The Historical and Luxurious Art of BathingHistorical and Architectural Features“I hope that until the end of days, good hearted friends who take a look at what I have made, when they will perceive the seriousness and the spirit of my effort, can have a fair view and can invoke my name to pray for me.” Mimar Sinan, ArchitectThe Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam in Istanbul was designed and built by Mimar Sinan, the chief Ottoman architect. It was built at the request of Hurrem Sultan (Roxelana), the wife of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent in the 16th century. It was built where the ancient public baths of Zeuxippus used to stand, between the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. The area is also particularly significant as the site where the Temple of Zeus once stood.

I usually don't get all the fuss about spas and massages but this blew my mind! the level of luxury and the amount you'll be pampered is definitely worth the high price tag. I chose the 80 minute/110Euro Massage and it included a bathing session,...More

I suspect that these places were mainly used by people to have their weekly bath, as most places did not have indoor plumbing at the time. There are more than a few of such places in Istanbul and this one is on the high-end of...More

The title says it all! This was a great experience, I have been to Asian bathhouse as before but never a Turkish bath. This was a very enjoyable experience and Sinan was both very professional and friendly. I could not recommend this more!

Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
