It doesn't deserved the score of one even...my partner and I went there three days ago and We were very disappointed... First the told us they do couple sessions but they don't...women and men were in separate areas Secondly, I went in at the same time as another woman and they started to bath us practically at the same time, perhaps with one minute difference....however the woman who bathed me finished really quickly- and the lady who washed the other woman continued washing her for at least 10-15 min more. The lady who washed me did not Scrub my feet I had to do it myself when she finished, and she gave me a look. On the top of that the woman started cleaning the rock where we were lying down with bleach while we were still on it. Terrible!!!! Lastly when my partner came out he told me that the guy who washed him bent him down and stretched him so much that he had neck pain for two days.He also told me that he asked him to stop by touching his leg but he didn't...the communication was impossible since they didn't speak any English, but that was not an issue the issue was all the above and the manners.He also told me that he scrubbed his eye lids and the water they used to rinse him was so hot that it was burning. You might not believe me , go and try it for yourself...my partner suffered so much and it was his first hamman experience that he doesn't want to try another one anymore...I am trying to convince him that they are not all the same but he says that he suffered a lot and that he felt that he was going to be teared in two😂🤣😂I laugh at it but it was not funny for him.

Absolutely appalling value for money and service! Booked in for a manicure and pedicure - the manicure lasted approximately 3 minutes and only consisted of cleaning up the cuticles. There was an additional charge for a hand massage and scrub (which I didn't opt for and was approximately 60tl). The pedicure started off with a tub of water for the feet to soak in - again the pedicure consisted of neatening the cuticles only. There was an additional charge for 70tl for a scrub which I opted for. Only to find it was a type of lotion being applied and then scrubbed with a loafer. It was my last day in Istanbul and just did not have the energy to bring this up for the management. Overll extremely dissatisfied with the whole experience. 0/10

I was recommended this place by the concierge at my hotel. I have to say that the overall experience was poor. I would say that it represents poor value for money considering that I paid 255 Turkish Lira for around 25 minutes in the baths. Considering that I had been very happy with all my other experiences on this visit to Istanbul, I clearly did not save the best until last. It felt rushed and like other reviewers have suggested the pressure to give a tip is considerable. I am certain that if you look around you will find much better places to enjoy a Turkish bath experience than here.

Wow if you are in Istanbul you have to go and have a Turkish Bath!! 415TL each We are typical English couples and the men were a little wary but the staff were excellent and very professional. You are given a scrub glove and ladies a pair of pants to wear. You are laid of the marble slab to open pores and then staff throw hot water over you, scrub you down and lather you up. Amazing feeling and we all said this was the highlight of our trip. Locals did say about going to other baths that would be cheaper but not so clean, we decided to go here (due to all the Convia going around) but think this was down to the very clean changing rooms and facilities, would still go to these ones, as experience was excellent and a big thank you to all the staff, who where very friendly and helpful

I visited the Cemberlitas Hamam last week while visiting Istanbul. I liked that you didn't have to make a reservation & seemed affordable. Looking at the services online, the Indian Head Rub sounded delightful to me. I didn't realize that it only comes with a self-service bath. Since it was my first time, I wish I had the full traditional treatment PLUS the head massage. Things weren't really explained to me, so once I was in my towel and in the hot marble room, I didn't have any idea what I was supposed to be doing. I didn't know what buckets or soap I could use, or which stations I should/could be at. A little more explanation would have been nice. I waited for a while in the massage waiting area, before another woman asked me what I was waiting for & went to get someone to do my treatment. The headrub felt great & I almost fell asleep. I think that with a little more explanation of the facilities/options, or opting for the Traditional treatment, it would have been a more enjoyable visit for me.
