Sailors is great. Relaxed and easy going, nice variety of guys. Not so many “A gays” and plenty of real men. Deducted a star because it closes so early. Even on the weekends. I’m sure even a couple of hours later and you would draw a bigger crowd.

I went to the sauna today to relax and have fun, it turned out to be a terrible sauna, very small people, very narrow shower, the basement is dangerous because you can hit your forehead and it's dark. I generally didn't have a good time, it's a waste time I do not recommend it is not worth going there better go to the waterlooso wasteful money

Possibly the worst sauna you will find in the entire world, with the worst customer service included. Abandon hope all who enter🙈😱

Possibly the dirtiest, smelliest sauna you will find in the entire world, customer service included. Abandon hope all who enter🙈😱

Whilst it is a bit pricey, you have to remember all businesses suffered badly over the last 2 yrs.Often a wide range of ages and diversity, I personally love the jacuzzi and stay in it for ages..have had fun in here and guys and staff always friendly..only downside is not as many guys here as pre covid

This was my first visit at the sauna. The lockers was good. But the showers downstairs were freezing cold and rest of the building was extremely cold. I was not happy at all. The sauna was really small and I nearly got burnt by the hot charcoal which was right near the doorway also I hit my head on the roof as I was about to sit on the second row bench. The steam room was also small. The rest room and private rooms were really nice n big for privacy. They can do with more heating and showers. The second floor had also showers but they weren’t working. The sailors closed on the 26th April this year for maintenance but nothing seemed to change. I was extremely disappointed when I visited the place. It was really quite and not many customers there. I met a few guys they were unhappy with the place and they were expressing their feelings about the place.

A little dated in its decor but good size multi level sauna. Not busy but the guys that were there all had a good playful attitude. A little over priced for what it offers.

tried again 2 months ago.Didnt even make it past the door.As I entered the Italian/Brazilian guy on the door just stood there,no greeting nothing.Asked if it was alright to come in.Still nothing a vague mumbling under his breath so annoyed was i at his arrogance and rudeness I said do you want my money or not? Then he got really rude so I left.I'm suprised that sailors can afford to turn customers away.Awful

I stopped here with my good friend BAT21, we had a delightful time! The towel boys were great! They even went and got us some Whoppers from Burger King!

Hacing been to this sauna in the past I decided to look at the latest review to see if during the lockdown thy have updated this sauna. Size wise its great & location is accessible given I travel from central on london when visiting.I was disappointed to read that sadly the same tired sauna exists, whilst I don't mean to put the hard working guys running it down it could do with a bit of an uplift, some promoting & events to get guys into it on the quieter days like Weds. All other Central saunas I've been to are buzzing on most weekdays & Sailors could be to. Please owner don't turn against my comments & suggest I come at the weekend-some people have to be elsewhere to work & I love to give everyone a chance . I genuinely feel if they were to have a naked day weds all day or a bears only or some themed day guys would flock bringing in more revenue & make it a more popular place. This is a genuine review not a put down or meant as an insult to the hard working guys-i want this sauna to listen & perhaps learn from its patrons.

Great Space - clean and friendly with lots of hot guys of all ages. Lots of effort has been made to make the place comfortable and safe well worth a visit.

I cannot wait for this place to reopen. I always have such a good time there. Its been so long i miss it very much. I dont know what people are complaining about its a good place thats been running for years. It would be cool if it had a small pool or another hot tub but I live near by and cannot complain.

Such a good place! Staff is really nice and helpful.There is a lot of place, several floors and it doesn't feel claustrophobic like other saunas! The private cabin are very spacious as well.The jacuzzi is deep and you can stand inside and have water up to your neck.I've heard that they recently started to open 24hrs during weekends.Very impressed!I went very late on a Friday and still managed to find good fun 😉

This sauna is small, the staff is very nice. There is a nice snack on Fridays: fries, sausages, unfortunately you can't buy beer there. The place is quite clean. There are very few men, and the average age of men much over 45 years, this place should not be called Sailors, but a senior club. I think that these 18 pounds for admission can be better invested in other similar places, which are larger and have more customers and younger cruisers. This is not a place I will come back to.

I haven't visited this sauna for a couple of years. Not much has changed although it seems to be becoming even more dowdy (as can be seen by the gay flag on the roof). They are attempting to smarten the place up as when I was there the basement area was closed for painting.It still has the same facilities, namely a small steam room, sauna and a rather uncomfortable Jacuzzi. The reception and lounge area is quite nice and comfortable and the staff are also very pleasant. Whilst I was there lots of cleaning was taking place.The clients are of mixed ages although the majority are over 40 but there is also a nice ethnic mix. There were about 30 there during the couple of hours I was visiting on a Saturday afternoon.The first floor is divided into various private rooms and there used to be an access to the external roof-garden/smoking area which is now locked. The top floor is divided into small cubicles as well as a large darkroom and the video can also be viewed on this floor, although the seating is very uncomfortable.At £18 I consider that this is an overpriced venue bearing in mind its locality and how difficult it is to travel to the place unless you live in Central, East or South East London. They do still give concessions for the unemployed, under 25's and those with a Freedom Pass which may make it a little less expensive for those fortunates.Probably isn't worth the visit unless you live close by.
