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.

I had never visited a hamam, and I wanted to try one while visiting Turkey. After much research, I decided to go to this one due to its positive reviews, and the place did not disappoint. Although the treatments are pricey, I wanted to be in a comfortable and clean environment, and I believe I got what I paid for.... More

This is my first time in a Turkish bath, and it has definitely set the standard high for me, the luxurious Hamam, clean, serene, and relaxing. I never thought I would need a massage, but the masseuse massaged me so good it made me feel like I'm jello or pudding. Definitely worth it, and a must for anyone.

One of the most luxurious experiences I have ever had! I know that there are more authentic baths around the city, and cheaper too, but this place is perfect for some holiday indulgence. The building is so beautiful it feels almost magical, and the experience of bathing, being scrubbed and washed, and a massage, if you choose to get one,... More

I love the Turkish hammam and try to go every time I'm in Turkey, but this experience was beyond amazing, you are treated like a real sultana - pampered and spoilt every step of the way. I highly recommend it. It is worth every penny :)

This was my first Hammam experience and I am glad I chose this venue. This is a very foreigner-friendly venue where the staff speak English. It was a bit difficult to understand how it all worked but the staff kindly provided some guidance. The facilities were very clean. This was my first Turkish massage and it felt a bit too... More

I have never been serviced like this before. The service is great! and the staff there is very respectful and helpful; especially, Sinan who gave me the hamam and the massage. I was very well taken care of by him! He made me feel like a Sultan! He is a very nice guy! I could spend the whole day there!... More

Friends told me I couldn't visit Istanbul not not experience a visit to a hamam. As I didn't know what to expect - and there was a lack of explanation of what was going to happen - it got off to a shaky start and never really delivered that special "something" I was hoping for. The staff were very professional... 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.
