Abanotubani is the ancient district of Tbilisi, Georgia, known for its sulfuric baths.Located at the eastern bank of the Mtkvari River at the foot of Narikala fort across Metekhisubani, Abanotubani is an important historic part of the city — the place, where according to a legend the King of Iberia, Vakhtang Gorgasali’s falcon fell, leading to a discovery of the...

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

I went here with a friend. It was a bit confusing at first as it said on the webpage that there was public baths but when we went there they told us that they only had private baths. We got one anyway and felt a bit ripped off. The bath was really nice anyway but it was just so hot.... More

It was pouring with rain on a Monday so all the museums were shut and I decided the baths were a good place to go on a wet day. As a solo female traveller who isn't prudish but is on a budget I was looking for a public bath, didn't want to pay for a private room with no-one to... More

Have you ever seen any Soviet movie from 70-80'? If not I can recommend to watch "S legkim parom" serial. The first part is about a group of friends visited Russian banya in the fall of the year, washed themselves, had a lot of vodka/brandy shots and finally got lost. The other series parts are about waking up in another... More

This place was in my 'todo in Tbilisi'-list. It's nice, little bit soviet-service, but nice. - Many halls to choose from. The interrior is fabulous. Feels like you're part of some arabian fairy-tale. - Of course water smells disgusting. But in 10-15 minutes you'll get used to it. - Water can feel too hot. But it's possible to dilute it... More

If you’re not the most body confident person or really just don’t fancy getting your kit off in front of strangers, then this might be the bath house for you since it only has private rooms. These baths are located under the domes in the square, where you’ll descend into a subterranean underworld with a blue hue. Most of the... More
