All reviews oil massage turkish bath marble slab hot marble bubble wash traditional package hot room dead skin men and women bikini bottoms disposable underwear authentic experience turkish lira grand bazaar scrub soap lockers
The visit to this underground place is interesting, nothing out of this world but makes you wonder how the were able to build this place back in the days!! The Medusa Heads are a must. If you want to take pics, make sure you have...More
I paid 220 lira for the traditional package which was a total disappointment! With the extra for a juice that made me uneasy (due to lack of sanitary conditions and cleaning of juicer from all day use...) 10 lira and the tip for the scrubber...More

i'm agree with all people had a bad experience with that
There are three good Turkish bath (hamam) in Istanbul.Çemberlitaş, Cagaloglu and Galatasaray. Çemberlitaş is one of the best.
It is clean and hygenic and the service is not bad. Do not forget to have a cup of Turkish yea after the bath.
A family member recommended that we include a Turkish Bath in our holiday trip. We chose this location after reading a number of reviews. It was a wonderful experience. My husband raved about his bath and massage and I had a similar experience. We didn't...More
Dirty, disgusting place. Horrible staff. Worst hamam ever. I usually love hamams but this place is not just very overpriced, but also dirty with bored pushy staff demanding tips and doing a bad job. I'd rather wash myself in a public toilet. This place is...More
Vile woman who think they have the right to push you around. I felt totally intimidated by the women staring and their body language. Left after 5 minutes. Disgusting place ! People and hygiene everything about it was disgusting.
I was so excited for my first Turkish bath experience, I decided to go the deluxe, which included hamami (Turkish Bath scrub) & 30-minute massage (Which most people opt for)
I went into the bathhouse and I waited for my turn, (Confused about what to...More
Similar experience today to that of 'travellingpaula' on 27 Oct. Recommended by hotel as cheaper than other closeby - 1 hour classic massage was more like 20 mins waiting/wondering what to do and 10 mins ordinary massage - asked reception lady what was going on...More
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
the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighborhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.

It might be quite difficult to take in a camera if you went as a regular customer - too much water around. The best thing is simply to ask. Good English is always spoken at reception. If you get an initial “no” simply offer some money - in this environment tips will buy a lot which is impossible when there is no compensation.
Hi Everyone, My teen son and I (age 14) will be in Istanbul soon. He was interested in trying a Turkish bath (Hamami is the better name for this I think?). After reading on the forum, I think Cemberlitas Hamami would be a good fit for us. Wanted to make sure that teens are allowed and would generally feel comfortable here? (he's a pretty open-minded, well-traveled kid). He in no way wants to have an Oedipus moment and see his mom at any level of undress! Also, would this be walking distance...More

If you and your teenage son went to Cemberlitas, he would have to go into the male section while you went onto the female section. If you are both are happy with this, it would be a great experience for you both. You would have a great female hamam experience and, if he is confident, he would also have a unique experience in the most historic of surroundings in a uniquely male environment. If that would be a bit too much for him, and if you want a bath together, you could go to the...More

Turkish Bath (4 Replies)
I plan on doing the Turkish bath at Cemberlitas Hamami for the sake of experience and I am undecided on which service to choose They give the option of self-service, basically we bring our own soap and shampoo and wash by ourselves and the other option is to have a worker at the bath to wash us and even do a massage with all bath supplies provided The self-service cost is 60 TL (about $21 US) and the service bath is 90 TL (about $31 US dollars) plus tips. I am on a budget for my trip so...More

Part of the whole experience is to be washed and scrubbed by an attendant. That is what makes it so memorable and so unique. Definitely worth it :)
Hamam With Steam Room (5 Replies)
HI, I might be looking for something that doesn't but I'm wondering about a hamam with a steam room? I went to Cemberlitas Hamami today and I did lay on the stone but it was just lukewarm. I didn't feel any pores opening or anything. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

I went to Kiliç Ali Paşa Hamamı a few days ago and it was absolutely wonderful! The room as well as the marble slab was definitely warm and I could literally feel my pores opening up while sweating. I highly recommend you go there and I'm still annoyed at myself for now having gone sooner. It's just across the Tophane tram stop next to Kiliç Ali Paşa Camii.
