Wonderful bath house with so many pools! They all vary in temperature and are fun to experience. As a foreigner, this was a cool place to experience! Also, there are 5-6 different saunas within the thermal bath area that are free to use and felt great!! Definitely check out at least one of them if you have a chance. My personal favorite was the aroma sauna, which has some sort of mint or menthol that made your whole body feel tingly! So refreshing :)
It was a wonderful place to go once. We really enjoyed relaxing in this beautiful place, but as far as the baths themselves go it was a bit disappointing. Most of the baths inside were pretty much the same. And the sauna's were too busy to enjoy them. Conclusion: if you want to visit a spa in Budapest, go to this one because it's beautiful and like no other! But do it once because every other spa has more variety in baths and probably less busy.
