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

Simply a place to escape the outside world, soak in a really hot communal bath and let time disappear. There is a sauna as well, but I don't really like saunas. The bath, the soaking and the float away with your thoughts make this place...More
