I happened to walk past the curious entrance to the Hammami and decided to try it. I liked the set up because i think it was fairly genuine. It says that the establishment is 300 years old, and have been visited by many famous guests. In brief, I think it is a good experience. It is a bit costly, because... More

ひどいです。高いだけで、全然やる気のない雑なやり方で、チップあからさまにほしがります(勿論、あげませんでしたが。。。)最低最悪xx受付も感じ悪いし。60ユーロもするオリエンタルコース2人しましたが、絶対行かないほうが良いです。一元の旅行者相手の対応の悪さ。ホテルのハマムはとても良かったです。(Arden Park hotel)   Please Don't go there, You will definitely waste your TOME&MONEY. They are very rude&just looking for tips. I'll NEVER EVER O THERE!! Non va bene niente. Solo costoso e maleducato. Vogliono solamente MANCIA. Mi sento BUTTATO SOLDI.

I normally go to Cemberlitas baths but decided to try this one instead. I always do the self service tariff (No massage). Here it is 90TL compared with 60 TL at Cemberlitas baths. I found the people less friendly here, the bath house was tepid and when the door was opened you actually got a breeze which i have never... More

I can tell you that this was one of my "life experiences". The architecture is beautiful - do not measure it from what you see at the door (it looks like a shady brothel, with this small wood cabins where you leave your clothes, well, you got the picture). But once you are inside, it looks something from a movie... More

We were supposed to have a session at a top-rated hammam, but unfortunately it was closed on the day we were there, so our guide have us booked here. We were not aware of the reputation of this place and the obviously outdated hype this place have been flogging on travel sites and guides, without even trying to live up... More

After a quick scrub the attendant spent the next 10 min trying to tell me that I had to pay extra for a massage that I had already paid for in the #3 package! After repeatedly refusing to pay him extra he seemed to switch tactics and spent another 5 or 10 min trying to negotiate a tip with me... More

…to make sure you do not get ripped off. A tour agency actually booked this appointment for several of us, so I did not know what massage I was supposed to receive. As it turns out, we were given a less expensive (i.e. shorter) massage and did not realize it until it was too late. There was a sizable difference... More

Visiting this hamam was the highlight of the trip. The building is magnificent, the attendant was very nice and after I was done my skin felt the softest it's ever been. It was the perfect way to unwind after a busy day of sightseeing. It was definately not like a typical spa experience, but that's one of the appeals. After... More

After reviewing the feedback on TA I was going to pass on this hamam but decided in the end to go for it and am glad that I did. The treatment wasn't amazing but that's okay as it's really the hamam that you want to experience - 300 years old, this in itself should be the reason you check it... More

If like my daughter and me, you enjoy checking off from "1001 Places to See Before You Die" then definitely put this Hamam on your list. It's famous, easy to find and a pleasant, relaxing experience once you figure out what's going on. Don't imagine that anyone is going to coddle you by explaining Turkish bath house procedure or etiquette... More
