Not everyone has the budget for those fancy Frette towels that you can find in five-star hotels, but that doesn’t mean you want them to be terrible either. You still deserve so-soft-you-could-sleep-on-them towels, just maybe at a cheap-beach-towel price. To help you find all the towels you could want — from plush to luxury-like to even quick-drying — for no more than $50 per set, we scoured Amazon to bring you the best bath towels, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers. To make comparisons a little easier, each price listed is for bath towel sets of two to eight towels apiece. And once your bathroom is set, we’ve got you covered for beach towels, hair towels, and bathrobes, too.

“This set of towels can easily compete with any retail set of towels except I didn’t have to go face the masses,” says one reviewer of this six-piece set from AmazonBasics. Another reviewer, who admits she “didn’t have high hopes for these,” changed her mind, calling them, “really, really nice. They’re nice enough to have on display but cheap enough to use every day.” One happy shopper even thinks these are the “best towels we’ve ever owned,” adding that “they are thick and soft and high quality.” Because of the price, many were concerned about how they’d last after washing, but this reviewer assures that they can survive: “These have held up great the last month. No fading or bleeding onto our white dish towels and our lint trap in the dryer has not been full of black lint from these.”
