This beautiful hamam or Turkish Bath in the heart of the old walled city of Nicosia( Lefkosa) is simply magnificent after its recent restoration. It is a Turkish bath of dreams,with cool white marble rooms lit by star shaped skylights, multiple treatment and relaxation rooms , well away from the city hustle and bustle, like stepping back to leisurely times. It is easy to miss, as the buildingisnowwellbelowmodern road surface, so the entrance is down a flight of stone stairs leading downtown a lovely arched doorway. Once inside, further steps lead to the entrance, and the helpful staff who explain the treatments available. There are scheduled times former only, women only whilst most afternoons are designated mixed " full touristic" , that is , for visitors and couples. There are several treatments on offer, from traditional scrub and massage to Swedish and aromatherapy massage, and various combinations, all at very modest cost compared to a modern spa.A traditional Turkish scrub and massage is highly rejuvenating, leaving you feeling refreshed, relaxed, with incredibly clean and smooth skin, and all aches and pains miraculously gone, all for the sum of approximately £30, and lasting about 90 mins, though you can relax for as long as you like. There are comfortable changing areas as you enter, and the staff gently guide you through the course of the treatment
