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

Here is my unexpected experience. We are two tourists. My friend and I arrive at the place. We learn that there is a "high level" service, which is cheaper before eight pm. We have arrived ten minutes before eight. The cashier does not speak a word of English. When the last Russian client has entered and when only foreigner tourists... More

Bad price/offer balance: 30 euros each for 2h. One big room with 3 cold baths and just one sauna. Nothing is included. Nice and clean environment.

In case you look for the real Russian experience in Moscow than this is the place to go. Most traditional Banja you could ask for. However the place is a bit run-down, but this is part of making it so lovely as you can literally breath the history of the pace. Also don't go there if you are on a... More
