    We loved the baths. Szechenyi is one of the more touristy and crowded baths in Budapest, but it was still a unique experience. There are 3 pools outdoors, but the main attraction is indoors.

    Make sure you go early, the indoor thermal baths (as well as the steam rooms and saunas) close by 7:00 pm. Also, apparently if you spend less than 3 hours there, you will get some of your money back on your way out.

    Make sure you bring a towel, they charge you for one if you don't have one of your own. Also, bring flip-flops. You *can* walk barefoot, but I wouldn't recommend it.

    If you don't know what to wear/bring, treat it like going to the beach or a public pool. Don't bring valuables. But if you have a wallet/purse, you can store it in your locker. You get a bracelet with your admission that is also your locker key. You can grab any locker as long as its empty.

    They do have showers with nice hot water. But you'll have to bring your own shampoo. Womens and mens dressing rooms are separate. There are hair dryers.

    Last note: If you plan on getting a massage, book it online and early. They do get booked rather early.

    The Szechenyi Baths are one of Budapest's most worthwhile experiences. Budapest has a handful of thermal springs that were converted into baths by the Romans and have served that purpose ever since. Szechenyi is located in City Park. The building itself is a handsome Fin de Siecle palace leftover from the Habsburg era.

    You can rent a locker or a cabana and towels. Outside there are two large pools, one of which contains a whirlpool. Inside, however, you are treated to a succession of hot tubs and baths of various temperatures. The interior is wonderfully ornate with columns, stained glass and iron fixtures everywhere. An afternoon at Szechenyi is as good as a massage and highy recommended.

    One of the Budapest's most famous spas. It has 3 outdoor pools, 15 indoor thermal pools. You can also use the saunas, steam bathes. Towel and masseges are not included in the entrance price. There is no children ticket.

    Cloudy summer days are the best time to enjoy and relax at this beautiful site, not many tourists decide to go if it menaces rain, so the place will be practically yours.

    This is the LARGEST spa / bathing complex in Europe - this neo-baroque complex is the best in Budapest and the ourdoor pool is even open all year round. Explore the dozens of pools, saunas and steamrooms operating at different temperatures

    The bath has some great, heated outdoor pools and some indoor pools. I liked it because of the nice old building, but it was a bit overcrowded. So, if you're afraid of half-naked strangers, you shouldn't go there.

    Wonderful baths that date from the Roman era. Reminds you that Budapest was for centuries one of the most civilised cities in Europe.

    Not sure about the medicinal effects of the thermal baths but even just relaxing in the open air pools surrounded by last century neo-baroque buildings does miracles for the soul.

    This place is a hot tub party Hungarian style. The hot pools, spurting fountains, and thermal baths that make up Szechenyi are incredibly awesome and capable of easing the weariest of bones. A great place to spend a day, relax, and hang with the locals. You really shouldn't miss it.

    A day in the baths is a ubiquitous part of any trip to Budapest.. if you and up in the baths and not the zoo, but that's another story..

    It's less that £10 for a whole day access, and if you don't stay fro the whole day, part of the ticket price is refundable. The hot pool is full of men playing chess, right in the water, and the number of pool, steam rooms and saunas is remarkable. Some of them have aromatherapy oils in them for different treatments, then there's the torture chamber. Actually it's just really hot room - 80 Celsius no less, which is followed by a dip in an ICE cold plunge pool.

    I prefered this place over the swimming area in Hotel Gellert. On a hot summer day, nothing beats the friendly and nice atmosphere of this place. You can even see small crystals in the water!

    Hard to like or unlike, it depends what you are looking for. If like me, you have an aversion to far too strong smells and huge almost naked men sharing tiny pools, stay away from the indoor spa area and head to the outdoor thermic pool. Still tons of people, but quite enjoyable, specially on nice blue sky days. Do not forget to bring flip flops or so.. highly recommended to travel the warm waters.

    Термальный комплекс Сечен расположен в Городском Парке, самый большой в Европе лечебная купальня. Кроме того, комплекс окружает великолепная местность с парковыми деревьями.

    The Szechenyi baths are beautiful and expansive. They are much larger than the Gellert baths and have a lot more indoor and outdoor pool options. The major difference is that these baths are co-ed versus single sex baths. They also serve food and drinks outside as well. It gets quite crowded, but it is worth it to have an enjoyable, relaxing afternoon. You definitely dont want to feel rushed while you are here.
