We visit here every time we visit Budapest. There are few pools (varying temperatures); inside are many different baths, hot, cold, ice, steam room - it is very relaxing well worth the price!

We booked tickets with a private cabin and hired a towel. It was ok value for money. The pool outside was excellent like being in a hot tub. Didn't use any of the pools inside as they were muggy and looked dirty. Think people had been getting massages and sauna and steam rooms and all the oils and dead skin... More

It is the perfect place for a break, after a few days getting to know the city or after a day of walking around with hurt feet. Eitherway, I can assure you that a few hours in the hot pools will make you feel much better and relaxed.

A Spa is not normally my cup of tea!! However I wanted try the experience. I thought go during the week but still quite busy ... But I've got to say it was a very enjoyable and relaxing experience .... Spent about 4 hours just taking it easy and came out feeling rejuvenated !!! Thinking about going back tomorrow !!

Relatively high price, but offers a high variety of thermal pools with and saunas for different tastes. Also includes a long pool that is great for swimming. Gives a nice sensation to your skin even a few days after the visit :)

So impressed with the building before we even tried the spa. Lots of baths andnout doors was amazing. It was cold outside but the baths were definately thermal. We hired towels there for 1000huf each, easier than carrying towels around all day. A must see with a beautiful fairytale castle in the park opposite

What I assumed to be life guards turned out to be a couple of attendants whose sole purpose was to blow their whistle at swimmers. Seems you can enter any of the pools (and there are a lot of them), but if you want to go into the large open air swimming pool you are not allowed to have hair... More

Came here around 19:00 and stayed until around closing. The pools are very different from each other, leaving you the option to stay one place or often change setting. Included is a steam room and a ice cold bath next to it for cooling down before entering. It's not allowed to go in the swimming pool outside without a swim... More

I love the special atmosphere of this place. Like a beautiful magazine from the past. Yes, unfortunately you have to share this experience with others.
