50 euros session - rip off! Rushed massage, ladies focus on getting tip, she almost drowned me washing my hair and scrub was too gentle. Best part was waiting on the heated marble slab for her (only because she ran late on someone else; otherwise that would have only been 15 mins also). Find somewhere else for an authentic bathing...

The bath feels out of date and old... well it is in an old historical place, therefore get ready to one of those subreal experiences, but do not expect (as I did) to have a spa treatment or so. In any case it is woth going, just keep your eye more on the experience and less on the spa feeling.

For 50 euros I found this to be a tourist trap. Far from relaxing. They say 10 minute scrub and 10 minute massage. Rubbish. Halve that time, but treble the wait. Overcrowded, noisy, and weird experience for an otherwise supposedly 'calming' experience! Avoid!

its a nice experience but......the personal is too focus on getting a tip instead of giving a great service and getting the well earn tip. You are already paying a good amount of money.

I knew the experience would be interesting if nothing else, but it was amazing! I knew others who had done it, but even their glowing reports did not prepare me for how delightful it really was. I can't recommend it enough. When they offer you the foam, don't turn them down. You won't regret it.

One of the first things I tried was having a quite different experience off a bathtime there. My friend has done it a couple of times before, so she was more familiar with it, but I had to get used to their culture first.

Enjoyed my experience in the Turkish bath. First time in Turkey, first Turkish bath.... so no reference point. Loved lying on the marble slab and warming to the idea of being bathed. The attendant, though not English speaking, communicated well through gestures and limited English vocabulary. I had no trouble figuring out what I was to do. She was very... More

Firstly - please do ignore reviews where people complain about hygiene issues and accidents. after all it is place were people come to wash and it probably doesn't help that everything is marble. however, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the bath and were lucky enough to get the place to ourselves. it is certainly a unique experience where a...

A visit to Istanbul is incomplete without a visit to a Hamam. This being our first visit to one, we were initially unsure how it shall be. It turned out to be a very refreshing and different experience. The attendant was nice and friendly and spoke english. He gave me a good scrub and bath, with a feeling of freshness... More

Cağaloğlu Hamamı is my favourite hamam in Istanbul. It was established in 1741. The real sultan hamam with old traditions. Many famous people visited it. The list is long! I go there from Jan. 2013 always to the same bathhouse attendant(hamamcı), recommended to me by my Turkish friends and to the same changing & recreation room. Time to time I... More
