4.3
#8 of 65 in Spas in Budapest
Give yourself the royal treatment at Veli Bej Bath, the city's oldest Turkish bathhouse. Budapest is well-known for its thermal springs, one of which the Ottoman conquerors chose as the site for these baths back in the 16th century. In addition to the original architecture, you can take advantage of many modern features, such as Finnish and infrared saunas, Jacuzzis, massage showers and a series of thermal pools. The healing properties of the water are especially beneficial to people who suffer from problems with bones and joints. Massages are available at additional cost, and the complex also includes a cafe. Keep in mind, however, that only visitors older than 14 are allowed to enter.

  • This baths are really beautiful and perfect for relaxing. It has one big and four small baths, each with a different temperature. It also has a pool, jacuzzi, sauna and few more things. There are also few fountains where you can drink some water. All you need is swimsuit and flip flops, towel can be rented with a deposit. A locker is also provided. At a very good price you can enjoy a whole morning or afternoon of baths with locals (not many people comes here neither I have seen any tourist). Really worth it.
  • Beautiful communal bath with 4 small pools in each corner plus a larger pool for swimming and wet and dry saunas. Came right at 3pm and there was a line but we got in without issue. The smaller corner pools had cleaner water than the large pool (so not sure that they actually felt clean the water in between the morning and afternoon session like I've seen claimed) but in general everything was pretty clean and would absolutely return.
