This spa is kind of in the mix.. I thought it lacked a little luster with deco and there were no disposable thongs.. however the scrub was awesome if you dont mind being in the buff..The Massage was very intense. I sorta would have preferred a softer touch but I believe most who love it like to be rubbed hard and with mucho strength... Speaking good english would be need to know when the massage is good as oppose to bad!! I have been to better spas but for the buck and a last minute fix its great!\r
I really like to be pampered and catered too!!! What really spoiled the refreshing time was being asked for a tip... My visit was a gift and I thought that too be the real surprise.. A tip is just that something extra if one feel the need not a pushed tug of war that becomes embrassing to the customer... Sol should practice better Spa taste the last impression was a very cheap pasty taste.. Hint the money machine in front of the reception desk is a dead give away!!!

So its my b-day and I decide to pamper myself. I had always passed by Sol and wondered about it. I decide to treat myself to the full body treatment $120 bucks.I had my body scrubbed, seaweed on my face and jesus was that sauna insanely hot but good. Then I had a girl with the softest hands give me a excellent massage. Seriously I have had massages at resorts that werent as good as this. Now as for the rumors about this place? Well yeah they are true (not that i participated) but seriously as just a spa its pretty darn good. If your into that special bonus then hey good for you enjoy, contrary to allot of the judgmental jerks on this site, there is nothing wrong with the big s :)

Pros: Super Cheap

Cons: Pretty much nothing

My birthday Feb., 17, 2010 and my daughter and I go to the city for a Scrub/massage package $120. First time customers. Scrubber did not speak English and masseuse had a few words. Hail and hearty scrub and massage with steam room and sauna. Feeling great afterwards and get to desk. Masseuse also present with receptionist. Though $20 from each of us was a good tip. But receptionist ,""is that all, you need to give more, 2 women, did you not like them"". Our smiles vanished and the good feeling we had started to ebb. The masseuse weighed in speaking Korean and looking very cross. ""Give more' says the receptionist. Not being rich and needing some money for a snack before taking the long journey home we each came up with an extra $5. Still not satisfied. So, we left feeling guilty. These women worked very hard and they must not get much pay. Maybe they depend on tips. We both felt terrible that we could not afford more money and we were also very concerned for the women. An existential crisis since I am very involved with human rights work and I still feel guilty for the workers. Would have a hard time going back.Feedback?

Pros: Scrub and massage excellent

Cons: When leaving, too much pressure and guilt for more tip!

You know the saying that good things come in small packages? This couldn't be more true for Spa Sol.

It's small but awesome. It was spa night. The spa down the street where we usually go was booked so we walked into Spa Sol on a whim and were immediately accommodated. I got the body rub and 60min massage. My masseuse was awesome, talked to me about trouble spots and checked in with me throughout to make sure the pressure was right. I was in another place afterwards... soooooo relaaaaaxed. My friend said it was one of the best treatments she'd ever had. Thank you Spa Sol!

when you can get a mind blowingly good real treatments at bigger places! So I've been going to a smaller place around k town. Not gonna name names! :) so long story short, I've got the body scrub and massage package for 120. It was almost a 2 hour process of being pampered! I've never felt this refreshed and rejuvenated ever!! Make sure you ask for the seaweed emollient and the milk cleansing!! Best ever!!!

My friend recommended this place, so I went last week to get a scrub + massage package.\r
The scrub!! I got a scalp massage and a mini-facial with cucumber slices and seaweed emollient, oh and the milk cleansing!! and the swedish massage after the scrub - this is just the perfect combination!! I was going to get the massage only but then I decided to get the full package coz the scrub itself is 70 but as a package it was only 130 in total (the massage is 90 on its own). I think i'm gonna be a regular at this place!

Pros: Relaxing

My boyfriend went here off and on for years. He never told me because of the ""secret"" part...certainly something that he could get at home. Well, recently he ""graduated"" to the place next door where they provide ""full service"". Ladies, keep your man out of this place if you don't want your relationshiop compromised.

After been going to juvenex for a while I needed some change. Spa sol is right around the corner from juvi so needed to check it out. First, the facility was clean and quiet. I've gotten the body scrub and massage package. I gotta tell you, I didn't expect such a great service. Boy was I wrong. The body scrub took off about 5lbs of the dead skin I had and got me all rejuvenated making my skin look and feel of an infant's. I've got the sweedish massage afterwards and i was knocked out from the skillful hands of the massuse. Wish I can remember her name. I'm sure everyone here does a good job tho. Well if you haven't been here yet check it out!! It's worth it!!!

I went to a lot of massage places in manhatan but this place is so far the best!! everyone was really nice and it was very clean. I got a whole body scrub and it was amazing! after this, I also got a body massage, which was also great. after all this, I felt like a princess and I was very relaxed. I think I will be going back to this place at least twice a month!!!

Pros: USED TO HAVE AMAZING MASSAGES!

90 dollars for 50 minutes. Pretty asian ladies (you do not get to choose - walk ins). Nice facility. Great locker room with nice towels, robes and drinks. Excellent mens full body massage. Haggle free HE. They expect about a 40 dollar tip. \r
Overall nice place, nice massage and pretty girls. You are getting the same service as Garden Retreat Spa (off 5th Ave) for about 30 dollars more and 10 minutes less.

Ive been to many spas in NY and this one is right up there. It doesnt have the same feel as the bigger commercialized ones, its a bit quieter and definitely more relaxing. Not to mention its probably half the price, therefore, you can go twice for the same price. At least thats how I think of it. The sauna and steam rooms are clean, authentic jade, and personal. The service is top notch and the location makes it so easy. Especially if you live outside of Manhattan like me, Penn station is a block away. Easy after work go to spot. And theyre open late, ive been there as late as 11pm and it was no problem. Try it out!!

Pros: left happy and released

My wife and I were in town for our anniversary and were looking for a couples massage at a reasonable price. The location was also important to us. Being across from the Empire State Building made it a convenient location. The facilities were top notch. The locker rooms were stocked with everything from deodorant to a fridge with drinks. The message was very good. We left relaxed and ready to enjoy a broadway show.

Salon Sol is proffesionally staffed. The enviroment is superb including industrial air purifieres. The staff is well trained and proffesional. The time you get is exactly 50 minutes. If you need a strong massage please let the booker know in advance, some of the girls are more delicate but several are the best in the City. They are open until 1 am which works for me as it is so nice to get a massage then go home to sleep or be showered, groomed and ready for the city. They are right behind the Empire State Building which ipute you right in midtown. I have back problems and they are addressed, a note is that some of the girls do not speak englih well so let the front desk know about any special needs. The steam and sauna are great and the facility is spotless. Enjoy.

HORRIBLE. I went once because my girlfriend bought me a gift certificate for a dry sauna and body scrub and massage. It was average at best - the atmosphere is very cramped and uninspiring and the body scrub and massage are okay but leave you wondering if they're nearly worth what you're paying. The clincher though was at the end when they demanded a sizeable tip; I gave them all I had in my wallet (25% of value) and they pressured me for more. I finally gave my credit card, at which point they (believe it or not) took it and charged me (WITHOUT asking me what I wanted to pay) a 48% tip and asked me to sign it. I have never been so quite so insulted by such poor and tasteless customer service. I would recommend this place to NO ONE unless you like being mistreated.
