What is a good thermal bath in Budapest that isn’t too touristy?

Veli bej

The Veli bej bath is hidden inside a hospital, it’s an Ottoman-era bath and it’s been fully renovated. This bath is rarely crowded as it not widely known to tourists. The Veli Bej gives you the feeling of an original Turkish bath.

Lukács Baths

The Lukács Bath has a lesser-known, less grandiose take on the Széchényi and Gellert Baths, and the prices there are also more reasonable. It offers two outdoor pools, a heated indoor pool (best for winter), thermal bathrooms as well as an extensive sauna world.

Dandár Baths

The Dandár Bath is located in Budapest’s former industrial part of the IX District. They offer low prices since this bath is mostly taken by locals. You can enjoy the heated outdoor pools in the garden of the complex as well.
