's logical!
You don't need a cap.
Bring your own towel and pair of flip flops or else you have to pay a lot.
Also bring your swimsuit!
We had a good and relaxing time for 1 hour and a half.

Nice place to fell like going back in time... Hot water pools inside and a hot tube for 6 people outdoor in the backyard. Price is half than the other thermal baths in Budapest.

Didn't want to go to the touristy one, so this one was ideal. Also you get a partial refund if only stay for the morning ( for that get the morning ticket). It ended up being about A$8 for a dip as i had no intention to stay the whole day. Rustic, authentic, i think about 500 years old.Had a choice of locker or cabin to store belonging and to change. Staff pretty helpful.
