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.

  2. Greetings from Sweden
    We plan to rent a cabin. Can you confirm if a safe locker is inside the cabin or do we need to rent a safe locker seperately?

      Dear John,
      the cabin is like a tiny room, or cubicle, where you can get changed and store your belongings.
      The cabin size is approx. that of a dressing room in a clothes shop.
      The door of the cabin has a unique chip code lock, which opens and closes with a special waterproof bracelet: in fact, with the chip incorporated in the wristband bath entry provided at the bath. Please make sure that your door is locked with the silicon wristband before leaving the cabin. As you are wearing the band all the times, it is quite secure if you make sure that the door is not left open.
      If you decide to book tickets with lockers you can get changed in the changing rooms and store your bags in the lockers.
      The size of the locker is 120x30x65 cm (1200 x 300 x 650 mm).
      The lockers are also opened and closed by your wristband.
      Hope we can welcome you at Szechenyi Spa Baths!

      Hi Kristine,
      there is a cabin included in each ticket, which means you will have one cabin per person. Yes, you can leave your luggage there while you are in the Baths. Valuables are recommended to be left at the safety boxes at the entrance (please ask for them upon check-in).


    Good evening.
    If I want to go to the baths only after 19H00, how can I book two tickets online?
    During my purchase, they force me to agree on the following: that I’m going to enter from 09AM to 06OM and can stay until 10PM, If I decide that.

    Kind regards.

  6. I am trying to book for New Year’s Day and it is saying it is unlikely a cabin will be available. Why is this!

      Dear Hannah,
      Jan 1 is usually very busy in Szechenyi Baths. According to our experience from the previous years, it is possible that we might run out of cabins due to high demand. If you have pre-purchased a cabin ticket, but can’t get one when you arrive, you will be offered to wait a few minutes until a cabin becomes available, or you can choose to have a locker instead, and ask for a refund at the Help Desk.
