Széchenyi Thermal Bath reviews
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!
