Based on other reviews I decided on visiting this hammami. Being very familiar with body work I was very underwhelmed by the quality and timing of the scrub, soap wash and massage. The hammami is a beautiful example of Ottoman architecture but the experience which...More

Our hotel was near this hamam and the prices were not so high. We went there late at night at 10 pm, there were not so many visitors and it felt really nice and peaceful. Me and my mom enjoyed it and we were pampered...More

I had expected the place to be slightly more luxurious, but I guess that's not always the case with old buildings. The bath itself was an experience. I had come at a busy time so it felt a bit rushed, and not very relaxing. There...More

I've been coming to Istanbul for two years and I've always been very skeptical to visit a Hamam. I've heard a lot of positive things about it, but never saw giving it a try myself. My boyfriend finally convinced me to do so and I'm...More

We went here as a family and it was amazing. My 12 year old son was reluctant but after we started he loved it. We just did the self service my wife did the traditional massage with the scrub. So much history.

Tucked away between stores and restaurants on a busy street, this Hammam has been making people feel good for hundreds of years. You can soak in not only the soap and steam, but the history as you remind yourself that you are participating in a...More

Went with my youngesten son (9yrs) and he loved it. Felt like a new person after the bath ritual and scrubbning. Not the best service but at least it met the expectations.

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside

The steam's purpose is to get the skin ready for the scrubbing. So I would recommend you to not to skip it. Don't worry, inside is really not that hot or much steamy that you hardly see someone. Also right outside of the big... More
