Probably the best sauna in Geneva
I always avoided this place because it is mixed, but eventually decided to try it. Went there on a Thursday night, but it was quite busy. 3 or 4 women there, who were obviously prostitutes (in spite of the "no prostitution" notices), but most guys were just ignoring them. Good mix of ages / types of guys and more action than I have seen in any other Geneva sauna.

One thing, Swiss men are shy, so almost all the action takes place in the (completely dark) steam room and the small dark mazes. That's a problem if, like me, you like to see the face of the other person. But other than that a pretty good experience, and certinly the nicest sauna I've been to in Genava.

Sauna is a bit difficult to find
This sauna is a bit difficult to find on public transport. From the Station take bus 9 or trams 14 & 16 (Northerly direction) for 7 stops after you see a large housing estate on the right. Walk back to the access road (do not go over the pedestrian bridge) and walk onto the estate. No pavements as this is the service road for the Avanchet Building, so watch the traffic! Walk across two roundabouts and the sauna is in front of you. Cross Baptista Av.

UPDATE January 2010
Just revisited this sauna which is now mixed male/female for the whole week - not that it makes much difference as gay sex still goes on everywhere! Very active in the alcove to the left in the steam room with "steamy" male orgies going on most of the time. Plenty of action in the two mazes. Nicely fitted sauna with Jacuzzi, steam, sauna, bar serving drinks and snacks - plenty of large cabins. Well worth a visit.

Cosy and clean and very ac...
Cosy and clean and very accessible if you are near the airport area. Mixed most days except Sunday which is men only; mixed crowds (gay/bi/straight) younger and older who are all pretty tolerant of each other. All on one level in principle with numerous cubicles and many with porn TV streaming; one large screen with porn mostly showing bi films except on Sundays which is just gay. Drinks and snacks are available from the very friendly staff. Very clean and no limit to the number of towels one uses; free condoms and lube available too.
