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

We went to check out this banja last week. Initially we wanted to visit the more luxeruous part, which was closed for renovation. So we went to the second grade banja, which was great. As it turns out, the quality of the steam is actually better there This a genuine russian experience not to be missed when visiting Moscow!

I was excited to try out the baths but was disappointed because I felt my lack of Russian kept me from fully enjoying it. A nice women that spoke some English introduced me to where to sit and a short tour of the sauna and washroom. But then she disappeared. I saw other women enjoying teas and salads but I... More

I opted for the 1st class experience my last morning in Moscow. The pictures I had seen may be for the VIP area only- not sure- but it didn't matter, as I just wanted to be in a banya for the first time and relax. My limited Russian did prove useful, and I brought my own sandals to avoid paying... More
