My family and my first visit to a hamami. This is beautifully understated, historical opulence , to give you a level of care and relaxation that for me felt like a family member was caring for me. Shaahab, was the gentleman who took care of me ( please forgive me if I have misspelt your name). His manner was a... More

Our sons recommended we not miss a Turkish bath, and they were right. It was an incredibly relaxing hour or so where my body was indulged and my mind wiped clean of everything. Don't go if you don't like to be naked, at least on the women's side, or if you don't like strong massages (on the men's side). But... More

I've chosen this Cagaloglu Hamami based on Rick Steve's Istanbul episode, and it was quite authentic feel with historic atmosphere. I've tried Complete Bath Service at EUR 50 including massage and Peeling/washing. First you change to a bare towel and lock the door, then get into this large sauna with glass openings on the ceiling relaxing yourself. Then there's supposed... More

This was a wonderful experience in a historic turkish bath. Not like anything you would experience. This hammy has separate women and mens sections - completely separate. You lay on a warm marble slab and a woman scrubbed, massaged, shampooed me with lots of warm water poured over me and lots of great suds and aromatic oil. Forget that you... More

Never been to a Hamam, and choose one, after reading many comments on-line from different nationalities,- as every nationality has different expectations-, and made up my mind for the Cagaloglu Hamam. I think it was Great. I took the full program for an hour. I loved every minute from it, the ladies were very kind, and I felt so clean... More

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.
