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.

Took my daughter here after she attended a marathon the previous day. The whole experience was just heavenly, we felt so relaxed and refreshed after the bath and massage. Would definitely come back here and highly recommend for a pampering experience.

The Hamam is more than 500 years old, the building still retains the old world charm. The Hamam experience is one of its kind...

For my first visit in a hamam I decided to choose Ayasofya due to given recommendations. My expectations weren't disappointed! Very friendly, caring and well qualifyed staff as well as beautiful architecture! It's a bit to expensive though for what they offer!

My partner and I signed up for the "bath". The men and women are separate. I think this is better. You are pampered better than any spa you have attended. The bath, scrub and massage were incredible. I would have gone back if I could afford it. Do not go to a lesser bath. This is the best in the... More

This Hamam is strikingly gorgeous and very, very clean. The staff is wonderful -- very friendly and attentive, and the massage/scrub was great. That said, the whole experience felt a bit rushed, especially for the price. There was no time to relax in the bathing areas after the scrub/massage was complete. Also, the relaxation area where you head after the... More

The therapist Ayset was wonderful she was very professional and attentive.I don't think I have felt so relaxed and pampered. I love the city of Istanbul and now have a reason to love... More

I've done many spa treatments and visits all over the world but nothing compares to this place. It smells like heaven and looks like it too!! It is so beautiful. The staff are wonderful, gentle and kind. Being totally naked was a new experience but you just go with it. They will tailor your experience too. You enjoy treats between... More

Me and my daughter had a fantastic experience at ayasofya hurrem. It was however more like a "normal" spa experience than a proper turkish treatment. However my daughter (18) was delighted and liked the luxury touch.

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.
