The water is hot and doesn't smell of chlorine (aka it's clean). The staff are really nice and friendly. I always go by myself so I'm not sure if that's the reason why the lounge isn't suggested. The lounge has a small menu and I...More

Although this bathhouse is quite small, compared to others I have visited, it had all the essential features to make the visit enjoyable. The bath was at a good temperature and large enough for up to 8 people. There was also a dry sauna. After...More
