I went there yesterday just before 7pm , exit office . I like guys in suits and I thought that going in between 6 and 8pm would be ideal. Where to start ? There is so much to write !
I'll start with the positives ( there are some ) ;-)
The place is well arranged . Cabins to choose from, tv screens, multi-level , full of corners , a small sauna in the background etc. ..
It is clean ( you'll understand why by reading the following ) .
The reception . I found it deplorable. When I arrived the man behind the bar looked bored in front of his computer screen. Unfortunately , I asked him the same question twice because her first answer was not very clear and he answered in an annoyed look , "As I 've already said ..." . I thought, " Oh, not cool boy . It starts badly . " The typical style of arrogant and dismissive gay you can see in the Marais.
Price. € 15 This is the price of a genuine sauna ( But it is not a "real" sauna) .
The Bar: For the price I got only a small tumbler of whiskey. I think it looks a bit stingy though ...
The crowd : Below the minimum. The place is kept clean. There is nobody to mess ! When I was there there were only 5 /6 people . I forced myself to wait 8pm to go in case there would be a new arrival in the meantime but nothing.
After this disappointment and this scam ( let's write ) I went to a brothel in the Marais where I know one server . I told him my story . He looked at me and smiled with an air of not surprised , saying he had heard that Steel did not work hard.
Result , I spent € 15 to drink half a glass of whiskey making me bawl renter before me with tail between legs. I do not give them two years before closing up shop (I'm wide). If you go, I wish you a better experience than me.

This place has degraded a lot in the last few years. I went there after the Papa party, and on Sunday night. It was quite empty on both occasions. It's extremely expensive too: all drinks cost 10 euro each. However, since I like those kind of dirty places, I will go back and hope to find some more and sexier guys.

This place is huge and... empty. I think there are about 300 lockers. I visited on Friday night, until 6 in the morning, and there were something like 30-40 people I went back on Monday afternoon, around 4 PM, and there were some more people, but still quite empty. The showers look dirty, but that's probably because of the dark colours. The nice thing is that 2 drinks are included in the price. The worst thing is the television room upstairs, with the ugliest brown leather sofas from your grandmother's attic. There are maybe ten of those, with several people sleeping on them, and others watching movies dubbed in French. Get rid of the sofas and the movies!
A message to everybody: stop using dating apps and go back to these saunas!

a éviter absolument. Accueil exécrable et puant, clientèle quasi déserte. Non vraiment rien .

I went there Saturday 15 March. Compared to a few years ago it was quite empty and there was not much action going on. Too bad because the place is not bad. It's very large, with nice open showers, and a large steam room. The problem nowadays is that people use dating apps on their smartphone, so they don't spend their money to go to a sauna.
