About Banya Alekseeva

"A visit to Alekseev's Baths is definitely worth a visit. The palace style in the interior is striking in its magnificence. Everything is thought out to the smallest detail. The staff, having learned that we were here for the first time, told in detail and showed where everything was. Comfortable places to stay. Spacious soapy, large Russian steam room. There is a swimming pool with hydromassage, a hot tub with ice water, several dousing devices. For lovers of soft steam, there is also a hamam. The service Tasty steam should be noted separately. By ringing the bell, everyone was invited to the steam room, filled with aromas of herbs. In complete silence, the bathhouse attendants began fanning us with a fan. This is such a delight!" - Trip Advisor Review
