So there are quite a few of these baths around the place. Make sure you go to this one. It's a 300 year old Roman sauna complete with marble slabs and hot running water and the whole experience is like going back in time. The mens and women's are completely separate. You can have a straight sauna or you can... More

if you are going to most ancient hamam, you also need to take in account, that it will not be a cheap deal! you can choose many option to choose from - self service (better not), than some more options. I took deal for 45 EUR, which is rather expensive, but just to try real hamam experience, it was worthy!

This is written up in Eyewitness and other guide books as being the ultimate Hamam with staff who will explain the procedure etc. But we found it very expensive and the staff not at all helpful or even friendly. The interior is wonderful - grey marble with beautiful marble basins and intricate brass work but although there was no one... More

I would not return to this hammam. It definitely seemed overpriced, though to be fair I have only gone to one other hammam which was in Gumbet, Turkey (a resort area). Though my previous hammam experience was unisex, I didn't think the quality was any different than this hammam, and I paid around 30 TL at the unisex one and... More

The Cagaloglu hammam was my first turkish bath experience and istanbul and unfortunately it was not a good one. Good: the architecture, the atmosphere in the hammam itself, working hours not limited for women (in most placed i found that women can bathe until 4pm and this one offered 10am to 10pm visiting hours for ladies). Bad: ridiculously overpriced, the... More

I must have had a different experience to some of the recent reviewers, or they have read them at the hammam and responded. I was the only male customer this afternoon at about 2:00 and my masseur had about 3 words of English - come, good and Chelsea - but he got his messages across when he wanted me to... More

GOOD: - The building/architecture/history are all amazing, - It is located in old Istanbul and the surrounding streets are nice to walk in. BAD: - For what you get for the price: IT'S A RIPOFF!! You get a 2-minute massage and a 3-minute bath for 50 euros, - Staff are not welcoming, don't want to work and make you feel... More

I have gone here every time I am no Istanbul. This time the quality wasn't equal to other times, there was no oil treatment, no large comb to comb out your hair and the woman hand her hand out for a tip much too often. I didnt stay for the coffee because it made me uncomfortable. There are better ones... More
