Just as others sometimes crave their comfort food, what initiated my visit to this massage parlour in my neighborhood was an impulsive urge for a foot massage possibly driven by mid-week blues. I dropped by the place without having first made an appointment and was told that I had wait for an hour before a slot opened up. I did not mind the waiting because I was able to keep myself occupied shopping in the few pet stores nearby- but if animals are not your thing, then it is probably best to make an appointment before showing up.
I liked the fact that the staff were punctual, and that the room/bed was ready by the time I went back an hour later. The interior of the parlour is what you would expect a Javanese-themed place would be like: dim lights, dark wood, some cd with birds chirping/water running on loop, and the smell of sandalwood. Personally I would have preferred the place to be just a little brighter- it was slightly unnerving to not be able to assess how clean the place was in a room that dark, though the towels did smell fresh and the area in general did not smell stale. My only complain is that the bed on which I lay was kind of old and the sponge quite thin, but still comfortable enough if you are not quite fussed about aging/fraying leather pieces pricking your skin occasionally.
The massage itself was pretty standard- it hit all the right pressure points, but not shiok enough to put you to sleep. Since the place was only partitioned by thin (straw?) walls, I also unwillingly became privy to the conversation the couple next door were having. The staff themselves were however sufficiently professional- polite, proficient, and non-pushy about wanting customers to upgrade to more expensive massages or signing packages to ensure return visits.
All in all, this is a safe choice if all you want is a standard, comforting massage.
