My wife and I pre-booked our tickets online so we didn't have to wait in the queue, and I'm glad we did! We arrived at 10am and it was rammed already! We also paid a couple of extra £ to have a 'cabin' which is just a small room you change in and store all your stuff for the day. You're given a watch with a chip in it upon arrival and we were designated a cabin through that. the chip atomically locked and opened our cabin door so it all felt very safe. The day we came here, the baths water was 26 degrees and the air temperate was 30! There's a couple of indoor pools go in, which includes a plunge pool.
This place is well worth a trip!

Very nice diversion to spend a few hours experiencing a large European spa. I'd recommend visiting in the morning before the eventual crowds arrive. Reasonable pricing (approx $20) for entry and towel rental. Inside you'll find a large thermally heated pool complex surrounded by seating and lounges. The spa has it's own train stop, so is easy to access. Also several taxis available and convenient location just past Heroes Square in a large city park. Indoors at this large complex are several warm and cold plunges with saunas and steam rooms as well. Massage services and cabana rentals are also available. Overall an interesting experience to soak and frolic in these healthy thermal waters. Good way to start or finish any day.

During our 3 night stay at Budapest, we did visit to Szechenyi Bath, it was a great experience having warm temperature various pool. All the facility with lockers & private cabins were good. Worth a visit.

Due to it's popularity, we were afraid this bath may be too touristy, but it turned out to be a good outing. We did not book online in advance, but due to the cloudy day expected and were rewarded with the crowds being low. Navigating entry, the towel and locker fee was a little challenge with the attendants, but we figured it out. Even with smaller crowds it was still hard to find a lounge chair. I would suggest coming earlier in the day to get a better experience. We stayed a few hours and the queue for drinks and food was long as well as just getting spot on the jacuzzi wall. There's a neat whirlpool around it that goes off periodically throughout the hour making for a fun semi-lazy river experience. People tend to take their time under the jet sprays and others seemed to know about and have experience with the medicinal attributes of the baths by seriously lingering in "spots". A jumbo-tron plays at one pool juxtaposed with the bright yellow of the building, it's unique, classical architectural and surrounding Roman-like pools. If I were to do it again I would check out the massage, saunas and other ares of the interior.

An amazing thing to do while in Budapest! For all ages.

There are lots of different temperatures of pools/baths, saunas and steam rooms. Really fun to dip in and out of most of them, the others create some amazing relaxation. Outside is more of a place to have fun and that we did.

Great value for money and we spent a few hours there.
