Great Gym, Quieter Sauna
“I visited Gym Louvre on my last trip to Paris. Was there on a Saturday afternoon around 5pm. Great gym facilities, which are basically the same number of machines and other gym equipment that you'd find at any "real" gym. So you could go here to work out by itself.
The sauna is downstairs, and was rather quiet during my visit. (About 15 guys in the sauna area, much less than other Paris saunas I'd been to around the same time of day.) Several private rooms, a big room with gloryhole booths (no elevated gloryholes), a dry sauna and steam room, shower areas, and a lounge area with TVs playing.
The guys were mostly fit, probably coming down after a gym workout. But as mentioned, the number of people in the sauna area was fairly small. So if you're only looking for the action part of the sauna experience, I'd suggest other places like IDM or Sun City. But if you like the idea of coming for the gym and then staying for some fun, this might just be the right place for you!“

Just for sexy men
“Location: Excellent. A short distance from the Louvre.
Type of customer:
Be careful because it is not the usual gay sauna. This is actually a real gym, which also provides the SPA area for external customers. The men who train here are, for the most part, in their 40s and in great shape; when they see an interesting tourist coming in, they stop training, they undress and go down to the basement. Everything is very fast, no time is lost; but only if you are physically very pleasant. The very few who dare to enter, even though they are not physically fit, do not stay long, since no one stops training for them. There are no old men, a quality that is not often found in saunas.
Structure: On the ground floor there are lockers to undress and the gym (well equipped). In the basement there is a Turkish bath (quite spacious), a small sauna and a dozen cabins where you can have fun. No swimming pool or Jacuzzi.
Cleanliness: Excellent, also because there are not many people.
Prices: In the standard. We asked for an extra towel to dry ourselves and we didn't have to pay for it.
Advice for customers: If you are not physically attractive, avoid entering, as you would wander without anyone considering you. There is a natural selection that makes the sauna never crowded; only the best remains (or someone who has nothing else to do). Low quantity, but high quality (for this reason, it immediately became one of our favorite saunas in Europe). Bring your slippers.
Advice for managers: The structure is old. It would take a thorough general restructuring. The formula is the winning one (you don't need bigger rooms or more equipment); if you could change location, moving to a more modern building, it would be the best. The lockers are too small, it would be good to change them. You should put clean wipes somewhere to let customers take them when they need them.“

“On your web page was written about special price for Thursday 9 €
And it was also on www.travelgayeurope.com, that the price is 7€ before 9pm
But at the entrance was no special rate and I paid full price.“

I Liked it!
“Sun. 17/04/2016: I used gym and sauna; both places nice and clean. The cabins have cleaning/wipe off/spray materials in the cabins, mattresses are clean (not like at IDM sauna) and no smell. Glory holes room nice, but a little too dark! Lots of good looking guys. Have various subscription options for locals and tourists. Will be back. Try it you will like it.“

Definitely worth a visit
“I didn't use the gym facilities so can't comment on those. When I went the sauna wasn't operating but they still charged 16 Euros. The place is modern and generally clean although some areas smelled like they could do with a wipe down! Fairly mixed and largely under 40s crowd which got busier as the night went on (it was a Saturday so don't know if that was the reason) but it could still have done with a few more chaps to give it more of a buzz.“

Good gym and really good sauna + Many good looking and in-shape guys
“This place has a nice gym on street level to get your workout in and a great sauna area downstairs. There are some of the hottest guys in Paris here and they are friendly as well. I went after 6pm two days in a row during the week and was not disappointed!“

Good equipment & eye candy
“A proper gym for proper work-out with a good range of equipment, friendly helpful staffs. Best time to go is after work 4pm-8pm. A lot of eye candy like the previous reviewer said. “
