We spent a couple of hours on a Sunday morning at the Baths. All of the offerings were not available on Sunday, but it was good to just enjoy the atmosphere. The baths were already starting to get crowded, even at this early hour. Try several of the baths both inside and out to get the whole experience.

We hemmed and hawed about going to the baths because the weather was quite cool and overcast (and one of us had a cold). We quickly were extremely glad we went - and the sun came out, to boot. There were two outdoor pools open, each with a different temperature level and set-up. One pool lad a circular current that was so much fun to be in, especially with all the kids there; also the water jets could give you a massage. There were 2 inside hot pools for soaking, but the outdoor pools were best for us. A uniquely Hungarian experience!

This can be a fun way to spend a morning or afternoon (or a whole day, if this is your kind of thing). I recommend visiting early before it gets really crowded, as it does by early afternoon.
While the pools are nice, the staff were generally unfriendly, especially in the cafe. When I asked the lady behind the register what was being served for lunch, she barely looked up and replied that she did not know (though she could have found out by taking three steps and lifting a few lids to see what was inside). When another server gave my sister a small portion of chicken, she asked for a bit more and the server glared coldly at her.

Great place, different pools and water temperatures, nice environment. Just take your swimming clothes, a towel and a pair of flip flops (though you can even rent them if you forget).
Lovely way of ending a hot day. Inside pools close at 7 pm, but the open ones, at 10.

A MUST DO for Budapest. Beautiful architecture, and the baths are relaxing and warm! Mostly locals that go there.
