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.

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.

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.
