We went as a family to this Haman over Easter holidays. After paying the Males of the group went left and the Females went right into our separate bathing areas. From our Female point of view, we had a great experience overall. Initially as we had not been to a Haman before we were not sure what to do, so... More

The oldest ham am in Istanbul. Visited with my future daughter in law and modesty must be left behind. We did get good scrubs but service was indifferent until they hovered to make sure our tip was large enough. I still liked this very unique experience. Full of local color!

I'm giving an "excellent" status due to the bath experience with attendant named "Duran" but the rest of service was middling at best. Before you go: 1) be hydrated as it will be hot; 2) payment is only in cash. We bought the traditional Turkish bath package which was 180 TL (about $70 USD). This bath is noted to be... More

I had my first hamam experience in Marakkesh last year and was really looking forward to this visit. I agree with other posts about it being overpriced. A group of five of us went together and three of us had issues and/or felt short-changed. One was completely forgotten about in the steam room and ended up waiting about 30 minutes... More

I went there with my boyfriend and we both booked the complete bath service for 50€. My sister has been there before and recommended that place to me, so I thought it must be great. As they separate men and women our experiences differ. When I went in there, I didn't know where to go and what to do, because... More

Nice place, staff are nice, experience is good. I felt it is a bit overpriced but in general i feel as good as new after this. The interior is simple and all marble so be careful from slipping.

They say "When in Rome..." so I figured I'd have a Turkish bath since this is something we never do in Australia. It was worthwhile and if I ever find myself in Turkey at some future point, I will do it again. I'm pretty conservative when it comes to nudity but the bath attendant told me to take off all...

Everyone should visit a real hamam at some point. It's an amazing experience. The setting here is gorgeous, but it's really all about the bath, from my perspective. Newcomers beware: no-one here will speak English, but they don't need to. You're given a large bath sheet, and you enter the communal bathing area in either your underpants alone...or in nothing...

The bath itself is in an amazing building. The ancient room with its dome is fantastic. The whole experience is bad though. I cannot understand why it would be on the list of 1000 things to do before you die. There are better Hamams in Istanbul! First of all it is very pricy. We went for the "Deluxe Oriental Service"...
