  1. My first trip to BKK

    “Was today in this place, clean, staff very rude. If you are over 50 yo, you will pay double for the entrance 300 baht, no foreign people, I was the only one.“

  2. Clean, local nice guys

    “I’m impressed with this place. 25-35 yo gay guys, mostly local and some foreigner. Free lubes & condom. A lot of people during 5-8pm everyday! Try to get heat from dry sauna then find some mates to have fun with! ❤️“

  3. Real big sauna

    “I went there in this March 2017, just got the chance to leave some reviews here. I took MRT got off at Phra Ram 9 station. It’s not far from the subway but in an alley. It’s quite big , almost 5 or 6 floors maybe? Price is 360 B m(maybe) for the weekend.

    On the top floor there are many guys gathering around and just watching, even a host who gave some information. Very interesting. But I found at least 50% are Chinese, and I am Chinese too, so no strong attraction to me. After wandering around about 2-3 hours, then took taxi back to my hotel. Generally speaking, it’s nice and friendly, cheaper than in HKG, better facility than in mainland.“

  4. Great Alternative

    “I went to R3 on a Sunday for the first time, as I was busy with work before... it is the 'Asians for Asians' place and the complete opposite to Babylon, which caters to the old whites and their guys.... I am Mediterranean myself, so I did not expect much in action, but was pleasantly surprised. The bar staff on 4th floor are a bit on the lazy side, but that's ok... I had a good time still and was quite happy being there instead of sleazy Babylon... Facilities were clean (they even cleaned the steam room while I was there).... but nothing special... Sauna is a bit run down and would need some refurbishment... Jacuzzi - if there is one, it must be out of order already... showers do not have warm water (the heaters installed in two of them do not work).... so all-in-all ok, but as always: dont expect too much.“

  6. Value Sauna

    “I was charged at the lowest entry fee and was surprised. Even though I am not Thai, language wasn't a big issue. I had a good fun night.“

  7. All night Long

    “Was here Tuesday 20 SEP 2017 7:30pm - 6:00am. The good thing about this place is that it's open 24 hrs. This means that even if you come late in the evening you can still expect there to be guys here who intended to stay the night cause they missed the last train home.

    Being a Tuesday it was pretty busy (40 guys) and even in the early morning there were about 15-20 guys who stayed the night. All guys were Asian and most in the 20s to 30s and fit. Definitely recommend “

  8. Lots of cute young guys

    “R3 Sauna had the most cute young guys of any of the other popular saunas I visited. So I think their policy of age discrimination makes sense for them. Come around 7-8pm for the most guys. The guys here tend to be mostly into other Asians, but I'm not sure why that's a negative; any of these Thais would be similarly ignored in any gay sauna in the West. Facilities are adequate but nothing special. Lighting is better (not as dark) than some of the other saunas.“

  9. Shame of Bangkok

    “It's a shame a place that is prejudicial to older gay men exist in a friendly city like Bangkok.

    To all the young men who have written comments that they think it's "ok" to charge older men more, I suggest you read your LGBTQ history, you will not be enjoying this freedom today to be openly gay if not for the struggle and sacrifice of these older men you think is "ok" to discriminate against.

    Please show some respect for your elders, Bangkok is better than this.“

  10. Staff @4th floor need to be improved

    “Staff who work at 4th floor bar is so loud while talking with same group.

    Some staff work with smoking cigarettes outside bar counter. It's dangerous when touched to other people.

    They (staff @4th floor) occupied counter bar seat, enjoy inside sauna and they behave as they are like over guests.

    Locker staff who work at 2 floor is ok. They work friendly and they are controlled.“

  11. Nice new clean place but...

    “I decided to go to R3 as to experience it, after consecutively been to Babylon for the past 4 days during my visit. Location is a bit further than Silom area but because of some of good review here, i ignored those negative comments. After 2 hours, I did not enjoy it at all. So quiet, no action at all. There are 2 beautiful Thai guys I noticed but most of them did not do anything other than just standing, sitting and posing around. The staff was rude when he was yelling at me (he speaks Thai cause he thought im a Thai - im an Asian btw) because I was wearing sandals, which i didn't know not allowed as I always wear it whenever I go to saunas. After 2 hours, I decided to go back to Babylon since it was my last night in BKK...the atmosphere, the people, was so obviously different...im glad i went back to Babylon after my experience in R3. Will I ever go back to R3? Absolutely NOT!!“

  14. Their sauna, their rules

    “I have no objection regarding age related issues. If thats the rule then let them be. Yes we all gonna be old in the future but while we are young we want hot action and young crowd too. Older guys seems to know everything and have the tendency to intimidate younger people we went to the sauna to relax not to feel intimidated. No old people no moneyboys so we can enjoy freely. Thats my opinion only.“

  15. Great place!

    “I was there on the 4:th of February for the "o-party" and it was amazing. Most of the guys are Asians who are into other Asians (I'm white, early thirties) but still plenty of opportunities and everyone is really friendly.

    I have seen complaints in other reviews about the entrance fee being much more expensive for people over 50, but I actually think this is a good thing. Guys going here are not into older guys anyway. If you don't like that I recommend going to Babylon instead, there you will find what you are looking for!“
