The staff is extremely unfriendly. The only good thing about this sauna is that it is big. First, you have to pay cash, and if you don’t have the local currency, you will pay more than you should; second, that place is empty. If you go for the sauna, you'd better go to another place because there’s only one sauna, and you won’t find fun there, only empty play areas. I won’t recommend this place to anyone. Better use your money for something more fun.

I went to this sauna with a friend of mine and it was full.. First time I saw queue at the door in a sauna. The bartender Richard was amazing. Great service and friendly. Everything went very well for us there that night. Thank you guys.

Saturday evening unfolded at 6 pm in a delightful setting. The receptionist was remarkably pleasant, exuding warmth and friendliness. The sauna boasted a congenial atmosphere with a diverse and attractive crowd. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my time.

I had the opportunity to visit Prague on the night of November 9th and decided to explore the city's most renowned sauna. However, my experience was quite negative and did not meet my expectations. The place seemed stuck in the 80s, with a depressing and unwelcoming atmosphere. Additionally, the unpleasant smell of the wooden sauna was unbearable, while the dark Turkish bath generated some fear and disgust.During my visit, I noticed that the place was empty, with only adult men and two young individuals at the reception.Unfortunately, one of them (Peter) was extremely rude, barely paying attention due to constant chatting and displaying a curt attitude when answering any questions. I even had to go out to withdraw cash from an ATM since they didn't accept credit cards (possibly to evade taxes).The receptionist, who provided unpleasant service, seemed particularly unprofessional. On the other hand, another employee, whose name I didn't mention and who, by the way, was very attractive, he left the bar and treated me well in one of the saunas 🤤😅 (it was the only redeeming part of my visit). It is incomprehensible how a place like this can be approved by health authorities, considering the unpleasant and unbearable smell of the wooden sauna. Furthermore, the wooden floor gave me an electric shock on my foot, which made me immediately leave the place. But the worst was yet to come. 😡😡😡After sharing my experience in a Google review, I received a message on my personal INSTAGRAM account the next day from Peter, the receptionist! How was it possible for this individual to take the trouble to find my personal Instagram account and respond to my review?This worried me greatly, as if he could find my Instagram, he could also potentially use my information to harm me. As a precaution, I had to change my account to private, delete my comment, and replace it with a 5-star review.I find it unacceptable for these kinds of situations to occur. Instead, I would advise you to avoid visiting this sauna. Additionally, the beer is excessively expensive, and the entrance leaves much to be desired.During my visit to Prague, the bad experience in the sauna caused me so much fear, especially since it was my first time in Eastern Europe, and the discomfort led me to seek refuge in my hotel for 2 days and limit my activities outside because I was traveling alone . It was truly disappointing that such a negative incident spoiled my stay in this beautiful city.

I visited this place for a foam party on Friday. And I've been there from 22:00 to almost 2:00. I had read some bad reviews, so I was cautious, but it turned out to be a great night.There were around 40 people, diverse in terms of age and physique, mostly ranging from their late 20s to late 40s. People here were generally less playful compared to other places I've been to, but if you received a signal, they didn't hesitate in my opinion.I found myself with limited places to chill upstairs, like the couches. The receptionist didn't seem very welcoming, but nothing out of the ordinary.I had a few hookups, and one of them was amazing. The steam room was a bit darker than I would prefer, but it was acceptable. The Finnish sauna was way too hot for me; I could barely survive for 3 minutes. However, the foam room and adjacent labyrinth were good and made mingling easier.

This is one of the worst saunas I've visited. When we arrived, we asked if it was crowded, and the rude guy behind the counter said yes. However, when we entered, there were about 6 people, and it felt like a retirement home. I understand they need to maintain their business, but it's very disappointing to deceive customers. They could have easily said it wasn't crowded. I definitely don't recommend it. Don’t go there unless you want to waste your money or you’re into oldies. Doesn’t even deserve one star!

Cash only!It depends what you wish for. Regarding the sauna itself, it is huge and clean. There is a regular sauna, hot steam sauna, not-so-hot steam sauna with a maze, and a place for foam party. There is no jacuzzi. There is a large U-shaped bar, but no draft beer, only bottled or canned. Large area for private play downstairs.Crowd tends to be younger and handsomer, but not very talkative and playful. Lots of foreigners.

I have seen negative reviews. So.. usual story.Visited that place twice during my trip to Prague.need to understand:-Thats not 5 star hotel with Spa. Thats gay sauna where we have a s..x and rest activity. It cannot be clean and tidy even bcs we are playing there.- Entrance cost is ok. Lets keep in mind Germany /Austria/Spain..entrance prices to saunas. Cheaper is handj.. only- Staff. Regular friendly staff. Just doing their job.im about 50

old fashioned sauna as well as the customers are all old. It's not worth throwing 450+50 (for slippers) ckr . Too expensive. Employer unfriendly. Waste of money

I've been there on a Sunday afternoon, for the "naked party". Arrived around 3:30 and left aound 7:00. No towel this day, so you have to stay naked all the time. It was quiet, besides, some guys just walked around to watch what the others were doing. The saunas and relaxing spots were okay. Cabins available for privacy downstairs with no extra fees. I haven't tried the bar because it was my last day and I didn't have enough cash. Yes, they don't accept credit or debit cards there, only cash. I would give them 4 stars if credit cards were accepted. I suggest they rise the entry fee and accept cards, it is a very turistic area. Anyways, Prague is a nice and beautiful city, but gay life there seems to be almost dead.

Really enjoyed my time there. Went on a Friday around 6 PM and the place was already packed. Around 7 PM the foam party started and even more guys arrived. All ages and types were present and I had lots of fun.The staff was friendly and the place clean. The sauna is also quite big.You can only pay in cash so bring some CZK.

Totally agree with negative feedbacks above. Everything is said before. I only want to say that usually places like this don't survive, but because of the location this one attracts new tourists who naively expect to see guys from belami studio.

the sauna is certainly the best in Prague. we really liked this sauna. good sauna and clean. I don't understand. why there are some bad reviews. probably a competitor from other saunas. we were there ourselves, really enjoyed it. I recommend paying money in crowns. a big difference in the exchange rate in euros, almost 2 times. we can withdraw kronn from ATM and pay anyway

The sauna is not good! Sometimes there are many people, the only unpleasant. The sauna is small, no jacuzzi, and when it's full of only old and ugly people it's just awful. It wasn't like that before. You can neither relax nor have fun. There are very few cabins and they are not regularly cleaned and it gets nasty very quickly...

Clean, modern, good service. But the massage therapist surprises - every day between sessions he goes to cruise places, he treats guests very arrogantly. Although usually personnel are not supposed to roam the booths and dark rooms.It's strange that owners couldn't explain it to him.

The largest and most centrally located sauna in Prague. Staff was friendly even with limited English. We went twice, once on a Thursday when it was quiet but still a few guys with fun to be had. It can feel empty because of its size (especially the cabins downstairs). Apparently saunas in Prague are busiest after work to early evening (5pm-8pm). The front desk guy/bartender told us to come earlier on Friday before the foam party started and he was right. Lots of guys around 7pm-9pm with lots of fun to be had. Foam is limited to one room but it gets everywhere lol. If you've never been to one of these before, it can get slippery and when the foam machine kicks in it can reach 8 feet. Several guys including myself almost suffocated on the foam. It's scary and funny at the same time. Just leave the foam room for a bit until it lowers again. My only complaints would be that the steam room does get very hot so it gets hard to stay inside, slippers should be included with cover (especially foam night), and locals seem to only stick to other locals, while the tourists are more open-minded and adventurous.

A very cozy sauna nearby the historic centre of Prague. I went there several times during the Pride week. Quite busy during all the days especially on Friday and Saturday. Guys mostly between 20-50 y/o. I particularly liked the steamroom, which was optimally dark, promoting relaxation and imagination to higher levels. I also enjoyed the cinema room and the relaxation cabins downstairs. The staff was very friendly. Highly recommend!

One of the worst Sauna’s I have been to. You can’t actually see in the steam rooms. They are that dark. I have never felt scared in a sauna before coming to this one. A couple of times I ran scared someone was behind me like a scary movie. Other than that no jacuzzi. I went on a Thursday evening and it was dead with 5 guys. I left shortly after and I overhead the staff try to make it better by telling the guest in front of me “sorry. It gets better Friday”. Which I don’t believe. But they could have told us that at the entrance when I originally asked when it was a good time to come. He said “I don’t know” before taking my cash. Also, cash only which doesn’t help the situation.Add some lights to the saunas, accept card and you may be fine Babylonia.

Certainly a favorite sauna of mine anywhere in the world. Have been countless times and any time I go to Prague I go to Babylonia nearly every night. The staff is very professional and discrete, it’s in a good location, and I love the complete layout of the place, entering through the locker room, then passing through the bar, then descending down a dark, steamy labyrinth full of great looking guys. It really is a fabulous sauna and you’ll have a lot of fun. The only thing that could possibly make Babylonia better is having a jacuzzi.

+Friendly staff, clean areas.+big cruising area.- you can't borrow any slips, so if you are a tourist you will be walking barefoot.- there is a steam room, and a sauna. And thats all. After an hour it starts to get boring.

Guy at the door fooled me with payment . It was 350czk and he said I had to pay 17 euros. Coming out I checked and the equivalent was less that less than 14 euros. Also the whole attitude was very snobbish . The facilities were ok, but not like major saunas in other cities. Will not go again.

Super clean, nice people, the steam rooms could use a bit more light but overall great place. Can't figure out the negative reviews as there was nothing wrong with this place.

14th July 2019 - Sunday afternoon 2-4pm. 6 people here in that whole time. The place is nice and modern, and really clean. Staff are friendly enough. Just wish there were more guys in their 30s & 20s coming. 🙁

I just left that place and I would say, “Better ignore some of the negative comments that some people wrote”. It’s a big place where you can relax while having a drink at the bar, watching a film or whenever you want to have a break at both steam rooms or dry sauna. There are some cabins too for a nap during your holidays in the capital or to have fun. Moreover you will meet local and international people, so enjoy your visit at that place.
