“Not worth the entrance fee”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

1500 TZS is the entrance and it takes not more than 10minutes to see this ill maintained place which is messy and dusty and very claustrophobic.Old doors and other incomplete carpentry stuff is lying around.Not worth.

“Not worth the trip”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We swung by here for approximately 5 minutes during our spice tour. Entrance was $2, but I wish I had saved my money. There isn't really anything to see here and it is really small. This isn't like one of the baths you might visit in Turkey, just a 300 square foot white building.

“Quite the find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

I had read about them but it wasn't until our last day in Stone Town that we found them. Actually, it was one of the easier places for us to find, maybe because it was our fourth day in Stone Town. There were no guides, though one man tried to act as one, but we just ignored him. The baths are pretty self explanatory. They need massive repairs, but you can still use your imagination to picture them in use. We loved exploring all the nooks and crannies of the ruins. A low key attraction but fun to visit.

“Don't bother”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

This was one of the places in Stone Town we thought would be worth a visit. However, when we eventually found the place, we were told that the hammam was not operational. From what we could see at the entrance, it looked rather dilapidated and the guy outside was asking for a ridiculously high price to enter, so we didn't bother. I don't suppose we missed much!

Well perserved baths, facinating to what they did in the past.
