Took one look and thought no thanks. Just couldn’t see the appeal but others seemed to be having a ball.

Very well organized from the minute you arrive. Easy check in, good changing room facilities and locker area. We went at 10am on a Friday, not too busy. Make sure to bring your own towels, flip flops and bath robe if possible. Some parts need...More

We visited the Széchenyi baths on our recent trip to Budapest. It was very busy (as you would expect from a main attraction) but this made the experience a lot less relaxing. This is the sort of place you go just to say you have...More

I was disappointed in my visit to the Széchenyi Baths. The baths were so crowded and loud, far from a relaxing experience. If you are looking for an authentic bath experience, I would recommend checking out the smaller, less touristy baths in the city. If...More

Enjoyable way to spend an afternoon - very busy and indoor baths could have been a little warmer. Would recommend staying until after dark and paying a little extra for a cabin. Strictly no drinks in baths but staff were relatively lenient

The building is really interesting and in my opinion well maintained. The only thing, I did not like, was that you only have the option to buy a whole day pass and there are no options for a couple of hours visit. However, it is...More

And don’t forget to bring your sandals and flip flops otherwise you’ll get charged for everything, unless you book the spa package (towels and flip flops included)

Yes there are showers. But I recommend to have a cabin, because there isn't a big difference with the price and it is quite comfortable to leave your clothes and personal belongings there.
