Szechenyi Spa Baths make up the largest medicinal bath in Europe. With 15 indoor pools, saunas, steam rooms and 3 huge outdoor pools, you'll be bathing in utter bliss and boosting your health at the same time. Get spa access with this deal and feel the high concentration of minerals in the water making your skin baby soft. This delicious indulgence should be part of any trip to Budapest.
The idea of thermal baths was popular with the Romans, who introduced them here. This trend was continued by the Turks, who spent a fair amount of time lounging about after taking over. Indeed, that tradition of healthful soaks is centuries-strong here.
At Szechenyi Spa Baths you'll enjoy hot tubs, saunas, and jet-powered underwater massages. Plus there's a gym, if you want to 'earn' your soaks. However, you partake in these healthful activities, we recommend you stay hydrated with a couple glasses of cold mineral water.

Most of the positive reviews for this made my partner and I want to visit the spa, which was nice at first. However, a word of warning - do not attempt to play chess at the boards visible in the main pool:
I had an elderly man physically attack me when I had moved an empty bottle off a chessboard not being used. He angrily exclaimed something in Hungarian, with the only statement I understood being stated as "Private chess!".
I was obviously shocked, and walked away with my partner.
The lifeguard saw this and spoke to the elderly man, but it only seemed to be a verbal warning.
Therefore, a nice day was ruined by this event, and think the spa could've done something better about it:
1). If the chess was actually private/by invitation only then please put signs up to say this.
2). The spa should not stand for any physical abuse, and as such people misbehaving like this should be removed from the pool immediately.
If you do intend to go there, don't play the chess as the people are not at all friendly.
