I visited the sauna three days ago, early afternoon, there were quite a few people, a huge space with many rooms, the pool was cold the water ,very beautiful classic decoration that you don't find in any other sauna,was the biggest I've ever visited, cleanliness, the staff were polite but impersonal, mainly local boys who prefer to hang out among themselves and not with any tourists, different ages, prices relatively affordable if you want to spend some time without the necessary precondition that a game will occur 27 euros go prepared with a condom not recommended if you intend to do something

Very beautiful place ! I’ve never seen such a beautiful sauna in Europe. You can feel the history of the place.It’s also very big ! Lot of place to have fun and wander 😈.Men were also pretty hot. Definitely would return if I come to Wien again.

Guys! I really like this place!Firstly, the staff here are very friendly and helpful. (and hot haha)The design of the place is marvelous, not overstated, modern yet with classic foundations. It absolutely exudes an attractive aura.We've visited at various times, and each time, there have been people of different ages and shapes.The selection and pricing of drinks and food are very good. Additionally, they provide towels, safety stuffs, and different rooms (if you need 😏😉).Various saunas, relaxation areas, a pool, showers, and bathrooms are at your disposal. Plus, the place's "labyrinthine character" adds a touch of magic.I wholeheartedly recommend it if you crave a steamy atmosphere, but you'll enjoy it even if you're more reserved and just want to look around. There are always those up for some play, but if you want to delve deeper, you'll find open guys as well.

By far one of the best saunas in Europe! 25 euros to enter and there was a foam party on Saturday, many beautiful people and it is good to go between 4pm and 10:00 pm, it is open until 2:00 am 😈

so guys I recommend this sauna it is the number 1 in Europe I have been .and tried others in Vienna but I tell you don't go because you will pay for nothing.I would try and they are very dirty and so on..what I found in this sauna is good personal cleanliness and very nice and clean wet dry sauna. they also have a party in the shower. very nice, you won't be sorry. the rest of the saunas in Vienna. DISASTERthe best and cleanest sauna in Europe from my point of view don't go to another sauna in Vienna you will be disappointed. I paid for nothingI can't wait to go back🤗🤗❤️❤️🏳️‍🌈🇩🇰🇩🇰

I have been waiting to visit this historical sauna. Major disappointments during my two day in a row visit. 50 euros spent for nothing.Let's start with Monarch touches in the interior with gold incrustation. Old school European decor. All super clean. It's huge and you can get lost in dark rooms, but who needs that if no action is taken inside, but men keep walking round and round. No passion, just lazy men playing with their thing around and watching movies.As I said, I saw no passion. I can compare with Italian saunas and boy oh boy I have been having fun non stop in one visit. But here it was sooo slow. Maybe it's a local thing. Don't ask about roles, guys get offended and apparently most of the guys refuse to use protection.As I said the topic of being artificial and lazy can be seen at BD*M rooms, that were empty, no one in the swing room for two days in the row, no one at the gl*ry hole rooms,no enthusiasm .Men were either socializing or passively mastu*ating in the most borrong way. There were around 40-50 guys on 25 and 26h of December between 6-11PM and most of them in the age of 35-80, the other half men from Slavic countries. Not worth 50+ euros to be fair. I have to highlight that reception guy with the glasses on is very sweet and welcoming. Yet the one with tattoos and beard laughed and bullied me with the guy at the kitchen right at the reception. Very rude welcome. Saunas are ok, quiet small. I would skip the idea of sauna cr*ising in Vienna, this is the third sauna which is boring.

the workers were not welcoming. They meet like they re gonna beat you! The prices are high. There is no lubricant. Only you can pay it for 50 cent. The area is big but old fashioned. There is a pool but useless as it is so cold.

I simply loved this place. Last Saturday afternoon there was a foam party. It’s been captivating and intriguing! I definitely recommend this place to those who are visiting Vienna and wanna have some spicy and sparkling fun.

although never expected I honestly think this is one of the best gay saunas in Europe (Berlin to east). One of the best is measured based on the sauna's facilities not the guests. There it is all up to how lucky you get.

Beautiful house, like most of the places in Vienna. I have been there in a Friday evening. There was a nude party in one of the playrooms (they have plenty). Dark rooms, private cabins, a nice relaxing spot. Staff is friendly with tourists that don't speak German. I just expected a bigger steam and dry saunas, they're too small and not compatible with size of the place. I think it's complicated to have more than 20 guys in one of these saunas. Anyways, that's a good option to relax among men after a tough day.

I'd recommend the sauna as such. I've been through a lot of saunas in Europe, but I haven't met a bar at the entrance as unassuming a personal. as if I'm harassing the bearded gentleman who was sweetening. also had a problem serving when I ordered a bottle of champagne with a friend. next time I'd rather take my drink. But I have to say again that the bar on the floor below was cool. so I would definitely have the maverick overthink swapping personal for someone interested in the job .prices are higher but acceptable. the size of the sauna needs to be kept to make money.

This sauna has to be on your list of places to visit. We both loved it visited on a Saturday and Sunday. The reception you get is very welcoming and friendly. As soon as you walk in you are amazed at the Elegance of the building. The sauna is very big and more like a large gentleman's club. Very clean throughout. Sauna x 2 and a large steam room, lots of fun to be had here. Unfortunately the pool was empty but this do not spoil the visit. All ages, shapes and sizes makes for an unforgettable experience. Plenty of cabins and areas for fun. The bar area had two sexy men serving you WOW, plenty of seating here and the music is fantastic and changes with the time of day. We both decided to eat in the restaurant 😋 on both days, amazing food. You can tell we both loved this place and give it 5*****

A very unique sauna with historical decor. Very friendly staff, plus all bartenders during my visit are very muscular and hot. Entrance is a bit discrete but luckily photos in other comments helped me confirm the right door to open.

This is the most beautiful sauna in Europe.Oriental and charming decoration with huge rooms for relaxing and fun. You can enjoy a steam bath, a hot sauna or a delicious meal in their nice restaurant.The receptionists and the barman are really polite and you can enjoy your drinks under magical and exotic paintings.I will certainly return!!!

I go to a sauna on every city I visit and this is by far the most fun I’ve had in one! I went on Saturday afternoon/evening and it was great. So many boys, good vibes and fun. It’s also super clean, the place is huge and the decor is wonderful.

This is the first sauna I've been to in Europe where they didn't give me any discount because I'm disabled and diabetic I had to pay full price like everyone else who was there so if you're disabled don't go there because when you show your disability card They will laugh in your face and say that there is nothing for you, you are not a student or someone who can gets a discount.Sad for a city of great culture like Vienna ☹️

This is one of the best Sauna in the world. The receptionist was so nice and welcoming (also very hot). It was spotless and shining. Smells amazing and there was regular cleaning process when I was there. Everyone was so respectful. I had a nice evening there. Bravo! World class!

Let me put a good review.. as standard of sauna is really good. Quality, cleanliness, polite staff. Yes, staff is polite with all ages, hight,weight etc ..so please do not annoying them when totally drunked.Have seen such case as well.Despite all sounas like casino hence you may have fun or not. But its mostly own mood for today and nothing about provided sevice.

Such a beautiful space! I love it! Just already for the decorations it's worth to visit! I went there for the Mixed S3x-Positive Party. Good antmosphere, friendly people, lot's of partying and talking but not so much 'activity', which is not a bad thing of course, as it's optional and more intended as a party. However, I'm curious to see how it is on a regular night and which vibe that brings.

Been in a lot of Saunas. I think this is the best in regards to premises facilities dark room etc (minus for the cold water in the mini swimming pool) However it needs a lot of ppl to make it feel live because it is huge.

For some reason, the person at the kasse, thought it was wonderful that he only takes a taxi, and had no idea how far Wien Hbf, was from the sauna. No baby girl no, it only makes you look ignorant, not as special as in your mind.

Great location, all typical sauna facilities available along with a gym and two bars. It is extremely spacious and a lot of guys indeed visit this location compared to the other saunas I had gone to. I went the last Saturday night and had some sweet fun. Would definitely recommend taking the weekend ticket if you are there in the city, I regret not doing so.

I went as a solo travelling tourist after good reviews on some other sites. It certainly didn’t disappoint.The front door man and bartenders were all super friendly and talked to their customers, the sauna itself is well maintained and clean and is a maze that one gets happily lost in.It wasn’t the busiest of nights, but was still fun with lots of like minded individuals come to relax in the sauna or do other activities.When I visit Vienna again I will most certainly be coming here again!

Went with my boyfriend together. The sauna is pretty awesome. It is gigantic and is really beautiful decorated. It is so big you get literally lost a couple of times before you can actually understand what is where 😅. We went a Tuesday so naturally we didn't expected to be that much happening. (Eventhough there were people from different ages). That didnt stoped us from having a really amaizing time together. It all started with a massage which was just AMAIZING we can only recommend Vasco was the name of the worker that did it and it was just really an amizing experience. Then we enjoyed the oder rooms pool , turkish bad, saunas, fetish room etc. Etc. Staff was super friendly. I can only imagine how the place gets on the weekends. Recommended.

I was here a Saturday in February and I loved it. It was my first time so I did not have any big expectations, but it was much better than I thought. The place is huge, has several saunas, play area,a bar with music and best of all a foam party! I would recommend to come by time 17-18, it gets empty by 21..
