Wow, in reading the great reviews of Aire Ancient Baths, I felt like I must have gone to some other Aire Ancient Baths. I was given a gift certificate by my family who said it looked really good and the reviews were excellent. Well, let me tell you, it wasn't. I use spas all the time and this was incredibly... More

Myself and two friends planned a spa day to celebrate two of our birthdays. My friend called to make appointments several weeks in advance on a Saturday. Come to find they only had 9:00 am appointments available. Two of us decided to go with the 9:00 am appointment for massage and the other just was going to use the bath's... More

In the middle of my one hour massage I heard this terrrible noise - it was a was the spinning of a dryer right above the massage area. I mentioned it to one of the ladies in the locker room, she said "its coming from the laundry room--people complain all the time, you should mention it to management at the... More

The staff treats you like a King or Queen and speaking of feeling like a King, this is how the Romans must of bathed. The spa area and numerous pools and steam room are absolutely refreshing. They say you should soak in a hot tub for 10-20 minutes, then take a quick dip in a cold pool, then spend 10-20... More

This place was so awesome! Loved every minute of it! We spent about 2.5 hours in the baths with a half hour massage in the middle. So lovely and relaxing! My favorite parts were the sauna/steam room (the best I've ever experienced!) and the saltwater pool where you can float completely effortlessly! Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a... More

Very friendly and accommodating staff, very clean place. A bit pricey for a 2 hour experience but worth it. Sip peppermint tea while you wait to be checked in. Smallish locker rooms. A relaxing spot to decompress from the city stress in hot tubs . You have to make an appointment for a two hour session thus the place keeps... More

The bath facilities are amazing, we thoroughly enjoyed them, however when we were led to our massage area we had a thin curtain in front of a wall to change behind, and during the massage the sounds from the costume spinner was like a small aircraft taking off, not very relaxing. The massage itself was good. If you can, ask... More

Treated to a couples massage and use of the many Spa pools by our daughter. A phenomenal experience to refresh and renew. Beautiful setting, loved every minute of the experience.

We love Aire Ancient Bath! We've gone several times, sometimes on our first night in NYC after dinner we will schedule the 9pm. time slot - we leave completely relaxed for a good nights sleep before our first frantic day of trying to fit it all in. It's beautifully done and a peaceful, elegant experience.

Staying in TriBeCa

Neighbourhood Profile
What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighbourhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighbourhood home.
