Filthy room. Terrible, donate the money. Don’t waste your time. Thoroughly unpleasant, I wanted it to be over 5 minutes in. Had massages all over SE Asia and this is the only one I would not go back to.

Our 2 massages consisted in being randomly smashed over during one hour. The guys spend their time on the phone and walked away for 5 min. Quality may varies because we met a family that were quite satisfied at the end. Maybe going for the...More

I actually gave it two tries. Two different women. Lasted about 45 min but with phone and simply walk away interruptions. While not unpleasant--did not feel therapeutic. I suspect they get no training. My husband asked for a different masseuse after 10 minutes of random...More

I would rather have donated the cheap price for this massage then had it. Masseuse was talking on phone, disappearing and the rooms felt like an old hospital.

First time I had a massage the women was very good. The second time I got the guy who demanded a tip in the middle of the massage and the message only lasted 35 minutes

Agreed on most accounts, waste of time, they don't change the sheets between massages was not good. It was 70,000 vnd but the entire experience was forgettable.
