There are many possibilities of thermal water in Hungary. At my region is the most famous is Hajduszoboszlo. When you need something quite and homely There is Gyula and Gyoparosfürdő on the south-east part of Hungary.
The Széchenyi Thermal Bath (CITY PARK = VAROSLIGET CLOSE TO ZOO, AMUSEMENT PARK, GUNDEL RESTAURANT, CIRCUS, HEROES SQUARE WITH STATUES OF HUNGARIAN KINGS, MUSEUMS OF FINE ARTS) is o­ne of the largest spa complexes in Europe. It's also the first thermal bath of Pest. It owes its existence to Vilmos Zsigmondy, a mining engineer. o­n his initiative, successful deep borings had been performed in the City Park, where later, in 1881 already an "Artesian bath" was in operation. However, this temporary type of bath was meeting the demands of the age less and less, so the Széchenyi Thermal Bath was built in 1913 o­n the basis of plans composed by Gyozo Czigler. The Bath was expanded in 1927 with a public bathing department for gentlemen and ladies and a beach site. In the middle of the 1960s, further transformations took place, including the creation of a group thermal section in bathing suits as well as a daytime outpatient hospital (complex physiotherapy department).
The reconstruction of the pools of the swimming section, their equipment with water filtering and circulation devices was completed in 1999. The so-called fancy bath includes a whirling corridor, underwater effervescence production, neck shower, water beam back massage installed in the sitting banks and many other services.
...... THE OTHER FAMOUS SPA IS THE GELLERT SPA AT SZABADSAG HID(THE GREEN STEEL BRIDGE AT CENTRAL INDOOR MARKET HALL= VASARCSARNOK) We find records about the "miraculous" springs spurting up o­n the territory of the Bath from as early a date as the 15th century. These springs were later favoured by the Turks as well, as they were larger and hotter than the Buda baths of the period. In the 17th century, the site was named Sárosfürdő (Mud bath) because of the fine spring silt that was pushed up together with the spring water and settled at the bottom of the pools.
The Gellért Thermal Bath and Hotel, known world-wide and highly favoured by foreigners, built in a secession style, opened its gates in 1918 and was expanded in 1927 by the wave-bath and in 1934 by the effervescent bath. In the course of the modernisation accomplished in our days, the sitting-pool in the swimming complex, the outdoor sitting pool and the children's pool were renovated; they were equipped with a state-of-the art water filtering and circulation device. At present, nearly all healing facilities may be used in the Gellért Thermal Bath. The Bath includes a department offering complex thermal bath acilities (daytime/outpatient hospital), it also has an inhalatorium.
Which famous spa? :)) we have several even in Budapest alone.

Hope this helps to choose from the wide variety :))
The 2 most famous spas are the Gellert and Szechenyi, although there are many more in Budapest and all over Hungary. My favourite is the Szechenyi, because there are many pools and the architecture is very beautiful. There is nothing better than sitting in 36 C water while the snow is falling around you.
