Owner description: In our salon in Pest to satisfy the demands the SPA section plays the main role from 2011. We maintain the rejuvenation of soul and body with refreshing fish pedicure and exclusive full body treatments. Our special baths clear the mind and take away all the tension, the touch of our exotic massages get into the deepest dimensions of the soul, our body scrubs awaken latent energy, our rituals rejuvenate soul and mind as well as body. Naturally, besides our SPA treatments our clients enjoy our hairdressers', mani-pedicurists', and cosmetologists' caring. This place is a shelter to escape from the bustle of the world and the place of recreation, where one can float in the gentle vibration of calm.

I visited the salon on the pest side.

Much more a beauty salon than a spa but very impressed with the friendly helpful english speaking staff and the variety of treatments they offer here.

I had a spirit uplifting massage for the equivalent of around 30 euros which is half what I'd pay in France so great value.

Nice boudoir style treatment room too, would love to come back for couples treatments with my husband one day.

My partner and I went to A List and had the sweet dream couples treatment and manicure and pedicures. Initially the spa looks small but the room we had our treatment in was perfect, full body salt scrub, big bath together followed by amazing massages, the girls that massaged us were very good, professional and friendly. We followed this treatment by manicure and pedicures which were equally as good. I would thoroughly recommend this salon, it's staff and services. Just be aware that when it says spa, it may not quite be what you expect but certainly worth a visit. I will be back for sure.

The fish were weird, but worth the experience. We splurged and got the exclusive fish pedicure that included nail care, and the girls were very meticulous with their work. Friendly staff. I will be coming back for even more affordable services during my ten day stay in Budapest!!!

If you don't want to hotel prices for a massage, go to A List.
There's not much ambiance but the masseuses were skilled. Price was 1/2 that of hotel; even more reasonable Monday through Thursday. We passed on the fish (see other reviews) but they made for good pictures!
There are a variety of coupons available for an additional 20% off; we got ours from the tour service.

If you forgot your swimsuit and are looking for an alternative to the baths of Budapest to pamper yourself, A-list provides an excellent opportunity to do so! There are locations on both the Buda and Pest sides, and my friend and I visited the Buda location. Upon entering, we were greeted with a friendly reception and warm cups of coffee as they prepared for our services. We first had our eyebrows shaped by a skilled and professional beautician. Afterwords, we had fish pedicures, in which little "doctor fish" nibbled away the dead skin on our feet. The sensation was similar to submerging one's feet in a tank of soda water, with a rather tickling sensation. The beautiful decor, relaxing music, and lovely tea only enhanced the experience. You are placed in the window for the fish pedicure, allowing pedestrians to view the interesting spectacle of individuals with their feet in tanks of fish, drawing quite a few funny reactions! After half an hour, my feet were in the best shape they have been in for quite some time. I felt completely pampered after these two services and my interactions with all of the staff. Even with such exquisite services, the prices were entirely affordable for a student traversing Europe on a strict budget. I would highly recommend visiting the salon to any Budapest tourist looking for an unforgettable experience of relaxation and indulgence!
