My girlfriend and I were trying to find a true sauna in the greater Toronto area that specifically offered authentic Turkish steam baths. We were never able to find one; all of the places that said they had the authentic Turkish baths were tepid rooms with very little steam. And then we found this place: this is the real deal. The Turkish steam bath was full of steam and very hot and refreshing! A truly authentic experience.
Not only that, this sauna also offers a Russian style sauna called a banya that is again very refreshing and hot,with a cool off pool right next to it. There's also another classic type dry sauna that most of us are familiar with. There are a variety of complimentary teas offered to all patrons, which again are a nice touch amidst the relaxing atmosphere.
My girlfriend and I each got robes, towels, a locker with magnetic lock bracelet, and access to all of the saunas and tea for 30 bucks each, which is a great value. There's a little restaurant in there too that makes home-cooked authentic Russian food for good prices.
Overall my experience was great. The staff, which consists of a husband/wife team and their daughter, were very welcoming and helpful. The facilities were clean and easy to navigate. The clientele was respectful. The food was good. I have nothing bad to say about the place.
My only concern is that its location is in the side alley of a commercial plaza, and it has no sign at the front to indicate its presence to passers by. Granted, when my girlfriend and I went there were a lot of people there, but I think more people should know about this place.
