  1. Impressed!

    “Small but very friendly. I try and visit Sauna's as I travel a lot. This one has been in business for many years (I heard) and it's well run. About 12 guys came and went during my three hour stay there. Clean and some very nice pictures of hot guys hanging around the place. I'll be going again next time I'm I. Birmingham. Give it a go. Hope you have as much fun as I did.“

  3. Haven't been for a few years - lovely place now!

    “Yes, it's a small venue (converted terraced house) but when you get inside its very friendly. Easy parking outside on main road or the nearby side road. Nice surprise that it is still only £10 to get in. Past reception you're into a coffee area (someone makes lovely cakes there!) then into locker room. Downstairs the basement has a large screen tv room with comfortable seating and two cabins. Back upstairs, through locker room and you reach sauna cabin seats about 8. Past the sauna cabin are the showers then the steam room (again seats about 8). Upstairs is a large tv room with plenty of padded seating to sit or lay down. There's two more private cabins, a large gym with upright sunbed, toilets and finally a room at the back with a sling and other equipment. I'm really impressed with how the facilities have improved. All very clean. All the space is used thoughtfully. There were about 15 guys when I went in at 12:00. I left around 18:00 and though it had quietened a bit, it was still fun. Go and see for yourself. If they've been going since 1982 they MUST be doing it right. “

  4. Still great!

    “Went yesterday after a break of about 12 months living in Spain. Yes, it's a small club but the place is spotless, the staff are friendly and I've never failed to 'make new friends' there. Still only a tenner to get in - that's much more realistic than the extortionate prices the Greenhouse and Unit 2 charge. I like the fach that it's less than 5 minutes of Spaghetti Junction and you can easily park on the main or side road.“

  5. 'Amsterdam citizen'

    “I am going to visit Birmingham from Sep-6-Sep 9 and I am planning to visit the Birmingham sauna's I am quite confused about the pro and contra's against this sauna and belief that when UK citizens don't come to their satisfaction they start writing frustrating messages.“

    “Should get an award for dirtiest most unhygienic sauna in Europe.“

    • Brian - should have gone to Specsavers!

      “Your review is RUBBISH. I frequently go to Spartan and have done since it opened in 1982. It's VERY clean, friendly staff and customers. I know many guys who, like me, are regular visitors and will completely disagree with your very sweeping statement. All areas are cleaned frequently throughout the day, replacement clean towels are free (unlike many other gay saunas who charge) and the decor, carpets and fittings are all very clean and in full working order. It's a great place to visit - especially for first-timers who might feel a little unsure about what a gay sauna/health club is like. Try it - like I did and you won't be disappointed. Birminghams first and friendliest gay sauna that's less than 5 minutes from Spaghetti Junction.“

    • Well worth a visit. Birmingham's first and friendliest.

      “Less than 5 minutes from Spaghetti Junction (A38M). Busiest between 12:00-18:00 but generally stays open until around 19:30-20:00 depending on visitors. Vince is the Manager - a nice, friendly guy who runs the place. A great mix of guys frequently visit. No need to take anything with you except a smile and friendly attitude. Clean and very nicely decorated. If it's your first time at a gay/bisexual man's sauna, you couldn't have picked a better place that's very reasonably priced.

  11. Give Spartan a Try

    “A very convenient and easily accessible sauna close to M5 and M6. Handy to central Birmingham. A friendly crowd and staff ensure a warm welcome. Great value and a varied clientele make a visit to Spartan a must. Street parking is readily available an added bonus. Never yet failed to have an entertaining and interesting time. Please give it a try and experience the gay delights of Erdington.“

    “Lovely little sauna. Friendly and fun. Sometimes a bit quiet but at other times plenty of hot action. Just repainted and showers now better. Still a bit rough around the edges but it's part of the charm. Great value.“

  15. Nice, but needs a good clean

    “Staff are nice. But yes the place needs a good clean. Also wish they had a swing bed.

    Clientele that go are around 35 plus. All the guys I've met there are friendly.
    As I love black guys u do get some that come in pity there's no more shall be there on Sunday 26 Feb 2017 c u then guys mmmmm“

    Allen on 25-Feb-2017 | Reply Problem with this review?

    • Updated. Refurbished, very clean and nice mix of guys.

      “Guys from 20+ attend. Very popular between 12:00-18:00. Nice little coffee bar that serves snacks and replacement clea,pen, dry towels are free (unlike many other gay saunas who charge!)
      I recommend it - especially if you're a first-timer.“

  16. Nice friendly introduction

    “I plucked up courage and joined the sauna world for the first time. Pleasantly surprised a very positive experience . It went in the early evening /late afternoon and it was not very busy. This suited my needs for a gentle introduction. Enjoyed it so much I have been back twice in as many days. A really good crowd.“

    • Really useful review

      “This is a real gem, in an unexpected location. Staff and customers really friendly. I have never failed to find action and have always left happy. Prices are reasonable and a four-visit ticket at a reduced price is available. Well worth a try.“

  17. Happy Barry

    “Staff very helpful and welcoming, nothing is to much trouble. Venue has been painted since I last came, nice and bright. Variety of ages so something for all. I had a great time so will be a regular from now on. Thanks spartan “

  18. Great Staff But Cleanliness A Big Issue!

    “The staff in this sauna are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. I cannot fault the staff but I did have huge problems with the cleanliness of the place. Sorry, but this place was filthy. It needs a thorough clean. The grim is a real no, no for me.
    This place hasn't been cleaned for years. The lockers in particular are very filthy. Luckily I had my anti bacterial wipes with me. The grim on the wipes totallly shocked me! The carpets haven't been shampooed for years. In short this place isn't for you if you like your saunas spotless.
    Come on owners of Spartan, you are really nice people but your 'housekeeping' skills are appalling. Come on hire some professional cleaners and spruce this place up. It's disgusting. I won't be coming back. Clothes went straight in the wash as soon as I got home.“

    • This review is cruel and completely untrue.

      “Visit the place and judge for yourself. Recently redecorated ALL facilities are VERY clean and everything works perfectly well. I have been going since 1982 when it opened and would NEVER have said the place was dirty. Never was and never will be. The manager (Vince) does a great job keeping the place clean, tidy and friendly.“
