  • If you had one activity to do in Budapest, you must visit a thermal bath in Budapest. This one is particular is well known for its spectacular architecture and feel. While the staff is quite rude...

  • Couldn’t buy the package we wanted even though we tried booking ahead. The lockers were wholly out of order / the changing rooms were good and very clean but this is where the cleanliness stopped...

  • Lovely place, pools indoors and outdoors are nice temperatures. Remember to bring flip flops with you for walking around in especially indoors. The cafe area is decent, had a lovely beef stew there. Would also recommend getting a cabin to get changed in though. Its great you can be there all day to 8pm too with the one entrance fee. Definitely worth a visit.
  • The most beautiful thermal baths in Europe? I am inclined to say yes, exactly. A very nice solution is that the tickets are all-day. It doesn't matter how long you stay at the thermal baths, you pay one price. All pools open, inside and out clean. We bought tickets with private cabins - I recommend choosing this option. We then have a private changing room that is electrically locked. The thermal baths are beautifully situated in a park, around a lot of monuments and restaurants. In the vicinity of the zoo, close to the metro and easy access to the Danube. A cap is required only in the sports track at the swimming pool.
