Why Travelers Choose This Tour
This comes with five visiting options, including fast-track private entry with your own cabin, and entry only.
Located in Budapest’s City Park, the Széchenyi Baths were built in 1913 and completed in 1927. Locals and visitors alike come to enjoy the city’s largest and warmest thermal spa, with a plethora of indoor and outdoor pools, including spring-fed baths. Begin your day by skipping the long lines of the main entrance and heading to the rear, where an English-speaking host will greet you. You’ll be led to your own changing cabin so you can prepare for a full day of relaxation. Under the stunning interior domes, make your way from pools to saunas and steam rooms at your own pace. The temperature varies for each of the 18 pools, with the large outdoor swimming pool at a temperature of 84 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius) or the steaming pool at 106 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius), a fine place to sit back and treat your muscles. Don’t worry about the time while you pool hop; this ticket provides full-day access. When you’re finally ready to head out, use your Széchenyi Spa gift of shampoo and shower gel to rinse off in the shower. If you’re in the mood to top off the day with a little more luxury, upgrade to include a 20-minute aromatherapy massage. To see a map of Széchenyi Spa, please click on 'View Additional Info'.
We came on a cold rainy Sunday and the people who were supposed to let us in were late. Apparently with the viator option it is only 9am-5pm but since they were late we were "offered" to either wait or buy new tickets directly from the spa, which was laughable. They were an hour late arriving but we waited. Then when you finally enter there is no organization at all. Everyone who works there tells you to speak "to my colleague" and directs you to someone else who can't help you either. The funny thing is our questions were simple, like where do we change or rent a towel? Now, the facilities themselves are quite dirty and leave much to be desired. The indoor pools were just gross. The out door pool was much hotter and really enjoyable but ultimately its a hot pool with way too many people in it and not worth the cost. I would say save your money and do something that is actually fun. I had more fun with the free walking tour then I did in this dirty pool. Also, Buda castle is well worth a visit and Ruszwurm confectionery. On a positive note, it is pretty to look at and that's about it.
Had a great time here. Didn't stay in too long as it was freezing out. The waters were very warm - just the run from the changing cabins was cold. We went on a Saturday afternoon and it was not too crowded. The cabins are a definite. It was very clean and tidy throughout. Highly recommend it.
This was a skip the line. That’s all it was. There was no one there to meet us to skip. Plus the time said 9am but it didn’t open until 10. I think many people were told we had to be there at 9. There was a wait (15 minutes) but once inside we got outr wrist bands and were directed to the changing rooms. This was the second tour of the Christmas holiday that Viator did not have the times correct. If you are going to offer tours during the holidays at least make sure the times are correct.
A must do when visiting Budapest, we arrived st 10.15sm when it was a bit quieter, stayed until 6pm , much busier by this time, however I still found it difficult to leave, had such a relaxing day , pools inside and out were einderful
The spa was very relaxing and fun. We enjoyed trying out many of the pools. I'm not sure what the Viator booked package gave us that we wouldn't have received by just showing up but regardless, it was fun.
I was dissapointed in this one , It has 3 pools, but the largest one is a lap pool only for swimming laps, must wear a cap. The othe 2 pools one was closed and there must have been 200 people in the one that we could go in, It was creepy, to have the people on top,of us. We did not change it felt a little bit like a municiple pool., Unfortunetly I was really looking forward to this one ,really dissapointed.
