I decided to try this place because of the rating on trip advisor. I thought a local small place would give me a real feel of the traditional Turkish bath. My very first thought walking in was it was not well lit and looked quite run down. I was given a small room to change. The plastic bench to put my clothes on was all torn and you can see the foam. Then I was asked to lie down on a center piece made of marble tiles where I waited 15 minutes for the lady to come scrub me down. This center piece was for everybody to get scrubbed down at the same time. All the dead skin was floating around. After that it was the massage which was really not great at all. After that the lady foams you up and rubs your body with the foam. Then she pours a couple of tubs of water on you for a rinse. The tubs are recycled old yogurt buckets. Then I'm on a plastic chair where she washes my hair and rinses it but not thoroughly. Then she says I could use the sauna. The sauna was not comfortable. Just didn't look clean. The towel I got was damp to begin with. There was not a tub or pool with hot water for you to soak in. No TUB!!
I would not even attempt another Turkish bath house because of this experience. No bath! What is the point of a bath house? Buckets of water poured on me doesn't really cut it. And no dryer for my hair and area to put your make-up on.
If you are looking for a real BATH experience, please try any public bath in JAPAN or Korean baths. They really know the meaning of bathing for relaxation.
