We've been twice to experience the baths.
Once in the establishment, you forget that your on a busy street and you feel secluded.

Fire caused severe damage recently. Hope they rebuild quickly.

Bring your bath robe, slippers, swimsuit and towel so you don't have to pay anything on site. Very affordable if you go early or late ($25/head). I went during a snowstorm, which actually improved the experience in my opinion. The sauna temperatures are just right and the Arctic Bath is cold but not TOO cold where it's unbearable. The chairs in the relaxation rooms are very comfortable and the beds by the fireplace were pretty "romantic" :).

Overall, a very good experience.

We wanted to combine a spa day with a day trip outside of the city on our stay in Montreal. This spa was recommended on several forums online as one of the best ones close to Montreal (1.5-2h driving which is very scenic once you get to the mountains). There is a very cool waiting area with very friendly and helpful staff. There are 2 hot pools that were great (i'd like them to be slightly hotter), 2-3 cold pools (out of which we only ventured into 1, a sauna that smelled fantastic, and a steam room that was quite empty (maybe because it was a bit to the side and people didnt realize it's there). There is also access to the river but that's probably a lot more fun in the summer. The best part of the experience was that everything around was covered with snow, there was the smell of wood burning fireplaces drifting around, and it was quite peaceful and serene (there are no kids allowed) so it felt great to relax and enjoy it all.

The only cons that I can think of are that it gets a bit full in the afternoons on weekends since the ski crowd goes there but since they only let a limited amount of people in at a time it didn't feel crowded. The other problem was that the ground outside of the hot sauna would freeze all the time (it was 7F) despite them scrubbing it off quite frequently - if you're walking barefooted it is very unpleasant.

Tip: if you're going in the winter bring a winter hat so that your head and ears don't get cold while u're sitting in the hot pools. bring flip flops too (or buy them from there).

The Spa ‘Le Finlandais’ is large and clean with different pools and saunas and even a spacious sauna heated with a wood stove.

People enter the sauna in wet bathing suits, which smells. Nobody use towels to sit on the wooden benches, which is highly unhygienic. No warm foot baths, you have to put your feet in the whirlpool, which is unhygienic. Cooling off has to be done in bathing outfit.

Québécois visitors apparently have no idea about Finnish sauna rules. ‘Le Finlandais’ not a Finnish sauna at all, it is a public swimming pool for yuppies.

The Spa is weird mix of quality, Feng Shui and Québécois prudishness. You are expected to speak in a whispering voice. With the vague music that provides a strange hallow atmosphere in ‘Le Finlandais’.

Went there on a friday morning in november. The place was packed. You could barely move and it wasn't relaxing at all. Each area you went to was busy and noisy (their lounge chairs make noise when you move on them and they simply are not comfortable).
The pool/spa area is small and not visually relaxing. People moving in and out of the water while you're trying to relax. And the clientele is very young.
The massage I had was good but unfirtunately for the therapist, I won't go back to that place for one.
