There are many excellent hammams in Istanbul: this is NOT one of them. Go somewhere else to find a more authentic, less over-touristy - and less over-priced - experience.

I booked this hamami specifically because it was unisex/for couples. I realise single sex is more authentic, but my husband can struggle with heat sometimes and I felt more confident knowing I was always with him. Plus, it was our wedding anniversary trip! The hamami...More

This is one of the few baths that allow men and women in the same area which is why we selected this place. Of course it caters to tourist, but did NOT feel like a tourist trap. We felt that we got an authentic experience....More

this is the real experience of Turkish Hamam, you can enjoy with your loved one together. Be prepared that (pre-heat) waiting time might be tuff, then you get a pleasant expirience

Loved it! Authentic and extremely hot with telliacs exactly as they are supposed to be. Much more authentic experience than the tourist traps near the Blue Mosque. Well worth it for what you pay and they accept couples. I would recommend.

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.

Yes females can wear Bikinis and males keep a towel around their waist. Although it is men who do the work, there is a professional level that makes the bath appropriate and nice.
