This is my favorite Jjimjilbang. It is modern and beautifully designed to cater for everyone’s needs. The location is first class and there are magnificent views from the 10th floor windows throughout the Jjimjilbang, particularly in the bathing areas. The bathing areas have an enormous hot tub with a large cool pool and jacuzzi. There are two hot tubs and the hottest is about a third of the size of the largest. In the Jjimjilbang there are many places to buy food and lots of tables and chairs where you can sit down and eat, play games or just read a book. The Jjimjilbang is very well run with friendly staff. Foreign visitors are made to feel very welcome.

Directions on how to get to The Spa in Garden 5 Jjimjilbang:

Take Subway Line 8 to Jangji Station and leave the station at Exit 3. Once you get to Exit 3 do a U turn and walk down about 300 meters to the first major intersection with traffic lights.

Turn left at the traffic light and continue walking for about 600 meters until you pass EMart and see a very large aluminium sculpture in front of the entrance to the building.

Enter the building through Door 5 and immediately turn right and take one of the lifts on the same side as Door 5. Not all lifts in the building go to the 10th floor and that is why it is important only to use these.
