This was completely worth it! I used public transport the whole 2 days, went to 5 art museums, checked out the bath house included in the Budapest card, and so much more. I will def. be purchasing again next time I'm in Budapest in April. Thanks!

Got there at 9am and booked a cabin too, not busy and all areas were clean! started to get busy around 12pm. Thermal baths were clean also and really warm and had a fab time. I stayed for 4 hours and thought that was enough for me. l

It was an amazing experience. It had several rooms/spas that you could choose from. The cabins were also clean and pretty nice & private. Definitely would recommend this to other travelers.

Fun with the swirl of the outdoor pool, they are the most striking.

Great! The weather helped as best pools are outside
