  1. Not at level of expectations !

    “I went there on October Tuesday the 21st. Box for play are small: Non-sense to play with someone. Towels are small size and they smelt very bad when they are wet: unacceptable bad smell.
    This sauna must quickly upgrade those two points otherwise technology investments don't make sense. “

  2. It definitely is a world of wonders

    “Went to Aniki while they were still on running period on Saturday eve (23 August). The entrance fee is combined by a 1000 twd membership fee and 300 twd entrance fee. This might have changed after opening officialy but I'm not sure.

    Now to the point - forget everything you know about gay saunas... this place is insane! Yes, the design is modern and the facilities are new and clean but that's not the reason it's the best sauna I've been. At that night, about 300 Taiwanese were in that sauna. Most of them were young (didn't see anyone over 45), half of them were muscular. It felt to me like a candy store where I could take everything I want. Electronic music on the background which I really liked. Originally, I wanted to be there 2 hours and to rest after before my flight. What really happened is that I left the place at 7am directly to pack and go. That was the BEST sauna night I had ever. I highly recommend it. I hope I'm not building up too much expectations regarding that place but anyway that was my experience.“

  3. Our underwear was stolen and management didn't care

    “I went to Aniki with a couple friends. Most guys there walk around in their underwear. There are shelves outside the steam room to put your towel and underwear when you go in. During our time at Aniki, ALL of our underwear was periodically stolen while we went in and out of the steam room.

    We told management about what happened and they didn't seem concerned. They weren't surprised and acted like this happens all the time. They offered an apology and that was it. My Andrew Christian underwear is worth way more than the admission price. Management treats customers and their property poorly, so I won't be coming back.“

  5. Shifting in June 2014

    “Aniki will be shifting to a new venue in June. Was there in mid-Jan and though I agree that the facilities have deteriorated, the guys were still good. They're undergoing a lawsuit with the landlord so that resulted in the lack of hot water for the tubs and showers. Let's just hope for better facilities and guys at their new place come June.“

  7. Gone downhill… FAST!

    “I wrote a review on Aug. 22 and went back in early January. Aniki has deteriorated badly in those few months. Not only has the entrance changed, but so much needs fixing. All three hot pools/jacuzzis were empty and out of order. Most of the showers don't work and the ones that don't have hot water. Until everything is fixed, Aniki needs to bring their entrance fees down.

    Speaking of money grabs, skip the Cool Party on the first Saturday of every month. Is there supposed to be a live DJ? The music is no better than getting streaming dance music off of Pandora. And who goes to Aniki for the "light show"? Aniki seriously needs to dump this theme night for something more sexual. 800TWD is too much for crappy music and lights.“

  8. Definitely not the best in Asia

    “First, after changing the entrance, they need to post directions in English too at the old address. Not all of us can read Chinese. They really need to fix the showers as many don't work and very often, there is no hot water.
    The jacuzzi didn't work several times I was there, they never bother to fix it.“

  9. worst experienced I have ever had

    “1) Rude & unfriendly front desk receptionists 2) not a very clean - many broken shower heads 3) too many smokers in the hallway 4) no restaurant, no bar, no cafe. Your employees must be trained to be friendly and polite to all people! As you should know, those people pay you all the bills!“

  10. Very disappointing

    “To describe as one of best in Asia is a joke. No cafe. No restauant. No comfortable seating area. No swimming pool. No outside seating. Rubbish gym with 2 broken workstations.“

  12. One of the best

    “The best in Asia? Babylon in Bangkok, Hokuokan in Osaka and 24 Kaikan in Tokyo may have better claims for that title but Aniki won't disappoint. Clean and well-equipped facilities with an active darkroom and lots of private cabins, You can probably spend a few days here without having to exit! If fit young Asians are your thing, you'll find them here.“

  14. “Aniki is the best sauna in Asia. Many cute muscle guys go there. Many Promotion at entrance. Very clean and new decoration. If you are gay and come to Taiwan you should go to Aniki Sauna. It 's the best for you.“

  15. “Very nice facilities and plenty of eye-candy if you're into Asians (not many non-Asians there). However, it's starting to show signs of wear and tear (especially the wallpaper). The owners need to invest more in maintenance.“
