I realize I don't really enjoy bathhouses where I don't know the procedure. I've gone to Hammam in Turkey, I lived in Japan and used the public baths on a regular basis, so I don't mind being naked around strangers, but... I just couldn't find enough information about what to expect, or what was expected of me, so we only... More

This is very place where Tbilisi was started 1700 years ago. People found hot springs and built first little town around it and built roman style bath there. Afterwards Capital of Georgia was moved here by king Vakhtang Gorgasali. During many centuries bath were center of social life of Tbilisi.

On a good side, you would be very clean once you get out of there ;) On a bad side: - Had to wait for almost 40 minutes, although we did the booking in advance - Sauna is not warm enough - you can sit there for 15 minutes easily w/o sweating - Massage for males is rather tough even... More

We spent a very relaxing hour here. We paid 50 Lari for the royal experience and it was worth it. We also had a very relaxing scrub and massage for an extra 20 Lari per person. I would say that a visit to T'bilisi is not complete without a visit to the baths!

This is a nice area: a park, the baths, some cafes and restaurants, the mosque and a hidden cascade behind. Nice to take some time to discover and not rush.

The sulphur baths are a traditional Georgian experience. While similar to Turkish-style hamams, they are distinct. For one, they are sulphur waters, so it's kind of like sitting in a stinky hot tub. I always rented a private room at Bath Bakhmaro, or Bath #1 if Bakhmaro was full. It's true that the proprietors are rarely friendly and you should... More

Have had Turkish style baths around the world and was not a stranger to the experience however would recommend skipping this while in Tbilisi. We had a reservation at royal bath but when we arrived the very gruff woman told us they were too busy. Nevermind we had made a booking by a Georgian friend, it was a no go.... More

The place is very nice and interesting, still in the downtown of old Tbilisi but looks like far far. Very negative thing is that it's really full of gipsies that are constantly coming around you, with kids, families asking for money and you need to be careful too much.

If you want to understand Old Tbilisi lifestyle, Sulphur Baths is must try thing. It is really relaxing, like hot baths in Japan. Interesting architecture and good time spending. There are lots of cafes and restaurants in that area. It is small, don't need even more than 2-3 hours to explore that area and try baths. Had great time with... More
