These more than 100 years old Baths are one of the largest natural hot spring Spa Baths in Europe.The geo-thermal pools with their therapeutical powers are truly invigorating. And they are open on all days without any holidays. In fact, the rush on holidays is that much more.

This was on my to do list. Outside pool was the best. Inside, the building is tired and lacks any character. Spent 2 hours here which was enough.

I heard a lot for the outdoor thermal bath in Budapest. But being there and being part of this unique experience it’s more than fantastic.
Outdoor and indoor pools different thermal waters.
Next time I will try definitely beer bath.
Don’t miss this experience.

A little too busy and not fully open for an Easter Sunday visit. Enjoyable and felt relaxed when I came out but would have preferred a few less visitors. Our friends visited the day before and said that there were far less visitors on the Saturday. I would still recommend the experience as we all had fun and enjoyed the visit.

I found it overcrowded and intimidating and I didn’t like the smell which actually made me feel quite sick. I have visited thermal baths in other countries and whilst they have had a sulphur type smell I was ok with that. I actually felt dirty when I came out of here.
