I think the only reason to visit this place is just to see how hammams operated several centuries ago and how did they look like. The scrab, steam, massage, rooms, lockers and all other things are very average. The guys working there are good fellas,...More

This hamman is usually for men only, but at certain times it is also open for women. Since i am travelling with my partner, we decided to go there together. However, it was a very uncomfortable experience and I would not recommend to go there...More

What a fantastic experience in a gorgeous setting! Once we had changed into bathers/underwear, the 6 of us were provided with robes and sandals and ushered through the complex to a steam room. After 15 minutes or so of sweating and relaxing, we were led...More

Well worth a visit - one of the more beautiful things to visit in Bukhara. Don't bother paying to go into everything here. Somethings are as awesome from the outside.

I visited in July. The cost was $100k som for sauna, scrub and massage. The staff are kind and complete professionals. The Bukhara style of massage was most interesting, they climb over you and pull you up like a pretzel. However, there is nothing to...More

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...More

Yes, it's expensive. And, yes, it's probably a ripe off by Uzbek standard. It cost 90,000 som to do a bath, which including 1) laying on the heated stone ground of the bath house; 2) someone doing a full-body bath for you; 3) someone putting...More

This is one of only three surviving hammers in Bukhara and dates back to the 16th century. I treated myself to the full package involving a massage and tea as well as the steam room. If you have one and a half hours this is...More
