Relax in one of the octogonal pools illuminated by holes in the 16th century Ottoman dome at Kiraly Baths, the city's oldest thermal baths. One of the few baths in the city with its own source of thermal water, this space has remained largely unchanged from its original state, making you feel like you are stepping back in time. The baths, pools, and Jacuzzi are all unisex facilities. Bring your own swimsuit, towel, and flip flops, and store your personal belongings in the secure lockers. Note that children are not permitted at the baths. A visit to Kiraly Baths represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Budapest online vacation builder to plot your vacation.

Kiraly Baths reviews
Builded by the Turkisch Ottomans. Beautiful, clean, amazing to see. Highly recommended. We come again here as always. History and relaxing at the same time more »
Beautiful 16th century baths, quite rustic and traditional but very clean. For only €9 entrance, we spent a lovely afternoon in the baths. more »
Where to start..?! The baths are tucked away from the main tourist attractions but easily reached via buses or metro within 10 minutes. You feel like you are receiving an authentic thermal bath experience with the locals rather than the larger tourist traps. Price is less than half of the big spa's. I wish I had visited twice during our 4 day stay. So invigorating! Main hot pool with side pools of varying temps. Also sauna, steam room, outside hot tub, inside jacuzzi. Changing is easy, so many changing rooms (I wouldn't bother paying more for a 'cabin') and lockers. You can't take cameras / phones inside the baths - which is totally understandable as other bathers don't want to be caught on camera in their swimmers. Bathing costumes are required at all times. Definitely make this part of your trip to Budapest!
Oh my, oh my. One of the greatest places to chill on Sunday in Budapest. Traditional place built in XVI century, free from tourists. If I would live in this beautiful city, visiting this place would have been a ritual with my friends on every weekend. From outside it looks pretty 'old', but inside you can feel years of history and this very unique vibe, that this place gives. I highly recommend visiting this place.
