  • This is the second spa we have been to in Budapest, well worth a visit, lots of smaller indoor pools as well as out door, if you want to swim you must bring a cap

  • Well organised. All pools were clean and not too busy. Very relaxing experience. Cafe can be used whilst your stay in the pools. Great time!

  • Absolutely amazing experience! The whole place is magical from the architecture of the buildings to the experience itself. The outdoor thermal baths felt amazing and soothing, even on a hot day. The prices are reasonable. There is a well stocked store with towels, slippers etc to purchase in case you forget something. I highly recommend getting a cabin so you can change without having to do it in a bathroom stall. The staff was very helpful and everyone spoke English. This is an absolute MUST while visiting Budapest!!!!
  • The exterior part is amazing - it's so pleasant to swim or sit in hot water in the fresh air, especially when it's sunny. If you intend to swim you have to take a swimming cap - they do not allow anyone without a cap into the swimming pool. The locker rooms feel a bit old, but I still liked the place. Despite the fact that someone took away my towel. Better take a towel with distinct colors!
