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. « less

The facility is clean and beautiful. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The service was outstanding and enjoyable. Added on a massage and so glad I did, it was one of the best I've ever had. I highly recommended!

It feels very historical over there, if you watched TV series, you should definitely try. Staff is very nice and friendly. The baths are very traditional all in white marble, so they even do not have a shower, special girl would wash you after the procedure. The only disadvantage in my eyes is that if you order additional massage after... More

With great service from all staff. Thoroughly recommend as part of a visit to Sultanhamet for a thoroughly relaxing hammam that makes you feel like royalty.

The facility is truly beautiful and so well restored. Our group was completely relaxed and more exfoliated than we could imagine after our time here. We couldn't imagine a better way to end our stay in Istanbul and would recommend this Turkish bath to any friends or family who might visit in the future.

By far the nicest hammam we visited during our stay in Turkey. The building itself is indescribably gorgeous, with honeycombed wood and polish marble. Everything was exceptionally clean, and the staff were very helpful. If you've never enjoyed the Turkish bath experience before, this is the place to try it for your first time.

This beautiful building with its marble floors and walls and timbered stairways was the perfect way to spend a relaxing pampering hour or so. My first Hamam experience and a most enjoyable one. After tearing all over the city taking in the sights and the shopping it was the perfect finish to 4 hectic days. After the wash and scrub... More
