  1. Horrible place

    “An old dirty sauna down a dark side street. Smelly and dirty, broken furniture. Disgusting jacuzzi full of hairs. Overcharged by owner and phone stolen from locker. Only 3 guys inside, all older 50-70 years.“

  2. Arrogancy

    “Guys are full of themselves. Arrogant. Ok you are hot and you are picky but no need to be a brick! Maybe it's me maybe just mine experience. The place is nice. Stuff is nice. Tried that jacuzzi. I did put it in once, just wish I was not alone for jacuzzi. Good value for the money.“

  4. It is a perfect meeting spot for gay visiter of the city

    I visited the sauna for 5 days, or rather, I lived in the apartment. I can recommend that to every visitor. The location is perfect, central and in the middle of the party area of ​​Athens. Even if not everything is perfect, the sauna is a magnet for nice people from all over the world. The apartments are very large, clean and equipped with every comfort.
    The sauna is well attended but due to the size of the sauna not at any time filled, as some like it. There are cold and hot drinks at reasonable prices. Many write that the sauna is not clean. I can not confirm. Some places are used and aged but the entire sauna, towels, shoes absolutely hygienic. I do not need Jakuzzi in such places, because you can not rely on other visitors ... But the operator can not change that, even if the water is changed daily and the best filters are installed. For me, there were plenty of other ways to get in touch with nice people. What I did not find are Callboys - I met nice and attractive staff - but not for sale.
    For sure, I would like to return to this sauna at the next visit to Athens.“

  5. I dont like it.

    “Old sauna. The saunas are very dirty with broken seats. Thumbnails constructions ready to fall. Dirty jacuzzi. Is little more people Friday night and most of the days is empty. I didn't see any most grown saunas as they describe on the internet. I didn't see any of the best sauna in town. Wasting time and money.“

  7. The Staff were very pleasant and helpful

    “I found the facility tiring going up and down the stairs because the elevator was not working properly and it really needs some coaches it’s starting to wear out maybe it was a bad night but something strange I got Weird vibes“

  8. horrible

    “I was there a couple of days ago, the steam room was not working, the maze was closed. the stairs from one floor to the next are never ending, there were 3 old men, the smell of humidity was unbearable and the place overall is incredibly dirty ... Never again“

  9. Smiliar to NYC bathhouses in th 70's

    “I am a Greek/American and live between Greece and New York, like I like this bathhouse, clean, big and cute guys from everywhere, the darkroom ( no towels) is great. The sauna can be cranked up and a bigger hot tub would be nice. When in Greece and want to get wet, have fun and check out hot men this is a personal fav (I haven't been to the others).“

    Good place.
    I am 42.“

  11. Nothing crazy

    “Old sauna. Sauna steam room not to hot. Jacuzzi is cold. Very dirty. No people the time I went 7pm. Is horrible.Look like escort sauna with old man. No thanks.“

  12. It's alright

    “Nice place. The dry saunas are working well (for me, as long as the Sauna is working, I'm fine with the place). I like the concept of the playing area in the basement in which you have to go inside totally naked. The crowd is mix and the price is average. The staff were helpful during my two visits. I had a good time so I'm satisfied.“

  13. Old dirty sauna

    “The truth is it is an old dirty sauna, but there is little choice in Athens. Yes, the staff overcharge and rip you off, but this is usual for Greece and especially gay venues. The sauna is large, over 4 floors. Mostly older guys inside (50 plus) and okay if you have no standards or are looking for money guys.“

  14. COOL!

    “Nothing wrong with the place. Rather lots going for it. Why the bad press? Was there many times in October. Staff very nice and friendly, clean with good facilities. Nice massage by a cutie from Romania. Halloween show was nice and had no probs with removing my towel for the naked entrance in the basement. Nice crowd. Would definitely visit if in Athens. Thanks A Sauna for making us feel comfy and welcome. Proud to be gay!“

    • Fake review

      “The above is not a genuine review of an experience at the sauna. It is a promotion posted by the owners.“

      • Totally true

        “Actually it happens that I am one of the people from this photo. And I totally agree with the review above! We had great time and i visit this sauna every time i visit athens since then. So mister Chris I have no idea where your info come from but you are very wrong.“

  17. better than expected

    “I visited the sauna for the first time last Saturday evening. I had read some of the comments here and was a bit hesitant about what I would experience. I don't understand where these negative comments come from. The place was better than expected, many areas and facilities, lots of customers, friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Good value for money. I will visit again for sure.“

  18. Empty - no action

    “I visit on holidays from Asia. Sunday afternoon, empty and no action. 3 guys in the entire sauna! Very sad and depressing, cold and bit smelly. Lots of money guys on first floor you have to walk past and they hassle you to pay for massage but not my thing. Better try another place!“

    Hui on 11-Nov-2018 | Reply Problem with this review?

  19. Disappointed

    “I come here during the weekend. The area is not safe, lots of pickpockets at the bus stop outside. The sauna is large but nothing like saunas in Germany or Paris. It is old and rotten. No free condoms. Only money guys at the bar. Only 4 guys inside, all older guys. The receptionist showed me around but tricked me into paying extra for entry.“

    Mike on 05-Nov-2018 | Reply Problem with this review?

  20. Nice place

    “The sauna staff welcomed me with a patient explanation of how things work, and a quick tour to the shower area. I was there around 9:45pm to 10:45pm, and activity was a bit slow/sparse. The pace seemed to pick up when I was leaving - perhaps the crowd come in later. Condoms and lubricant sachets are bought per piece from the counter. Good variety of areas and equipment. Clean and neat. Toilets do not seem to be equipped for douching.“

  21. Horrible - dirty and empty

    “Visited Alexander Sauna Athens. A horrible place, dirty, empty and a cheating receptionist. It down a dark back street and it doesn't feel safe. The guy on reception was very rude, angry and ripped me off over the entry price by saying it was a special party day. Lots of reviews on here mention being overcharged and it must be a common at Alexander Sauna. It is large but very dirty and unclean. Only 2 guys inside. Money guys in the bar area. Not worth going.“

  22. The best sauna in Athens

  23. Old dirty sauna

    “Visited Alexander Sauna on Friday afternoon. It is far from the centre and in a run down area that isn't safe. The receptionist was rude and aggressive and overcharged me for entrance. It is a large building but empty. Only 3 guys inside, other guys money guys. The few guys there were 60plus. The steam room is dirty and smelly with brown stains on the seats. Not a good experience.“

  25. Awful dirty sauna

    “Visited Alexander Sauna on Saturday afternoon, only 3 guys inside, other guys money guys. Staff very rude and I was overcharged for entry. The sauna is large but very dirty and smelly. Steam room not working. No action, just hasle from money guys. On exit, the receptionist tried to charge me 5euro for drinks I did not have.“

  26. Very good facility

  27. Dirty and old

    “Visited Alexander Sauna during a gay weekend in Athens. It is easy to find and close to the bars in Gazing gay village. The guy on reception was very rude, angry and ripped me off over the entry price by saying I had to buy membership. The sauna is large but very dirty and unclean. Only 3 guys inside, all 50 plus. 2 money guys in the bar area, very cute but not my thing.“

  28. Good expereince

    “After reading some of the negative reviews on here, i thought it was a different sauna than the one i had visited. I visited twice at the weekend at it was good fun, hospitable staff, plenty of guys and entertainment. Stairs are a challenge !! Fully recommend.“

  29. Large, cold and dirty

    “This is the biggest sauna in Athens but no guys go there anymore. Visited twice and both times no more than 5 guys inside. The rest money guys. No action, cold and dirty. Like other reviews, guy on reception is rude and overcharged for entry and drinks.“

  31. Large but empty

    “A large sauna on the outskirts of Athens. Visited on a Sunday afternoon and I was very disappointed. I was overcharged for entry by the guy on reception and he was very unfriendly and rude. The area is large but only 4 guys in there and the rest were guys who pester you for money. It's dirty and no action.“

  32. Bad experience

    “It is an old smelly sauna. Friday evening it was empty, only 2 genuine customers and the rest money guys trying to get money from the few guys in there. My wallet was stolen from the locker, the staff kept making excuses and wouldn't help. “

    Neil on 16-Mar-2018 | Reply Problem with this review?

  33. Huge gay bath house

    “Fun gay sex club. They had a drag show, and shower show (no sex) on Thursday about midnight. After the show most guys left.

    Multiple floors. Club is pretty clean. Entrance fee comes with a towel, locker, and slippers. The day I went it was 15€ but I think it changes. Staff is friendly. Top floor was closed when I went.

    Typical gay sauna club crowd. Including guys watching the show there were about 40 guys there.“

  34. Friday evening... but

    “Even if on grindr all Greek guys told me is full during night... there are a few of people, and spend all time going around, around and around....

    Not a lot of action.. The sauna was very beautiful and clean... but if u'll go here you will come back home horny.“

  36. A London visitor to Athens.

    “Went on Wednesday - so good returned again on Thursday! Clean, good facilities, friendly staff. Was shown around on Weds - when leaving on Thursday, manager invited me to join their carnival party in street outside sauna. Gave me free wine and food! I am older guy, but experienced a warm welcome with no hint of ageism. Crowd all ages. Thanks to staff! Will go again next time.“

  37. Great place

    “Facilities were clean and functional.
    They have a nice Jaccuzzi, a steam room with a labyrinth.
    The staff is friendly and the public was fine on the Sunday evening I was there.
    The price is fair for the infrestructure they have inside. It's worth the money!

    P.S. - Don't forget to take your own condoms because at the reception, they charge 50 cents for each one!“

  41. Athen's #1 gay sauna

    “This is, in fact, Athen's most famous gay sauna, with multiple floors, though the place seemed more like a cruise club. Staff were friendly. Beware of hustlers asking you for money.. Would love to go again when there's a special event.“
