The experience was amazing. I loved spending time in the baths and saunas afterward. I arrived in the afternoon and got in quickly. As mentioned, there was a private changing room. I also tried the beer bath, which was not that great but still fine. The only suggestion is that I couldn't find any place to charge my phone as the battery was dying. Overall, yes, it's a great place and including it in the itinerary is a must.

Thought winter was not a good time to go...who knows, came on boxing day, sun shining, and the best experience ever, bath, sauna, and massage. Could do with a pleasant cafe or restaurant.

Great experience. The boat trip was very good. The meal was good, and our waiter, Csabi, was excellent. The little orchestra was very good. The baths were rather crowded, but a good experience
