    Newcomers: men, leave your shoes at the stairs to the left, drop all clothes upstairs in your cabin, then enter the Hamam downstairs, left. When you come out, drop the wet towel, you get 3 dry ones :)

    This is for sure one of the must do thing in Istanbul. The atmosphere is fantastic and the stone marble hammam is astounding. Not cheap (30€ min) but the experience is definitely worth the price!

    The hammam, which was made built by Sultan Mahmut I, is also included in the list of ”1000 places to be seen before you die” of The New York Times. Read more

    That was, quite frankly, one of the most awesome experiences ever. Yes, kind of a rip-off, but being hand-bathed on a 300 year old marble slab is divine. Tip well and come early.

    The 300 year old hamam in the center of Sultanahmet. It will be a great experience to have your massage under marble columns and a high-domed ceilings.

    One of the best turkish bath in Istanbul, and don't forget to get a shave with the barber.

    This beautiful building was breathtaking but personally I expected a lot more from the overall experience. It was good but not amazing !!!

    Definitely overpriced as it's a tourist trap. That said is a unique experience, and if your not feeling cheap, is worth a visit. Make sure to haggle to lower the sticker price!

    For men ask for Erol when you make a reservation. He has over 20 years of experience and is fantastic.

    Arguably the most beatiful Turkish bath in Istanbul, Cagaloglu having been built in 1741 for Sultan Mahmut I who wanted to use its revenue to finance a library for Aya Sofya

    A must-visit.Go early if you want to have the place entirely to yourself or are body-conscious because you'll be stark naked during entire process.

    Hamam in good shape, but well over priced for service provided. You can find Hamam with double lenght service on half price

    The masseur will try to upsell. Be ready to bargain. You can bring down the price below the list price.

    They don't accept credit cards. The place is not so good to relax because the massage guy annoys asking for tips.

    Your body will be scrubbed & buffed in the heat by a serious-looking gentleman with a towel wrapped around his waist. Muscles will be pulled & stretched, but you will definitely feel reinvigorated. Read more

    Hamam deneyimim ilk kez burada oldu. Çok güzeldi, rahatladım valla, çok eğlenceliydi. Şehirfırsatlarından indirimli aldık ve çok memnun kaldık. Çamlıca gazoz da ikramı:)

    Hamam bir hayat şartı ama burası harbi tarihi ve tertemiz mis gibi. Yılların eskittiği mermere yatıp keselenmek bambaşka. Tellak umut abiyide teşekkür ederiz hoş sohbeti ile hamamı farklı kıldı

    En eski hamamlardan biri. Ayasofya camii için gelir sağlama amacı yapılmıştır. Önemli isimlerin ziyaret ettiği bu Hamam mimarisi ile de çok şık bir yapı. 100 tl civarı bir ücreti var

    Был два раза:1-восторг, 2-не айс :-/ сервис ориентирован на поток туристов. За 60€ получаешь 3 мин массажа и возможность брязгаться. в целом ради новых впечатлений стоит разок посетить, но не более ✌️
