Owner description: The Historical and Luxurious Art of BathingHistorical and Architectural Features“I hope that until the end of days, good hearted friends who take a look at what I have made, when they will perceive the seriousness and the spirit of my effort, can have a fair view and can invoke my name to pray for me.” Mimar Sinan, ArchitectThe Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam in Istanbul was designed and built by Mimar Sinan, the chief Ottoman architect. It was built at the request of Hurrem Sultan (Roxelana), the wife of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent in the 16th century. It was built where the ancient public baths of Zeuxippus used to stand, between the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. The area is also particularly significant as the site where the Temple of Zeus once stood.

This place was the highlight of our trip. It's conveniently located at the center of the sultanahmed area between Hagia Sofia and the Blue mosque. So it's the perfect way to end your day. The place is clean, welcoming, but most importantly friendly staff. We had a bath and massage. My masseuse Silvan A. was phenomenal. She know the art... More

We wanted to try a traditional Turkish Hamam but I had some reservations. Our tour guide recommended the Ayasofya Hurrem. She said it was more expensive than others but that people always had a great experience - and she was absolutely right. I didn't know what to expect exactly but I had read enough to know that you are going... More

My husband and I are no hamam experts - the Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam was our first experience - but we loved every minute of pampering. The facilities were clean and beautiful and the staff were professional and skilled. Spendy compared to another hamam we considered but almost worth it for the the bubble wash alone!

My husband and I enjoyed a traditional Turkish Bath with an aromatherapy massage in two separate sections of the Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Baths - male and female. This is an exceptional Hamam. It is more expensive than the other hamams but the surroundings , facilities and service are superb. Well worth paying the extra.

This beautifully restored 16th century building is located just to the left of the fountain between the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. While perhaps more touristy than traditional and a tad on the pricey side, it is worth every cent. It is impeccably clean and the staff is professional. Upon arrival, you receive a kit with your loofah and products... More

It was very nice experience. Everyone should try at least once in a life. It's also very good gift for a friend.

My Mum and I had a wonderful experience here for her 66th birthday in November 2014. It was slightly more expesice than other hamams but with a Turkish bath and aromatherapy massage, it was no more than you woudl pay in London for something similar. The staff were lovely and made us feel very pampered and cared for. The hamam... More

Professional, courteous staff made this visit an amazing experience. I truly recommend visiting this Hamam, not only for the treatment, but also for the beautiful facilities.

À simply must go. Went with my mother and she loved it. It was my second hammam and this was way better than in Marrakech. Recommend to get the oil massage as well.
