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. Hello, we are planning to visit your baths in July. It says in your website that the thermal spa is not advisable for 14 years old and below. But they can go to the public pools. Is it in the same area with the thermal baths? My other daughter is 10 years old. We really hate to forgo the Szechenyi Baths in our itinerary. I hope we can bring her inside as well.

      Hello Ms Jade,

      children over 14 years old can go to the baths, but for kids under 14 the pools are not recommended, but if the parents decide to come anyway at their own responsibility, they can.

      As most of the outdoor and indoor pools and baths at Szechenyi Baths are more than 33 degrees Celsius, which means increased stress for the cardiovascular system of kids, whose body is not fully developed yet to be able to cope with the heat of the bath waters.

      I am afraid, only the big, outside swimming pool is not thermal water.

      Szechenyi Bath was, and is still aimed at adult bathers, so we recommend families with children visiting one of the open air lidos in Budapest, especially Palatinus Pools on Margaret Island and Dagaly Lido close to Arpad Bridge (north of Margaret Island).

  2. Hello,

    We are planning to join Sparty next month. Can we carry a single bag with our own towels (hygienic reasons) and store it in our cabins? Also, is it mandatory for everyone to be in proper swimsuit? Is there any specific dress code?
