Visited this thermal and wellness spa on 3rd July as it was a last minute trip and close to apartments that we were staying in.

Firstly and most importantly, I would like to give a WARNING TO WATCH YOUR CHANGE! I was given an older 10000HUF note in my change, which is no longer legal tender, I didn't realise this until my nephew pointed it out to me later that day when I was sorting out my money. Luckily, he offered to take it to his bank and gave me a new note. I find this very deceitful and dishonest of the staff in the spa to pass it in to a tourist, they warn the same about taxi drivers but I would have thought a business like this would just bank the old notes and not try to swindle their customers!

I actually wouldn't recommend this spa anyway, the old tender money was just another thing against it!

It isn't the biggest place in the world, despite being one of the cheapest, I don't think it's worth the 2500HUF (£6.70) it cost to visit and we only stayed for about 1 hour.
I read somewhere that it had been recently renovated, so dread to think what it was like previously.
The changing area is kept fairly clear/dry by staff with mops, but I'd definitely recommend that you keep your flip-flops on throughout!
The area with the lockers seems to be mixed sex and I could only see 3 changing cabins by the toilet and shower area.

Inside has 3 baths (38C, 36C and 20C), a sauna and ice area. There is a massage area too but I didn't use it, so can't comment.
Outside there are two pools (38C and 36C), a couple of grassed sun lounger areas and from the outside you can go to a further sauna, bath and toilet area via steps down underneath the building.
I didn't think much of the cleanliness; despite having to shower before entering the water, ALL of the pools could do with a really good clean, there was ingrained dirt on the floors, scummy marks on the steps and at water level and the tiles felt slimy to touch. The sauna/toilet area accessed from outside smelt of stale urine in the whole area, not very relaxing or good for my 'wellness'. It was absolutely vile and I left as soon as the smell hit me!
I would recommend that tourists visit the more touristy and better maintained baths. We didn't have time so as previously mentioned, this was a last minute trip, although I did consult trip advisor first and it had decent enough reviews. Perhaps my standards are higher or perhaps I was just unlucky. Either way, I wouldn't recommend this place and certainly not after their staffs sly behaviour!

We don't cheat just your nephew made a mistake. The older 10.000 HUF is a legal trender in Hungary. You can check it at our National Bank website: https://www.mnb.hu/en/banknotes-and-coins/news/detailed-summary-of-circulating-forint-banknotes I quote it for you: "Remains in circulation; the MNB will provide information about their withdrawal at a later date." We are sincerely apologize for your inconveniences. Thank you for your comprehensive review., We are working to became better and better to fullfill our customer's expectations.

It has everything what is needed for a relaxing afternoon, saunas, baths, buffet and sun-beds. The entrance fee is very reasonable. Everything was good, we had a very good time here.

Spent few hours there switchin between the normal, hotter and outdoor pools. And also tried the sauna which was really good and clean. It was full of local people, probably I was the only one foreigner, and not so crowded. Price is affordable. Really nice place to enjoy the bath not the view

I found his bath to be clean, tidy utilitarian, but not to have the charm of my favourite (Veli Bej). I bought a ticket for both inside and out, I think if I went again Id just go inside. Outside is nice if you like to sit outside but I felt a bit surrounded by windows looking at me and a car was parked by the side, it sort of felt like an afterthought stuck out in the car park. I loved the jets and sat in front of one and under one to massage my back. Careful if you sit on one it fills your swimsuit up with air bubbles, which was kind of funny. The indoor pools were more restful for me, but I felt I needed one at around 26-28, cool but not 20 which I couldn't manage to go in! My wristwatch malfunctioned too,it let me out but not back in and then it wouldn't let me leave the complex, Luckily it did let me have my clothes back! No problems, someone let me out! All in all, nice and good value. Access to everything and a locket was 2400 HUF

I had read reviews of the better known baths in Budapest and there were many descriptions of people feeling confused or that they missed out due to communication gaps. The Dandar Baths is a place for locals, but I was welcomed and assisted in English at every turn. I enjoyed it so much, I went back a second time.
The baths are easily accessible from Tram 2. They have secure lockers for your stuff and plenty of changing cabins. There are 3 indoor pools; very hot, hot, and a freezing plunge pool for after the sauna. Neither of the 2 outdoor pools is very hot, so you can spend lots of time there. It was busier in the afternoon than in the morning, but it was never overly crowded. All in all, a delightful experience.

As this spa was only about a 10/15 minute walk from my hotel I went midweek after 5pm when it is slightly cheaper entry but still paid extra for access to the outdoor pools and sauna world. Plenty of rows of lockers but communal and didn't see any single sex areas for getting changed.
Inside area bit busier than outside. Actually got to do a little swimming in the slightly cooler outdoor pool as there were only a few people in it. The warmer one was very nice to relax in and be able to look up at the stars and moon though getting out the air temperature was pretty cold so couldn't stay exposed for too long.

As an alternative to the crowded, expensive thermal baths in Budapest, this place is perfect. We really enjoyed our visit and tried all the pools and sauna. The outdoor pools were fun.

Excellent bath just 10 min away from city center by tram. Bath is quite small and not well known among tourists, so prices for admission and services is almost half of the large-bath prices. I also had an amazing massage from masseur Ali Idrisz, so if you are in for a local and priceworthy experience in Budapest, this bath is for you.

We were keen to get away from the tourist heavy main baths and bravely thought we would give this one a go. Staff at reception and upstairs were easy to communicate with and very helpful. There were two outdoor thermal pools which were lovely to soak in on a freezing day, and there were three indoor pools. It wasn’t too crowded but seemed to be primarily locals. However, it was still user friendly enough for English speaking tourists like my partner and I. Good for an authentic Hungarian thermal bath experience. Also seemed to be quite reasonably priced comparatively.
