The bath experience was fun. Luckily, we arrived relatively early in the morning so there were not too many people there already. Later it got very crowded, and as there are only three changerooms (that are a bit dark and unpleasant) I imagine things could...More

There are a couple of showers to rinse. Need to bring your own towel. You rinse first in the warm bathes.
