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

My husband and myself visited this hamam yesterday, paid 150 Turkish Lire each. What a waste of our time and money! There was no interior design to experience, bare walls and pipes visible every where, deserted with hardly any customers inside. The masseurs we lazying and sleeping around inside the actual quarters of hamam which consisted of one large hamam... More

Very uncomfortable bath experience in this apparently reputed Haman. The masseur told me on three occasions that there would not be a problem if I have him a big tip, and suggested 30 to 50 lira as a good amount for a an English man. Very happy to get out.

I decided to pay the €40 entrance fee + massage and overall I am quite happy with the experience - it definitely is a once in a lifetime thing. This "spa" offered no extra frills which would have been nice given the cost: the change rooms are very basic, there are no robes (only towels), no tea is offered (you... More

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
