Much Under My Expectation

I feel a little bit urgent from whole the process. I bought the program including scrub+soap massage+?, the 155TL one. I was told each of the three will be 10 minutes. But I think... read more

I feel a little bit urgent from whole the process. I bought the program including scrub+soap massage+?, the 155TL one. I was told each of the three will be 10 minutes. But I think they were not all 10 min. Especially the message was short. After I finished, I was back to the room. I feel I was a little... More

I must admit I was very nervous agreeing to go along with my boyfriend and our friend to a Hammam for a Turkish bath experience. Being the only girl in our little group I wasn't keen on going in alone! But I am glad I did it. You enter the 300 year old Hammam and are amazed at is beauty... More

We were in Istanbul for a few hours. Armed with a wish list of places to see we hired a taxi with an English speaking driver 4 hours cost $US80. As it turned out the driver was only the means to get from one place to another. We were delivered into the hands of our first guide Murat at the... More

Pamper yourself as if you were an Emperor or a Hollywood star. Many of them have been clients among other Kate Moss, John Travolta and Cameron Diaz. Prices start from 40€ and with 60€ you will be walking on clouds. A great way to wrap-up your day!

The hamam was recommended by the tour guide, hence I paid more than 3 time what other hamams charge. The hot room, had lot of green algae type on walls. The guy doing the massaging, washing, scrubbing was good. But felt just rushed through, as the other who had come before me were still be attended and mine was all... More

This is a famous bath house which has been in operation for years. Rather pricey but it is an experience not to be missed while in Turkey. The soap suds is very cool...

This hamam was recommended by our hotel as well as a tour guide as one of the more authentic ones. It's pricey but we had a good time. Kids pay the same rate as adults, unfortunately. Our kids had the 30 Euro exfoliation package and we took the 60 Euro all-in package. Ladies' experience: We were given disposable panties and... More

Less touristy than others, more authentic than many, this was an experience that made me feel, well, Turkish. Loved it. Felt Florence Nightingale on the huge marble slab with me as I sweated in preparation for my scrub, massage & foam bath. So cool. The best experience in Istanbul for me.

Visited today and the treatment and massage itself was great. Very disappointing that the hamam's café only has one juice from the menu available after sweating all the poison out fluid is essential, hence only 2 stars.

I have been to the Cagaloglu baths twice now, and next time I come back to Istanbul I will certainly return! Beautiful, historic bath house, just lie back and drift away, think of people coming here hundreds of years ago and how different their lives were, as all you can hear is running water, drips from the ceiling, and the...

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.
