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

the hammam is not super clean, the staff do not speak english, but the overall experience was good, but it should be cheaper, compared to other hamams that are way better.

This place is in some book '1000 Places To See Before You Die', and wanting to sample a 'tourist' grade hamam at a local price I booked from grupfoni for just 69 liras the whole experience of scrub, foam and massage. For that price is was worth it. Relying on it's historic charm, the interior has been neglected. As someone... More

Spending time in Cagaloglu Hamam was one of my favorite memories of Turkey. Initially I went because it was Turkish and I was in Turkey. I had read about hamams for years, but had never experienced one. The architecture was amazing. I had been directed to another Haman that day, and it was a filthy place so I was glad... More

I went to this hamam around 4:30pm on a Saturday, and it wasn't too crowded. However, I think it was a bit pricey (10 minute massage was 40 euro). It was very run down and old (which was actually somewhat cool). I fell asleep and got woken up by the lady who did my massage. She did a great job.... More

The building itself is very nice. But unfortunately, it is extremely overpriced and the service is below average. The price is almost double of Cemberlitas Hamam which is nearby. And Cemberlitas has also better (far better) service. The only advantage is, it is very quite and not crowded. If you want a nice traditional hamam experience, I suggest Cemberlitas. And... More

Before I went here, I read that you should not be naked in the hamams. So I came here, paid for a traditional ceremony (scrub + massage), put my bikini on and went inside the warm, marble room. Everybody (except the staff who had bathing suits on) was totally naked, with no towels on (they were washing themselves or laying... More

The was and the soapy massage felt good. It was lovely lying on the hot slab. However I soon realized my attendant wanted me to leave so he could get a tip. He soon came and took away the pillow he had given for lying on the slab. I entered at 7pm and was told the place closed at ten... More

There was no interior design to experience, bare walls and pipes visible every where, deserted with hardly any customers inside.
