I walked into the Dessewffy branch and asked for a 90 minute aromatherapy branch and paid 10,900 FT to the receptionist. I went to the room, took of my clothes and put on a towel. Then the receptionist came in and said I could only have a 45 minute massage and gave me 1,500FT - "the change." I went ahead with the 45 minute massage, which was very good. When it finished I checked the price difference and found I should have been given 3000 FT change. The original receptionist was no where to be seen. She was called on her mobile and insisted she had given me 3000 not 1500. Pity about the scam as the 45 minute massage was excellent but too short.

Dear Simon1944!

First, sorry for the inconvenience that, we can provide 45min massage instead of 90min.

We want to make clear that our company are not operating with cheap scams,
I think you make sure about this at your second visit at our Vaci street branch. I hope you will write a good review about it :)

The gilrs report this problem and both girls remembered that we give back exactly 3000Ft.
She remember clearly, when she give back the money she said: "This is 3000 forint, I give back to you"
(one piece of 1000 bill and one piece of 2000Ft bill) The color of the 2000 and 500 bill are almost the same, that can be confusing and count 1500Ft.

Anyway if you are around, please come back and we will give you a free 45 min. massage.

Best Regards
Spirit Thai Massage

Wow, this place is great. It was a wonderful massage. The place was very clean and professional. Pa and Oa treated me very well. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Most of the people spoke some English, but it was no problem. They are very kind. I visited both places in the city of Budapest. Both places are very nice. I plan to return sometime soon.

We had the 60 minute full body aroma oil massage (around the region of £30). Relaxing atmosphere, massage therapists able to communicate in English and skillful, well worth the money. The therapist did advise me to have the traditional thai massage next time for body aches and pains. Although I was warned that it is more painful but effective. It involves muscle stretching to relieve tight muscles especially on the back and neck. We finished the session with a nice warm cup of herbal tea. All in all, a great service with a smile. Well recommended.

My hubbie treated me to a 30 minute traditional Thai massage for my birthday on a recent trip. The cost was very cheap in comparison to down south, it was only £18 for half an hour. The atmosphere is excellent, relaxing and lots of little rooms with partitions. You get given slippers on arrival and then you get dressed into some lovely relaxing cotton pyjamas. The rooms are simple and relaxing with beds on the floor. The massage itself is very hard so be warned if you want something relaxing don't choose the Traditional Thai massage. I really enjoyed it, it was very hard which I love and she pulled me in lots of different directions (so very strong for such a tiny lady!) Invigorating. When you leave they give you a little cup of chin-ease tea too. Friendly and excellent service, English speaking.
