Visited here after seeing it advertised as one of the 1000 places to see before you die. Anyone with sense will leave it to number 999. I visited with some friends and we decided to really push the boat out and go for the whole works at €110 each, what a waste of money. from the outset the person at... More

The Turkish hamam is a good experience, but you can get it for so much cheaper elsewhere. I paid 150TL (50Euros) for 20 mins of massaging. They were hasty and it was not exactly relaxing. Just so I had something to compare with, I went to another hamam that charged me 65TL (20Euros). The attention was much better. I had... More

Sheared like a sheep I felt afterwards, more steam coming out of my ears than I felt in the hamam. The inside on the wet room dome had cloudy black discoloring all over the inside of the dome in the wet area, with a noticeable moldy smell. I was left butt naked on the barely warm slab for what felt... More

Good stufff... - good location (heart of Sultanahmet) - decent history - 300+yrs and counting - the daytime lighting (we went in the evening), but the glass filled dome will filtered light coming in looks dramatic - less people, was alone in the sauna and slept... what a wonderful... experience ... the redeeming factor was the fabulous tucked away Cafe......

If you take a look at bathmatt's review down below, she has said everything I would have. 50 Euro for a 45min scrub down of which 15 of that was me sitting on a slab of marble beside the sink waiting for my hati to come back was a bit much. I have been to Hammam's in Morocco which offered... More

I thought this would be one of the most magical, beautiful experiences of my life. Was I wrong!!!! I had a 10 minute 'relax' period, 10 minute massage, 10 minute oil massage, hair wash… done. $90 later I felt no better than when I came in. The lady who served me was overly fake 'smiley' obviously wanting a good tip... More

The author of '1000 Places To See Before You Die' has a lot to answer for. By including this hamami in her book, she's ensured that every tourist, regardless of how bad the service is, will continue to come here - and therein lies the problem. The history and advertising lured us to this hamami. We should've done more research... More

We passed this hammam on the way back to our hotel and decided to visit to experience an historic Turkish bath and given the "1000 places to see before you die" advertisement outside. The baths themselves were lovely and it was interesting to see an historical place, but I think I expected a bit more from the experience. I paid... More

Our mainly of four had a great time in this hammam. My two boys (12&13) loved this experience and the masseuses were really great with them. We had a steam, had fun watering ourselves in the fountains had our scrub-down and then enjoyed the garden. A hammam experience is a must-do, and we enjoyed this one for our family as... More
