  1. Dirty Sauna

    “I have been to many saunas in many countries and have seen several dirty saunas but Rainbow definitely takes the cake when it comes to cleanliness and hygiene. The standard of cleanliness is appalling. Very dirty and filthy. After I left the place my body started to itch.

    The crowd are also not good looking and there were not many people even on a Saturday. The people there were mostly either old, fat or both.

    Lube and condoms are not available in the rooms. I understand that they will only provide each customer with only 1 condom. Avoid at all cost.“

  2. Nightmare

    “Totally disgusting. I actually was there for 5 minutes then left. It was old, dirty and gross. Pity that owners like this in Asia only want to collect money but don't careless about their facilities. The place is in good location, with some upgrade, it would have been a hit. Save your money, don't come here until they renovate the facility“

  3. Cannot say it is nice

    “Little bit dirty and cold inside. Some rooms are locked. But there were no one inside. It is not easy to have something in this sauna. Bad smell in Dark rooms and ppl just walk around over and over again. It needs more resting places for guest to scanning each other. I think this sauna needs remodeling for letting ppl have more chance to have something...and entrance fee were different from the sign on the front. Still I don't know why.“

  4. Was great, no just. HoHum

    “I have been going here since 2009 as well. It's a little rundown but terrible. The need lube dispensers through. They also need to Turn the AC back on the second floor. It is too hot. They need but more cleaning toilets on all the floors. Last I see there were two u could us to douch right next to shower, we'll there is no reason. That At least 2 other upstairs can be ready. The tub room needs that cleaned and get people more into the happily of the little. Shower curtained areas (prime are area for nookie, same with the dark steam room and dry sauna)! So u finish showering and head in. “

  5. No Longer Attracts Good Looking Men

    “I guess most reviewers here are Caucasians but anyways coming from an ASIAN man point of view, i really have to say that Rainbow does not attract good~looking patrons any longer. This is based on my 4 days of observation being there, most guys are averaging or below average (don't mean to judge anyone though). Anyways, this place is still a nice and pleasant place to hang out with since the owners are friendly. Those hot Taiwanese guys everyone loves to see aren't to be seen here anymore and i am quite sure most of them have gone to Huang Ding hotspring (yes i wrote a review there too). Rainbow will always have its loyal supporters and i hope they grow from strength to strength in the course of time.“

  6. Not so good experience

    “It is a bit expensive for 450. Should have gone to Hans or Aniki. Bears are not welcome with the crowd. So hope for bear aficionados when you visit.“

  9. Not a nice experience

    “I entered after midnight on a weeknight and was charged 150NTD. My 19 year old Caucasian friend arrive about 30 minutes later to meet me and was charged 450NTD. He ask why he was being charged 450 instead of 150, and the answer from the man at the counter was "Chinese people: 150". I never expect this in Taiwan :( I felt so bad...“

    • Taiwan - poor English speaking country

      “What should have been said is "$150 for local Taiwanese or those who have Taiwan's ID card" as shown on the entrance sliding door. It is sad to say most local businesses run by gay people are not too bothered about hiring staff who can speak basic English. If mainland Chinese go to Rainbow during the $150 time slots they are still going to be charged at $450 as they are not local Taiwanese nor they have Taiwan's national ID card.“

      • Why this place charges people differently base on their nationality?

        “That is terrible to charge differently base on your nationality, especially this is in Taiwan. How backward this is. I am not sure if I want to support place that practices this type of rules.“

  10. Nice experience

    “A great place with a dated atmosphere but not in a bad way. The crowd is mixed all ages but westeners are in a lower number. That what I really recommend is the free availability of condoms and lube to prevent std's.“

  11. rainbow sauna... weekend update

    “So good I went there again on Friday 24/1/14 from 6.30pm - 8am. Got to talking with the owner and realised that for weekends, things pick up after 10pm. And he was right! People were just lining the corridors after 10.30pm. However, for visitors over the Chinese new year period I was told its a bit quiet as many exit Taipei to go home and spend new year over the holidays. Happy to hear from actual accounts. “

  12. sexy b grade horror movie

    “Came here on 22/1/14 wed 6:30- 10:30. First thing you notice here is the amount of space! Bigger than any sauna in Hong Kong with a size to rival 24 kaikan in Tokyo! The place is dated but not in a dirty or hazardous way. Second floor consists of a nice combo of private rooms with open areas for group fun, with enough lighting to notice someone is there but still dark enough to give you a fright when someone rounds a corner. This place has the potential to become legendary if they renovated and used more of the space but either way still a great place to visit. Guys numbered in the 20's were there until about 9 after which it died down a little (<10). A simple positive change would be to have lube and dom dispensers in rooms“
