I've been going to Sanduny for about 5 years and live a short stroll so it is super convenient. Just before Christmas, a mate and I went for banya at around 10am one Saturday morning. Took ticket and went downstairs. Waited 8mins for a place to become available. Nuded up, ordered a beer and went for steam. Being cleaned (it... More

I went with a friend who has been living in Moscow for many years and the whole experience has been fantastic. It's a must do as even though the steam is VERY hot, the dip in freezing water and the swim in the nice pool is indeed relaxing. I would definitely come back.

First off you can't be body conscious and have to be open-minded to indulge here. A little rudimentary Russian helps but all the services are offered in an English menu. To cut costs bring you own spa gear. If you aren't into getting caressed by birch leaves (I wasn't. Go for the naked most - scrub). I spent 2700 rubles-... More

This place is gold!!! The staff were really friendly.. and tryed there hardest to help me and my cousin to properly experience the sauna and bathing room. .. the place has been running since 1808 so it is a must if you are in moscow and looking to try an old tradition!!!

I was taken here by a russian friend.This is essential to enjoy completely the whole experience. The combination of the 'bath', food and drink, and talk is a winning combination for a true russian experience. The all purpose is to relax and socialize. The sauna will be very hot for non russian but then the cold dive on the pool... More

First off, I am quite good at reading maps and finding my way around a foreign city, however this place was absolutely the most difficult place to find and then find the actual entrance! Once I got through the door, I was lost at how to pay. But luckily a very kind woman who spoke English explained to me where... More

Yes the perfect few hours escape. However be prepared! We arrived early, the men's and women's are next to each other with separate entrances. Walked into and there was the menu list in English so no worries. We decided to go for the VIP room as we had had an arduous holiday and needed some pampering. You pay for you... More

For men only, but also for men a must-try: the real Russian sauna experience. You will get spanked with branches after the saune, to open the skin. After the sauna and the bath after, Sanduny offers a great meal. Try it with Russian friends!

He spoke good english and some of the waiters speak english (one was... More

My daughter, 11, and I decided to try out Sanduny. After quite a challenge finding it, we made our way to the women's side. Assured twice by locals that it's "the best," I was dissapointed. At entry we picked the fisr level and not VIP (this may be where we went wrong.) For 1500 rubles for me and 300 for... More
