I went to Amsterdam last Monday and didn't know Thermos was closed (their website is still open !) so I had to try the new sauna close to the train station. I cannot say it's bad but it is definitly not as good as Thermos. The new sauna is very small (only one floor), you cannot lock the doors of the cabines (and many have "holes" for other people to see you in action) and it is not as clean as Thermos (where you could find cleaning solutions in the cabines and clean the matress, something you cannot do at the new sauna).

It's about time we have a new gay sauna. Calling all Dutch developers with great eye on business inventions, please bring back Amsterdam's glorious gay scene by creating a new sauna concept! No more customer unfriendly staff and boring, small or dirty venues... we want luxurious FUN.

Ik kan niet wachten tot deze weer open gaat, ik heb het zo totaal gehad met die andere sauna. Alles waar men over klaagde op thermos geldt daar ook, plus het is er veeeeel kleiner, je kan er je kont niet keren.

Good! Let this hellhole die! Rude and incompetent assholes don't deserve any pity just because the place is traditional.

Thank god they closed this place! They lost touch with paying customers and had easy cash all the time. Big demand for gay sauna still there. New customer friendly staff and re-fresh needed.

Sad the sauna has been closed now, I sincerely hope there will be a new owner who will overhaul the whole building before opening again.

In spite of what the current owner is saying (blaming internet and "no demand for a sauna"), there is demand for a gay sauna, but people aren't interested in outdated furniture and a crew that can barely smile or clean the place.

The new owner should start fresh, and hire an all new staff. If he goes with the old staff and simply repaint it it will not work, just look at the club Warehouse which is a glimpse to it's successful predecessor Cockring.

If the new owner wants to hire me

Very strong rumors in town that Thermos is going to close very soon. That explains why Jeroen can't buy a six entries card.

If you still have a six visits card, use it quickly and ask your money back!!!

Offer a subscription for six entries, but there .... "for now not available" !
When will you have new cards ? "No idea"!

Always with the same friendliness for which they are well on reputed !!!

Thermos sauna staff is EXTREEMLY RUDE especially COLIN and KEVIN no customer service experience even though they have been working in thermos apparently ages they act like primitives I think monkeys act smarter than that. The owner Jan is totally not open to suggestions or complaints expect of listening to both sides of a sorry they pull to conclusions.

Ik ga zelf liever naar de 'oude' Thermos sauna dan naar de nieuwere variant. Toegegeven dat Bij Thermos het personeel soms wel wat aardiger tegen de klant mag zijn, ze moeten er tenslotte hun brood mee verdienen. Maar het is er veel ruimer en als je even iets anders wilt doen is er een hele fijn PC. Bij de nieuwe sauna voel ik mij als een haring in een tonnetje. Het is mij iets te klein voor een grote groep geile boys. Ook zijn de consumpties er duurder en mis ik een zonnebank en fitness-ruimte.

I visited Thermos last Sunday and I noticed it was very clean, and I am a clean-freak :) Perfect cabines, it is a huge place and they have got it all; hairdresser/ restaurant, masseur et cetera. I have seen a lot of sauna's because I travel a lot and have to say Thermos is defenitely worth it. See you soon guys!

One of the things I miss, as a Dutch guy who lives in the USA, is the great cruising scene in Amsterdam. One of my favorite playgrounds is Thermos. It's a clean, multiple floor bathhouse with a friendly staff. The sweet bartenders will never let you down when you are in the mood for a chat at the bar. I love the large Turkish steam room, the sauna, and the marble swimming pool to cool down. One of the floors has a restaurant with good comfort food. During my recent visits it was less busy than it used to be in the past.

Been there on a rainy Sunday recently. Very good crowd, mostly mature men. No problem. Still okay to have a good time. Third floor, hardly anyone there. Re-design needed for this floor. Better steam sauna than Nieuwe Zijds. Piss or beer on the floor!?? Don't know but wished it was cleaned.

Why not providing free condoms & lube on each floor? Safe sex zone? Thermos can easily do more to accomodate it.

ik ben hier voor de 4de keer gekomen en ik moet zeggen de eigenaar en rob geweldig personeel en niet te vergeten de geweldige kok Mr. Mick het eten was echt geweldig heerlijk gegeten alles is erg schoon en moet vertellen in 1 woord perfect ik ben ook bij NZ sauna geweest maar dat is echt een tegenvaller. Ik zal zeggen Thermos was en blijft nummer 1 in Amsterdam. Thermos Sauna is the best place to be for gay's if you are vititing Amsterdam go to Thermos clean nice and friendly people and the restaurant is perfect Mr. Mick he wil make excellent dinner. If bean in NZ and trust me Thermos is much better. Enjoy your time in Amsterdam Thermos Sauna number one!!!!

Have fun

Vandaag spontaan weer eens keer hier naar toe gegaan i.v.m. het druilerige regenweer. Eerlijk toegegeven: ondanks de vele kritiek die hieronder vaak voorbij komt; het ziet er WEL netjes uit, de bar is gezellig en het was zeker niet leeg op zondagmiddag, ik schat dat er 50-80 mannen binnenwaren.De nieuwe gloryholehokjes op de derde etage werden inderdaad totaal niet gebruikt, heb daar nooit enige actie waargenomen.
Publiek is inderdaad wel "ouder" dan NZ, veel > 55 en wat aangespoelde toeristen en ondergetekende zelf (ik ben 46).
De sfeer was wel OK op 1 opmerkelijk incident na: terwijl ik net was gaan zitten in de droge sauna werd me ongevraagd door iemand die nieuw binnenkwam gezegd "dat ik heus niet had hoeven wegkijken"( toen hij binnenkwam) en "dat dat helemaal niet nodig is want je ziet er niet uit man". Waarvan akte (?). Ik had deze persoon overigens überhaupt niet zien binnenkomen maar hij voelde zich kennelijk erg afgewezen. Het zit dus nog steeds vol met gefrusteerde nichten daar. Ik had het idee dat er vroeger ( = circa 10-15 geleden) meer sex was dan nu, nu soms wat gepijp in de stoomsauna maar de meeste hokjes boven zijn leeg.

voor onstspanning prima locatie om te relaxen, voor de rest niet te hoge verwachtingen.

I enjoyed being in thermos. I went to thermos for the second time yesterday (friday) and I really enjoyed myself. Of course I came to relax but sex is always welcome. I had sex with 4 guys, swedish, english, Brazilian and Egyptian and I have no complaints.

I do believe there were more older men over 45 or 50 than there were men my age (20-25) but that's expected. For people who don't understand: nowadays you can meet someone online and have sex very easily. There are multiple datingsites or chatrooms. Older men would probably stick with the old school sauna to get some action. And besides that, most people my age would probably not pay to go to a sauna since the internet is so much cheaper. But I do enjoy the real life contact, I'm not shy and I prefer an older guy (mind you, not too old) so I think I will become a regular. And people are talking about not finding anyone hot.. well I did. All four times. But I think you shouldn't have such a high standard. Do you have a six pack, square jaw, pecs and a bubble but and huge dick? No okay then don't ask for perfection. I myself don't have an entirely flaf stomach but I would certainly not call myself fat and I'm not overweight. And I don't look for a perfect person to have sex with. Sure I have my preferences but that's normal. Just don't limit yourself by having so many standards :)

For people who say the staff is rude... well I don't really have any comments. I know they weren't overly nice but still what would you expect? Maybe just sit at the bar for a little while and talk to the barman instead of walking past and asking for a condom and I'm sure he will warm up to you. But I think the staff should realize its common decency to smile or at least acknowledge you customers.

All in all I really enjoyed myself and I do believe it was clean. Except for some cabins but come on if you have sex at least have the decency to clean up your cum and throw away your packages and condoms. That was all and I will be there this friday again and I hope to meet some hot guys again. Btw I went there from 18.00 to 22.00 so in four hours I had sex 4 times. And I know I'm not something special, just a cute face and smile will get you far :)
