I've tried "toilet" in different languages but it shows only incorrectly mapped toilets.

If you mean the search box on the home page at www.openstreetmap.org have you tried "toilet near <place>" (which seems to work for me).

Yes, it works, thanks :) frowns any alias for "near my location"? Can't find it skimming through the wiki page for Nominatim

this should work - but for some reason doesn't: "toilets near [-1.48,53.39]" I'll have a look at why it is broken.

to twain: One major drawback: it's not an alias. It would be tolerable if OSM showed coordinates somewhere, but in current state it's not comfortable at all. Anyway, I appreciate the info :)

The overpass-turbo interface is also really nice for that kind of search. Put key=amenity and value=toilets in the search box. It defaults to searching in the currently-visible bbox. Example here.

I must be doing something wrong. Like this: "key=amenity value=toilets"? Also, it combined the warning about blocked cookies with "Browser not supported" which is highly misleading. But I'm not in the mood to file a bug report yet.

Oh, I had to press the "Run" button. Not really obvious.

But the answer is very helpful anyway, thanks :)

Click "Wizard" button and type amenity=toilets, then "build and run query"

Another options are:

toiletmap.org

Some bug in window size detection, try resizing your browser window if you see yellow background.

openstreetmap.ru (Russian only)

POI -> Услуги (third from the end) -> Туалет (second from the end)
