“The original hamam experience ”
The cinili Hamam, located in uskudar, was built by Kosem Sultan in 1640. For many years it remained closed and almost forgotten, but in 1964 it was transferred to private ownership and reopened its doors to customers. Known for its historically...more

There are many hamams in Istanbul and you soon notice who caters to tourists and who has stayed true to the traditions.
Cinili Hamam is certainly one that is popular with locals and for good reason.
Clean and well maintained, without any frills.
Great experience and about half cost what you would pay in Europe side of Istanbul, especially in Sultanahmet district. It was built in 1640 by Sultan Köse. This place is clean, well maintained and primarily visited by locals inhabitants. It has 2 separate section (entrances)...More
People were very friendly and welcoming. Other reviews have described the process and it is accurate. To get there take the ferry to Uskudar and then dolmus or bus and walk down hill and then to the right when they put you out. The current...More
One of those "must do" activities is to experience a Turkish Hammam! You can find a Hammam everywhere from the Hilton to a random neighbourhood. I decided to try something authentic and a friend had researched and tried this one out and said it was...More
The Turkish bath was an amazing experience. You walk in and they give you a private room with a bed for changing and if you want to take a rest to relaxing. The price was very good as well. We were brought down to this...More

we just came back from this hammam and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Paid only 37 Turkish lira for combo which is scrub, massage. SepArate section for men and women, very pleasant and friendly staff. I would recommend taking your own towel. Lots of local people...More
Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighborhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand
residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.
