  • It's not really something that we visit. If we're in paris, we can go there once or twice for having a view of the seine when we go swimming. good evening... Home mixed, fund some people at the counter (we will not generalize) do not rush too to give tickets. even if there is the tail. gently in the morning, not too fast in the evening. quite annoying. the security staff is polite, and there are people who effectively clean locker room, saw the world as there are, work is correct. There are too many people in this pool, very difficult to swim, despite the reservations to the swimmers Hall (which a crawl, which is not beast as double a brewer with her large legs is never easy) lifeguard very inbu of their people (the vast majority) that make us enjoy music to donf... not very cool.

  • Beautiful building on the Seine making its attractiveness and charm.. .but she has the appearance of a pool by its name because it is relatively small and does not have what is hopefully a pool; However the solarium, located above the water basin is adequate and is suited to its name. However the staff is very very friendly and helpful, rider and trying to be at the top despite the hazards and disadvantages related to the heat wave including! Indeed the day where ns ns went the heat was really hot.. .and the wait was 1 hour shows in hand!

  • Personal homepage and security allowing yourself to TU customers, to point the finger the disabled to other customers, smoking in the home, threaten customers asking questions to make them wait for nothing,... excited locker room and full of hair poolside, pool water murky, dubious critters that float, not individual shower, hot collective showers , 4 lifeguards who (except one) prefer to flirt or chat rather than monitor, since none of the posted rules is respected (port of the CAP, the shorts ban, shower bath, ban to run, smoking ban, prohibition of eating, etc), no possibility to buy only water cool to drink once past the gate (but if we're a little curvy chick ", the staff makes you go from small bottles of fresh water)... In short a shame this municipal pool (I don't know where some we view private)! A no longer revisit and disinfection to advise at the exit!

  • This is my favourite pool and I swim worldwide. It is beautiful and filled with light. Boats go by on the Seine. Do not go on a hot day as the lines are too long. The cashiers are really slow but the real down side is men washing their private parts in the mixed showers. They think it's appropriate behaviour for a public pool. But don't let that put you off! It's the nicest swimming experience anywhere.
  • Swimming and sunbathing next to the river sounds like a good idea at first, but this swimming pool is just way too crowded to do either. It is however a really spot if you come very early in the morning or for the night sessions. Careful, it closes a couple of weeks every once in a while for maintenance, and the prices get insane during summer.
  • WHAT THEY DON'T TELL YOU.......... I went on a Thursday. I got there at 12:30, but they didn't open until 1 pm. However there were already 150+ people standing outside in a line. They only have 2- TWO- cashiers inside- so they only let 25 people in the pool at a time...... By the time I got inside it was 2 pm. I wasted 90 minutes standing in line. I had to work at 4 pm... so I only got 2 hours of suntanning time. It's 5 Euro for 2 hours, not bad I thought. YOU MUST WEAR a swimming cap if you want to swim.... so I just rinsed off in the showers and went to sun bathe. I went to leave at 4 pm- (2 hours later); however the changing area is unisex and the teen boys are hogging the changing stalls... so getting dressed took 15 minutes... but not bad I thought... until I left. When I left they stopped me and said I OWED MORE MONEY? ummm WHY? Because I didn't get out EXACTLY 2 hours after I purchased my ticket.... so for the 15 minutes I was "late" they charged my another full 2 hour fee!!!! I was so pissed! They made me late for work and I had to pay the same rate for 2 hours as for 15 extra minutes... WTF. It's not the money I care about- I mean 10 Euro for 2 hours of sun bathing.... but waiting inline for 90 minutes and getting robbed at the end.... Plus I got a sunburn form standing in line... but not much sun once I laid out... It was a waste of my time. Not going again. They need more employees and need to disclose they you have to get out EXACTLY at your 2 hour mark. Plus none of the stupid employees spoke English.... so imagine how mad I was when they can't explain why I'm being asked for MORE money... and I was just leaving.... at least some nice fellow swimmer heard my confusion and helped explain they were just ripping me off for the extra 15 minutes. Next time I'll just go to a nice hotel pool. Plenty of better places in Paris. Oh and I didn't see any food or drinks available for purchase... but at least they let you bring your own inside.
  • Very nice pool floating on the Seine
  • Worst pool I've ever seen, super dirty cloakrooms, showers piwr penalty 2 person (because others are not working), but the worst is that there is 1 basin for everyone and as soon as it gives you that 1 line to swim short, do not go all court PS: jsuis not a haters I'm really go
