What is the Difference Between Cabins and Lockers? – Szechenyi Bath FAQ

Tourists visiting Szechenyi Spa Baths are often puzzled by the various tickets: there are separate prices of entry for tickets with lockers and tickets with cabins. But what is a cabin in Szechenyi Baths and what is a locker? Do you need them at all?

Well, first of all, there are no plain tickets without a locker or a cabin (except for the special bath tour tickets, which entitle visitors to have a short 15 minute bath tour in Szechenyi Baths).

Secondly, both lockers and cabins are for storing your belongings while you are enjoying the indoor baths and outdoor pools at Szechenyi Baths. Lockers are standard wardrobe type boxes with a lock on them (like the ones at train stations or at standard swimming pools). The size of the locker is 120x30x65 cm (1200 x 300 x 650 mm).

Cabins, on the other hand, are smallish changing rooms combined with storage facilities. In a bath cabin, you can get changed privately AND store your items in a safe place.

The cabin comfortably accommodates one person, so if you are a couple it might seem a bit tight, but you can take turns in getting changed (of course, the same applies to families or smaller groups too). As cabins take up more space and ensure your privacy, bath entries with cabin use (or more precisely, cabin hire) are more expensive than simple lockers. If you buy the cheaper bath entries with lockers, you will have to get changed in the women-only / men-only public changing rooms, and then store your bags in the lockers. If you wish to have your own privacy or are shy, cabins are definitely an ideal solution. Regular swimming pool goers will be fine with the lockers we assume.

  1. if buy 2 ticket with cabin, is it means we have 2 cabin to use? why the above comment said have to take turn to go in the cabin? since buying ticket alone is not possible?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Yap,
      it is not possible to but tickets without some kind of storage (locker or cabin).
      If you are buying 2 cabins, it means that both of you will have a private cabin.
      If you wish to save some euros, we are suggesting to buy 1 ticket with cabin and 1 with locker, so you can share the private cabin (the price difference is approx 2 Euros).
      Hope we can welcome you at Szechenyi Spa Baths!

  2. Hello, Is the cost same for 6 year old child as well? Would the cabin be able to store a large suitcase? How much time typically is suggested to enjoy the baths?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Dear Mili,
      unfortunately, there are no children or student tickets at Szechenyi Spa Baths, only full-priced adult tickets.
      As the thermal waters are not recommended for younger children, we kindly invite you to read our FAQs about children in the baths:
      The cabin size is approx. that of a dressing room in a clothes shop, so you can leave there the 20 kg suitcase as well ( if it is a regular size) along with your jackets etc.
      We suggest enjoying the hot pools for about 30-40 min periods for one with breaks.
      Enjoy your stay in Budapest!

  6. Hi

    so just to confirm any ticket you buy (the bath party for example) comes with a locker ?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Dear Gary,

      thank you for your comment.

      I am afraid, there are no plain tickets without a locker or a cabin to Szechenyi Baths.

      The tickets to the bath can be purchased with ‘cabin use’, or with lockers. The cabin is an extra service on behalf of Szechenyi Baths (plus they take up a lot of room), so the tickets with cabins are approx. 1.5 Euro more expensive than the standard bath tickets. It is up to you if you want to have a more upgraded service at Szechenyi Bath or you are fine with the cheaper bath tickets, which do not include the use of a cabin.
      The cabins at Szechenyi Bath can comfortably take up 1 person, and a bit more tightly even a couple to get changed

      Booking online and get your fast track entries is highly suggested, as the queues are often long at the Cashiers.

      Have a great time in Szechenyi Baths Budapest.

      • Hi,

        So does this mean that if I were to buy a single premium ticket online, this will include a locker when I arrive? Even though it doesn’t state on the ticket description that the locker is included like it does with the cabin on the trio ticket.

        • Szechenyi Spa Baths

          Hello Joe,
          yes, lockers are always included if there is no cabin in the offer.
          There are no tickets without some kind of storage.
