A bit raw, but totally genuine.\r
4 different kinds of heat rooms + ice cold pools + bone cracking massages + bunks to relax and even nap.. be there 90 minutes and come out reborn. It's rough around the edges, but that's

If you really want to sweat and leave feeling rejuvenated this is the place to spend a few hours. Very cool and unique experience and if you like this old world type stuff this is for you.

...it once was. I've going to the baths for over twenty years. Recently I used the ice pool, which used to be filled with ice-cold, clean water. The water was murky, dirty and there were wet towels all over the floor. The food has gone downhill also. I sampled some mushroom-barley soup and it was watery and tasteless. Too bad; it used to be a NYC treasure....

an interesting find in Manhattan, this place has a variety of different steam rooms and saunas, and even an ice cold pool. Very cool place for detoxing. They also offer massages, food and beverages, and other miscellaneous items. I had a great time checking this place out...a very young, hip, and friendly crowd...and I felt awesome when I left. Only $30 for a single visit, they do have discount cards for regular visitors.

Oh my, Shanda darling if I liked girls, you would be mine! I get massage at least weekly and this is one of the few places that I've been a repeat customer to. Definitely worth the money!

I used to love going to this place back in the early 90s. I used to love the cots to rest up in at the end of my session. A lot has changed over the years. The cots have gone and the place just seems to have a more PC theme now. The prices have risen considerably. It's hard to put a finger on exactly what's changed, but it no longer has the same vibe. If you do go, avoid Saturdays as they are very crowded.

Definitely bare bones, not a convential spa treatment but worth a trip. Downstairs is relaxing in terms of the shvitz. Don't go on a Saturday though, way too crowded and full of posers talking way too loudly in the steam rooms about their acting gigs. Once you have sweated out for a good half hour go upstairs and get a massage from Shanda "the girl from New Orleans". I am a massage expert. I have gotten hundreds everywhere from a fancy spa to the local chi gong. This is the best massage I have ever received. I had a horrible pain in my shoulder and she worked out every knot. It was really quite unbelievable. She made no bones about it. As soon as she found the knot and tension she went to work and there was no mercy. It was unbelievable. 3 days later I realized that I felt so strange because I had no pain in my shoulder. For the first time in years. The most amazing thing was that she got rid of years of pain in only HALF AN HOUR and that included a whole body stretch. All in all it is an extremely affordable and effective way to relieve the stresses of city life.

Pros: excellent massage

Cons: none really, it's the Turkish Baths

Went for first time in June 04 and will be returning (I live on the West Coast) Best massage I've ever had. One reviewer is right; it is nothing like a Turkish Hammam, it is ALL Russian Bania. You won't believe how hot the Russian Steam Room actually is, it's brutal. Spend the extra and get the platza. It hurts, but in a good way. The decor is ancient, but the staff is warm and friendly. You'll feel great afterwards.

This is a good place to go for a low cost deep tissue massage and a taste of Russian/Turkish heritage (the various saunas and tubs), but if you are one for high quality pampering then look elsewhere....it is not that kind of place. Every man/woman for him/herself. You will be given the bare essentials and sent on your way to hustle through the crowd of regulars. If you're new beware that you cannot be shy or too afraid to ask questions or you'll never get what you went in for. The simple pleasures will keep you going back for more (convenience all around, easy access to equipment, nonjugdmental crowd, various saunas).

If you've never back-packed through Eastern Europe you can get a great taste at the Russian Turkish Baths. As soon as you enter you'll feel like you've been transformed. From the woman behind the food counter to the old-school style. Great way to spend an evening. Definitely try the authentic Russian food!
