The oldest haman in Istanbul (is marketed that way) and is worth a visit including a massage. You need a booking as there are a lot of people going. Male and female is seperated (which is normal in the turkish culture) - price is reasonable. A tip for the masseur is required after your treatment.

it was a little informal for me and a bit intimate. the ladies in the Haman were very nice and my massage at the end was fantastic, it was just a tad seedy, the towels had been used before and I felt a little soiled. The price was good though.

Can highly recommend local hamam nearby 4 seasons hotel . Wonderful full body pampering by local masseuses . Well worth 115 euro. Very traditional & a lovely treat.

These are beautiful baths and worth spending time enjoying the historic splendour. It's easy to imagine yourself as a ottoman prince. Just need a hooks pipe to finish off the scene. This baths is over priced though and the guy that give you the massage spends too much time talking about his tip so you can never really truly relax.... More

I went with my husband on 01/01/13 and in the resting area we exchanged experiences and his was definitely the better! I did enjoy the experience but for 60TL I was expecting more & the price was expensive for what was really a soapy wash! I was hoping for a good massage and maybe if I had paid for the... More

A haman is a great way to relax, especially if combined with a massage. We used the one in the ambassador hotel as it was recommended, and it didn't disappoint. Keep in mind when having a turkish bath and crub, that there is nothing left to the imagination, as everything comes off. But at the end of a tiring day... More

You cannot come to Turkey without visiting a hamam. Take care though, some of them are way overpriced for what they offer. Take a massage as well, but beware masseurs are quite strong. 40 TL for entrance + massage should be the maximum that you would pay.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
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.
