For those used to high touristic standards and comfortability this is not the right place, especially if traveling with kids. They should inform that the place is not fit for kids, too hot and without any alternative place for them, such as swimming pools or...More

It was our first time in hamam. It was strange, but good strange. Very nice personnel, it is not dated. It is what it is, an old real Turkish style hamam.

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside

I am not sure that this facility allows children. The heat inside the bath is significant.. it may not be suitable for children. The staff speak English at this place so a phone call could answer all of your questions.
