We decided to brave the public baths and it was okay. It was incredibly cheap - just 3GEL entrance for as long as you want. You can save more money by taking your own towels, flip flops and soap too. Bath No. 5 also has private baths, but we just went to the public option. They do not have a... More

This is very important spot Tbilisi and the place which gave the name to the whole city because in georgian language "tbili" means warm and here warm sulfur springs came out from the earth since ancient times. There is a legent telling that king Vakhtang Gorgasal who was hunting in this area found that his falcon drop into the water... More

Don´t let yourself get turned down. Sure, all is worn out and looks cheesy...but hey, you are on a trip and hell - this is all cheap. 1 hour private banya and scrub goes for 60 GEL (about 25$). Be careful with the hot water....you will feel like a boiled egg (temp is 43+ degrees....), so for average Joe, not... More

Visited the place in the morning - do make sure to book an evening visit in advance as all baths are fully booked in the evenings by locals. The interior is old and pretty simple. Facilities are pretty old too. However, the bath itself and the massage are just great. Great relaxation in the bath, intense massage afterwards - you'll... More

We were a couple going to the Royal Bath after 2 weeks of an exhausting travel to the Caucasus. Different from European standard, if you are expecting same service level and decoration than in Europe, this is definitively, not the place for you to go. This is most a Soviet time bath atmosphere but still worth it. We paid 40€... More

We visited the Royal Bath in the middle of one afternoon and had very friendly ladies introducing everything. The massage was relaxing and well done. At the Royal Bath there are only private rooms.

We followed the guide book there for a famous Georgian spa. However I was shocked by the conditions! The reception hall looks fairly ok. Clean, although smell a bit sulphur and smoke. We were brought to a private room, fortunately for a look first ( I guess the receptionist knows how to treat foreigners). There was a man in the... More
