I went for an afternoon at the bath house when my husband and I traveled to Moscow last June for a friend's wedding. I was a little nervous to go to the women's section on my own as I don't speak the language, but it was such a fun and relaxing experience. Please note this is a traditional bath house,... More

We found this rather dirty, run down, and frankly way too expensive for what we got. The pictures are deceiving, the interior really doesn't look anything like that. The steam bath itself is clean, but the showers and everything else was, particularly in the women's section, dirty. The price of almost 2500 Rub simply isn't worth it.

This is one of the most authentic experiences you can have in Moscow or indeed Russia! It’s bit intimidating when you turn up as there aren’t many instructions but a couple of the attendants spoke English and helped me through. The baths themselves weren’t actually the highlight for me, although they were very enjoyable. It’s what happens after the baths... More

I would recommend to go banya with friends especially if you have Russian friends. I didn't go myself but my hubby experienced the enjoy of "authentic Russian sauna". I asked administrator to look after him since he doesn't speak a word of Russian and he was looked after very well. We also had lunch at the restaurant just outside banya... More

To start with we found it quite difficult to work out what we should do an where we needed to go. However, with a bit of help from a few other customers and a very friendly member of staff, we were all set for a great experience. Red hot sauna an freezing pool is probably the best combination you can... More

Sanduny bathhouse is a must try when visiting Moscow. The exterior of the building has nothing to show more than a regular apartment building, the interior however is sumptuous. We had heard about different classes in the bathhouse and we thought of getting to the first class after asking about the prices. Sadly any sort of communication was impossible with... More

I love banya culture, and am fortunate enough to enjoy an outstanding one in San Francisco called Archimedes Banya...so the opportunity to visit Sanduny Bathhouses was one I did not want to miss. My friend and I literally ran through the streets of Moscow to get there before the last tickets were sold at 8pm. We got there 10 minutes... More

Unfortunately, I am sorry to say that the Banya experience was the downside of our vacations in Russia. For the mixed opinions of the other travelers, your chance of being well received dependes on luck or shifts! They have beautiful buildings with authentic ambiance but the service jeopardizes the experience. The front desk didn't know or didn't have our private... More

I spent 2 weeks in Moscow and I ended up going to the bathhouse 3 times. It's really an unmissable experience. The palace is elegant and with a luxurious feeling. The staff doesn't speak English but they go out of their way to help. The sauna is extremely hot and the overall relaxation during and after sauna is priceless. Every... More

Besides some bad reviews, I decided to have this full Russian experience. Between their broken English and my almost non existing Russian I managed to get in, get seated, get all I needed, book and get a 45 minutes full body sponge massage and relax fully. Mainly Russian men and a few tourists, they go like English men go to... More
