This old hammam has en impressive architecture that is worth to enjoy in itself. We men were lucky and got a helper who offered us a little free massage, a free bottle of water and a thourough introduction to the concept. Our wives were not that lucky - their helper was not very helpful, they told us afterwards. Two small... More

Once you are in Istambul you cannot leave the city without trying its traditional baths. The Cagaloglu is a Hamam prepared for tourists, therefore it is quite expensive although you get a discount with the Museum Pass Card. The traditional massage is quite interesting but not very long. When it has finished the masseur is going to ask you for... More

My wife and I visited here in May 2016 and we were very disappointed. There is a lack of direction and no baths as such. You will be segregated in separate areas for males and females before being told to go and sit or lay in a heated room on a marble top for maybe 20 minutes. There is a... More

We originally booked the hamam with AyaSophia Hurrem Hamami, which is ranked #1 in Trip Advisor. Well, our hotel concierge suggested this place instead (he said it is more authentic and not overpriced). We should not have listened to him.... The place is old and authentic but we're not happy with the service. I think it really depends on your... More

Others have written about the lukewarm room, lack of or hurried service and a general sub standard experience. I had a young man who hurried thru a 10 minute warm up, a 10 minute scrub followed by a 10 minute massage and when this was done he said and I quote " I gave you good service, am your friend...

Our last day in Istanbul ended with a special visit to the Cagaloglu Hamam. Built in 1741 by order of Sultan Mahmut I, this gorgeous hamam offered separate baths for men and women. We chose the overpriced, rudimentary wash, scrub and massage treatment. I kept thinking "car wash" as I was being scrubbed, exfoliated, and manhandled by Anja, my personal... More

I read mixed reviews for the Cagaloglu Hamam but decided to try it anyway. Yes a bit touristy and pricey but to experience this traditional hamam was amazing. It was like stepping back in time.

My wife and I had the deluxe treatment which was excellent, a good old scrub down followed by a massage and a soapy wash down. After 4 days walking the streets of Istanbul we both came out totally refreshed.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
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 retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
