Totally rubbish Turkish bath experience. The customer service was non existent. The place was grubby. The guy demanded a 10tl tip for giving me a rushed bath. Do yourself a favour and don't visit this place!

Terrible service! You get a Swedish sauna, not a Turkish bath and the whole experience is very rushed rather than relaxing as they try to get through the volume. Worst pedicure I've ever had...my toes came out bleeding... Avoid this place!

I didn't find much useful info myself so I'll give as much detail as possible...but if you're short of time, in short: Great masseurs for men and masseuses for women. They know how to give a good rub! Was however slightly under the advertised 20 mins I recommend going in naked with just the towel they provide. Avoid busy times... More

I was really looking forward to my Turkish bath and booked the full program (wash, scrub, soap massage and oil massage, for 100 TL and a 40 min massage). The women were very rude and bossy, just shouting oi lady at you, so you never really knew who they were talking to. I took my bikini and she practically ripped... More

Going to Istanbul and not going for a Turkish Bath!!! Well if you do decide to have one I would recommend this one. It is cheaper Cemberlitas Hamami. The latter is probably more opulent with a Domed Roof but it costs 153 Liras for the full program, which includes hamam,shower bath and oil body massage whilst the Sultanahmet costs just... More

Me and my 5 friends (all female) went for our frist experience with turkish bath to day. The environment was very old indeed, there where a lot of green mold on wall and in the ceiling. It did not look very delicious! But the treatment was quit OK. We paid 90 TL for full treatment including oilmassage and we did... More

If you go with the right attitude youll have a fun time here. This was my first turkish bath and after reading the reviews here, I simply went expecting to get what you paid for (this was the least expensive bath in the city) and enjoy every minute of it. That meant not being surprised if there was not much... More

The so called spa is in an old building and to it corresponds the state of the equippment which is understandable. The staff is horrible We didnt have much idea what to expect and noone was able to explain anything. We were ordered from place to place, not attended and the masseuse didnt smile for a second. It felt like... More

I read reviews of this bathhouse before visiting and was nervous, but I had an excellent experience there. The people working barely spoke English, but that didn't affect me. The scrub, massage and shampoo was absolutely amazing! I think the reviews are so drastic depending on how comfortable people are not being clothed around others. I found this to be... More

Went here for our first Turkish bath and both paid for the same service. It was good value and cheaper than some others (Cagaloglu Baths) As a man I didn't get pummelled as I had expected which was a bit of a shame, although I am sure the promise of a tip would have changed things. There was a bit... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
