It's a wee bit confusing getting around but the choice of pools and temperatures are amazing although I was looking for heat as it was march and there was snow on the ground so it's a little surreal walking around in a bikini outdoors, however the outside pool in the winter is magical ....just floating around in the hot thermal water with steam rising is a truly amazing experience would recommend

After hearing so much about the thermal spas of Budapest, we decided to try the larger of the two most famous.
Entry for a whole day single entry with a locker was around 5200 forints.
Wasn’t great on English sign posts to the female changing rooms. As well as the way to the outdoor pools, which took us a while to find.
Various different temp indoor pools of different sizes and sauna and steam rooms.
Outdoor pool was extremely busy.
Ended up staying for only 2 hours as we then got bored, would recommend future visitors to pay for the 2 hr ticket rather than the all day.

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.
