Wow! This was so cool! And hot! The Hammam is ancient, but the service is top notch. Akbar and his staff are true professionals. I was shown into the locker room as soon as I arrived, then after I changed into a simple sheet, I was led into the old Hammam with 6 other women who were all very nice. We sat in the heat as the female staff filled buckets of water, then each of us was whisked away for a wash, scrub, hair wash and ginger skin treatment. Then each of us sat in the hot Hammam again, until we were ready for a massage and final rinse. The entire experience was about an hour. It was so relaxing - I feel totally rejuvenated after a long week of travel and tours.
This is really fabulous, and worth 10 times what I paid for it.

That’s quite unique bath place to visit. The bath-house attendants are in the third generation in their roles and believe me know that business. Strongly recommend to anyone(men) who has just free 1,5 hours in Bukhara. The oldest active bath i have ever seen in my life. P.S. It works until the last customer that is very suitable.

I went with 4 friends - we were 2 male and 4 females. I was taken to a side room for my massage. It was a male masseur and he did massage my breast like he was kneading bread which I did thinks was quite strange but new cultures - maybe this was to done thing. Then I sensed some heavy breathing and opened my eyes and he said sorry sorry - so this was totally out of 🖐️. My friends had a nice experience but I would leave this as a warning ⛔️

After arriving in Bukhara from a long drive from Khiva, my partner and I wanted to relax and unwind with a hamman experience. We were able to walk in to the Bozori Kord Hamman without an appointment. The person at the front desk explained the services in terms of sweating in the hot room, exfoliation with the kese, a massage on the central heated platform, a ginger honey paste applied to your back to improve circulation before returning to the hot room to sweat some more, and a final rinse off with cooler water before tea in the front room. The massage was one of the best I have ever had, made better by being on the heated central platform under the great dome of an ancient hamman. I would wholeheartedly recommend this as an authentic experience.

I have been to Hamman's through the eastern world & this is as good as any. I would recommend this 100%. I have a smile on my face remembering what a great experience it was here. You need to make a reservation to be certain to be able to enjoy. They have time for men & also for women. A definite MUST when you ar ein Bukhara!!!

There’s a separate hammam for women, at a short distance away. This is for the men. Set in an old historical building. A fabulous experience. A lot of scrubbing, steaming, massaging and lots of hot water later, you’re a shiny new person!! Must do!

My husband and I visited in winter 2015. I can't remember exactly what we paid (and to be practical, inflation is so great it'd be radically different now anyway), but I believe it would have been about $40US for us both, for a steam, bath and massage.

After arranging an appointment during the day, we arrived in the evening, and were the only visitors there. There were two masseuses, and their two friends hung out in the reception area. I felt uncomfortable removing my clothes, changing into a towel than walking through the reception area with the two additional men watching me. Had I been alone, I would have left at this point.

We were steamed in separate rooms. I was collected by my masseuse, who had removed his top and changed into a towel around his own waist. We were then washed with buckets of cold water over the head and massaged in the same general area.
As a lady, I received a "gentle" massage, while my husband was treated to the full body experience - his definitely sounded firm!

I really didn't enjoy my massage, with my legs being consistently positioned to spreadeagled position and my towel removed from my breasts more than once. The feeling was one of being exposed, rather than relaxation or therapeutic benefit. I was extremely tense, with the massage much too close to my labia than appropriate and I ended my massage sooner than my masseuse preferred.

I then walked across reception in a wet towel to change, with the two friends spectating. The whole hammam was dimly lit and slightly dreamlike, and the reception area was filled with cigarette smoke from the friends.

There's no way I'd have done this without at least one other trusted person being present. I'm not prudish or unadventurous, and have skinny dipped and been naked in public baths in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Japan and more. I've had relaxation and sports massages in many other places, but this was definitely not relaxing or comfortable.

Overall, I still feel creeped out by this visit - enough to write this review almost a year later. Would not recommend to female travellers, especially young, unless with a group of other females.

I've been here 3 times and so far the experience has been good.
If you are expecting a spa, well this isn't.
The facilities are old and run-down, but that is where the charm is.
Staff are friendly and if not busy, will do every treatment properly and unrushed.
Steam room first, then an attendant will wash and scrub you, followed by a massage on top of one of the stone slabs. The massage is done with soap, in front of everybody else.
It can be painful if you are not used to it. Pleasurable and relaxing if you are.
After a 20 - 30 minute massage, you are washed up, and a ginger paste is applied on your back and shoulder, this for me, is the best part, you can lie down on a warm stone for another 10 to 15 minutes.
And then you are washed again.
Tea is served outside, where you will also get sprayed with rose water as a final step.
150,000 Sum or about 20USD.
Women are allowed in, and while some are totally comfortable being massaged by men in front of other men, some may not. And I am sure some men are also not comfortable with women in the same facility.
There is a woman's hammam elsewhere in this historic town.

After reading most of the other reviews on TripAdvisor my friend and I were very nervous about visiting the Hamman. However, I am SO glad we basically ignored the negative reviews and went for it...it was a great experience. I would recommend wearing a swimsuit for comfort, and booking for the evening after everyone has gone for some peace and quiet. The massage is like a strong Thai or Swedish massage, but it was not uncomfortable or painful. There are only male staff working there, but I was asked repeatedly if I was ok, if it was painful etc. We were in the steam room first, then had the strong massage followed by the pleasant ginger powder then we laid on heated marble slabs before being rinsed again. It was a lovely way to spend a chilly evening in Bukhara, and we enjoyed some spiced tea in the reception area afterward too. If you enjoy stronger massages then I would recommend this hamman.

I've been to hammams in many countries, but this is one of the older ones I've been in.

They start you off in the steam room, which isn't so hot and doesn't have much steam, then you get a scrub, a rather brusque massage and then a soap wash on the stone slab. Then they put ginger on your body and you lay on hot slabs for awhile until they throw a bucket of cold water over you and send you off to another area to dry off. Then you have some tea in the lobby.

I always enjoy these experiences so I went twice.

On the second day, it was late in the day (early evening), and they let some women in. They did not appear entirely comfortable with the experience, and some refused the massages. Some went to the lobby and got dressed before the procedure was done.

Mind you, this is a men's facility geared toward men. They are nice enough to allow women in the evening (or rather, they are willing to take money from women), but you can't expect them to cater to women's needs, as per some of the reviews below. The spa is what it is.

The only masseurs are men. He will need to expose your body (in front of others, including men) to massage you properly ... you're wasting your money if you make him massage you through your sheet. There is no privacy, as all customers are mixed in the same prep areas and massaged out in the open. Men will see you walking around in a wet sheet, and you will dry off in the same area as any men that happen to be there.

If any of this sounds like an issue for you, there is a women-only spa in town as well, with female masseuses and (I assume) more privacy.
