My husband and I went to Miraj as a birthday activity. Would have appreciated being told beforehand how to control the steam because the room got too hot and I had to take a break. The steam room was very nice and pleasant-smelling. The scrub-down felt great. We also had massages that were very relaxing. The oils they used felt... More

I had the pleasure of attending the Miraj Hamman Spa, I honestly almost forgot what country I was in. It's hard to believe this spa is located on busy Granville street when it is so tranquil inside. I was a little nervous about getting scrubbed down 'au naturel', but Darlene put me completely at ease. It was like I had... More

I am always a bit surprised to see reviews that are not positive about the Miraj. This is one of the first hammams in Canada and is very similar to the experience you will have in a hammam in Paris, North Africa, Turkey or the Middle East. The difference I have found is the personal focus on you by the... More

Not worth going to. The spa is a bit run down, you can see this in the change room, the cupboard doors are worn and it just looks old. I did like the authentic feel of the place in that it was old, like places in the middle east. The music was also appropriate to give a middle eastern feel,... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit where Mulu took such good care of me in this unique spa experience. I loved the steam room and the gommage. The environment was warm, welcoming and clean. Wished I had booked a longer massage (only did the 30 minutes) because it was wonderful. Next time!

Today I went to this hammam with my friend, the greeting was so good, and steam room was excellent. Hammam was so clean, I have been more than 50 places for massage, but the massage they did was so professional and so good, I did not expect to have special massage, but it was deferent. In general I can say... More

I've only been to two hammams overseas, so I can't really speak to how "authentic" this one is. However I had a relaxing visit and left feeling great. The spa itself has a very relaxing atmosphere, and I enjoyed that the steam room was candlelit and quiet. I was by myself, but it would have been perfect for a small... More

Went there on a Thursday afternoon (for men). I was all alone in the steam room which is really nicely done and you get a pot of cold tea to enjoy in there. After that I got the hammam washing, which is quite a rough, nice and relaxing scrubbing. You get showered afterwards. Then I had a 1 hour massage,... More

When I arrived at the Miraj Hammam Spa there was a pleasant aroma just outside the door which only got better as I entered. I was greeted quietly and calmly and since I was early I waited for a few moments at the front until my time in the sauna. I was very excited to try the hammam experience but... More

Paid more than $200 for a 15 minute steam, half-hearted 15-minute scrub, 30-minute painful massage, and 15 minute application of cream to my face. I've been to real hammams in Istanbul, where you get so much more at a fraction - by fraction I mean 1/10th - of the price. So to come from that to this is terribly disappointing... More
