    Best value (ever?)
    This isn’t a luxury spa, but it’s a great experience at a bargain basement price. 10 GEL entry for men, 10 for a vigorous body scrub and another 10 for a soap massage. Towel hire 5 GEL if required, bring your flip flops. I was expecting the scrub to really hurt, but it was fine and feels great afterwards - but maybe that’s coz for the first time in my life I have some upper body muscles. The place might not look fancy, but it didn’t seem dirty or disgusting. The full nudity might be confronting for some, in case I’d suggest getting a private room elsewhere. The hot pool is ridiculously hot, so be prepared - my strategy was to stay still so my body cooled the water surrounding it! I’ve now been told there’s also a sauna, so I’ll have to look for that when I go back. A top Tbilisi experience!!!

    A local experience
    It's hard to really say it is a 5 star experience, but you get what you pay for and it is definitely a local experience. Go only with an open mind and remember what it costs and it's more for locals and not tourist. Luxury it is not. I brought my own towel. Would rent one next time. I paid for a scrub, soap, massage and tea. the atmosphere once into the men's area was congenial. Getting in is not warm and welcoming, but no big deal. You pay for the extras in the changing area. I thought it was a hot bath and a a cold bath - the hot is VERY hot and is a large communal "bath" and the cold are showers. Almost everyone was nude. there is a dry sauna that is also very very hot. Take water and shower shoes. Enjoy the experience.

    Great warm experience.
    great experience with sulfur baths. Even though the water was too hot for me , the experience with locals , chatting with them, the massage (reminded me a lot turkish style) and the location, made it a great time when in Tbilisi. Will repeat i back to this amazing country.

    Women don't get the same experience
    A bit different for women. It is cheaper, only 6 lari. But they don't tell you there is no soak pool, only hot showers. I paid 20 lari more for kisi and massage. The kisi was excellent, but the massage lasted all of 20 seconds. Even for 10 lari, it felt disappointing.

    Nice Architecture and great Baths
    Located in the heart of the city, the area has lot of historical buildings, with great view all around. This is the very place where various Sulphur baths, including public and private ones are located. In case of private baths, it is highly recommended that you get a reservation in advance. The baths are neat and clean, and well maintained. You have an option to also select massage and scrub along with the baths. The rates normally range from 100 lari for a couple room to 500 lari for a large group.

1 star out of 5 compared to any hot terms in Europe (like any in Budapest) or Israel (like Hamat Gader).
I went to a public zone, it's really cheap, 10 GEL per hour (but it seems nobody will check and you'd probably won't stay longer)
It's a very small place from the Soviet period, with ~12 sulfur showers, small hot sulfur pool and a tiny sauna.
The manager smoked inside, some people smoked near sauna, the place isn't so clean, no place to sit and relax.
In Budapest you like the authenticity of the place and the vast majority of spings and saunas, in Israel it's quite new and renovated, here it's neither authentic nor renovated.

Hope I can alert others what an absolute disappointment and waste of money my personal experience was. I paid for 1 hr pool, sauna, scrub, and massage options. Did all my resesrch and thought I had made the right choice. Wrong!! I am an experienced traveller and have a good comprehension about culture vs expectations but this was beyond that in my experience. The scrub and massage as to be expected very rushed and impersonal. At one point she without any indication pulled me up from a lying position which has resulted in neck soreness. The attendant entered my room 3 times shouting at me that it was time to leave. Loud in your face shouting and hand clapping along with other gestures. I was well aware of my hour time line and was on top of managing it. I am aware that they notify you at the 10 minute point. Again, I get that. Her behaviour kept escalating. Prior to the end of my full hour, I exited with my shoes in hand. Unpleasant to say the least. I explained the situation at reception to the woman who could communicate in English. Weak apology and out the door you go....

I'll be honest, overall bath is ok and experience of sulfur bath as such is good. However entire experience was spoiled by service and fact that they did not use new-disposable shower sponge (the one they use to scrab you), when i realized that its used and how many people they scrab with this i came to reception and aks them why you dont use new one, they said: because you did not pay for new one, i replied that they didnt even offer, i thought that its already included in price of massage- receptionist did not even said sorry and made up face expression that she wants me out of their place. So service is bad and if you visit, ask them new scrub sponge otherwise you can catch any skin infection.
The rest is ok, very ordinary bath close to public baths in terms of quality

Very unprofessional and bad experience. The public bath might be ok. But taking any service from them they overcharge and I feel they didnt change the scrubber they used because lukd old but when I told the lady she avoided as they don’t speak english. Try avoid this one as its full of scammers. Also unhygenic, they don’t give water or anything and try charge you extra for everything. They charge me 90 on card and took 40 by cash which is way too high for 20 mins. And splitting when I said I wanna pay card is also dodgy, cheating their owners. Bad experience overall

The public bath experience: At the entrance it clearly states 10GEL for entrance, and a further 10 each for a scrub and a massage. So total 30 GEL per person. Reception insisted we paid 20 GEL to share a scrubbing mitt. The chap with the lockers wanted a further 10 each. So total 50GEL per person.

Inside, it’s small. Swimming trunks optional. One hot bath to sit in and one small sauna. Scrubbing and massage was about 3 mins each (locals got about 5 mins each). It really wasn’t very relaxing. Our mitt wasn’t used.

So in conclusion, I’d say go if you are a hard core baths fan. Don’t bother with the scrubbing.

The public bath was simple. 8 Lari to ener. Massage cost 10 Lar or 10 Lari for a scrub. It is a 5 minute process, but enjoyable. We have done baths before so this was a simple experience. Nothing fancy. I am sure there are "Fancy" experiences....but for a few dollars, you can have a nice experience.

We were in the office which is down the stairs and the first door on the left.
I saw a very bad picture - dirty, broken, abandoned, scary. I don’t want anyone to get there. Visited late in the evening - many were drunk and inadequate
Next time I will try to find what is in the picture.

We booked a room for 2 for 110 AMD. Due to traffic we were late for 10 minutes. The receptionist said fully booked. We begged and gave us a room for amd150 more expensive. We got in and waited for towels, a lady to give us a bath but no one came. No receptionist to call. We realized no one was coming and we decided to change to our swimsuit and go to the boiling bath. We were so disappointed. We felt scam!
