Wonderful massage! I'd also like to mention that I made an appointment using my limited Italian language skills...I made a mistake in the time I requested. They were very understanding, and found time to take me later that same day. Truly a great establishment. Do yourself and favor and book a massage here!

I went to get a relaxing massage after a hard period of work. I went for the couples massage with a friend and it was lovely. We where massaged at the same time in a relaxing room. Love the feel and ambience of the place. Nice and friendly staff and I can say that relax was fully acquired for me!

I came upon this place by accident after a grueling 4 hours on one of the Vatican tours. Not to mention my handbag which I think weights 10lbs. They had a special 15 euros for 15 minutes and it was lovely. She found all the nots in my upper back. It was just so good. This is not a light... More

After a long day touring around the Vatican, I thought of indulging in some foot massage before I head back to hotel. I went to Baan Thai which for a foot massage.

We are sorry you did not have a good impression of our place. As we tend to stress, the interior is an original Thai house brought back from Thailand and we give it all the attention it needs, as it thoroughly cleaned everyday, but maybe it can appear a little old and worn at times. We are sorry for that.... More

The atmosphere was gorgeous and relaxing, everyone was so kind! Asked for a Swedish massage (it was offered online) what I got was not as such. It was like a skin massage, no pressure was applied, just my skin rubbed. At times it hurt and felt like an Indian burn (idk the proper name). I left leaving way more tense... More

I was there 15 minutes before scedueld time, when I came they gave me green tea and ginger so I felt great. However massage was not so good, let say it was average. It was 10 minutes shorter! Place is not so clean as I expected. I am not going back.

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighbourhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighbourhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
